Alessia Cara Wants the Industry to Stop Pitting Women Against Each Other

Alessia Cara Wants the Industry to Stop Pitting Women Against Each Other

Alessia Cara covers the new “Grammys 2017 Preview” issue of Billboard magazine, alongside Maren Morris and Chance the Rapper!

Here’s what the 20-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On what she’d change about society: “I’d like to shut off all the noise and allow people to be creative without all the judgments and standards that we think we have to follow. The bar is set so high for women, and it doesn’t really exist for men.”

On what the industry can do better for women and artists of color: “One thing would be stop trying to pit [women] against each other all the time. Why does [competition] always have to be portrayed as a feud? You don’t really see that with men.”

On her thoughts on this year’s election: “I’m just going to say that I’m very lucky to be Canadian.”
