Taylor Swift: EW's Entertainer of the Year!

Taylor Swift: EW's Entertainer of the Year!

Taylor Swift slips into a tux and throw on a top hat on the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly, on stands today.

The 20-year-old country superstar was crowned the mag’s youngest-ever ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR. What an honor!

Taylor, who is currently dating Jake Gyllenhaal, opens up about the speculation that her ex-boyfriends are the subjects of the songs on her album Speak Now (Taylor Lautner, Joe Jonas, John Mayer). She shares, “Sometimes I would laugh because I would see it in print and it would say, ‘This song, which is written about her ex, so-and-so…’ And they would write about it as if it was fact. The fact is, I haven’t ever confirmed that any song is about any particular person. There’s something kind of freeing about that. As far as I’m concerned, it’s all still up in the air.”

    This is a joke, right? When will the madness end?

    As far as I’m concerned, it’s all still up in the air.” Of course you say that! What else can you say now that every1 is critising you for it! And I couldn’s agree with lululu more! MEGA-OVERRATED!!!!!!!!!

  • Lisa

    She has had an incredible year so congrats to her. Haters can keep hating while she does her thing.

  • Glambert

    Does she really think anybody would believe what she says?! Does she seriously think we are that dumb?!
    And sure she’s entertaining… Look at her new album… If some one is sooooooo eagerly talking crap about his/her exes in public and we don’t call it entertaining, I don’t know what is…

  • Bailey

    I love the photo. She is an amazing entertainer. People do speculate a lot about her and I think it is pretty classy how she handles it. Go Taylor!!

  • sandy

    that girl seems to be everywhere now…so annoying, what is so great about her???…she has no facial expressions at all, not very entertaining if you ask me…but maybe she has hidden talents, maybe the three J’s or the werewolf can give us a hint…

  • StarJacker

    over/under on the number of years before she’s in drug/alcohol rehab.. i’ll throw out 4.5…

    too famous, too young

  • Ashley

    I guess I have to burn my copy of “Entertainment Weekly” this week since that piece of crap is on it.

  • Taylor Rocks!!

    I think some of you just look up Taylor so you can make hateful comments about her. Taylor is a great entertainer. She sells out the largest concert arenas and her album went platinum the first week it came out. An album I might add that she wrote entirely by herself. It also received rave reviews. The Rollingstone Review was off the charts. No one could do this if they were not talented.Taylor is a true talent and think she is amazing artist.

  • Lonely_Angel

    she is getting on many magazines covers while she still can
    because her 15 minutes of fame is almost over ….now that she is 21
    and trying to appeal to an older audiance with (Jake showmance) attempt her older audiance (older than 3-16 years old) will soon turn on her for all the crapy live performances she pull specialy now that people are moving on from the kanye counter (which realy acounts for like 60% of the attention shes getting) + the Exes Trashing in her song is getting realy old
    Beside we are on a verge of a new year and i bet some 16 to 20 years boy or girl would appear and sweep all the media attention from the biebers and the swifters any way …lets just hope that this next IT STAR can actually Sing .

  • Michelle

    This is the best we can find? Here’s the real fact…she has an AMAZINGLY good publicist….and, as Chris Robinson pointed out, stylist and record producer….because she should not be nearing diva status now or ever!

    This is the world of music we live in…one created by Miss no-talent Autotune herself, Hilary Duff. I guess compared to Hilary…Taylor does look like Celine Dion.

  • Michael Real

    I like her photo there. She really looks innocent and pretty. I think what ever she says has some point. We all know that sometimes we should listen to what everyone says to us since they are only the one who can see it.

  • say what?

    Me thinks Taylor has narcissistic tendencies or worse.

  • mumford&fans

    What was EW smoking when they named her Entertainer of the Year? I am a girl and I can not stand her singing songs about ex’s and love all the time she’s the female Beiber STUPID MUSIC will lead to the end of the world.

  • ModestMouse

    Oh my god, GO AWAY!

  • lina

    eww why is taylor on the cover!! someone much more deserving should of been on it

  • Marcus

    Don’t be staring at me with those beady little rat eyes Taylor.I ain’t got no cheese.

  • Gina

    Ha Ha People! Taylor is on top of the world and you are just “MEAN”. :-)

  • karma

    this girl should thank kanye west for having a career ..let´s face it .. she s.u.c.k live

  • susana

    1.) Her eyebrows really bother me, i dont know why but they always have.
    2.) to everyone who is saying she writes her own music, therefore she is talented i have this to say, ANYONE can write that music. In fact I will write a taylor swift-esque song now: I woke up today and walked to school. Because I wear glasses I was a nerd and you were a cool football player. We sat under the bleachers and had our first kiss. oh oh oh oh. wwow you loved me even though im a nerd cool youre deep oh oh oh oh

    she really plays up the innocent card even though she sleeps with men a decade older than her. weird.

  • Anon

    The title should read…..Taylor Swift: EW’s Beard of the Year!

    What is the common denominator with all of her ” boyfriends” Taylor Lautner, Joe Jonas, John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal”????/

  • Tianna

    Oh god not again. Um am i the only one who thinks her hair looks like a rats nest. It looks like she didnt brush it. LOL She needs a new hair style. She needs a new everything. Dear Taylor change ur s.h.i.t up a little bit. Enough with the same (old for s.h.i.t ) song (literally) and dance.

  • Laki

    Another proof that the world has turned upside down.

  • glory

    She is way too popular for Jake. She will dump him soon for sure.


    I thought Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers and all the Disney starlets vowed to be and remain virgins until getting married …
    They all made a huge part of their fortune using the “True Love waits” marketing and some pushed the fraud as far as wearing a “purity ring”.
    Given the nudity hype about Jake’s latest film, many people will be embarrassed picturing Saint Taylor instead of Anne Hathaway LOL.
    American puritan hypocrisy anyone ?


