Pink has no time for BS!
As we reported, in response to the #GrammysSoMale controversy, Recording Academy president Neil Portnow made headlines when he said women in music need to “step up” if they “want to be part of the industry.”
On Monday, the What About Us singer shared a handwritten note on Twitter SLAMMING Portnow’s backward comments as women totally “owned music this year.”
The 38-year-old wrote:
“Women in music don’t need to ‘step up’ ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ women have been stepping since the beginning of time. Stepping up, and also stepping aside. Women OWNED music this year. They’ve been KILLING IT. And every year before this. When we celebrate and honor the talent and accomplishments of women, and how much women STEP UP every year, and how much women STEP UP every year, against all odds, we show the next generation of women and girls and boys and men what it means to be equal, and what it looks like to be fair.”
