Charli XCX has responded to the criticism she’s received over the cover artwork for her new album ‘Brat’.The pop artist is due to release her 15-track sixth studio record this summer, having already previewed the project with the club-ready single ‘Von Dutch’.During a new interview with Vogue Singapore, Charli addressed the reaction to the LP’s minimal lime green cover, which displays the word “brat” in a low-res black font.

The artwork does not feature an image of the singer.“They were like, ‘Why isn’t she going to be on the cover? She needs to be on the cover’,” Charli explained. “Why should anyone have that level of ownership over female artists?”She continued: “I wanted to go with an offensive, off-trend shade of green to trigger the idea of something being wrong.

I’d like for us to question our expectations of pop culture –why are some things considered good and acceptable, and some things deemed bad?“I’m interested in the narratives behind that and I want to provoke people.

I’m not doing things to be nice.”A post shared by Charli (@charli_xcx)In a post on X/Twitter on March 14, Charli replied to a fan who said “art directors must be on strike”.
