Back in January, the Blur star made headlines when he claimed Taylor â€œdoesnâ€™t write her own songsâ€ during an interview.
When the journalist conducting the chat pointed out the Folklore singer has always penned her own material, Damon added: â€œCo-writing is very different to writing. Iâ€™m not hating on anybody, Iâ€™m just saying thereâ€™s a big difference between a songwriter and a songwriter who co-writes.â€
As Damonâ€™s remarks began doing the rounds online, Taylor herself hit back, tweeting: â€œI was such a big fan of yours until I saw this. I write ALL of my own songs.
â€œYour hot take is completely false and SO damaging. You donâ€™t have to like my songs but itâ€™s really fucked up to try and discredit my writing. WOW.â€
Damon later apologised â€œunreservedlyâ€, claiming his remarks had been taken out of context, with Liam weighing in during a new interview with NME.
The former Oasis singer â€“ who had a long-standing musical rivalry with the Blur and Gorillaz in the 1990s â€“ said: â€œAll them fucking gorilla albums are co-writes arenâ€™t they?â€
He continued: â€œI get it â€“ Noel [Gallagher, his brother and former bandmate] bangs on about it as well: â€˜Iâ€™m more important than you because I write my fucking songsâ€™.
â€œWell, [Damon] wonâ€™t be saying that again in a hurry, though, will he? Did he not get ran out of fucking town by the Swifters?â€
â€œI think sheâ€™s fucking cool, man,â€ he added. â€œShe does write her songs and Iâ€™m sure sheâ€™s co-wrote with people.â€
Like Damon Albarn, Liamâ€™s brother Noel has previously called Taylorâ€™s songwriting capabilities into question.
Back in 2015, he said: â€œWho says [sheâ€™s a talented songwriter]? Her parents? Name these people. Youâ€™re fucking lying.
â€œShe seems like a nice girl, but no one has ever said those words, and you fucking know it.â€
Noel made similar comments after Little Mixâ€™s historic win at last yearâ€™s Brit Awards, prompting a fantastic response from band member Jade Thirlwall.
