Grimes has said she has been pestered for sex by male producers.
The Canadian artist – whose real name is Claire Boucher – was asked by Rolling Stone for her opinions on Kesha’s lawsuit against her producer/label boss, Dr Luke whom she has accused of rape and responded by saying male producers commonly expect sex.
‘I don’t know enough about the specifics of that situation because it seems very complicated’ Grimes said.
‘But I will say that I’ve been in numerous situations where male producers would literally be like ‘We won’t finish the song unless you come back to my hotel room.’
If I was younger or in a more financially desperate situation maybe I would have done that.
I don’t think there are few female producers because women aren’t interested.
It’s difficult for women to get in.
It’s a pretty hostile environment’.
