Carrie Brownstein wears many hats. She’s an actress, musician, writer, comedian, and riot grrrl pioneer, so it only makes sense to add music critic to her already impressive repertoire.

VICE News Tonight” has teased her appearance on an upcoming episode on Twitter, with Brownstein expertly reviewing Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik’s new “Fifty Shades Darker” single “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.” Needless to say, she had some thoughts.

Brownstein, along with her comedy partner Fred Armisen, can currently be seen on “Portlandia,” which is in the midst of airing its seventh season on IFC. She also recently wrote and directed the short film “The Realest Real,” which stars Mahershala Ali, Natasha Lyonne, and Rowan Blanchard. But Swift and Malik may do well to take any musical-related advice Brownstein has to give.

Although mainstream audiences may know her best for her television and film work, Brownstein is also a founding member of the indie rock group Sleater-Kinney.

Brownstein’s appearance on “VICE News Tonight” airs February 7, 2017 at 7:30PM on HBO.
