2:11 PM PT — Damon Albarn has just responded to Taylor Swift. He wants to squash any beef between the two of them. In a tweet, the Gorillaz singer says he agrees with T Swift, after all … He wrote, “I had a conversation about songwriting and sadly it was reduced to clickbait. I apologise unreservedly and unconditionally. The last thing I would want to do is discredit your songwriting. I hope you understand.”
Taylor Swift has a zero-tolerance policy for folks saying she doesn’t write her own music … and, as a result, the lead singer of Blur and Gorillaz just caught her wrath.
Taylor responded to a Los Angeles Times article quoting Damon Albarn‘s thoughts about current top-charting artists. He said, “‘Billie Eilish? “I think she’s exceptional” — but his take on Taylor? “She doesn’t write her own songs.”
Oh, no he didn’t. 😤
Taylor fired right back at Damon — “I was such a big fan of yours until I saw this. I write ALL of my own songs. Your hot take is completely false and SO damaging.”
@DamonAlbarn I was such a big fan of yours until I saw this. I write ALL of my own songs. Your hot take is completely false and SO damaging. You don’t have to like my songs but it’s really fucked up to try and discredit my writing. WOW. https://t.co/t6GyXBU2Jd
Taylor’s producer, Jack Antonoff, also jumped to her defense, pointing out Albarn’s never been in a studio to see Taylor do what she does. Jack told Damon, “if you were there … cool … go off. if not… maybe … shut the f**k up?”
T-Swift’s not hiding her disappointment and anger, she tagged Damon in her tweet, and added … “You don’t have to like my songs but it’s really f**ked up to try and discredit my writing. WOW.”
Ye and Scooter Braun, can take the back seat … Taylor’s got a new nemesis!!!
