Taylor Swift knows it. Taylor Swift even sang about it:
Haters are gonna hate... hate... hate.
But the singer was likely caught off guard nonetheless when critics criticized one of her new singles, "Welcome to New York," saying it unrealistically romanticized the experience of living in The Big Apple.
In an interview with USA Today, however, one of the country’s best known artists (and a New York native) stood up for T. Swizzle.
"You snoots. Let her in," Billy Joel said, addressing the critics. "That's what New York is all about. I say, 'Welcome.'"
