Tove Lo explains how Swedish feminists are different than Americans and we're a little surprised
Tove Lo is a feminist, but her own kind of feminist, and we are totally on board with her.
In an interview with New York Magazine, the Swedish singer opened up about a lot of different topics, one of which was the difference between feminism in America and in Sweden. The 28-year-old singer has always marched to the beat of her own drum and her views on life, drugs and music are uniquely hers.
After talking about her initial rise to fame back in 2014, Lo explained that she did kind of fall off the face of the earth when her vocal chords had a cyst on them and she needed surgery and a two-year recovery process.
“It’s about reclaiming the female hard-on,” Lo told New York Magazine about her new music. She further explained her audience and the people her music is geared towards as a similar group who would be fans of Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham, who she is also a fan of.
There is however a difference between Sweden’s take on feminism, which is more open and obvious, while in America Lo thinks it’s more shocking to talk about.
