The ‘Kill Bill’ singer SZA is all praise for Taylor Swift in the recent interview with Billboard. She applauded the pop titan for re-recording her albums post the masters controversy.
“Taylor letting that whole situation go with her masters and then selling all of those f–king records. That’s the biggest “f–k you” to the establishment I’ve ever seen in my life, and I deeply applaud that sh-t,” she said when asked about whom she looks up to in the music industry.
The two singers recently met at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards and posed for a cute picture together.
SZA also shouted out few other female artists. “There’s a lot of women I look up to in general that I don’t know personally, but watching them is incredible. Beyoncé, but who doesn’t look up to Beyoncé? I love Jozzy’s and Starrah’s energy. I love the way Nija is from New Jersey and has been able to transmute her energy from being a writer to an artist. Kehlani’s hella effervescent, and you can just feel the energy when she’s performing. I love Chloe Bailey and her commitment to perfection — I feel like she’s going to be a legend,” she added.
SZA talks about being the Woman of the Year
The star singer was earlier named Billboard’s Woman of the Year for 2023. She talked about it in the interview. “It really scares me. But I really want to do something with my time in the sun right now. There’s so much I want to do for other people. I need to do something to deserve that in a way that has nothing to do with me, something that’s selfless and uplifts other women, people, period. It makes me feel more responsible than I was before.”
She further added, “I feel like I owe everyone so much more than just smiling and getting onstage and waving. Part of it I know is just letting God use me and be myself and letting that be part of the work. But I know that there’s something more that I have to do.”
Earlier SZA announced that she’ll be dropping the deluxe edition of her latest album ‘SOS’ with 10 bonus tracks soon.
