Charli XCX feels very supported by her fellow female artists and doesn't see any competition between them
Charli XCX doesn't feel in "competition" with her fellow female artists.
The 'Boom Clap' hitmaker insists she feels very "supported" by herself and the "amazing females in the music industry".
She said: "I don't think it's competitive. I think that's what the media makes it out to be. I think it's harder for women in the sense that there's always the question of 'How does it feel to be a woman in music?' I think that adds an unnecessary pressure.
"And also I feel like there's always more questions asked if you're a female like 'Did you write your own song, really?' 'Did you produce your own song, really?' Whereas sometimes with men it's just taken as a given that they did."
And the 23-year-old is looking forward to Adele's new release.
She told Billboard magazine: "Dude. Ahhhh. She's just going to like kill us all and make us all worthless. It's just going to be amazing.
"There are so many amazing females in the music industry right now. The topic of feminism is continuously being discussed and that's really incredible.
"I feel very supportive of the females around me and I think that's really integral to what I do."
