Charli XCX: 'I'm giving a middle finger to everyone who thought I'd fail'

Hitmaker Charli XCX graces the June 2015 cover of ASOS and in the accompanying interview, she opens up about her genre of music and plans for the future. 

Speaking about her signature sound, the hitmaker explained that she's proud of it because so many people didn't think she would make it: "It’s like The Ramones and Barbie had sex… it’s loud, it’s in your face, but it’s like… pink and sassy too. It’s a big middle finger to all the people who thought that I’d get dropped or wasn’t a credible artist.”

The beauty went onto add that she is making an effort to carve out a path of longevity for herself: "I’m stubborn and I have goals… I want to have my fingerprints all over radio forever, not necessarily me singing the songs… but writing. I’ve set the bar very high for myself.”

During an interview with Maxim, Charli XCX admitted that her ultimate goal is to build an empire: "I have a business mind, I have a real drive - I want to have an empire. I want to have more of a legacy, and I think just because I wear what I wear, and am a pop star, doesn't mean I can't have that."
