Damon Albarn is, and always has been, a complete prick.
All of Blur are just terrible people
There’s been some reports about Coxon lately
Smug, entitled, white middle-class twats to a man.
Looking forward to Taylor coming on at Glastonbury singing ‘Parklife (Taylor’s Version)’.
…so she won’t be on the next Gorillaz album then?
Is this mansplaining? Or is this just someone being an absolute prick?
Also if I was Albarn I wouldn’t be inviting a songwriting comparison with anyone, let alone one of the best and most successful songwriters of the last 15 years. Assume he’s trying to get some attention for his latest project.
It’s not the first time is it?
Not even being funny here but if there’s one fanbase you don’t want to piss off it’s Swifties. They hold a grudge and will make his life a real chore in one way or another for a long time. They are extremely, fully committed to righting any wrongs against her.
so what project does he have coming out, eh
that’s a whole other issue really and it’s something that Swift should make more of an effort to nip in the bud. Some of those people are scary
He had an album out last year which I didn’t bother listening to.
What even is this train of thought:
A really interesting songwriter is Billie Eilish and her brother. 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.”
Also isn’t he literally praising the co-writing of Eilish there?
Lots of good apology bits in there. Not sure about the ‘reduced to clickbait’ bit stuff though.
Have no trouble believing that Albarn was misquoted for clickbait reasons but is also still a fusty old twat tbh.
She even wrote the entirety of her third album, Speak Now, solo in 2010 because people were making noises like this back then.
Edit: I’m adding to this comment rather than having a go
Would be surprised if in this modern age there isn’t audio and possibly video of the unedited quote
