A predictable fact about Taylor Swift (and all others who are at her level of fame): For as many people that love her, there's gonna be just as many who simply don't get her. And can be pretty rude about it, too.
The latest celeb to bash Taylor--unprovoked--is kind of out of left field. Black Crowes frontman and former Mr. Kate Hudson, Chris Robinson, is unabashedly honest about his dislike for Swift's music. "I find it embarrassing that adults are like, 'Taylor Swift is very talented,'" he said. "She's not. She might be cute, but she's horrible."
All I can say is--sheesh. Who peed in Chris's cornflakes that morning? Now, instead of spotlighting a legitimate discussion about his own art (personally, I like his music), he's got to contend with being the bitchy dude who dissed poor Taylor Swift out of nowhere. Didn't everyone take a lesson from Kanye West?
Oddly enough, Robinson added this opinion: "Singing isn't always about being on key; it's about emotionality [sic]." Hmmm. Isn't that what everyone who defends Taylor Swift says about her? That it's her genuine and emotional delivery that counts, not necessarily her technical skill?
Have a look at it here, then be sure to tell me if you think she's horrible or not. Personally, speaking as an adult, I do think she's talented.
As always, be sure to:
- Taylor Swift
- Kate Hudson
