“From the moment I stepped into this industry, I’ve always had to fight for my ideas and for my voice to be heard. When I got signed, I had just turned 16. I felt like I had to continuously have these confrontations with older men who were doubting my ideas because I was a woman, because I was 16. I actually think it doesn’t even matter what age you are or what sex—though that does play into it sometimes—you always have to fight in any kind of creative world because nobody knows your own brain and your own creative ideas better than you do,” Charli shared in the issue, which features Taylor Swift on the cover.
