The Blur star gets called out by the former Take That member in foul-mouthed remarks after the former suggested the 'Bad Blood' singer didn't pen her own songs.

AceShowbiz - Robbie Williams has mocked Damon Albarn, telling the Blur frontman to "get a few ribs removed and give yourself a nosh" after the latter criticized Taylor Swift.

The "Angels" hitmaker - who has five of his seven chart topping singles to date and collaborated with Guy Chambers for much of his solo career - has addressed comments the Blur star made earlier this year when he claimed "Taylor Swift doesn't write her own songs."

Asked about the remarks, Robbie told NME, "I think that when people say that, what they're actually doing is having a w*** about themselves. It's true! You know, it's like, why don't you cut the middle man out - just get a few ribs removed and give yourself a nosh, you t***! Because all you're doing is going, 'Hey, I'm f****** amazing!' "

"Nothing good comes from it in any way, other than it's a sort of dopamine hit for themselves, going, 'Do you know - I'm a real one.' OK. Good for you. F*** off."

Although he admitted Damon's comments reminiscent of a by-gone era where pop stars would frequently take shots at each other, Robbie insisted he's keeping any of his own digs under wraps.

He added, "Oh, listen - I've got a cannon-full that just remain in my brain, that if it was the '90s or the early 2000s, I would be releasing them right now for you. But as it happens, you can't do that shit anymore."

After Taylor called him out for his remarks, the 53-year-old singer insisted he never wanted to "discredit" her and suggested his comments had been sensationalised to attract attention.

Taylor retweeted a Los Angeles Times interview about Damon's interview which read, "Albarn also spills his thoughts on some of today's chart-topping music artists. Billie Eilish? 'I think she's exceptional.' Taylor Swift? 'She doesn't write her own songs.' "

She then wrote, "I was such a big fan of yours until I saw this. I write ALL of my own songs. Your hot take is completely false and SO damaging. You don't have to like my songs but it's really f***** up to try and discredit my writing. WOW. PS I wrote this tweet all by myself in case you were wondering."

Damon replied, "I totally agree with you. i had a conversation about songwriting and sadly it was reduced to clickbait. I apologise unreservedly and unconditionally. The last thing I would want to do is discredit your songwriting. I hope you understand. - Damon (sic)."

In the interview, the "Parklife" singer insisted he wasn't "hating" on Taylor but suggested collaborating with other songwriters was "very different" to taking sole responsibility for her work.
