Billionaire daughter DJ Cuppy has revealed that she used to be a
feminist but stopped being one and she explained the reason for the
change in mindset.
In an interview with City FM, the DJ said she used to consider
herself a feminist until she realized she didn’t understand it.
I don’t like people that are hypocrites, right? So people are
out there speaking about women’s rights and then behind
closed doors they are doing kind of like crazy things…
I just feel like I will never come out as a feminist. I’m in a
male-dominated industry and I have certain scenarios
where I have to… I’m not saying I have to water myself
down, but I deal with men on a day to day basis and
I realize that, they’re always going to think they’re better
“And that’s the issue that feminism addresses,” the host
replied at this point.
Right. But I don’t think it’s gonna solve it.
It’s almost like me, I used to have this issue with where
people thought my dad made my career. But I’m like, you
know what, I can’t kill myself over it. You cannot change
the way people think, all you can change is what you do
and how you act.
I cannot change what you think about me. I can try and
influence it but you’re entitle to your opinion.
So if we go around as women, trying to change the way
men think, we’re going to tire ourselves out. What we
should focus on our own energy, focus on achieving our
own goals and working on our own selves.
I think it’s important to talk about these issues and bring
them to the surface but we must also limit the amount of
attention you give them because, lets be honest, the more
energy you put into one thing, the less you can into
