Music industry 'harder for females'

Pop star Rita Ora believes it has "always been harder for females" to succeed in the music industry, as she prepares to take up coaching duties on BBC1 talent show The Voice.

The Hot Right Now singer said she has been "very vocal about women sticking together" but many people were "scared" to use the word "feminist".

Ora, 24, has replaced Kylie Minogue as the sole female panellist on the next series of The Voice, alongside Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson.

She told the Mirror: "Without pulling the female card, I think it has always been harder for females in all aspects.

"Whenever we have an opinion, it always seems to be taken out of proportion. As a woman in this industry, it has always been a bit about proving yourself, so I'm proud to be on a panel with such successful men.

"I think people take the word 'feminist' really seriously and I think people are scared to use that word. In this industry, all the heads of labels are men. I have always been very vocal about the women sticking together."

The Voice begins on January 10 at 7pm on BBC1.
