The same week Kanye West released a rambling, but seemingly authentic, apology to Taylor Swift for interrupting her award acceptance at last year's Video Music Awards, another famous musician is taking aim at the country star.

"I find it embarrassing that adults are like, 'Taylor Swift is very talented.' She's not," said Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson in an interview with Nylon Guys magazine. "She might be cute, but she's horrible," he said.

Robinson then bashed Swift and other artists he deemed similar as packaged products.

"They have stylists who dress them, they make records with producers who play a chord into the computer and it all comes out the same...When you have computers doing it all for you...there's no individuality," he said. "Singing isn't always about being on key, it's about emotionality."

West was basically forced into hiding for the better part of a year after his incident, so Robinson better have a back up plan formulated in case he needs to duck out of the public spotlight when the inevitable backlash hits.
