Wow, it seems like the women of music’s past are having some major issues with today’s stars. Yesterday, Bette Midler blasted Ariana Grande for wh***ing herself out and now Joni Mitchell has slammed Taylor Swift!
The legendary folk singer was talking about the movie, Girls Like Us, in which Taylor was rumoured to be playing her and said why she pulled the plug on the film: “I squelched that. I said to the producer, ‘All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones.’”
While we find it hard enough to understand Joni not appreciating Taylor’s fine cheekbones, it seem obvious that she also felt the Blank Space singer was unable to pull of her talent in the movie.
In fact, in discussing her reason to "squelch" the movie, was there any need to mention Taylor at all? Seems needlessly cruel really.
Taylor wasn’t the only issue that Joni had with the movie however, also saying: “It’s just a lot of gossip, you don’t have the great scenes.”
We feel like the past legends of music may need to start being a bit nicer to the younger crowd, it’s getting out of hand – where is the solidarity ladies?!
