    country music needs to go away … if from a very ignorant racist group of white people. I really have nothing against taylor swift as a person other than she keeps trying to date guys that are in the hollywood closet.

    Right now don’t believe “what the world said” if its coming from any sort of American media. Because American media can be manipulated for any sort of self Aggrandizing agenda . For example my son’s French friend said that Lady Gaga is not really that famous or well liked in France. As for Taylor’s overrated talent, we’ll always have her Stevie Nick duet, with her using a real microphone.

    well critics beg to differ dear darla…and i bet their view on things matters more, as they are probably not 14. and i kinda see their point. who else in the mainstream pop music industry can create so universally relatable songs besides taylor? noone.

    I don’t know why people love to hate taylor. she’s doing her thing and doing it without ever changing her self and morals.
    the music industry died because of her? she’s a who**? she’s talentless?? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? she’s a songwriter, producer, can play instruments, create her own tour, basically just running her career by herself.

    sorry but you can hate her if you can accomplished at least half of what she accomplished in just 21 years of age.

    not much of a fan but i know she’s the real deal and super talented. that with great love and appreciation to her fans.

    why is this squinty eyed ***** everywhere?

    @pickles: That’s because the masses are mindless minions who buy what they are told to buy and wear what they are told to wear and haven’t had an original thought in their quitodian little heads. Marketing has figured this out and now has a plan to destroy The Arts through the sheer force of publicity and capitalism.
    Those who matter, who will change the world, are independent thinkers who judge based on their own values and the value of the work itself, devoid of influence. If these people are unable to make a difference, then all is lost.
    Personally I’m moving to Europe as soon as possible. They have a long, rich history in the Arts, and their work is impressively superior to anything here (perhaps because they aren’t all greedy capitalists.)

    I don’t get her appeal in “my times” we had people like Britney Spears ,Christina Aguilera hell even Jessica Simpson,Ashley Simpson and Mandy Moore this mediocre chick makes me miss them and those times sad to see what has come of music today and what it takes to be a “star” this girl can not
    2. Perform (to save her life)
    3.Write decent music that people beyond 13 can relate to
    4.Has no charisma whatsoever

    Well, we now know that the world of music has gone downhill. When someone that has no singing ability is the most played artist of 2010 and the biggest selling digital artist of all time, we know we have a problem. Where’s the talent nowadays?! ANYONE could be a singer with the autotune stuff. We need talent, we need to show all of these teenage girls out here that Taylor has no talent! Have you heard her sing live, girls? Yeah, she does suck! And as much as you and Taylor like to believe she’s some fairytale princess… she’s not. Listen to some real music, please. Listen to someone who can go onstage and deliver the song just as it sounds on the radio. This is coming from a fourteen year old girl that is fed up with Taylor getting praised for all these years. I know good music, now why can’t the other teenage girls out here? Listen to the legends… they’ll show you real music.

    wow you people are really arrogant. I guess thats what I would find at a gossip site… self-centred hate spreaders…
    Youre right… there aint that many 14 year olds in the world.. ye t she has become the top artist of the year… guess she is just talented.

    taylor is making music and the world a better place.
    you just cant bear it, can you?

    @: how so? Shes a great writer and has a nice voice. Shes a hell of a lot better than Lady Gaga who would be nowhere without this crazy image(if her first album tells us anything) and Katy Perry who cant sing to save her life. Shes an incredible artist. Get over it.
