Male executives dominate music industry: Lily Allen

Los Angeles, Nov 18 : Singer Lily Allen says that women are controlled by male executives in the music industry.

According to the 28-year-old, females are urged to keep their mouth shut as its a men-dominated world, reports contactmusic.com.

"I've always been called 'mouthy' when, in fact, I'm just talking. In the music industry, women have always been controlled by male execs, told to do the Kate Moss thing. Keep your mouth shut, or people will laugh at you. They've been talking about us like this for years, basically," Allen told The Observer magazine.

"The Fear" singer, who is returning to the music industry after a four-year break, says things have changed since she launched her career in 2005.

"It's nice, but it's weird. I'm totally out of touch. When I first started, in terms of girls it was just me and Amy Winehouse. Now, 're-entering the marketplace', it's all girls," she said.

However, she doesn't think the hits the artists produce are real because their songs are written by other people.

"Nobody says anything real today. Most of those girls have their songs written by other people. It annoys me, because 'eh oh eh oh ahh' is not a chorus - that's not a point where I feel 'we're connecting', you know? I need a narrative," Allen said.
