    I had no idea there were so many fourteen year olds in the world! Or so many people with really bad taste. The problem is she is shoved in our faces like we are supposed to care or to like her and feel like we are out of step if we don.t That sucks!

    All I can hope is that she goes the way of the Jonas brothers group. They were smokin hot for a few years…then nothing. No one cared. She’s pulling in about $40million a year. Yes. She is. So maybe she’ll go away.

    I don’t know about top selling, but she’s certainly on the top run for sl.uttiest celeb. I mean at just 21, how many boyfriends has she had? Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, and counting. The girl is working the field. I’m not fooled by the cherubic face and curls, she’s a ho.e, no better than Miley Cyrus, Rhianna, or all the other sk.anks out there.

    People love to hate on Taylor swift.. Music died when taylor came to the picture? Are you kidding me? Where were you during the Madonna/Britney /Vanilla ice/ (to mention a few) reign. The US population can accommodate many artists, no need to bring her down. Her music is not my cup of tea but her sales shows that people aka fans love her. Most of you that hate Taylor are older than her yet you’ve not achieved a fraction of her success. It’s not her fault that her fans love her and support her career.

    DL Says:

    She is a good role model for young girls and writes age appropriate songs, but she cannot sing whatsoever. Out of all the talent that walks into her record label, how did they honestly say she has a great voice over all those other people?

    @Gui: Add also the most annoying and most repetitive to gain sales. I would be happy for her success if she at least had a tone and wrote things besides finding her prince charming or getting dumped or hurt.

    I think Taylor needs to send Kanye a HUGE thank you card for this one.

    What has Taylor Swift done to any of you guys. You people are just plain MEAN!!! I can tell you one thing for sure she is smiling all the way to the bank. And if you do the math, her true fans are buying her music. There is enough pain in the world–and your hateful words regarding Tayloy Swift is unnecessary and unwarranted. How many guys have you dated in the past?

    pickles Says:

    @laverdadduele: Actually, I don’t think so. I don’t think she ever had or really wants a real relationship. I think she wants an “Us Magazine “relationship” that she can live out in the Tabloids and a guy she can parade around with on red carpets.

    All those lies about diamond bracelets and private jets! Rock stars like bling. But it was all a lie. It never happened. Her fan sites were spamming twitter every day with new lies and Gossip Cop was exposing them. Check out Gossip Cop. J

    ake’s rep even sent out a direct denial. I think that’s what they meant when they said he was sick of all the publicity. He dated Reese for three years, but we never heard about it for the first 6 months or so. Taylor only lives her life on stage. Sad. That’s why none of her relationships last very long. Guys see thru all that, and they don’t like being pipushed or steamrolled.

    She is not a good singer and I always turn off or change channel whenever I hear her voice. Why people supporting such a singer

    Mashly Says:

    Not sure why she is selling so much because her songs are pretty immature….I dont hate her, I think she is sweet but she is talentless…cant sing live…sorry, thats the truth. She aint no Celine Dion or Mariah C…..the only ppl I could think of buying her cds are little white kids….

    zoz Says:

    Think about it. Digital music has only been popular for the last 5 years. Same time Taylor has been around …her teen popularity fan base has come up. They don’t care about talent just what they can sell. Sell bitter 14 yr olds whining cause some dude that probably has an STD doesn’t want them.

    @Mimi: i totaly agree with you i mean she may not have the best voice evr but it’s obviouse that her fans love her and that she is successful so why can’t people just back off it’s not like she’s turning into another brittany spears or lindsay lohan so thank you for being one of the few who stuck up for her and to all the others eff off you have nothing better to do than sit behind a computer and talk **** :) <3
