Chrissie Hynde recently said she's "more relaxed now," but she'll always have her signature ‘edge’ as noted in a recent social media post about the ‘Barbie’ film.
She wrote, "I see Barbie is generating even MORE interest because it was directed by the first woman to make a film with profits of $1 billion.”
"Who gives a [crap] if a woman directed it? All that matters is if the direction was good. And who gives two [craps] about how much money it’s made?"
"This is the reason we see all of our artistic industries collapsing. Apparently g------- rules. Kali Yuga!"
This comes on the heels of her comments on shows like Sex and the City “put the feminist movement way back,” adding that there is a new inequality, especially in the arts. Chrissie said, “When I grew up in the '60s, as a teenager, I thought we fixed it. You know, I thought we could move on from that, and women could do what they wanted.”
Chrissie and The Pretenders start a run of shows opening for Guns n' Roses today in Hershey, Pennsylvania, along with their own headlining shows.
The Pretenders will release a new album, Relentless, on September 15th.
