Courtney Love criticizes Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Madonna and more


Swifties are working overtime after Courtney Love had some harsh words for Taylor Swift.

The rock artist made controversial comments about the “Karma” superstar in a recent interview with The Standard, saying Swift is “not important.” Love added that the “Eras Tour” star was “safe space for girls” and called her this generation’s Madonna.

Love went on to say that Swift is “not interesting as an artist.” Ironically, Love’s interview was centered on promoting her new series about empowering women in music.

And the “Violet” singer didn’t hold back on expressing her displeasure with Madonna, either. “I don’t like her and she doesn’t like me,” she added. While she also mentioned her love for the 1985 film “Desperately Seeking Susan,” which starred Madonna, Love says it was “for the city of New York as much as her.”

The “Hole” artist didn’t stop there. She also offered her opinion about Lana Del Rey: “I haven’t liked Lana since she covered a John Denver song, and I think she should really take seven years off. Up until ‘Take Me Home Country Roads’ I thought she was great,” she told the outlet. “When I was recording my new album, I had to stop listening to her as she was influencing me too much.”

Though Love expressed respect for Beyoncé, she said she’s not a fan of her music.

“I mean, I like the idea of doing a country record because it’s about Black women going into spaces where previously only white women have been allowed, not that I like it much,” Love continued. “As a concept, I love it. I just don’t like her music.”

The conversation about other women in the music industry was provoked by the launching of her eight-part series “Courtney Love’s Women” on Monday.

Love says she started the series to “redeem some of the women who have been treated so badly by the record industry.”

“Courtney Love’s Women” is on BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Sounds.
