Charli appears on the September cover and talks about writing Sucker in a hotel in Sweden, working with Rivers Cuomo and Rostam Batmanglij and whether she thinks the days are gone when sexism dictated the media profile of female pop stars:
I wish I could say yes, but I don’t think so. Maybe it is just a pop music thing, but I don’t feel like it’s changed. Now, more than ever, I get songs sent to me by people who think they should be writing my songs for me. In interviews, people are surprised when I say I wrote something myself. That is frustrating. They automatically assume I didn’t in the first place.
