Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

I don't really believe so. I think you have to be aggressive in this business male or female...weakness is the thing that holds you back and gets you manipulated by users. I don't personally believe it has anything to do with gender.
