Taylor Swift slams Blur frontman’s claim that she doesn’t write her own songs as false and ‘so damaging’

Damon Albarn, songwriter and frontman for the band Blur, told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published Sunday that much of modern music is popular because of the “sound and the attitude” behind it rather than the songs being “good.”

When the interviewer mentioned Swift as an example of an “excellent songwriter,” Albarn responded that “she doesn’t write her own songs.”

“I know what co-writing is,” Albarn said. “Co-writing is very different to writing a song. He said I am not hating on anybody, I’m just saying there’s a big difference between a songwriter and a songwriter who co-writes.”

The pop star responded to comments made about her in a Los Angeles Times interview with Blur’s Damon Albarn.

Taylor Swift said , 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.