    ” The 20-year-old country superstar was crowned the mag’s youngest-ever entertainer of the year “.

    Hellooooo !!!!!
    On the cover you can read ” WILL SMITH’s KIDS “.
    Willow is 10 and launched her hit song when she was still 9.
    The people who work for “Entertainment weekly” should thank God that stupidity doesn’t kill.
    They should learn how to count before pretending to be journalists.

  • LMAO !!! :D


    LOOOOOOL !!!!!
    Hahahaha :-D
    Thanx for the laugh dude.

  • Sadie

    and take Justin Bieber with you, please.

  • Kim

    She better start pacing herself with all these boyfriends. She is going to run out of men by the time she is 25! Maybe her next boyfriend can teach her how to sing!!

  • annah


    oh my god lol xD so funny.

  • Gab


  • rhonda

    entertainment industry is so lame, the girl can’t really sing

  • sweet nothing

    I wish she would cut her hair. It always looks so dry and frizzy. A shorter cut on her would be more becoming.

  • Poor Jake

    I think this girl is going to be his downfall. She will ruin him for sure.

  • eatyourheartout

    susana-cmon…lets see you do as well as she does then, if that is so easy? i will not be holding my breath.

    lol at kanye comments- he thought he found an easy target…boy was this guy wrong. she is slaughtering him in every possible sense of that word. And did so already before VMA-s.

    Congrats, Taylor! You deserve it! Nice, genuine girl writing her music and connecting through it to millions of people. Nothing wrong with that. You go, girl!

  • ellie


    Her eyebrow is ALWAYS ARCHED, that’s why. That’s her natural face. She always gives this coy, “who me?” face in ALL. OF. HER. PICTURES. She has her head tilted and her hand to her face or her hand on her hip and looking over her shoulder. I guess that’s preferable to the open-mouthed catching flies expression other female celebrities do though.

    I want to know what contract this girl signed where anyone who dares criticize princess Taylor is deemed a “hater.” Why aren’t we allowed to have our own opinion? If you criticize someone for being a bad actor, it doesn’t mean you’re jealous; you’re a spectator in the medium through which they entertain, so you’re allowed to be vocal. She sings pitchy and off-key at the CMAs (when her music is BARELY country), Grammys, et cetera, and everyone goes how she’s sold millions of records and it was just an off-performance, she couldn’t hear herself, she sings better in concerts, she had a cold. That’s crazy, because all the other artists that perform sang and were able to hear themselves with that same equipment.

    Because yeah, she sings and writes her own songs, but so did Alicia Keys and Alanis Morissette and they could actually sing.

    She sings a song about people being “Mean” and in that same album she tears another girl apart for stealing her ex-boyfriend from TWO YEARS AGO and being famous for sleeping around. Tell me, who’s the mean one now?

    And yes Taylor, you do confirm it when you literally spell it out in your “secret code” in the lyrics booklet.

    And bring on the criticism for me. I sipped the haterade and it was delicious.

  • nkenk

    No one likes this biitchhh except for hicks and little preteens

  • jd

    @nkenk: and gay jake

  • Emma

    but really??? really?!
    so she thinks her songs are mysterious! LOL!
    she thinks people are stupid to the level of not recognizing who the songs are about?
    if the song wasn’t revealing enough.. she and her camp did a very good job of making sure the word gets around!
    ok here you go Tay:
    -Joe Jonas: last kiss and probably if this was a movie (concept: why did you break up with me?)
    -Taylor Laurene: Back to December (concept:the director asked me to date you, but for the twilight fans.. if we love again i’ll love you right)
    -Camilla Belle: better than revenge (concept: it’s you’re fault.. he didn’t have any choice)
    -Bob Lefsetz: mean (concept: nobody should dare to criticize me)
    -Kanye West: innocent (concept: it’s actually about john mayer but it applies to you! )
    AAAAnd the winner with 5 and a half songs is: john mayer !!
    mine/ dear john/the story of us/superman/haunted/ours
    the half song is shared with Kanye (theme of these songs: i’m obsessed, but since i’m too stupid to understand how adults relationships work, I’ll attack you with a song)

  • Alleycat

    Cannot stand that over-rated Tonedeaf poptart. She cannot sing and is about as entertaining as paint drying on a wall.

  • Jokergurl

    I think EW goes by popularity and not talent, well once in a while they get it right like with Robert Downey Jr, one year but usually it’s whoever has been in the news the most, or has been on the most covers I think. She’s been to a lot of awards shows too MTV, VMA, Grammy’s, CMA’S, AMA’s so she’s been in the spotlight a ton.

  • jd

    @Jokergurl: and dont forget her much publicized showmance with jake

  • mumford&fans

    If you want to listen to someone who is young and writes music listen to Laura Marling she’s only 21 and is making REAL music. Listen to her song Rambling Man, New Romantic, Ghost, Cross Your Fingers and Blackberrystone. Her music is so much better than Taylor’s.

  • Sharon

    She has never confirmed who the songs are? Was she on crack during this interview or just lying? She told Ellen which song is about Joe Jonas. She has a lyric booklet that SPELLS out who each song is about. Next to Taylor Lautner she has “Tay” (what she always calls him). Dear John? Hello who has she dated with that name. Taylor Swift is now trying to spin reality.

  • Sharon

    On second thought maybe the lawyers for Joe, T-Laut, Mayer all contacted her and told her to knock it off. But she has admitted to everyone by now who the songs are about.

  • Celia

    WHHY?!!?! She’s so boring.
