Our pay was f***ed up, so we sent agent Haim
HAIM fired their agent after learning they were paid ten times less than a male artist to play at the same festival.
And the band — sisters Danielle, Alana and Este Haim — are still bitter about it.
Alana fumed: ‘It’s f***ed up not even to be paid half the same amount. But a tenth? Insane.’
It’s not the first time they’ve encountered inequality. ‘A lot of people accept the fact an all-male band writes their own songs, but when they see an all-woman band, they’re like, “ Oh there must be a man behind it,”’ she said.
