Charli XCX recently spoke about her experience as the opening act for Taylor Swift's R eputation Tour. In this way, the singer was extremely sincere and pointed out that it did not seem like a very good experience at a professional level:

I'm really thankful that Taylor asked me to be on his tour. But, as an artist, he felt like he was going on stage to greet 5-year-olds.

Charli XCX's statements simply referred to her music being aimed at a different audience than Taylor Swift's, so fans of the latter might not appreciate her as an artist.

They criticized the Fancy singer for speaking badly about her participation in Swift's tour, when she was given the opportunity to become more known worldwide.
