Taylor Swift: Billboard's Woman of the Year!

Taylor Swift is red hot at Billboard’s Sixth Annual Women in Music Awards held at Capitale on Friday (December 2) in New York City.

The 21-year-old musician, in an Oscar de la Renta dress, Prada shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels, was honored with Billboard‘s Woman of the Year award! After accepting the award, Taylor was interviewed by Katie Couric.

“For me, when Faith Hill performed on an awards show, everything mattered – everything she said, did, wore, I tried to copy it. That’s what little girls do, so there is a big responsibility and I take it very seriously,” Taylor told Billboard about her responsibility to be a good role model.

So sad. Shouldn’t the award go to someone who can actually sing?

@LisaLipps:

LadyGaga can’t sing, Taylor actually deserves the cover so stew on that fact. :)

@LisaLipps No-sense haters like you make me want to shake my head at some people’s stupidity and ignorance. Billboard Woman of the Year has NOTHING to do with vocals and everything to do with commercial and critical success, which Taylor has, without a shadow of a doubt, achevied. (Her Speak Now album sold over a million copies in its first week alone, and her world tour has grosses of 100+ million. Critics have called her songwriting mature beyond her years and complimented her diverse range of music, everything from bluegrass country to pop rock.) Even if it did have to do with vocal ability, she’d still deserve it because she’s a good singer. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have been offered a record deal in the first place or sold out Madison Square Garden, now would she?

Haters gonna hate! Taylor had a fabulous year. Her wide ranging tour proves it. She was the only female that sold out NFL stadiums this year.

# 6

i really don’t like her new hair. :(

# 7

Haters save the drama for your mama. lets face the truth Britney Lip Syncs! Just like Gaga is an attention *****, Riri has a big forehead and of course Taylor Swift might not be the best singer but she deserve all the awards she got. PUT THAT IN YOUR DIARY! xx

I read Jake slept with her last month

He’s still keeping it around

# 9

She earned it. Did anybody read the story? She donated more than a million to charities this year alone+ her smash tour.

Lovely woman. :)

@Kathy:
Very funny post. You made me laugh. I’m not hating, just stating the obvious. There are a lot of tone death teens buying her crap. She is not a country artist either. She is a marketing machine, plain and simple.

@ace11: No way Jake is going to touch that again. Get Real

Don’t think he ever touched it! LOL! That’s why he dumped her.

@LisaLipps Stating the obvious how? You’re biased, and you have a twisted view as well as, clearly, something against teenage girls. Ever heard Taylor Swift on tour? At the Rockefeller Center? On the Paul O’Grady show? At CMA Music Festival? Yeah, take a look at that and tell me again she’s crap and “not a country artist”.

The Kardashians are marketing machines. Britney Spears, Disney Channel “singer/actresses”, Rebecca Black & co. get everything handed to them on a silver platter. Taylor Swift? Not a chance…writes her own songs, plays half a dozen instruments, produces her own shows, turned down a record deal from RCA Records at age 11 because they wouldn’t let her write her own lyrics. You can’t get more raw and real than that.

@LisaLipps Katy Perry,Britney Spears,Selena Gomez can’t sing but they always get attention and awards.So if you DON’T like Taylor Swift then DON’T listen to her nobody is forcing you. By the way Taylor ROCKS is one of the most UNIQUE singers ( I mean she doesn’t get naked to be famous or write sex songs) and she’s talented,too. She hasn’t the MOST amazing voice (Adele) but with practice it will get even better. Watch all her lives and you’ll see what I mean. Taylor has a talent that no one has it get that in your MIND.

I fell in love with country music becoz of Taylor Swift. Her songs had been there for me through heartbreaks and happy days. She proved that simple image can still won the hreats of many. Every song is like a movie or a book,you can picture it. Although she doesn’t have the most strong or beautiful voice like many pple on American Idol, X Factor etc etc..she sings from the heart and thats what maters mst to me. I will always adore and love Taylor Swift. No matter what!
