She was unimpressed by his performance and told him he will do well as a songwriter, not a singer because he’s a ‘terrible’ performer.

”Somebody lied to you.

Somebody told you to come here and audition.

You should go back and tell them that they aren’t your friend because that was not a good audition.

You have a sweet-talking voice and it comes out in your singing voice, but your performance is terrible.

You are never going to make money from being a singer. I love you, you are so sweet, but you are not a singer. You are not a singer.

For songwriting, hit me up, we could talk, but that singing is not going to work. Sorry Darling”she said
