Everyone has their own thoughts about adorable Taylor Swift, four-time Grammy winner and current VMA nominee. For example, in the opinion of Black Crowes‘ front man and Kate Hudson’s ex Chris Robinson, Taylor Swift is everything that’s terrible about modern music.
Snarls Robinson, “I find it embarrassing that adults are like, ‘Taylor Swift is very talented.’ She’s not. She might be cute, but she’s horrible.” Ouch! How weird is it that Robinson would even bother to go after Taylor in the first place? It’s not like most 14-year-old girls are on iTunes agonizing over whether to buy Swift’s new single “Mine” or the Black Crowes’ “Croweology”. He’s not going to pull any fans to his side this way.
Robinson’s main issue with Swift and other (popular) artists are that “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).” It’s about emotionality, people. O, but not the emotions of a love-struck 20-year-old girl, of course; just the emotionality of middle-aged hippies with tie-dyed tops and Jesus hair. We respect Robinson’s right to jam out without the aid of GarageBand or a professional beard wrangler, but please. Let the children be.
