Jameela Jamil Fires Back at People Critizing Her Producing Credit on Boyfriend James Blakes Album
The ‘Good Place’ alum also doubles down on her statement in an Instagram post, in which she writes, ‘James had to fight me to take credit on this album because I was so Preemptively sick of the internet.’
AceShowbiz –Jameela Jamil has responded to people questioning her producing credit on her boyfriend James Blake‘s latest album “Friends That Break Your Heart”. As many people believed that James was just being nice by giving her a credit on the album, the actress reminded everyone that she has a background in music.
Defending herself, Jameela wrote on Twitter, “A lot of mostly women insisting I couldn’t possibly have actually worked on my boyfriend’s music, and that he must have just credited me to be nice.” She went on noting, “I was a DJ for 8 years, and studied music for 6 years before that. You are part of the problem of why women don’t pursue producing.”
“The Good Place” alum went on to double down on her statement in an Instagram post. “Man. James had to fight me to take credit on this album because I was so Preemptively sick of the internet. Especially after this same thing happened on his last record that I worked for countless hours on,” so the actress began her post.
The “Legendary” judge went on to note that people seemingly refused to believe that she could actually produce a good song. “An additional hilarious side to this misogyny is that they only don’t believe in my musical input when they love the songs. If they don’t like a song then suddenly I CAN produce and it’s all my fault, and I produced the whole thing alone! LOL,” she said.
“In the end I took the credit I deserved because of how important it is for women who work on music to visibly exist in the space of music production, and because I would want any of you who follow me to take ownership of what is rightfully your achievements,” she explained. “I hope you’re taking credit for your work wherever you are in the world right now. I hope you know that if you’re not being believed over your achievements. … Even when I don’t credit myself, my boyfriend just quietly credited me.”
Concluding her post, Jameela wrote, “We are in this s**t together. Representation matters. It is not our responsibility to be believed, liked, understood or approved of. You just carry on as you are. I’m right there with you. Giving everyone the finger!”
