Charli XCX on the music industry: 'I did start to get angry at the way I was being treated.'

Songstress Charli XCX has revealed that she wasn't taken seriously for a long time as a singer-songwriter because of her age and gender. 

During an interview with Miss Vogue magazine, the beauty explained that she has experienced struggles within the music industry that she believes were down to the fact that she is a young female artist:

"I was always drawn to artists who had that raw, wild edge. But as I got older and began making music myself, I did start to get angry at the way I was being treated. I was 16 and the men at record labels never took me seriously. It's never been much if a problem from producers and songwriters, it's always been the suits. Of course, there have been instances in the studio when I felt like I wasn't being taken seriously, because I'm young or because I'm a girl."

The 'Boom Clap' sensation, meanwhile, is currently supporting Katy Perry on tour and the final date of her Prismatic Tour opening slot will take place on March 22 at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.
