The ‘Rather Be’ singer says women ‘get judged more easily’ in the music business. Singer Jess Glynne has spoken out about the challenges still faced by women in the music industry today. The 26-year-old told the Radio Times that there’s still a double standard when it comes to how men and women are perceived, with an outspoken woman being labelled a ‘diva’, while a man is thought of as ‘tough’.–GN

“As a woman I feel it’s genuinely harder and I feel you need to stand for something otherwise you get lost,” Glynne said. “Women get judged more easily. A girl can make a fuss and she’s a diva but a guy does the same and he’s ‘tough’. There’s a complete double standard.”
