Chris Robinson, ‘Taylor Swift Is Horrible’

swift-met-2_0_0


Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson attacked Taylor Swift. He told Nylon Guys: ‘I find it embarrassing that adults are like, ‘Taylor Swift is very talented.’ She’s not. She might be cute, but she’s horrible. 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.’

    not to be rude , but demi and miley

    but thats just my opinion.

    Selena is an amazing actress
    Miley is an amazing singer

    yes but you forgot to mention that selena is really great in acting.

  • Demi lovato is fake

    That should be Demi he talked about and not Taylor. Taylor wrote her own songs and sticks to the music genre she loves which is pop country. When Demi started her career, she was punk rock. But now look at her music? pure crap. She wants to follow her fellow disney starts Miley and Selena. Demi is such a wannabe when she see that her album doesn’t sell as much as Miley/Selena/Taylor, she starts to switch her genre to be like them. Look at how she dresses now. Sundress like Taylor? Cute gowns like Selena? High stripper shoes like Miley? If that doesn’t screams wannabe then I don’t know what to call her anymore. Fake attitude, fake style, fake relationship with joe.

    Demi Lovato = FAILS.

    The fact most Taylor fans on here will respond with “Who??” shows their ignorance towards music.
    The Black Crows are brilliant, and this guy has more right as a musician to give his opinion on music acts that people like Miley Cyrus (who?).
    Maybe you should give them a listen and discover what singers sounds like WITHOUT autotune.

    well miley/selena/demi dont just write songs about boys and breakups unlike taylor. all her songs are pretty much the same tempo and the same concept -__- at least demi/miley/selena write about different things with different beats. and demi can actually sing. selena is getting there and miley needs to just sit down and sing instead of running around and tiring out her voice.

    Dude,I agree.
    But who knows maybe she was like this before and when she got into Disney they created that rock-ish image of her and when they saw that didn’t sell well they wanted to change her again.I don’t think she had a choice she’s just doing what she’s told (which sucks big time) so i would say:

    Demi Lovato’s Management team = FAIL

    lol no. demi can sing her ass off, and writes her songs. selena can act amazingly. and miley is also a pretty good singer, and a good performer. and she also writes some songs.

    taylor swift cant sing, but that doesnt mean she is not talented. the girl is a better song writer than alot of people. so yes, she has talent in song writing. but not in singing.

    Even though Taylor is not the best singer out there, she can actually write her own songs, which is pretty rare these days. That’s what makes her special. But truly, there are worse singers out there. I mean c’mon, we all know Selena’s singing is pretty bad, and she only hits higher noted on her Cds, never live. Also, Chris is entitled to his own opinion, but it might be influenced by the fatc that he sells less albums?

  • xoxolovebug

    I’m a huge T.Swift fan, and I can admit that she doesn’t have the best voice, but she’s not HORRIBLE. That was kind of rude. I love the emotion she puts into her songs, so what’s this lack of “emotionality” that he’s talking about? (Is emotionality even a word? xD)

    This is why I would rather listen to big band music from the 30s and 40s, or the classics, like the Beatles and Stevie Wonder. There’s either no autotune or at least you can’t hear it, unlike all the music that’s on the radio now. coughJUSTINBIEBERcough -_-

    Are some of you seriously saying Taylor is a good writer? :/

    Everything she writes is basically the same thing. She’s hardly deep in any sense of the word. And as for emotion… Look at any 12 year old’s diary and you’ll find the same shit.

    She writes about everything from heartbreak to falling in love to her own mom. So she doesnt write about the same thing. Try writing a song thats as good as hers. Her songs are good because if they werent good she wouldnt have won album of the year top new female vocalist and the Crystal Milestone Award at the CMAS. She even has nominations at the WORLD MUSIC AWARDS. Look at her achievments and then start judging her.

    I’m actually very confused right now. People don’t like Taylor because they say she cant sing well live. But he said in that article it isn’t about how well you can sing, but the emotion behind the song. That exact;y describes Taylor. And I don’t care how fucking great he is. He isn’t God of Music. He doesn’t get to decide what’s good or whats bad. I’m not saying whether I’m a fan of Taylor or not, but this entire thing makes no sense what so ever.

    As for her achievements, Taylor Swift is not worth that much acclaim.

