Our jaws dropped when we heard that Olly Murs dissed Taylor Swift's new song "Out of the Woods," claiming she writes too much about Harry Styles. Based on her reaction, she felt the same way! While appearing on the Australian radio station 2DAYFM, the singer slammed the critics who blast her for writing about her exes — and it sounds like she was talking directly to Olly.
"You're going to have people who say 'oh you know, she just writes songs about her ex boyfriends'," she said. "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."
We totally agree! She should be allowed to write about whatever she wants to write about. And apparently, he felt really bad about the diss too, and even sent her a letter to apologize.
"I reached out to Taylor around two days ago. I gave her a letter and said, 'I'm really sorry…It came out wrong. I'm sorry I didn't mean to make any offense'," he told the Daily Mail.
The singer says he just wanted to defend his friend, but the joke came out harsher than it should have.
"It always came out that every article says Taylor writes songs and they always link it to Harry so I was just making a joke and defending my mate."
While it's cute that he cares so much about his friend, he didn't have to bring her down in the process! We're just glad that he apologized for his comments. The "Shake It Off" singer doesn't seem like the type to hold a grudge, so she's probably forgiven him now that he said he's sorry.
Do you agree with Taylor? Do you think Olly had a good response? Tell us in the comments!
