    We still hope that Carrie will save her hometown movie theater. I don’t know her personally, but I know that she is a wonderful person.

  • RaisingChild

    Carrie is gorgeous even though the dress kind of looks like a frat toga costume. Great heels!

  • Mary

    @Sarah: I instantly thought the same thing I wonder if she saw it at fashion week at wanted it for herself

  • carmen

    Carrie is not pretty. She looks like trailer trash that is trying to look sexy. She wears way to much makeup. Bet she looks like crap when she wakes up in the morning. She is a snotty fake. Glad Taylor Swift beat her butt at the AMA’s. She could teach Carrie how to be classy, natural and humble!

  • meh

    taylor > carrie

  • Ancho

    @carmen–you should get your eyes examined. Carrie is incredibly beautiful, and a classy addition to what was a trashy and cheap awards show this thing was. Taylor is talented as well, but very much an amateur. Taylor’s live performances are horrible, she needs more time to hone her skills. No dissing here, I’m just saying that by giving her the Entertainer of the Year Award and some of the other high honors she’s getting is doing her more harm than good. She needs experience, some concert time and working with old school professionals to hone her craft. She really should give Kanye some accolades, without that cr*p he pulled she wouldn’t have won half of the awards she has in the last couple of weeks.

  • khristi

    I have to say that i am far from a country music fan (I mean far), but I really like her strong voice.

  • carmen

    Taylor has sold more cd than carrie has and obviously the fans like her. The awards were voted on by the fans which is why Taylor won. Carrie wont be around much longer. Hopefully, she will go back to being the fat oklahoma country girl that she really is. She is so fake with her stupid false lashes, overly white teeth and spray tan and fake barbie doll hair and she cant dress. Her outfit was atrocious tonight. The shoes didnt match the hideas dress and no she didnt get a hair cut she just took her hair extensions out and end up with 80′s hair! yuk

  • LCD

    Carrie < Taylor < Justin Bieber/JB

  • Jamie

    Carmen, you obviously have problems and some major jealousy issues. In case you haven’t noticed, Carrie has 4 Grammys, tons of ACM and CMA awards, and is the ACM Entertainer of the Year, holds many BIllboard awards, and the list goes on. Obviously you don’t know what you’re talking about, Carrie will be around MUCH longer than Taylor. Fans of Taylor don’t realize the girl can’t sing live, but more and more people are noticing that and how far from “country music” she is. Case in point: her performance at the opening of the CMA Awards, hmmph when did throwing couches and sliding down a pole, flipping your hair around become country music? Many people are shaking their heads, to a big fat NO for Taylor Swift. Carrie actually has the vocal talent and range, Taylor couldn’t even reach the notes Carrie can, that’s probably why Carrie is a member of the Grand Ole Opry and has 4 Grammys. Taylor may be on top now, but she’s on her way down boo hoo :(

  • Sabrina

    always plain and boring, is she trying to be barbie’s living twin? She also seems a bit full of herself to ME.

  • anon

    Carrie is better than Taylor because she can sing, period.

  • Miss Anonymous


    Wtf? She is gorgeous and has great fashion sense. You only wish you could look that good.

  • Miss Anonymous


    She’s not.

  • jana

    she always look like a barbie doll, pounds and more pounds of makeup

  • Dana

    I wish someone would tell Carrie to practice how she stands. She’s such a pretty girl yet she looks kind of trashy the way she always has her legs spread apart when she’s dancing and posing for the cameras with her short dresses.

    She stands like she just got off a horse and can’t get her legs back together or like she’s got a problem in the crotch area…….

  • che

    Carrie is so beautiful and What a amazing voice !!

  • Sami

    @carmen: Jealous much?? Carrie has talent and Taylor has hardly any talent–absolutely NONE in the vocal department. Taylor is not cute at all without makeup–especially her eyes that are small and squinty–and all that makeup to try to cover her imperfections. She is SOOOOO overrated!!!

  • TY

    Swift should be thanking Kenya for all her awards because she definately did not win them because of her talent—she has NONE in the singing department at all. She is dating a 17 year old guy—jail bait. She is 20 years old and can only sing about tween breakups—boring!!!!!!!!

  • mailey

    another crap dress and hair-do.

  • Sophie

    I love her hair. She is very pretty. And her music is great. :)

  • canadian girl

    Taylors opening # at the CMA’s was horrendous. Her next # she had fans singing with her to mask her off key singing. She only sounds good on CD which is on radio. Beyonce blows her away in Pop. Carrie blows her away in country. Gaga blew her away as artist of the year.
    Taylor is part of the whole Twilight frenzy. By dating Taylor, she pulls all her fans and his fans voting for her. These kids dont know what in the heck an on key singing voice is. Taylor is talented-as a song writer/entertainer but vocalist no way.

  • Sara

    I just want to scrub all that makeup off her face! UGH!

  • Kelly James

    I think Taylor swift is better!

  • Gordy

    She has very athletic legs!

  • carmen

    @Jamie: UMmmm no jelousy issues here. Im not that immature and I am pretty cute too! lol Just calling it like I see it and it seems alot of other people on here agree with me ;)

  • Amanda

    I see the Taylor fans are doing some of their work on this board, spamming it with hate for Carrie and love for Taylor. Get over yourselves. No matter how many awards Taylor wins, she STILL doesn’t have any vocal talent. Carrie looks great without make-up. Have you even seen Taylor without? She doesn’t look so great (and that is being nice). I adore them both, but you would have to be a moron to believe that Taylor is actually more talented or attractive than Carrie.

  • Kelly

    She looks amazing! And she sounded….wow! Great vocals!

  • Michael

    At first I was voting for Taylor after what Kanye did to her. But it is so over rated now. She can’t really sing live that’s for sure cause she sounded horrible at the vma awards…. She was off key, anyone disagree can go on YouTube and listen to it again. I was a bit disappointed when I watched it. Carrie on the other hand can sing way better for sure but she does look like a made up Barbie doll but who are we to judge on how they want to look like. Someone might say the same about you and I. Think before you judge!

  • lakers fan in boston

    she looks cute as always
    she used a bit 2 much makeup but other than that she looks find
    like her dress, cute and simple

  • jay
