Charli XCX acquired some backlash over a remark in a Pitchfork profile about her that was revealed on Tuesday (Aug. 6).
On the subject of her opening slt on Taylor Swift’s Status stadium tour final 12 months, Charli stated, “I’m really grateful that [Taylor] asked me on that tour. “But as an artist, it kind of felt like I was getting up on stage and waving to 5-year-olds.”
“I’ve done so much of it, and it really cemented my status as this underdog character, which I like now. But I need to just own my own fucking shit finally,” she continued. Swifties weren’t thrilled in regards to the seemingly detrimental shade towards acting on the tour, and bombarded her Instagram remark part and Twitter mentions in protection.
Charli has since uploaded a press release on Twitter to make clear that what she stated was a simplified model of the dialog. ““As I say in the article and have said many times before, I am extremely grateful to Taylor for inviting me to open for her,” she wrote. “She’s one of the biggest artists of my generation and the reputation tour was one of the biggest tours in history.”
“Within the printed model of this a lot wider dialog my solutions about this tour had been boiled down into one form of bizarre sentence – main as much as that tour I’d been enjoying a tonne of 18+ membership exhibits and so to be on stage in entrance of all ages was new to me and made me strategy my performances with an entire new form of power – extra so I talked about the way it was sensible opening for Taylor, I am extraordinarily grateful for the chance I was given and the way a lot enjoyable it was to carry out for a brand new viewers,” she continued.
