Debbie Harry Was Sick Of Songs About Women Being Victimized By Love

”I was dead sick and tired of all of these songs by the R&B girls, the trios and stuff. They were all victimized by love. I was sick of it. I didn’t want to portray myself or women as victims … That was one of the things that was really clear. I think I can take credit for having clarity about that … I don’t think I tried to be an important feminist, I didn’t have that kind of clarity, but I had a stubbornness and an independence and that came across So that was good. I think that it was an idea that was bound to happen, I was just in the right place at the right time.”

– Debbie Harry talks to the The Sunday Times Magazine what inspired her music. Damn. She’s so badass it hurts. Excuse me, gonna go listen to Blondie now. [XPose]
