Steppin’ Out magazine spoke with Dido and asked the singer what she felt about singers such as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Destiny’s Child star Beyonce Knowles, or even now Jewel stripping their clothes to sell albums.
“It’s weird, isn’t it? First of all, I think Christina Aguilera is an amazing talent. I think she has a great voice. But it’s weird, isn’t it,” she said. “Look at Beyonce, who is an extraordinary talent. She writes, she sings, she produces, and she looks incredible. And trust me, I’m a woman and I know it’s great to show off every asset you’ve got. But what I’ve noticed in this society is that somehow wearing almost nothing has detracted from the other things in other people’s eyes. People see artists like Britney Spears as something less because of it. It’s really weird because you would think, well if you look that hot, why can’t you show it off and be really sexy? Do you know what I mean?”
