There has been a lot of talk going on in Hollywood over the past few years, about the fact that women in the acting industry do not get given as much respect as the men in the business, and it seems that this is not the only area of the entertainment industry that has this problem, which is so shocking in this day and age and needs to change sooner rather than later.
Music superstar Ne-Yo has been talking about working in the music industry and he happened to touch on the fact that women in the music business do not seem to get the respect that they deserve. Ne-yo says that he has never been able to get his head around the way women are so often portrayed in songs by male artists.
Ne-Yo explained, "The main elements of being a gentleman are courtesy and respect, and one of the unfortunate things about music today is you don't hear a lot of courtesy and respect, especially for women. That's always been an issue for me. I just never grasped the concept of singing the word b**ch. You are walking, talking, living, breathing billboards and the product that you're selling is yourself."
With that said, there are a lot of hugely talented female stars in the music industry who do manage to get the respect they deserve, although we completely understand what Ne-Yo is saying and it is about time the women in the entertainment industry were given respect.
