Lead singer of Blur and later of Gorillaz, Damon Albarn, has been criticised by Taylor Swift after he said that she doesn’t write her own music.

Talking to the LA Times, Albarn replied to the interviewer calling Swift “an excellent songwriter” by stating “she doesn’t write her own songs”, BBC reports.

Swift responded on Twitter: “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.”

Albarn said in the interview that he prefers Billie Eilish, who he called a “really interesting songwriter”.

“I’m more attracted to that than to Taylor Swift. It’s just darker – less endlessly upbeat. Way more minor and odd. I think she’s exceptional.”
