Charli XCX Says 'There's No Cookie-Cutter Pop Star'

Charli XCX sticks her tongue out for the camera in this feature from Paper magazine’s Summer Music Issue, now on newsstands.

Here’s what the 22-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On being successful: “I think there’s this twenty-first-century idea of what sells records, especially within females, but there’s no cookie-cutter pop star. Sometimes I think record labels still try and cram artists into that, but the artists who are successful are the ones that tell them to f-ck off.”

On misogyny: “There is definitely still a strain of it. It’s sh-t sometimes that there are literally no women working at record labels, and female artists tend to get more questions about their validity as creatives, whereas male artists in the same position don’t. It’s so frustrating.”

On saying the right thing: “I don’t think I’m the type of person who always says the right thing. In fact, I always say the wrong thing at the wrong time.”

Charli XCX Doesn't Read About Herself On The Internet Anymore

Charli XCX lights up the stage during her performance on Le Grand Journal during the 2015 Cannes Film Festival on Friday night (May 22) in Cannes, France.

The 22-year-old “Boom Clap” singer is on the June/July cover of Teen Vogue with Paper Towns actor Nat Wolff.

“It used to stress me out when I was younger, because I would take everything really, really personally. But, to be honest, I don’t read it too much anymore. No, it doesn’t really bother me,” Charli shared about if she reads stuff about herself on the internet.

She added, “My assistant sends me screen grabs of, like, really funny Daily Mail clips when they write about me, and there’s always hideous and hilarious comments.”

Charli also opened up about the most bizarre thing she’s seen in Asia: “I went to a cat café, and that was really bizarre. It was about 50 cats in a room, and old Japanese ladies playing with them for hours. I feel like the cats just wanted to be left alone.”

FYI: Charli is wearing a sass & bide black skirt and top.

“This sport is so well-filmed on television that it’s very hard to get the same feeling in the cinema on screen like Martin Scorsese did with Raging Bull. But this film is so strong and credible. We believe Jake is a boxer first. When I was watching the fight, Pacquiao vs. Mayweather, I remembered the movie. Jake is very extraordinary. Film after film he is having quite a career and this film is to me maybe one of his best,” festival delegate general Thierry Fremaux shared at the screening.

Earlier in the day, Jake and Sienna Miller were spotted hitting the Aioli lunch, which was hosted by Cannes mayor David Lisnard.
