Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson calls Taylor Swift “horrible”

Is it that time of year already? Time an adult had a go at Taylor Swift that is.

It’s becoming a bit of a tradition, this time last year Kanye West was interrupting the country singer’s award acceptance speech, basically telling her that she shouldn’t have won.

We know that at 20-years-old Taylor isn’t exactly a child, but to be called “horrible” by a 46-year-old man can’t exactly be much fun for the girl.

Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson (he was married to Kate Hudson) told Nylon Guys magazine: “I find it embarrassing that adults are like, ‘Taylor Swift is very talented.’ She’s not,”

“She might be cute, but she’s horrible.”

“They have stylists who dress them, 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 went on.

“Singing isn’t always about being on key; it’s about emotionality.”

    He’s right, she’s fucking terrible. I don’t understand why it’s such a crime to say it, I mean damn, everybody’s acting like she’s John Lennon or something, “Oh, he’s wrong for that because she’s a sensitive little girl”. Sorry, but at 20 years old, she should be able to put up with criticism by now, especially being in the business she’s in. And so what he’s twice her age… would you rather his son said it out loud instead? Would that justify it? The only thing that was wrong about Kanye was the way he did it, but he wasn’t wrong about his opinion. Taylor Swift is fucking overrated, and it’s the morons who buy her fake “singer-songwriter” image that are responsible for it. It fucking pisses me off.

    Bingo! ALL these “kids” who are up and coming in the industry are bobble heads. SOME talent under there but all the production and studio musicians and studio / computer “aids” makes for a crap music industry. They look pretty and lack substance. Typical of our entire culture. And the young kids are eating it up because they don’t even KNOW what’s talent and what’s not. Another big bamboozle that the BIG companies pull on the unsuspecting consumer.

    The Black Crowes actually HAVE talent so he can speak the truth without repercussion.
