Ruby Rose defends her DJ career and challenges haters to “know their facts”
If you follow the dance music, you’ve probably heard the name Ruby Rose in the news quite often lately. Appearing first on Orange Is The New Black, the androgynous star has continued her wave in the spotlight, switching gears to pursue her DJing career. Recently signed to Connected and already booked for an international tour, her swift rise up the ladder has naturally been met with naysayers claiming her fame is unjustified, and that she’s just another celebrity who decided she wants to DJ.
Combating these claims in the most public way possible, Rose gave both fans and haters a brief history of her career through a post on her Facebook page. “Odds are, if you have JUST started noticing a chick DJ get any form of recognition it’s not their first day on the job,” says the actress on behalf of all female artists who’ve received similar critique in the past. She notes that her path to success in the industry began well before her acting fame in 2009 when she first started playing festival circuits with the likes of Skrillex, Erick Morillo, and Calvin Harris. “Everything I do is a result of hard work and I’m proud of it.. Even if I had some less than desirable music choices and on stage antics in 2009,” she quips.
