The Gossip frontwoman told Clash that people make wrong assumptions about women in the music industry.
Ditto said: "I'm not angry. Rock 'n' roll music made by men is so much more over-the-top aggressive than when a women says 'you' and they're screaming it.
"It's like, 'Oh my God!' I'm like, 'Have you heard rock music made by men?'"
She added: "I always think that's really interesting. I think if you ever met me you'd be like, 'That person is not angry'."
Gossip release the Rick Rubin-produced Music For Men on June 22.
