“We’re at a time when people are making more empowering songs. But I was listening to Janet Jackson, and she starts pretty much all her songs with “I have control over my body and my thing.” You forget that empowerment was always a big part of music, especially for female artists. We went to a comedy show last night, and Whitney Cummings was doing stand-up. She was brilliant, saying, like, women have been empowered for a very long time, but now it’s, “Oh, someone’s listening to us? Let’s go crazy!” We’re not used to being listened to. Now we’re taking full advantage of that fact and speaking about things that are really important to us.” – Lipa for ELLE US.
