Los Angeles: Singer Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has blamed "older men behind the scenes", who "dominate" the business for dictating what female artists wear.
The 31-year-old former Girls Aloud star feels it is fine for women to wear glamorous outfits but she thinks they do not need to sexualise themselves to promote music, reported Stellar Magazine.
"I mean, sexy and all that is great to an extent, but you shouldn't have to sexualise yourself to be selling music. I'm sure some women are naturally like that.
"They objectify themselves because they want to be like that. Which is fine. No judgement at all. But sometimes it's just unnecessary. If you are going to be explicit with your lyrics, dress differently. It's a bit much at the moment, I feel," the "Crazy Stupid Love" she said.
