“You know a lot of people say, ‘Why did that woman wait 30 years? And I’m like f–k off,” she reportedly said. “They don’t wait 30 years.

“Almost every woman in the music industry has been assaulted, harassed, raped. It’s ubiquitous — more in music, even, than film,” she told The Sunday Times. “What, sex, drugs and rock’n’roll?

The singer is married to rapper Mario ‘Souleye’ Treadway, who is the father of her three children: daughter Onyx, four, and sons Ever, 10, and Winter, two.
