I was trying to be a rapping, and our person we were all trying to be something. Drew was a young, powerful something who cares so much about this music. So when Def Jam called me was like Russell, Simmons wants to offer you the job as director of an R at Def Jam. I could not have scripted it better. That's woman, beautiful things about the music industry. There was a lot of mobility for women, but at the same time there was tremendous amount of sexual harassment. You didn't get a lot of sympathy for that. That was considered the price of admission. I didn't tell that many people about what happened with Russell. He just grabbed me. He just grabbed me and I'm saying No, I was reduced to nothing in that moment. Nothing about anything that makes me who I am mattered Master, Do you want to go to the police? She was like, No one's going to take me seriously. Who's gonna believe me? If white women I'll not believe. What do you think has happened? So black women in America. When we come forward with stories about sexual violence, I don't have a stitch of violence. I would never hurt him. You're worried as a black woman. Did you'll say something that will have consequences that you hadn't anticipated? He's the king of about black community, will hate my guts. I don't wanna let the culture down left the culture. It's a terrible burden to there to know that you might still be judged as somehow being a traitor. The New York Times probably even said there were other women that they will go on the record unless I go on the record. But I'm terrified of the backlash. We need to be able to make sure that a broader group of women are introduced into the public consciousness. This is so emblematic of what happens to women routinely. There's a loss for all of us. It really, really is. I've been alone for 22 years. I thought it was just me to go through the assault and then the coming forward. Everybody was taught things happened. You just didn't talk about it. And so I just always put on this front. Every woman's story deserves to be heard. I've been a victim for 22 years. I'm tired of being a victim.
