Taylor Swift Brands Olly Murs ‘Sexist’ For Telling Her To Move On From Harry Styles

Erm, Tay Tay? We think that Olly made those comments because Harry is his friend, not because you’re a woman.

Well, here’s a slice of celeb beef that we didn’t see coming.

Taylor Swift has accused Olly Murs of being sexist after he told her to move on and stop writing songs about his pal Harry Styles.


Talking on 2DAYFM, the same radio station that Olly made his original comments on, Taylor hit back at Olly, saying: “I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars.

“They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there.”

She went on to add: “My first album came out when I was sixteen, I would write about my life as I saw it, as I felt it and then what happens is that as you get more successful, you have more and more people paying attention to what you’re doing.

“You’ve been doing it the same way your entire career as a songwriter, but all of a sudden your perspective has changed.”

Okay, we totes agree that it’s fine to write about your personal life experiences, but we really don’t think that Olly was slandering her songwriting as a whole.

In fact, he was actually just suggesting that four songs about a two month romance that ended over two years ago is a *little* bit excessive.

So what exactly did the ‘Troublemaker’ singer say about Tay?

Well, after discovering that her latest single ‘Out Of The Woods’ is about his old chum, the former X Factor star decided to send a little message to T-Swizzle.

Speaking on 2DayFM’s breakfast show, he said: “Come on [Taylor], let it go. Write something new that isn’t about Harry.

“Bless him, it’s been like two years and he’s still getting lashed out, isn’t he?”

Sorry Taylor, we love you and all but we’re definitely going to conclude that he didn’t say anything sexist there at all.

It was previously revealed that Taylor’s newest single is about her very short-lived romance with the One Direction star and she has since added that she wrote it about a “fragile” relationship and the “anxiety” she felt within it.

Speaking to Good Morning America, Tay spilled: “This song is about the fragility and kind of breakable nature of some relationships.

“This was a relationship where I was kind of living day to day wondering where it was going, if it was gonna go anywhere, if it was gonna end the next day.

“It’s a relationship where you kind of never feel like you’re standing on solid ground. And that kind of a feeling brings on excitement, but also extreme anxiety, and kind of a frantic feeling of wondering.”

Succesfully making dating Harry Styles sound like one big panic attack from start to finish.

And on top of this single she has also spilled that her new album boasts three more Harry-and-his-man-bun inspired songs for us to marvel at.

There is ‘I Wish You Would’, which is about a guy who buys a house nearby to her, ‘All You Had To Do Was Stay’ about an ex who doesn’t want to commit, and then the even less subtle track called ‘Style’, about a boy with slicked back hair and a white T-Shirt, which she tells the magazine she should have called ‘I’m Not Even Sorry’ because it is so bloomin’ obvious.

They were together for two months.


Soz Tay, but we’re Team Olly with this one.
