Here’s the backstory: Krewella started as a DJ trio: Sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, and Kristopher Trindl, who was dating Jahan at the time they formed. The sisters booted Trindl from the band this year, and he’s suing them for $5 million. They say he has a drug and booze problem; he says they claimed he was too much of a bummer after going to rehab. At the time, Deadmau5 put them on blast for booting the “one talented member” of the band. Got it? Great.
Jahan just did an op-ed in Billboard wherein she said, “I am asking for everyone to think about girls who are looking at this public reaction who might now be discouraged to pursue an authentic place in a male-dominated industry. … There is still a stigma associated with being a woman: that I am a conspiring and manipulative free-loader who doesn’t work as hard or is as talented as a man- and that I use sex to advance my career. The pressure not to confirm stereotypes can affect a women’s performance and her ability to succeed.
