One music star took aim at Taylor Swift for this shocking reason

Apr 19, 2024

Taylor Swift is the “it girl” of the moment, as Swift sets records with her “eras” tour.

 

But not everyone is a fan.

And one music star took aim at Taylor Swift for this shocking reason.

Courtney Love disses Swift

Americans first got to know Courtney Love as the grieving lover of Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain.

Cobain shocked the music industry with his 1994 suicide, which hit a generation of fans like a gut punch as Cobain and Nirvana blazed the trail that led to the Seattle grunge scene taking over the music industry in the early 1990s.

Love then became a star in her own right as the lead singer for the band Hole, which sold over 3 million records and earned four Grammy nominations.

In an interview with the British publication The Standard, Love made it clear she wasn’t a fan of Taylor Swift, claiming her music was nothing but homogenized commercial pop that didn’t push any limits.

“Taylor is not important,” Love claimed. “She might be a safe space for girls, and she’s probably the Madonna of now, but she’s not interesting as an artist.”

These are fighting words for Swift’s legions of fans known as “Swifties,” who swarm anyone online who utters even so much as a crossword about their hero.

Love also takes aim at other female artists

In the interview, Love also made it clear she has a personal issue with Madonna, saying the two don’t like each other and taking a dig at Madonna’s 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan, which Love claimed was only interesting because of how it featured the city of New York as a character.

“I don’t like her and she doesn’t like me,” Love declared. “I loved Desperately Seeking Susan, but for the city of New York as much as her.”

Love also said she wasn’t a fan of singer Lana Del Ray – an artist who’s been nominated for 115 different awards and taken home 46.

The Hole frontwoman claimed Del Ray would be better off going into hiding for years so people can forget she doesn’t have an interesting career or music catalog.

“I haven’t liked Lana since she covered a John Denver song, and I think she should really take seven years off,” Love declared.

Love says she’s not out to make friends 

Love’s shots at other female artists didn’t come out of the blue.

She told The Standard that picking fights is in her nature, and she’s never going to stop standing up for what she believes in.

“People used to say that I was so difficult,” Love began. “They said I was disagreeable. Yes, I am completely disagreeable and I’m never going to apologise for that. I always wanted to be known as a b!@#$.”

Love said Cobain’s death hit her very hard, as she became the focal point of outrage mobs who blamed her for the singer’s death.

“Being liked was never my thing. Kurt [Cobain] wanted to be liked but not me. He was able to hide behind me, but then I got hated. Then Kurt died, and the hatred towards me reached a completely new level. I did not plan for that,” Love added.
