    Courtney Love has dec lared Taylor Swift is not "interesting" or "important"

    The 59-year-old Hole rocker has risked the wrath of Taylor's devoted fans by giving her opinion on the pop star, insisting that although the singer is adored by young girls, she's not leaving a particularly stand-out legacy


    She told The Standard newspaper: "Taylor is not important. She might be a safe space for girls, and she's probably the Madonna of now, but she's not interesting as an artist."

    Despite comparing Taylor to Madonna, Courtney went on to admit she's not actually a big fan of the 'Holiday' hitmaker either.

    She said of Madonna: "I don't like her and she doesn't like me. I loved 'Desperately Seeking Susan', but for the city of New York as much as her."

    Courtney also gave her thoughts on another pop star - Lana Del Rey - insisting the singer needs to take some time away from the music industry.

    She said: "I haven't liked Lana since she covered a John Denver song, and I think she should really take seven years off. Up until 'Take Me Home Country Roads' I thought she was great.

    "When I was recording my new album, I had to stop listening to her as she was influencing me too much."

    It comes after Courtney launched a new series championing women in music for BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Sounds called 'Courtney Love's Women' in which she shared the songs that have soundtracked her life as well as being a "celebration of women in music".

    The series ran for eight episodes from April 8 to April 15.

    Samantha Moy, Head of BBC Radio 6 Music, previously said in a statement: "Courtney Love is an icon and a trailblazer - her influence on music and culture over the decades is undeniable. At 6 Music, we invite artists to share their stories directly with their fans and our listeners and I'm very proud that Courtney will be hosting a series of incredible shows for us in April."
