Taylor Swift recently admitted to Jay Leno that she’s listening to a lot of Nicki Minaj, 50 Cent and Rihanna these days, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t appreciate music closer to her style, like Mumford and Sons.
“I think so many people just can’t believe Taylor Swift is singing a Mumford and Sons song. To the fans, Mumford and Sons is like, sacred. We all wanted to keep them secret, keep them safe, and they have just blown up,” one fan wrote on YouTube.
“It’s not a bad thing, and this cover is not bad. It is just weird. Loving a band so much, it’s such a bittersweet thing, you want them to have success because they are amazing and deserve it but at the same time you want to keep them hidden, because the mass media can destroy.”
We get it — but Mumford and Sons is getting a lot of attention these days, so they’ll soon be a household name (our prediction).
