Tinashe Blames Beyonce And Rihanna’s Success, And Her Mixed Race, For Her Career Stalling — The Internet’s Not Having It


The interviewer made a point of mentioning that the pop star’s cell phone background was a generic picture of a Grammy. Tinashe is motivated, determined, and not amount of delays can discourage her.


“Things haven’t always gone according to my original plan. However long it takes, I know I will get to my end goal. I’m never going to stop. I will make music forever,” Tinashe said.

A lot of her struggles with success in the music business comes from the misogyny that female artists often have to contend with. Her thirst for knowlege, she explains, was seen more as a character flaw than professionalism.  “There’s a lot of sexism in the music business. A lot of sexism. As far as female producers or female engineers … when you’re in these studios, it’s all men. It is so rare that they’d not even expect me to have an opinion.”

“Its so much easier for male artists.” Tinashe got some real heat after calling out her record label RCA on focusing more on ex-One Direction member Zayn’s first solo excursion, while putting her’s on the back-burner.
