Taylor Swift is a Billboard Babe

Taylor Swift is a Billboard Babe

Country’s teen queen Taylor Swift shows how much of a fighter she is in the new issue of Billboard.

“Being on a little record label, you have to fight harder than being on a bigger record label to be on award shows, to be a performer and a presenter and to get big tours and support,” shares the 18-year-old country singing sensation. “My record label [Big Machine Records] had 12 employees when I put out my album and my single and I just kept looking around and thinking, ‘Some day we are going to grow and this is going to change and we are going to have a fighting chance.’”

    Taylor is way better singer, better personality and much more prettier than the biggest Bitch of country singer (per Lainey Blog)Carrie Underwood.

    Taylor is way better singer, with a great personality and much prettier than the biggest B***tch of country music ( per Lainey blog) Carrie Underwood. Taylor is taking over the spot that once belong to Carrie “the queen of famale country singer”. what a sight to treasure

  • CLEM

  • alllthegossip

  • tammy

    Taylor rocks and Carrie Underwood is a B**tch. Carrie underwood has lost her luster.

  • flutters

    Taylor has a distribution deal with the biggest major label, Universal. They’re doing a lot of her promotion too.

  • Lilly Whores[;

    She is So Beautiful! :) Taylor You rock! :P

  • John

    JJ and Tammy,

    I totally agree, Carrie Underwood had lost her luster. She is consider a biggest female dog in country music. One of the biggest DJ in Nashville called her “Carrie Underwear” on air and he did not apologized when his co-DJ tried to remind him of her correct name.

  • lol

    she is beautiful, i loved the cover
    and i like her songs

  • leighton & blake fan

    Taylor is such a great singer and she is beautiful.Great cover.

  • erin

    taylor is hot and i can’t wait in til FEARLESS comes out!

  • T J

    Taylor is fast becoming the person every young country wannabe is trying to emulate. And for good reason, Taylor has everything going for her and she is gaining fan support faster than anyone in the industry.
    “Fearless” is going to out sell her debut cd and with that she will even be a bigger star than she is now! What a role model! What business sense! What care she has for her fans! Rhonda keeps saying Taylor is the real deal. I agree! Taylor Knows and Taylor Rocks!

  • KK

    Beautiful lady <3 Gorgeous. I wished i had hair like her :P
    She’s def the most inspiring, strong , independent country star, I’ve ever met. After the breakup..i’m so surprised how quick she’s changed and managed to move on, along with her career.
    Def Fearless ;) Her CD is sure to hit number 1, just like the Jonas bros. & demi (L)

    Tay is a amazing role model for all girls, all over the world, and has always continued to live life with nothing but a sweet smile & a loving heart ^^

    But she’s right about working her way up, to a higher record deal.
    She wasn’t that, too famous, all over..but is more popular then other country stars.
    Sum of her music’s were good, not all, but SOME.
    doesn’t mean im not a fan- i sorta like country music now :)

    Tay all the way (L0

  • LadyLeigh

    she so sweet she makes my teeth hurt, wish she would grow-up, and stop being a drama queen, listens to sad songs, oh what will I do with my free time.

  • me

    she is amazing :-)
    I’ve met her before, such a sweetheart. She treats everyone like her best friend, I love that. Amazing personality, and so much talent.

  • kel

    yeah! taylor!

  • Amber

    Whatever the break up was a Publicity Stunt & thats just what she wanted and it looks like she is getting it.

  • anna


    carrie can sing taylors bony tonedead ass under the rug. her songs are verbal diary writeouts, and she cant sing live if her life depended on it. she lip synchs, screams, and claws. let her move to pop already she belongs there with her talentless butt.

  • Cynthia


  • stfu

    Carrie definitely has a better voice. Why choose between the girls? Can’t there be more than one gal at the top of her game in a genre? I mean, really. People should not be threatened by the newer, younger person, if they have different personalities and gimmicks.

    Taylor has better eyebrows, but she sorta alien looking.

  • Carmen Q

    Taylor we love your CHANGE video!!!! And we can not wait for your new album. We are your biggest fans in NJ. WE LOVE YOU!!!!

  • angela
