Charli XCX finds monogamy a mystery

Charli XCX doesn't believe in 'The One'.

The 22-year-old singer claims to have fallen in love 10 times already in her life and doesn't think there is just one special person out there for her or for anyone.

Discussing her songwriting, she said: "I talk about feelings, rather than specific narratives. 'Boom Clap' is more about the feeling of falling in love rather than any actual relationships.

"I've fallen in love maybe 10 times. I'm not a believer in one person, I believe in multiple people."

Charli has also admitted she has often been frustrated at the way she is treated by record company executives.

Speaking to Miss Vogue magazine, she said: "I was always drawn to artists who had that raw, wild edge. But as I got older and began making music myself, I did start to get angry at the way I was being treated.

"I was 16 and the men at record labels never took me seriously. It's never been much if a problem from producers and songwriters, it's always been the suits.

"Of course, there have been instances in the studio when I felt like I wasn't being taken seriously, because I'm young or because I'm a girl."

However, the 'Fancy' hitmaker also believes she has an "awesome power" that comes just from being female.

She said: "I think that when you're female you have this awesome power that men will never understand.

"Depending on your age and what sort of person you are, you can harness it in different ways. Sometimes I feel like such a kid, although I'm on this power woman thing right now."
