Slams Record Label: ‘REALLY WISH’ They Prioritized Mental Health for Artists

She got candid about the industry’s negative effects.

The rapper tweeted out that record labels should provide their artists with therapists and other mental health options.

“I REALLY WISH record labels would all agree to make it mandatory to hire at least ONE psychologist per label," Iggy said.




Almost EVERY artist in recent times has expressed struggling with the level of hate & pressure. Sports teams do it for their athletes, why not music labels?

The star continued with her well-thought-out rant. “Trust me, I lived it,” she explained while revealing that artists do not want to show weakness to the labels.

“A weekly mental health check-in being normalized would take away the fear factor of having to approach often older people in power positions for help which can feel like exposing a weakness.”

The 30-year-old called out Rob Stringer, the head of Sony Music Group, claiming that he is one of the people who “isn’t doing anything.”
