In the two tweets, she wrote: "hey, men - do me and yourselves a favour, and don't underestimate my skill

"yes, i'm a young lass, but i'm also making the best decisions for me each day. #stayeducated (sic)."

The Royals singer reportedly split from the manager who signed her to Universal Music at the age of 11 a few weeks ago.

Although no details about the decision to part ways have been revealed, with Scott's company Saiko Management declining to comment on the issue.
