Neither are walking away from this one with much credibility, let's just be honest. Rita's coming across as awfully big for her boots for someone so early in her career, but a response from Jade saying as much would have been a much better idea than criticising her sex-life. It is 2013 after all, I thought as a society we had wised up to the inherent sexism in trying to make women ashamed of their sexual behaviour (even if only in terms of women not being sexist to each other). Guess not though, from some of the responses in this thread - but I hope the ones pointing the finger chanting 'Whore! Whore!' are at least internally consistent enough not to pop up in another thread saying 'Urgh! Why do women get called sluts while men get congratulated for having sex?!'
I am not going to judge anyone for having sex with multiple partners but when you use sex to advance your career (which is what Jade is alleging) I think some criticism is warranted (for both the desperate singer and the sleazy record executive) as it is basically prostitution only instead being paid cash you get a record deal.
