The iconic rock and blues guitarist Eric Clapton’s daughter, Ruth Clapton, posted a story on her Instagram account and shocked her fans and followers when she revealed her secret taste in music.
There is no doubt that Eric Clapton is one of the most famous rockstars of all time. He was ranked second on Rolling Stone’s list of the ‘100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time’ and 4th in Gibson’s ‘Top 50 Guitarists of All Time’.
As people have been listening to his music for years and some have even grown up listening to his songs, Clapton’s fans saw it as a given that his daughter was a rock fan too. However, with her latest Instagram story post, Ruth might prove them wrong.
In her recent Instagram story, Ruth shared Taylor Swift’s latest film called ‘Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions’ and revealed that she’s a massive fan of Taylor. She went on to say that she is not sorry at all and showed that she’s a proud pop fan.
This definitely came as a shock to both her and Eric’s fans and followers who came across Ruth’s story. Clapton fans didn’t expect that his daughter would be also a pop fan but then again, a parent’s career should not affect their kids’ lives and tastes.
In her story, Ruth stated that Taylor’s latest album helped her during a difficult time for her, and thus, she’s really excited to watch the movie about its studio sessions. As you may recall, approximately a week ago, Ruth Clapton had announced that she and her husband are getting a divorce.
It seems like Taylor Swift helped Ruth Clapton during her heartbreak just like she helped millions of other people. Nonetheless, Ruth’s love for Taylor still came as a shock to the people who thought she was a solid rock-fan.
Here’s what Ruth said while retweeting Taylor Swift’s latest film:
“Yes! Massive Taylor fan and I’m not sorry at all. This album got me through a really tough bit of lockdown actually so I’m super excited to watch this.”
