Dua Lipa, the pop star, has spoken up against the sexism that pervades the music industry - suggesting that women find it very difficult to get recognized.

"For a female artist, it takes a lot more to be taken seriously if you're not sat down at a piano or with a guitar," she told GQ.

"For a male artist, people instantly assume they write their own music, but for women, they assume it's all manufactured."

In possession of a Brit award-winning debut album, the 22-year-old helped the write the majority of the songs it featured, over 130, she specified.

"I learned a lot from the co-writers that were coming in to help me - the bones of how to write a proper song".

Her single, Last Dance, she said, "was the song [that helped her] figure out what [her] sound was going to be. The beat, the darkness, the lyrics, the pop chorus.

"It's the one I would take to new producers and say: 'Right, this my sound.'"
