Taylor Swift is Horrible, Says Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson
Taylor Swift can claim the title of being “cute,” but not that of “talented” singer or songwriter, according to Black Crowes vocalist Chris Robinson in an interview with magazine Nylon Guys.
In the interview, the 43-year-old Robinson, who, aside from fronting the Black Crowes, is also known as the ex-husband of Hollywood actress Kate Hudson, said that Swift, who has been collecting awards left and right, is not as good as she is touted to be. “I find it embarrassing that adults are like, ‘Taylor Swift is very talented.’ She’s not. She might be cute, but she’s horrible,” said Robinson, who went on to attack studio packaged artists.
“They make records with producers who play a chord into the computer and it all comes out the same…When you have computers doing it all for you…there’s no individuality,” he said. Robinson is not the first veteran artist to verbally attack Swift. At last year’s VMAs, Kanye West infamously took to the stage, grabbed the microphone from a shocked Swift, who was then making her thank you speech for winning the “Best Female Video” for “You Belong with Me,” and dissed the 20-year-old singer by saying that Beyonce actually had a better video for “Single Ladies.”
