Taylor Swift AP Entertainer Of The Year

taylor-swift-ap-entertainer-of-the-year


Taylor Swift has been voted Entertainer Of The Year by The Associated Press. Taylor was chosen by newspaper editors and broadcast producers across the country in a survey of AP members. She follows last year’s winner, Tina Fey, and 2007’s pick, Stephen Colbert. Tay said: ‘I am so honored and so excited. This was so unexpected, and I could not be more grateful.’

Swift said that several nights of her year, like hosting SNL, were ‘golden and shiny and I’ll remember forever:’ ‘That entire week was life-changing, honestly. It makes you feel so thankful to be a part of the music industry, but more than that, to me, ‘SNL’ is show business.’

On her future: ‘The second that I put out `Fearless,’ the moment that album came out and I was done with it, I started writing for my next album. I love to plan 20 steps ahead of myself, and it’s really fun competition game that I play with myself, trying to top what I’ve done last. For this next record, that’s all that I’ve been thinking about, that’s all that my mind has been fixated on for the last year, and it’s all that I’m going to be thinking about for this next year.’

    Puh-lease. I freaking love this girl, but there was no way this was unexpected for her. She’s already gotten so many awards this year, this shouldn’t have come as a surprise either. It’s really bugging me with all these things she’s getting. I agree when people say it makes her overrated :|

    Taylor’s last 2 albums have sold betetr than any of Miley’s though. And grammies aren’t about how much you sell…well at least they used to not be about that. They lost credibility in the last couple of years though…especially this year.

    I love how everyone is like ”I hate how she wins all these awards.” It is an honor. But do you think Taylor went up to the people and black mailed them to let her win an award? No. Okay. The people happen to choose her. Deal with it. It is not her fault stop blaming her.

    I’m really sick of her, like she’s a good song writer, but all her songs are either about breaking up, getting together, or how some guy should like her. Her songs are wayyy to boy obsessed and she always sounds really weird at live shows. She doesn’t deserve this award, Lady Gaga is original, a bit odd, but at least she is actually a really good singer and isn’t just the same thing over and over again.

    thats not funny, its the truth. she sucks at singing. she is the most immature human being ever. she acts like if a guy breaks up with her that he is the worst guy in the world. get over yourself taylor. you suck.

    Duh. Taylor wrote with co writers in 7 songs. The other 6 she wrote on her own. Of course she is going to thank them if she wins white horse, breathe, you belong with me or her album.

  • purplekoolaid

    Seriously?? I can’t wait until 2010 so I don’t have to see Taylor Swift’s face plastered everywhere. She is a bad singer! Her songwriting is good and catchy but she sings as good as I do (hint: I sing horribly, lol). I hope she thanks Kanye and Joe Jonas every night before she goes to sleep cause they are the only reasons so many people care about her.

    I hate Lady Gaga, but I do recognize she is talented. She is a great singer and a wonderful pianist, but her songs are beyond awful imo. And she just tries way too hard to be “unique.” I saw a performance of her singing acoustically and playing piano and it was amazing. I wish she would make music like that instead of just talking about being in the club/trying to get a man all the time and stop being such an attention whore.

    Okay listen. Taylor had #1 album before Kanye ruined her speech. Do you think Taylor wanted Kanye to ruin her speech? Did you see the look on her face? And how she doesn’t like talking about it and she cried right after. And about Joe. Taylor Swift was a big country star before she met Joe. She sold 3 million on her first album. She was big but not everyone knew with her. Some people did not many. Joe did not get her famous, the paparazzi did. And the gossip sites. Without the paparazzi no one would be famous. I know they like to make rumors but it does help people to be more aware of the new comer

  • pft.

    oh goodness. lol. ok. wasnt arguing with you. my point was i dont see the issue in having heavily relationship based music, not how many relationship-based songs she does or does not have which is why i am not attempting to ‘back up my claims.’

    Lucas and her broke up but we didnt hear a peep out of her. The fact is that she probably pissed cause he hardly went out in public with her and broke up with her over the phone for another girl then went public with her.
    So she went mad like any other girl would.
    Also joe jonas was her first showbiz boyfriend

    Taylor you need to go away for a while because frankly I and many others are SICK of you and you music and you face being shoved in our faces evey two seconds. How she became this big is beyond me (aside from the jonas/kanye inncident) and I know it might sound like I am making up excuses as to why she is annoying and famous..but you can’t deny it’s not true.
    She seems like a nice girl but she became so overrated so fast.

    —-

    people tend to say this alot about her music. about her music being based very much on relationships. but my question is, whats your point? for one, not all of her songs are based on relationships but what would it matter. go listen to any given alicia keys cd. all her albums are very much relationship/breakup based. and all of them are kickass (element of freedom is amazing by the way). i just dont get what the point of saying that is.

