Grammy-winning singer Tems opened up about the lengths she goes to avoid unnecessary distractions of producers while recording in the studio.

Recently while appearing on the ‘Flow with Korty show’, ‘Me&U’ hit maker revealed that she wears baggy clothes when she is recording so that the producers are not distracted by physique.

Because of my objective, which is: I just want to make music, I don’t really care about politics or anything here. I just want to make to learn,” says Tems.

She added that, I want to learn and if me being attractive is disturbing you, it’s stopping me from achieving my goal, I’m going to help you.

I am in my alpha mode cause I want you to not be seduced by me. And I’m not gonna be like ooh, it’s your choice’’

The young songstress acknowledged that while it may be a person’s choice if they find themselves attracted to her, she prefers to keep collaborations on professional level and notes that most of the times it works because producers can tell she’s just here to work and we work period.

Surprisingly, the 29-year old admitted that, she used to hate her body, as crazy as it seems, but now she can’t understand the changes on her body.

The revelations caused a commotion on social media as some tended to side with her and others blamed it on producers.

It’s so disappointing that so many women have to be responsible for the actions of men’’ one person commented.

Another person commented, the fact that she has to do this is sad. We as men have created this problem and need to fix it’’.

Tems joins the league of several female musicians and actresses like Jennifer Lopez who have managed to voice out the concerns about the frequently toxic environment in the male dominated entertainment industry.
