Taylor Swift to Receive Taylor Swift Award

Taylor Swift to Receive Taylor Swift Award

Taylor Swift is being honored with a music award created in her name, and she’ll be the first person to win it.

The 26-year-old singer will receive the Taylor Swift Award at this year’s BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.) Pop Awards ceremony on May 10 in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Taylor Swift has transformed pop culture through her songs, artistry and indomitable spirit,” BMI Vice President of Writer/Publisher Relations Barbara Cane said in a statement.

She added, “She has had a profound impact, not only musically, but also through her personal conviction and commitment to create a standard that values and respects music for everyone. We felt it appropriate to award Taylor with an honor that is as unique and special as she is.”

BMI has awarded only one similar honor when it gave the Michael Jackson Award to Michael Jackson in 1990.

    seriously ? they created an awards in her name ?! WTF I’m done with her, she’s supported by the whole industry like she’s revolutionized music, she’s just a blond white girl singing pop then where’s the awards for beyonce, britney, madonna, rihanna (who by the way just tackled the record for most weeks at number 1 by the beattles)… seriously she’s just so random it hurts to see her praised that much

    Her cute version of negativity with celebrity fueds for lyrics and gossip girl gimmicks are cheap promotion tatcics. She really sells that catty popular blond girl using friends and personal relationships as social stock image well. I wonder if there any women in the industry who aren’t self indulgent histrionic types.

    So logically they think that after Michael Jackson, the most deserving person is Taylor Swift ? That’s a joke ?

    As if this girl’s ego wasn’t big enough…

    I dont agree with that comparison, however Taylor is already a legend! First artist to sell a million albums in one week, three albums in a row! Thats some MJ, Elvis, Beatles, type of stuff!