    YOU may not feel any emotion when you hear her sing, but obviously many teen girls know what’s she’s been through, and for that reason, love her music. I believe that Taylor Swift puts a heck a lot of emotion into her songs, also from personal experiences, as you mentioned with Demi.

    Tf? He never said anything in that quote about Taylor singing badly. Idk why ppl are bringing that up. It’s irrelevant to what he’s saying. It’s not about her being horrible because her singing isn’t the best, it’s about her not having emotion, using instruments, and having a stylist(?????). Taylor plays guitar really well, puts alot of emotion into her songs, and who the hell cares if she has a stylist. And she sings about what she knows, that’s why her songs are the same. I like Demi, and I think she’s a powerful, talented singer, but in everything else besides singing, Taylor crushes her. That’s the truth.

    i could not agree more with this. taylor cant sing live at all and theres no denying that. also all her songs are about the same thing and they all sound the same. also i dont feel any emotions when she sings wither. selena gomez cant sing either and doesent even write her songs. miley can sound either good or bad live but she isnt very consistent. honestly the only one who can really sing is demi. she could sing her ass of and run circles around the other three. she also wries her own songs and plays instruments like drums guitar and piano. her msuic also is very emotional and from personal experiences. when you hear her sings songs that are like about a heartbreak or about her dad you can really see the pain.i saw her sing daughters by joh mayer and you could see the pain and she was crying becuase of her problems with her dad. she is the most talented teen singer there is around today. shes definetly way better then miley selena and taylor. also just beacuse taylor wrote all the songs for her album doesent make her beterr then like demi or miley who write songs also. just because they co write doesent mean theyre not just as talented as taylor at writing(which i dont think she is good at all)because every song on her album was written by her. they write a lot of songs also but sometimes theyre just not on the album. they wrtie just as much as she does.

    I know Taylor Swift wasn’t the best live singer before, but she’s getting better as she grows up. Recently, I was at the Fearless tour’s concert, and she sounded quite good! Blame it on the hysteria of a concert if you want, but I’ve always supported her purity in this corrupted world of media, and she sounded great to me. And as for Chris Robinson? I don’t know if you’re into computers, but maybe a stylist wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

    “Singing isn’t always about being on key; it’s about emotionality.”

    That makes me think of Demi. I feel NOTHING when I listen to her songs, no matter how on key she is.

    I’m not a Taylor fan, but the girl DOES feel her songs, cause she wrote them. She’s off key, but she’s got the emotion…it’s the opposite of what this guy said haha

  • HBIC

    As for Carrie Underwood, she would fall under the “on key but fake emotionality” category too.

    Demi lovato is fake said:

    That should be Demi he talked about and not Taylor. Taylor wrote her own songs and sticks to the music genre she loves which is pop country. When Demi started her career, she was punk rock. But now look at her music? pure crap. She wants to follow her fellow disney starts Miley and Selena. Demi is such a wannabe when she see that her album doesn’t sell as much as Miley/Selena/Taylor, she starts to switch her genre to be like them. Look at how she dresses now. Sundress like Taylor? Cute gowns like Selena? High stripper shoes like Miley? If that doesn’t screams wannabe then I don’t know what to call her anymore. Fake attitude, fake style, fake relationship with joe.

    Demi Lovato = FAILS.

    Actually, I was making light of the absurdness of the whole thing. I’m a firm believer that singers should not act and actors should not sing (unless they’re really damn talented). Taylor shouldn’t have been given an acting career. Miley and Demi should stick to one or the other, and Selena should just act.

    Clearly people here do not understand the concept of irony.

    Miley has a co-writers, Demi has co-writers. Selena has co-writers.

    Taylor wrote all the song by herself on her new album and in Fearless album She wrote 7 songs by herself and the album has 13 songs.

    How the hell is Demi fat? She has a couple of curves, sure, but who doesn’t? She’s talented, beautiful, and seems very nice, unlike Taylow Swift.

    But seriosly, look at Beyonce, for example. She’s a very curvy woman, and you don’t see people calling her fat.

    I think that Taylor, though she’s not the most talented country singer in the bunch (Carrie & Miranda ftw), does have talent. And unlike the Disney crowd, she worked to get a recording contract, instead of getting one handed to her a la Miley, Selena, and Demi, who were all actresses first.

    The irony in this though, is that Taylor has gotten an acting career, even though she can’t act at all….

