In an interview with Zane Low, Taylor Swift described how society appreciated her work at the beginning of her career.
The singer shared her view on sexism and noted how unfair they are to creative women, especially when it comes to their personal lives. Swift released her first album in 2006 at the age of 16. According to the singer, many took her songs about personal relationships and partings lightly and thought that Taylor had no talent for writing songs.
My songwriting was perceived as fun, but not as a skill and craft. I came across this quite early, and this was the first time I realized what injustice was. If a woman in show business wants love, money and success, this is considered something wrong. It’s like women shouldn’t want all these things, unlike men,
– said Taylor. The singer noted that at the time of the beginning of her career, it was not accepted to talk about the problems of misogyny, but now “incredible progress has occurred.”
Swift previously stated that it had learned to cope with hate attacks.
If I’m wrong, I apologize first. But when I am mistreated, I can fend for myself. The main thing to remember is that nothing can stop you from moving on,
– shared the singer.
