I wanted the album to be called “Sheezus” before I had a song with that title. The word inspired the song, and “divas” rhymes with “Sheezus.” I was really working backwards. Then I had to figure out a message. It starts off with me being quite scared about coming back. I’m really a sensitive person, and I take that on. I don’t like being compared to other people because I’m quite aware that there are people who are far more talented and have better singing voices than me. I don’t like being put in the same category as people because we have the same genitals and boobs. Nobody is going to write “Lily Allen vs. Ed Sheeran.” It just doesn’t happen…[I get compared to Katy Perry] because she’s a girl and I’m a girl. That’s it! I think in terms of humanity and evolution. It feels like the reason we play women against each other is because it’s the last bit of power that men have. They’re like, “Let’s make them feel shit about each other.” [“Sheezus”] is completely the opposite of that, though. I’m saying that I want all of them to be Sheezus, and I want to be Sheezus too.
