Taylor Swift has responded forcefully to Damon Albarn that she composes her own songs and has accused him of lying and being harmful for saying that she is not the author of the songs she performs, a controversy in which the president of Chile, Gabriel Boric, has ended up intervening. to support the singer.
“I was a huge fan of yours until I saw this. I write all my own songs. Your hot opinion is completely false and harmful. You don’t have to like my songs, but it’s really fucked up that you’re trying to discredit my writing.” Swift wrote on Twitter.
The singer linked to the interview with “Los Angeles Times” where the founder of Gorillaz declared: “She doesn’t write her own songs,” when asked by the famous American singer.
Not leaving these words alone in response, Swift later adds by way of an ironic postscript: “I wrote this tweet myself, in case you were wondering.”
Different personalities have spoken out in favor of Taylor Swift in response to her tweet, including the recently elected Chilean president:
“Here in Chile you have a great group of followers who know that you write your own songs from the heart. Don’t take seriously guys who need to insult or lie to get attention. Hugs from the south Taylor,” writes Boric in English.
After the avalanche of criticism, the British composer has also apologized in that same thread of tweets: “I totally agree with you. I had a conversation about songwriting and sadly it boiled down to a flashy headline. I apologize unreservedly and unconditionally. The last thing I wanted to do is discredit your musical composition. I hope you understand. Damon”.
So far, the artist, who usually participates little in social networks, has not spoken again or responded to the apologies offered by Albarn.
