Musicians who don't write their own songs

It bugs me slightly but not enough to stop listening to the stuff. I mean, if I like the song then I like the song. That's how I see it.
It's more impressive if they write their own stuff but even if they don't it's not the end of the world for me.
It's definitely weird hearing a musician that never writes his/her own stuff playing a song that he wrote.
It almost doesn't sound like the musician.
When it comes to the other types of music I listen to, t doesn't turn me off but it also doeswn't help anything.
I personally enjoy songs that are sung because of the lyrics and the voice that accompanies it.
It doesn't matter to me who is behind the creation of the song.
Singers for me are primarily performers. They can even transform someone's nonsense lyrics into something that actually touch people. One doesn't need writing talent to be a good performer on stage or recording.
I do admire those who both write and perform their music. I just don't think less of those who simply can do the latter.
It doesn't really bother me though, I just find I appreciate songs more when I know it's coming from the person singing it because it just adds to the talent. But that's not to say there aren't some fantastic covers out there, or musicians who don't write their own material.
