Outrage Watch: Mumford & Sons unleash on Tidal

Welcome to the April 13, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Mumford & Sons want nothing to do with Tidal.

In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the Grammy-winning rock band greeted the mention of Jay Z's much-ballyhooed new artist-owned streaming service — which has the backing of such music superstars as Madonna, Beyonce, Jack White and Rihanna — with “a series of loud fart sounds” before being slammed further by frontman Marcus Mumford, who told the website:

“We wouldn”t have joined it anyway, even if they had asked. We don”t want to be tribal. …A band of our size shouldn”t be complaining. And when they say it”s artist-owned, it”s owned by those rich, wealthy artists.” Or as guitarist Winston Marshall called them: “New school fucking plutocrats.”

Wait, is that a compliment?

Outraged: Madonna haters
Target: Madonna
Why: Madonna's awkward onstage kiss with Drake at Coachella on Sunday unleashed the Madonna-bashing hordes on social media, with some even going so far as to imply that the “Rebel Heart” boss sexually assaulted the Toronto rapper.
