What did Albarn really say?
In a Los Angeles Occasions interview revealed on Sunday, Albarn accused Swift of not writing her personal songs, saying, “I do know what cowriting is. Cowriting could be very totally different to writing. I’m not hating on anyone, I’m simply saying there’s a giant distinction between a songwriter and a songwriter who cowrites.” Albarn then went on to match Swift to fellow musician Billie Eilish. “A extremely fascinating songwriter is Billie Eilish and her brother,” he remarked. “I’m extra drawn to that than to Taylor Swift. It’s simply darker—much less endlessly upbeat. Far more minor and odd. I feel she’s distinctive.”

That’s actually for Swift to determine, but it surely does appear type of bizarre to trash one of many preeminent feminine songwriters on the market after which attempt to blame it on clickbait (when, in actual fact, the Los Angeles Occasions seems to have printed a reasonably direct transcript of what was mentioned. Did they tweet out essentially the most salacious a part of the interview? Sure, however Albarn did nonetheless say it).
How is the president of Chile concerned?
Wonderful query. On Monday, Chilean president Gabriel Boric Font weighed in on the matter through Twitter, writing to Swift, “Right here in Chile you could have an enormous group of supporters who is aware of that you just write you personal songs from the center. Dont [sic] take severely guys that must insult or misinform get consideration. Hugs from the south Taylor.” Okay!
