Open your eyes Taylor Squint!

# 5

Scary thought, another “live” performance. Surprised that no one has told her yet that she CAN NOT sing?

# 7

Must we thank JOHN DENVER for that?

# 8

Ewww… sorry, but this girl can’t sing live… out of tunem :(

When will she pose for Playboy?

She looks like such a brat in that picture. they should at least try to make her look humble…
her songs are good, but her singing live is really bad. why will they not get her some voice lessons??? you can be taught to be on key at least.

Taylor is a great talent I don’t think she would of stayed at no.1 on the pop chart for four weeks if she could’nt sing

im so happy to Joe dumped her!
and i think disgusting that she does.
i hate her. she is a ***** and talentless

why is every celeb doing snl now?? lol

why is every celeb doing snl now??

Awe all the Jonas fans are jealous because Taylor continues to kick Joes a$$ on the charts.

Keep it up Taylor, you’re amazing!

i really wish that all posts regarding taylor swift would just stay on justjaredjr :(

Taylor rulz. Yay, can’t wait. I love the new song!

This girl looks like Rene Zellwegger. That’s not a compliment.

this girl is hot and smart and funny and can sing great

Taylor is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! A very, very talented young lady. Love everything about this sweet, humble gal.

Taylor was too good for Joe Jonas(as we can see from his immature and cowardly behavior–didn’t have the guts to break up face-to face).

Now she is free to rule the music world without him to drag her down.

Newsflash for the delusional Jonas fans : they barely sold 1 million copies of their 2008 album(released since August 2008) while she has sold more than 2.5 million copies of Fearless since Nov 2008 and guess what–the album is still number 1 !(beating out Britney and Beyonce)

Am I the only person that thinks she is a awful!!!! singer??? She’s passable on her cds and radio but at award shows and on SNL she was really terrible. Totally out of tune for both songs. UGH!

Yeah, me too! She really sucked on SNL. Maybe it’s nerves for her, although by now she should be able to perform better than that after all the performances (I assume) she’s given. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure she’s a great person, and her newest song sounds great on the radio, but, let’s face it – she sounds BAD live. Studios can obviously work magic if this is how she sounds live versus on an album… I just can’t respect an artist unless they do sound good live. There are too many great artists out there putting in their time playing out and sounding amazing live for her to last long sounding like she does. Come on America – find some real talent and stop supporting this kind of (manufactured?) crap! (Sorry Taylor – prove me wrong.)


big deal, she can write a song, but that’s the only thing she’s talented at. she can carry a tune when she sings, but other than that, there’s nothing more to it. i heard her sing umbrella, and it wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t good either

forget this old news, the newest is Taylor swift’s SNL videos.. OMG never seen her as a vampire before and sang in Saturday Night Live

as for the anti-fans who say its booring… I say, “are you kidding me? You should open your eye balls a little bit and turn-on your sense of humor even once”

All the juiciest info plus the firelight video: Twilight Spoof:

@beyond blah……:

Okay, you gotta admit that monologue song a.k.a LA-LA-LA was really adorable, wouldn’t be any better if Taylor swift is not the one who sang that song!
