    Kim Petras on pop songwriting, gender, being a role model and cheating ex-boyfriends

    Dan is joined by rising star Kim Petras to discuss how her career launched from the internet, being a role model and her new album. At one point in her life, Kim was labeled as the youngest person to have sex reassignment surgery and after much media and press, she became a role model for the transgender community. Since then she has launched a pop career and has elevated within that role model figure for transgender people within the music industry. She discusses how YouTube and having an online presence helped her when she made her move to Hollywood and how putting out her music independently has helped shaped her into the artist she is today. She opens up about catching an ex-boyfriend cheating inspired many tracks on her new album ‘Clarity’ and how working with her friends made the experience into a positive one.

Robbie-Robbie ,

5th Harmony 5 Stars. Dan Wootton 1 Star.

Dan there is a fine line between journalistic integrity/pertinent questioning and rudeness. I went into this thinking I was going to agree with your perspective and analysis of what happened in this interview. However, you came across as difficult, deliberately provocative and almost determined to prove that you "were in charge" and controlling the conversation to the detriment of these amazing ladies. This time, you came across as a rather spoilt "hack" determined to through shade at the girls. Your Sun Bizarre Column was used by you to stick the knife in further. Shame on you. 5th Harmony you are brilliant. You handled yourselves with grace and your PR person was absolutely right to intervene. Rob.
