Zara Larsson has clapped back on Twitter after her new single 'Ruin My Life' was criticised for focusing on a destructive relationship.
'Ruin My Life' is the first single to be released from Zara's upcoming second album and is about wanting to go back to an unhealthy relationship.
But a Twitter user questioned why Zara had chosen to base a song on this theme given "today's climate."
"I still wonder why you made a song about mindfully choosing to be in a relationship with someone who's going to 'ruin your life', when today's climate calls for women to have more positive control over negative situations like that," @russyrockets wrote.
Now, Zara has hit back saying she has a right to talk about the time without it making her a "bad feminist."
Love isnt easy and finding your way out of a destructive relationship is very hard. RML is about a time in my life where I was very heartbroken and confused. As an artist (and a person) I feel like I have the right to talk about that too without being a bad feminist. https://t.co/nI2imSHCZH— Zara Larsson (@zaralarsson) October 30, 2018

Many fans have come out and supported Zara for being honest about her own struggles.
'Ruin My Life' entered The Official Vodafone Big Top 40 at Number 10 on last Sunday's show.
The Swedish singer is currently putting the finishing touches to her new album, expected out in 2019.
