Britney Spears Defended for Not Writing Own Music
"Sinatra didn't write a song, Garth Brooks barely wrote anything," songwriter Ryan Tedder tells THR.
Britney Spears has come under fire for not writing her own music.
So what, songwriter (and OneRepublic member) Ryan Tedder tells The Hollywood Reporter.
"I love that Britney does that. She knows where she is, and she shows up to the studio and says 'What am I singing today guys? Okay, cool! Let me look at it,' Tedder says -- the same day Spears' album Femme Fatale topped the Billboard charts.
"She's not trying to... Sinatra didn't write a song, Garth Brooks barely wrote anything, George Strait has had I think 51 No. 1's and he has yet to write a song. Rascal Flatts are one of the biggest country acts in the world, and all of their hits are written by other people. So to me it's whatever, be thankful for what you have,” he goes on.
Heather Bright, who penned tunes for Spears' Femme Fatale, also defended the singer after blogs criticized her for having no co-writing credits on the new album.
"I would just like to address one thing! The media is talking trash about how Britney didn’t write any of the songs on her album … HELLO! Wake up everybody! NONE OF THESE ARTISTS WRITE THEIR OWN SONGS!!!!!!" she blogged.
