    Default Shirley Bassey critical of women doing 'men's jobs'



    She is one of our most successful female singers — but despite her global success, Dame Shirley Bassey believes that women should stop fighting for equality with men in the modern world.

    ‘Women in my industry aren’t empowered. Never have been, never will be,’ the 78-year-old warbler tells me.
    ‘Think about the modern man. The gene goes so deep, it goes right back to the caveman days: man must have control. Women should not change it, because we’ve tried and we’ve emasculated men. It’s dangerous to mess with science.’

    Bassey, who was born in Wales and now splits her time between London and Monaco, adds that women are not fit for jobs perceived as traditionally ‘male’.

    ‘There’s a reason why men are here. If I was flying with a female pilot, for instance, I’d be very worried. Women have periods and hormones, and that bothers me about women who want men’s jobs.
    'Like firefighters, police, soldiers . . . I don’t believe in women soldiers! Come on, women should be women. We should be feminine.
    ‘I’m not sad about it. We should accept it. It’s worked this way for a long time. Men went out and brought home the bacon. Women are now going a step too far, trying to be cleverer than men — or as clever.
    ‘Now, the man becomes the house-husband and it’s wrong. It shouldn’t be that way.’

    However, the twice-married Goldfinger singer admits the gender imbalance at home means she will never find love again.

    ‘I’ve been married twice and it has not worked out, but that’s my problem because I’m a successful woman and successful women cannot get a man who is at ease with himself.
    ‘The caveman doesn’t want a woman who threatens him.
    ‘I’m old enough to appreciate being on my own. I love the idea of not having anyone around to dictate what I do — like when I go to bed and when I eat.
    ‘I will never, ever get married again, no way.’

    So, other women should be less successful than men and submissive, but not her?

    It's weirder than that:

    I’ve been married twice and it has not worked out, but that’s my problem because I’m a successful woman and successful women cannot get a man who is at ease with himself.
    For the above statement to be true, every successful woman is either divorced or single, or is a happily married lesbian.

    She's old. Anyway, singers should only open their mouths to sing, not to preach.

    it's all horrible, but this takes the cake: "Women are now going a step too far, trying to be cleverer than men — or as clever."

    STFU, please.

    That's because you're a woman. Don't you worry your pretty little head about it.
