Damon Albarn, of the bands Blur and Gorillaz, sparked controversy after saying in an interview that Taylor Swift “doesn’t write her own songs.” Swift, who has been credited as a songwriter on all of her studio albums, responded to Albarn on Twitter saying, “I write ALL of my own songs. Your hot take is completely false and SO damaging.”
Albarn claimed Swift “doesn’t write her own songs” after the Los Angeles Times interviewer noted Swift was a talented songwriter. When the interviewer mentioned Swift also co-writes, Albarn responded, “That doesn’t count. I know what co-writing is.”
Damon Albarn has apologized to Taylor Swift after she reacted to his Los Angeles Times interview, in which he claimed she “doesn’t write her own songs.”

Rebecca I just can’t stand old men bashing young female artists. Im not into TS genre of music, but she’s a respected artist that brings happiness to others. I did have Gorrilaz music on my playlist from years ago, that now has just been deleted.
Rascally MERF You’re doing no better if you describe Damon Albarn as a singer. He’s a musician, songwriter, composer, artist, collaborator as well as a singer. His output has impacted pop culture in a way that Ms Swift, no matter how talented, will only ever fit into
