Wynonna Judd Apologizes for Dissing Taylor Swift
Wynonna Judd does not want to be the next Kanye West.
The country singer has apologized on her website for her slamming Taylor Swift, who became the youngest artist ever to win the Country Music Association Awards' Entertainer of the Year trophy.
"I understand that my comment . . . came across as a negative statement," Judd writes.
Before the awards, Judd told USA Today that the 19 year-old's nomination was "too much, too soon . . . Time is God's way of keeping everything from happening at once. It's just too much of a good thing soon . . . I want kids to earn it."
But Judd clarified online Thursday: "My intent was not to take anything away from her talent and contributions to the country music industry...all of which are truly unprecedented for an artist of ANY age."
She adds: "Taylor is a beautiful, hard working young woman that deserves the success she has had and I support her as an artist and as a woman in the business."
The 45 year-old Judd became a young country star herself in the 1980s as half of the duo The Judds (her partner was mom Naomi).
