Courtney Love Says Taylor Swift Is ‘Not Important’ and ‘Not Interesting as an Artist’ – Variety

By Ellise Shafer
Don’t call Courtney Love a Swiftie.
In an interview with the Evening Standard, the Hole frontwoman made her thoughts known about the pop singer, saying: “Taylor is not important. She might be a safe space for girls, and she’s probably the Madonna of now, but she’s not interesting as an artist.”
Love further elaborated that she isn’t a fan of Madonna, either. “I don’t like her and she doesn’t like me,” she said. “I loved ‘Desperately Seeking Susan,’ but for the city of New York as much as her.”
Love also sounded off on several other popular women in music, including Lana Del Rey, who just made headlines for her memorable Coachella set.

“I haven’t liked Lana since she covered a John Denver song, and I think she should really take seven years off,” Love said. “Up until ‘Take Me Home Country Roads’ I thought she was great. When I was recording my new album, I had to stop listening to her as she was influencing me too much.”

As for Beyoncé, Love commended “Cowboy Carter” for its significance, but said she still didn’t “like it much.”
“I like the idea of Beyoncé 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,” she said. “As a concept, I love it. I just don’t like her music.”
So, who does Love like? According to the Standard, Patti Smith, Nina Simone, PJ Harvey, Julie London and Joni Mitchell.
When it comes to more current artists, Love said: “It’s great that there are so many successful women in the music industry, but lots of them are becoming a cliché. Now, every successful woman is cloned, so there is just too much music. They’re all the same.”
Representatives for Swift did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.
