    Damon Albarn has accused The Rolling Stones of "objectifying" Sydney Sweeney in their latest music video

    The 26-year-old actress appears in a skimpy leather outfit in the back of a car as younger versions of the group's members Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood are seen on billboards in their video for new single 'Angry' but Blur frontman Damon, 55, has slammed the rockers as being "completely disconnected" from reality


    He told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "I listened to their new song and watched this horrible music video showing them at different stages of their lives on billboards.

    "And this young woman ¬objectified. What the hell is this? There's something completely disconnected. "

    The 'Country House' hitmaker went on to slam the group overall, claiming that the 'Paint It Blackers' - all of whom are now aged between 76 and 80 - have got increasingly "worse" in recent years as he wondered what "joy" they could be getting out of making "exactly the same" music more than 60 years after they started.

    He said: The truth is, they have become worse. Worse at persisting to stay themselves. That's something I don't understand. Making exactly the same music but not that good. There must be no joy in doing ¬something like this."

    Damon previously slated the the band's new album new album 'Hackney Diamonds', taking umbrage with the fact that it was launched at a venue where they had never played before.

    He told French magazine Les Inrockuptibles: "My family lives in Hackney and the way they showed up at the Hackney Empire venue really p***** me off. They've never done a thing in Hackney - they've never played there, never contributed to ¬anything. They just showed up. It's all nonsense."
