Robbie Williams hits back at Damon Albarn’s comments about Taylor Swift: “You just need to get rid of your ribs and your gluttony, Mary!”

Robbie Williams has hit out at Damon Albarn over his past inaccurate claim that Taylor Swift “doesn’t write her own songs.”

In January, the Blur and Gorillaz frontman said Swift’s “co-writing” approach to making music was at odds with his “traditional” view of songwriting during an interview with the LA Times.

The journalist then told Albarn that Swift was a “great songwriter”, to which he replied, “She doesn’t write her own songs”, to which Albarn replied that he thinks co-writing “doesn’t count”. .

Swift hit back, tweeting: “I write ALL my songs. Your comment is completely false and very hurtful. You don’t have to like my songs but it’s really f*cking trying to discredit mine writing. WOW.”

Albarn later apologized “unreservedly and unconditionally” to Swift, saying her words had been “reduced to clickbait”. He said, “The last thing I want to do is disrespect his singing. I hope you understand.”

During a new interview with NME, Williams – who has co-written five of his seven number ones to date – ruled that solo writing is more believable than a collaborative approach.

“I think when people say that, what they’re really doing is becoming self-centered,” the singer explained.

“That’s right! You know, it’s like, why don’t you ditch the middle man? Just take out a few ribs and binge, asshole! Because all you’re doing is going, ‘Hey , I’m fucking amazing!’ “

Williams continued, “There’s nothing good about it in any way, other than it’s kind of a dopamine hit for themselves, going, ‘You know, I’m a real one.’ You’re good. Fuck you.”

Regarding his own songwriting process, Williams told NME: “If you break down what I’m doing musically in a song, I do the same thing as Morrissey.

“I’m not saying in any way that he’s as good or better than Morrissey, I’m just saying: I do the same thing. He plays with a melody and adds a lyric.”

And he added: “The same thing happens with Elton: he does it the other way around. He only gets upset when he’s disrespected. [escribo] or that they are ‘its composers’, so I say to myself: ‘ God bless you‘”.

Many artists and fans were quick to defend Swift after Albarn’s comments came to light, including recent collaborators Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner. The first tweeted: “If you were there…great…go away. If not…maybe…shut the fuck up.”

Williams’ ex Liam Gallagher later chimed in, telling NME: “All the fucking gorilla albums are co-written, right? I get it, Noel says it too: ‘I’m more important than you because I write my some fucking songs..

Gallagher continued: “Well, [Albarn] You won’t say that in a hurry again, will you? Didn’t the Swifters kick him out of fucking town? I believe [Taylor] It’s fucking amazing, man. She writes her own songs and I’m sure she’s co-written with people.”

Robbie Williams will release his new album “XXV” on Columbia this Friday (September 9), on the occasion of his 25th anniversary.

Swift’s 10th studio album, ‘Midnights’, will be released on October 21. It will be the follow-up to their 2020 sister albums ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’.
