Courtney Love slams Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Lana Del Rey in interview

Courtney Love has no love for famous stars from Taylor Swift to Beyonce.

In a new interview with British outlet The Standard, Love took shots at a series of the world's most famous female musical artists.

"Now, every successful woman is cloned, so there is just too much music. They're all the same. If you play something on Spotify, you get bombarded with a lot of stuff that's exactly the same," Love said in the interview published Saturday.

She added that Swift is "is not important" and noted that she "might be a safe space for girls, and she's probably the Madonna of now, but she's not interesting as an artist."

Love also took a swing at Lana Del Rey, who headlined Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival the day after the interview was published.

"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," Love continued.

The actress and widow of Kurt Cobain also isn't jumping on the bandwagon for Beyoncé's new album "Cowboy Carter," which explored the relationship that race plays in the country music establishment.

"I like the idea of Beyoncé doing a country record because it's about Black women going into spaces where previously only white women have been allowed, not that I like it much. As a concept, I love it. I just don't like her music."

Love also clapped back at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and its co-founder Jann Wenner, who was removed from the organization's board of directors after controversial comments he made about female and Black musicians.

"‘Five old white guys, right, who have apparently never heard of Kate Bush. I mean, really? Jann Wenner should be put out to pasture. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a joke. You know, some guy takes a girl out and tries to kiss her and she doesn't feel like it, and he gets his whole career ruined. But Jann Wenner is allowed to say that Black people and women weren't intellectual enough to be included in his book of rock 'n' roll masters? Eat me," Love said.