  • SJS

    What’s with the attitude? I didn’t even insult her. I just made mention of the fact that i’ve never heard her thank or even mention her co-writers. And she has won awards for her album/ songs before hasn’t she? You can get defensive as a fan, and I can get defensive as a songwriter. If I co-wrote with a famous artist & they always said “I wrote this song about…” and never mentioned my contribution, i’d be pretty upset. If she thanks them, then bravo. I’ll be happy. But she’s had over a year to mention them. Has she? Please give me a link to an interview if she has. I’m not trying to be an ass, but as someone who writes songs it bugs me.

  • Anonymous

    I hope she goes back to songs like tim mcgraw and our song.. they were more country she gone mostly into pop now.
    Just dont diss her and say she has no talent when its clear she has.
    Its not her fault shes winning theese awards and stuff,, all shes doing is producing her own music like her dream is to and then shes getting all theese awards for it.
    I give taylor credit cause all of this fame has hit her and shes still a really nice person she so grounded its unbelieveble. Even famous people who have met her have said how down to earth she is.

    And she wont go down in 2010 she will probably bring more albums out and still do well but another artist will come and be the next big thing… she will end up like beyonce i think.. she will have her big moment in her carrer (now) then people will notice her and still buy her albums and stuff its just she wont be AS big but shhe will still be big.. shes very classy and grounded and because of that shes got a good future ahead of her.
    Im tryin to get into music and looking upto her just drives me to want to wake up and try harder every day.. now thats a talent to do that.

    Just leave her alone she hasnt done anything too you personally your just wasting your time cause all your horrible comments are no skin off her apple.

    And no she isnt famous cause of kanye and DEFFENTLY not joe jonas. She didnt win the damn vma cause of kanye did she.. her album and music was doing terrfic before them both.
    Shes done absolutley nothing to you haters and some of the things you say about her is fucking disrespctful even i wouldnt say that about someone who i knew and didnt like.

    Just face the fact shes doing well.

  • Jessi

    because they are all SOOOO similar, a lot of artists write about that stuff, not so much about the “this guy should be with me”, but they are different and don’t all sound the same. to me taylor just sounds the same all the time. And she has had two albums and I can only think of one, maybe two songs that arent about relationships with guys.

  • SJS

    I agree that a lot of her songs sound the same, but in all honesty most artists write about love/relationships. The difference is being able to write about it from different angles. She has ALOT of break up songs about a guy doing her wrong, but she also has some from different perspectives. Her love songs tend to be better & from more than one angle, as opposed to her break-up songs.

  • Aimee

    im sorry i love taylor and all but its kind of annoying how she wins everything i betcha she likes knows she going to win a grammy and she’s chuckling(sp?) it up w/ her friends and family … it will be funny to see her face if she didnt win anything but thats just me

  • Stewie Griffin

    HA

  • online payday loans

    muy buena su informacion

  • pft.

    well not all her songs are about ‘this guy should be with me.’ thats one single, thats one perspective, thats one take on things. not all her songs have that one perspective. the same way, not all her songs are about relationships (yes, more then two). but like i said, alicia keys has 4 albums now and ALL four of her albums are pretty solely based on love/relationships/breakups. thats just the kind of artist she is and i love her for it. having very relationship-based music doesnt have to be a weakness; it is just an artists style.

    Taylor Swift is cute and seems but I was disappointed that someone who can’t carry a tune in a live performance would be awarded Entertainer of the year. She must spend a lot of time mixing on her recordings because they are good but everytime I hear her sing live she sounds off key. Even allowing her on the stage with Carrie and Reba was offensive

  • Anonymous

    I grew a little tired of the “Taylor show” at the CMA Awards. Yes, she is talented and pretty and what Kanye West did was horrible but enough. Wynonna Judd did not diss her — she is too young to win the Entertainer of the Year award. Let her prove herself some more — let’s see if she has true staying power like Dolly or Reba.

  • SJS

    I’d have to disagree. No one thinks anyone on Disney is worth shit(minus the fans) simply because they are with Disney.

    I heard of Miley because of Disney. I knew JB before Miley because of hearing Burnin’ Up on the radio. I heard of Demi, Selena, Aly & AJ, AND Taylor because of JB.

    But this isn’t about any of those people or Disney. As a fan of a lot of Taylor’s music, I can say congrats to her. I am terribly, terribly sick of media/award shows brown-nosing her though. It’s not her fault, but it is bullshit. This is about money to them. It’s why they throw her name around & insert her into everything possible. Cause she sells. End of story. They did it with Britney Spears back in 2000 to 2002. Except they atleast recognized that she didn’t create her own music. Taylor does write hers, though with the aid of co-writers who i’ve never heard her mention.

    If she wins at the Grammys (which she will), she better thank the people who helped her write all her songs.
