In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Keith Richards cast doubt on the success and resilience of pop singer, Taylor Swift. Richards said in the publication that he “wishes her well while it lasts.”
When speaking with the reporters from the WSJ, Richards admitted he had been around for a long time, and it’s not “fair” for him to make fun of the new generation of entertainers.
The Rolling Stones’ guitarist said, “I’ve always been an opinionated b*stard anyway.” During a chat with GQ Magazine back in September of 2015, the 72-year-old said Swift was merely the “flavor of the month.”
Despite the fact that Keith loves to shade the singer, Taylor is a great fan of the Stones. She even sang along with them in Chicago during their performance of the track, “As Tears Go By,” in 2013.
Furthermore, the 28-year-old songstress – who recently won a sexual assault case against a DJ who groped her – raved about the British rock band during an interview following their concert together.
Swift said it’s not every day a person gets to play with the legendary rock band. Swift said, “that’s not something that I thought would happen in my life.”
Taylor claimed the Stones have a way of performing music which has their fans completely hooked. It doesn’t matter how many years go by; people keep coming back to see them.
The “Look What You Made Me Do” singer praised their ability to try their hardest every single performance and stated the band influenced her career.
And while Taylor had words of respect for the Stones, the guitar player didn’t have a lot of nice things to say back. However, as Keith said, he’s always been “opinionated;” that’s just who he is. Celebrity Insider reported earlier today that Richards formerly trashed Mick Jagger in his 2010 memoir, Life.
