Lizzo has taken to Twitter to criticise music critics after Pitchfork gave her new album, 'Cuz I Love You a 6.5/10 review.

The reviewer wrote: "Despite her obvious skill and charisma, some of the album's 11 songs are burdened with overwrought production, awkward turns of phrase, and ham-handed rapping."

The singer responded by tweeting that critics who don't play music themselves should be "unemployed".

Is she right?

Are critics still entitled to express their opinions even if they are not musicians themselves?

John Caddell and Larissa Nolan discussed this in our music slot, as well as looking ahead to Joe Jackson at the Olympia and giving their thoughts on Madonna's new music.
