It all kicked off when the Los Angeles Times shared an interview with Albarn on Twitter.

They quoted him calling Billie Eilish an, 'exceptional,' artist and accusing Taylor Swift of not writing her own songs:

'Billie Eilish? "I think she’s exceptional." Taylor Swift? "She doesn’t write her own songs."'

In the actual interview, Albarn implied modern musicians rely heavily on sound and attitude.

When the interviewer pointed out that Taylor Swift is, 'an excellent songwriter,' the Blur artist replied, 'She doesn’t write her own songs.'

The interviewer replied, 'Of course she does. Co-writes some of them.'

To this, he said, 'That doesn’t count. I know what co-writing is. Co-writing is very different to writing.'

'I’m not hating on anybody, I’m just saying there’s a big difference between a songwriter and a songwriter who co-writes.'

'Doesn’t mean that the outcome can’t be really great.'

Taylor reacts

Taylor was clearly hurt by his words, and she made sure he knew it.

The Blank Space singer tweeted, '@DamonAlbarn I was such a big fan of yours until I saw this.'

'I write ALL of my own songs. Your hot take is completely false and SO damaging.'

She added, 'You don’t have to like my songs but it’s really fu**ed up to try and discredit my writing. WOW.'

In a follow-up tweet, she wrote, 'PS I wrote this tweet all by myself in case you were wondering.'

Damon replied, 'I totally agree with you.'

'i had a conversation about songwriting and sadly it was reduced to clickbait.' He continued, 'I apologise unreservedly and unconditionally.'

'The last thing I would want to do is discredit your songwriting. I hope you understand. - Damon'
