"We all know it's a feminist issue. My friend Ed (Sheeran), no one questions whether he writes everything... It's a little discouraging that females have to work so much harder to prove that they do their own things. I see Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea having to prove that they write their own raps or their own lyrics, and it makes me sad, because they shouldn't have to justify it." Taylor Swift hates having to constantly justify the fact she writes her own songs.
