Wow she isn’t wearing all that makeup and hairspray for once. Refreshing. She looks cute.

# 3

@owlathena: really? cuz i think she looks like **** without makeup

# 5

Seeing her in 10 days in Paris <3

# 7

I love Taylor, but what is up with her and her ponytail. It seems that in the past couple of months she just discovered this hairstyle and she is wearing it out. If she is going to have her hair pulled up, she should also push her bangs up into the hairstyle also. These curling ironed curls on the side of her face make her look like she is two years old.
I wish she would leave her hair down and curly. It gives her sexier and older look.

Taylor looks better when she is not wearing the whole makeup,especially the red lipstick which makes her look older than her real age!

# 9

Am i the only one that think’s she looks like an angel? idk it’s weird

I wonder if Jakey will be in the audience to support her.

I just realized that these photos have been reversed and it is a picture of Bob Dyllan with Dyllan written across the front of her shirt.

she is obsessed with John Mayer he is a big suporter of Bob Dylan and this is a shout out to him maybe he sees how interesting she is and he’s taking her back.Ha!all that album is about him even the extra songs .Desperate much.stalker !she should be honored for him giving her even a glance…i get why he run like crazy .i know i would.

Gillette stadium baby!!!!! taylor were so excited!!!!! omg and randy montana is there! yes!

@vivienne: lol are you high or something lol she’s a fan of dylan way way before mayer…get your facts straight

@vivienne #12 Are you crazy. You make your assumptions from her wearing a simple t-shirt. I agree with #14, you must be high. Taylor is a huge fan of Dylan, Bono, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springstein (the greats). She really respects them and has said numerous times that she is a fan of all of their music.

Taylor is wearing a Lloyd Hoffman photography t-shirt with Bob Dylan playing the harmonica. My brother has that shirt. He bought it when he was in LA a while ago. I am really jealous of him now. She looks adorable. Love her!!

I seriously hope she is not dating Chord Overstreet. I just realized that he looks like a younger version of Gary Busey. EWWW! He is also a jerk and a total womanizer.

Oh how ’bout that. All her opening acts are boys. She probably picked them all based on their looks.

Maybe Taylor has discovered Dylan and Bono, etc. but the fact is, Jon Mayer was definitely there first. He’s been performing & playing music a lot longer than she has. He’s older than Taylor. Plus, his music is a lot more of a tribute to Dylan’s stuff than hers ever could be.

All Taylor does is play Hallmark greeting card verses to little jingles about being in love and being cheated on, and heartbreak and “Ooohhheee I want you back, etc.” Jon Mayer ‘s music has way more substance. Just like Bob Dylan.

It’s typical tho, she wears a silly T-shirt and her fans (Taylorbots) think she has substance. But then, most of her fans are shallow.

If Danny Gokey is any indication, Taylor found people who were cheap to hire, and they’re boring. Gokey lost American Idol the year Chris Allen won. I heard her concerts are borrrr-ing!

Suri Cruise is more mature than her.

I thought her opener was that one band…

there is a truth about Mayer infatuation he said in an old interview that if there is a guy/actor to play his life in a movie it would be Jake Gyllenhall because they are ambiguous.and i think she did it as a revange not necessary intentionally but maybe she was vulnerable and lost they both have an adventurous character,age,talent and soulful eyes so i hope it was not concioussley- but we all know she loves revange.she got burned out maybe Jake sought she was still in love with Mayer.she should fight for him if she wants him back.i think he is amaizing and probably the love of her life

@sarabeth: LOL calm down… before Mayer she’s already a fan of Dylan, tom petty, Bruce and many more… she said that in numerous interviews… google it! she has her records in vinyl… geez she has substance since she started her career in 05 probably more mature than you’ll ever be…, and sorry if her concerts are boring and then why her concerts are selling out in minutes????? just sayin’… stop hating her, you don’t know her.

@JEN: wrong. she picked them because they’re great live and have amazing songs. clearly, you know nothing about country. I feel sorry for you. with Taylor, needtobreathe and them, it’s gonna be brilliant.

eatyourheartout @ 03/07/2011 at 7:51 am

Taylor is an incredible charmer in her concerts. She has the X-factor. You can`t force people to go crazy for your tour tickets. She clearly has something to offer.
