In a recent chat with Broken Records, Damon Albarn of Blur stated that his daughter is calling him a boomer. During the podcast, while discussing Blur’s latest song, ‘The Narcissist’ and calling the latest era a ‘narcissistic age of epoch,’ he was asked if he ever talks about these with his daughter. Albarn, addressing the age that she’s at now, replied:
“She thinks, understandably, that – I mean, she’s called me a boomer on a couple of occasions which I’m sure is not a good thing.”
When asked if he’s a ‘boomer,’ he replied:
“I don’t think so.”
He was also asked if he’s a Gen X, to which he responded with:
“I really have no idea what I am, but boomer is surely before me. I can’t be a boomer. She’s been doubly rude by calling me a boomer. I think it’s intentionally- I mean, I deserve it, so it’s fine.”
A few tweets have been shared for his so-called ‘outrage’. One of the followers of the unofficial Damon Albarn page replied:
“Gen X are the first people who had their lives messed up by boomers, it’s like the most offensive thing you can say to us.”
The mentioned song ‘The Narcissist’ was released on May 18, and the new album ‘The Ballad Of Darren’ is set to be released on July 21.
