Country star Jana Kramer revealed that her 8-year-old daughter came to her and asked if it’s okay that she doesn’t like superstar singer Taylor Swift.

During the 40-year-old singer/actress’ recent podcastWhine Down with Jana Kramer,” the “I Hope It Rains” hitmaker said her daughter Jolie Rae was at a birthday party and asked, “Mom, is it OK that I don’t like Taylor Swift?”

“And I was like, ‘This is so crazy because we’ve never had this conversation,'” Kramer said. “I go, ‘Honey, 1000%, you can like whoever you want.’ I was like, ‘It’s just because she’s super famous, you know, and everyone loves her does not mean that you have to love her too.’”

“Just [like] the Beatles,” she added. “It’s like, you don’t have to like that. And sometimes, I didn’t like the Beatles because everyone loved the Beatles. So I’ve always kinda go opposite.”

Kramer then admitted she “didn’t love the new album,” “The Tortured Poets Department” (TTPD), from Swift, but said she thinks the 34-year-old singer is “an insane entertainer. I still respect her as an artist.”

Swift’s latest album is topping the charts, but moms of young Swift fans, known as “Taylor Tots,” have expressed concern about the explicit lyrics on TTPD, and the darker, mature subjects mentioned in the songs, as previously reported.


The “Blank Space” hitmaker’s new album contains seven explicit songs that all come with warning labels, which means the lyrics can include things like strong language, violence, sex, or substance abuse, notifying parents it “may be inappropriate for kids.”

The 7 songs that have caused a stir among this group of moms are “The Tortured Poets Department,” “Down Bad,” “But, Daddy, I Love Him,” “Florida!!!,” “loml,” “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart,” and “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived,” the New York Post reported.

Over on the Facebook group Taylor Swift’s Vault — with close to 500,000 members — they have been busy discussing the issue, with moms of young fans saying they are shielding their little ones from the themes of sex and violence.

“I feel bad for all the Taylor Tots because most parents are not going to deem this album appropriate,” member Crystal Barkley wrote in a recent post that garnered a lot of attention.

“This album is definitely NOT suitable for kids,” Tana Hancock added.

Another mom wrote that she “already texted” her “daughter and said I have to go through it again and figure out what she can and can’t listen to.”

Some parents said they were less worried about the “curse words” than they were about the harm and violence.

Casey McDonald Smith wrote that it was the “self-harm, violence, and death talk” she’s “not feeling comfy with at this second.”
