Black Crowes' Chris Robinson on Taylor Swift: 'Horrible'
Country music sensation Taylor Swift has amassed millions of fans since releasing her debut album in 2006. But don't count Chris Robinson among them.
"I find it embarrassing that adults are like, 'Taylor Swift is very talented.' She's not. She might be cute, but she's horrible."
So what's Robinson's beef with Swift, who's so horrible that she's pretty much won every music award imaginable at the tender age of 20? Apparently, Robinson, 43, feels that Swift and other artists of her generation are mere products of marketing, polished to an inauthentic, sterile sheen by modern studio technology:
"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. Singing isn't always about being on key; it's about emotionality [sic]."
What do you think? Is Robinson talking to angels on this one, or is he jealous again? Let us know in the comments section.
