Lady Gaga talks about her experience of the music industry:

“What I really want to say is that it is really hard sometimes for women in music. It’s like a fucking boys club that we just can’t get into.”

[…]

“I tried for so long, I just really wanted to be taken seriously as a musician for my intelligence more than my body ever in this business. You don’t always feel like when you’re working that people believe that you have a musical background, that you understand what you’re doing because you’re a female.”

(You can read the original article in People, where the writer feels the need to mention more than once that the speech was ’emotional’ and also described it as ‘poignant,’ or you can read it on Gawker, where they do not. Up to you.)