    FINALLY, someone who acknowledges the fact that Taylor Swift isn’t that talented as everyone thinks she is! I admire you Chris for speaking the truth. — No, he’s not jealous, so Swift fans need to shut up. — No, she can’t sing, live or in the studio. Doesn’t matter, all her songs are the same and she doesn’t even have a good voice to back them up. How on earth did she get signed to a record label in the first place?! America needs to wake up & see that she doesn’t have talent. There are millions of girls out there with STUNNING voices who haven’t been discovered.

    I totally disagree with this guy. Sure there are better singers out there than Taylor Swift, but it didn’t give him the right to call her horrible. I’ll admit she’s not extraordinary, but she is a good singer. Also, seeing the people in Hollywood today, we need singers who are talented and a good role model. I mean look at say, Miley Cyrus, she is a pretty good singer but has become a really bad role model. I’m sorry to people who disagree but, it’s my opinion.

    Taylor swift sings better live than most “singers” at the moment

  • Vic

    Well said, Chris. I’ve been saying that for quite some time now, but nobody was listening. This girl can’t sing. And when I say she can’t sing, I mean that she sounds way too generic and equally boring–and that is a fact. She totally lacks that individuality needed to sell records on real singing ability. If you saw her when she sang LIVE next to Stevie Nicks, then you’d know what I mean. She sells records because other female teens relate to her lyrics–and because she is so cute. But make no mistake; there is no emotion to her songs. Writing her own songs doesn’t make her talented, folks. Her writing is pedestrian at best, by the way.

    At least Britney Spears had a better execution in her songs. They were not only catchy but sexy. They totally conveyed emotion, despite her singing abilities (or lack thereof). I totally grooved to her music, though I never did so in public.

    Carry Underwood is much more sophisticated than Taylor Swift in every sense of the word. I also love Kellie Pickler and Lila McCann. Have you ever listened to Lila’s “Go Easy on Me” song? Beautiful!

    Carry Underwood’s music, for instance, is not only beautiful, but it is also vastly seducing–very well structured lyrically, vocally and musically. She invokes emotion in every song that she interprets. Now, that’s what I call talent!

    Any person can write their own material. Quality, however, can only be achieved by a few. Taylor Swift conveys the opposite of quality–inferiority. She isn’t very good quite frankly. She is given way too much credit. Why is she famous then, you ask? Deep down you know answer.

    At any rate, when Kanye West disrespected her at the VMA’s, I knew that this would help her sell more records, and top the charts longer, out of sympathy. Everyone just seemed to show their support with their wallets and positive feedback, after that unfortunate incident took place. But the way Kanye did it is not the way to go about it either.

    I only wish that someone more respected in the music industry would have come out and said what Chris Robinson so eloquently stated in that magazine interview. This guy is viewed as a stoner and a has-been nowadays, so there may be little stock in what he says to some people, though he clearly speaks words of truth. But celebrities are afraid of criticizing a cute girl for fear of being called “insensitive,” or career reprisal.

    Than I guess almost all singers are horrible. Taylor does not have the best voice, but all the other stuff is crap. Because almost all musicians have the computer doing the chords/instruments for them. Not just Taylor. And if he ever saw her dateline special, he would know that she tweaks everything herself when it comes to the instruments. Plus she writes her own music.

    Taylor Swift? Horrible? uhh I think not. Who even is this Chris Robinson dude? I’ve literally never heard of him before. Maybe he just envies her for the simple fact that shes 10 times more popular than him. And if Mr Robinson did not notice 99.99999% of singers and bands edit their voices and have stylists. This Chris dude is just still living a different era I guess. So if anything he shouldve addressed the musicians of today and not attack Taylor. And Taylors really talented. She writes her own music plays guitar and piano very well and is the best role model teens and tweens everywhere can have. So Mr Robinson next time you want your fame to rise by insulting someone do not pick someone who deserves everything she has.

    Agreed, maybe Taylor is a bad example here, like..why choose her out of everyone?

    I do agree she’s not the best live, BUT she has a lot of talent as a musician…just not singer. There’s a difference.

    Also, I don’t think he was so much slating her lack of singing ability (as he goes on to say it’s not about being on key/tune/whatever) but the fact that she does have her voice changed a lot on her albums, which she does.

    Anyway, perhaps horrible was rather strong but, he has his opinion. Chris is someone to be really respected in music, I think, so you gotta let him think what he likes.
