Don’t mess with Annie Lennox. She was last seen leading a protest against Israeli military attacks on Gaza earlier this year and now she’s biting the hand that feeds her.
“The music industry is a bloody nightmare,” the Eurythmics singer said (via Sindh Today). “The egos, the slightly criminal elements, the betrayers, the ones who want to screw you, the ones who were in it for this, that or the other.” We’ve heard a lot of musicians criticize the music industry as greedy and artistically stifling, but “criminal?”
In order to protect her children from the “vile” world of corporate music, Lennox said she is trying to stay out of the public eye, adding, “Sometimes I’ve been so shocked at how vile somebody has been. But you just have to let it go, otherwise it could drive you mad.”
