Jon Bon Jovi showered Taylor Swift with accolades, hailing her as "absolutely incredible."

The legendary rocker, 62, in a recent interview with Variety, praised Swift's impressive career, stating that she has single-handedly "created an industry."

Bon Jovi's glowing endorsement of the 14-time Grammy winner highlights the Bad Blood singer's immense impact on the music industry.

"She utilised what she does best," Bon Jovi explained, emphasising how Swift, 34, has always stayed true to her roots.

"She sings like Taylor Swift. She plays guitar like Taylor Swift," the musician— sounding almost like he was quoting her Tortured Poets Department song Clara Bow — added.

"She's not trying to be something that she's not, and it is connected with an audience that is unique."

For many years, Swift and Bon Jovi were considered colleagues in the field.

Swift joined the Runaway rocker on stage during his 2013 rendition of Livin' on a Prayer at Kensington Palace, and Prince William accompanied her right up.

In an earlier interview with The Independent, Bon Jovi credited Swift with initiating the impromptu on-stage collaboration, revealing that she took charge and led the way.

He recalled how Swift "grabbed [him] by the arm" and rushed onto the stage, with both of them seamlessly singing along to the lyrics.

Bon Jovi has frequently praised Swift in recent interviews, including while promoting his Hulu docuseries, Thank You, Goodnight.
