Tom Jones speaks up about Harassment in music industry

London: Singer Tom Jones has said that it is not only the hollywood which is reeling under sexual abuse post Harvey Weinstein controversy but music industry is  also under the clutches of sexual harassment. The 77-year-old singer said, both men and women have been subjected to abuse on the music scene too.

“Things have always happened in the music industry as well. There’s been people complaining about publicists and different things they’ve been expected to do to get a record contract, just like a film contract.

“There were a few things like that. But you avoid it. You just walk out… But what’s tried on women is tried on men as well,” Jones said in an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live.
The “Sex Bomb” also alluded to being sexually abused during his career.”It wasn’t bad, just somebody tried to pull… It was a question and I said, ‘No thank you.’ You think, ‘Well, I’ve got to get away from this person and it can’t be like this.’

“You should know that yourself, you don’t do things just because you think, ‘I should do this.’ Your own mind will tell you that. Not just in show business, but in any thing you’re in,” he said.
