Naomi Judd ‘Taylor’s A Dazzling Performer’

taylor-swift-dazzling


Naomi Judd, who’s daughter Winona said Taylor Swift had ‘too much too soon‘ @ the CMAs, came to Tay’s defense. She told E! Online: ‘Remember the puzzles, ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’  You search for faults, ignoring the overall picture. Not only sings well enough to strike a chord with a huge audience.. she writes, dances, acts, and is a dazzling performer.

Taylor is the best-dressed young female artist today, in league with Hollywood’s most glamorous stars. When I met her, I was impressed by her sincere transparent niceness. Taylor’s a lovely young lady.. Smarts, manners,

..and class.. If there’s an award for being the best role model for her generation, I’d like to be the one to give it to Taylor Swift.. Having sung many times at the Grammys, I can tell you that the stress and anxiety of performing in front of the world’s top artists in every genre of music is tortuous for even the most seasoned singer.’

    I can only imagine what an imbecile like Scott Borchetta has been telling her all these years. It’s fine if your parents are telling you that you can sing when you can’t. But a major record label? That is skewed. She honestly cannot sing at all. There’s no tone, no pitch, no vibrato, no support, nothing at all.

  • (:

    I hate when people say so and so deserved an award :| obviously the people who decided DISAGREE. Taylor deserves every one of her awards, couldn’t think of a nicer person for them to go to<3.

    Did you know that Taylor was one of the first at Big Machine Records? And clearly Scott thought Taylor is talented and he was right.

    His remarks in defense of her showed a tremendous lack of faith in her talent. Emotional singer? Why even defend it if he thought there was nothing wrong with the performance?

  • callmelegs

    What the hell?

    it makes you a good singer when you admit you can’t sing.

    That doesn’t change the fact if you can or can’t sing.Have you seen her interviews (including one from 06,07) She said herself she can’t believe it.Most of her awards she has won are fan voted.

    Role model my ass. What can kids learn from her, that you can sell albums even if you can’t sing if you’re daddy is rich and gets you a record deal?

    Uh, Scott Borchetta was pretty happy to have 2 million dollars in his pocket courtesy of Scott Swift to get his label off the ground.

    i love taylor and her music.
    but where did you hear that her dad was rich and got her a record deal?

    Is there any proof that her father did that besides hearsay? Because it really would explain how she managed to get a record deal given the fact that she’s tone deaf. Her concerts are auto tuned, that’s why she sounds horrible at awards and good at concerts.

    I can understand that old grandmas like her dresses, they probably wore the same 40 years ago.

    I think a good role model knows when she is doing the right thing and when she earns things.
    Taylor takes awards she does not deserve and never looks back.
    She was up against the best country artist and she took the award as if she actually stands a chance againts them.
    Reba, George and Miranda Lambert they are allway too classy to trash her, but They all deserve that award way more than Taylor would ever do.
    Plus if she can’t sing, which she can’t There are many great role models who can sing.
    Miranda Lambert is an amazing performer and her mperformances transmit to those who want to hear her.
    She is under rated because of trashy performers like Taylor.

    Her dad has money but his not rich as most people.Taylor worked hard to get to where she is now.Her father helped her by supporting,believing in her and moving for her.Thats all he did.I just have to add one thing,the bigger a person gets the more critsim (sp?) that person gets.

    I don’t think she is the best role model of this generation shes not real a roll model is a real person and a real person makes mistakes and will say they did just like miley and demi miley did them pictures and admit it was a mistake demi admits what she made mistakes and she don’t get it its ok to drink its ok to go to a club just don’t get wasted since that’s the thing that makes you a bad role model plus she need a better voice to win what she won she may have wanted a record deal and after 3-4 years got one but that was because of her songs that she writes if you love singing then sing in your room write give and share. ill always have the people with mistakes as my role models i hope people read and think about the fact that’s it is ok to make the mistakes and be honest about it not covert it up with a fake smile everyday and have a lardy dardy life.

    What does her singing have to do with being a role model? That is what I thought. And seriously the people who vote her clearly thought she deserved it, the award show is based on their decision not ours. So stop saying ”she didn’t deserve it” because they picked the winners not you and they thought so. And you complaining is not going to do anything, Taylor won those awards and that is final.

    Her acting is stiff and since when can she dance? But somehow people overlook her poor voice and like her. I don’t get it. But at least she isn’t smoking and drinking and getting tatoos.

    Being a role model has nothing to do with talent or lack thereof. If someone is a good role model, fine, give them an award for that, don’t give them a Grammy if they’re tone deaf.

  • callmelegs

    I can tell you haven’t done any reach on Taylor,haven’t watched old interviews of her in 06 and 07 and probaly 08 . She said that her songs she writes are to personal to have other peole sing them.

    You haven’t seen her acting for more then an hour,her CSI parts in total are like 30 minutes or less.Just wait to see V-day and then post your comments on her acting skills.Thats what I plan to do so I don’t look like a jackass.

    he was nominated for top country artist, at the grammy’s, and it makes you a good singer when you admit you can’t sing.
    She keeps lying to herself if she honestly believes she deserves awards such as “Top Female VOCALIST of the year”

    She is suppose to be a singer, a real good rolemodel would admit to be not a really well singer, Tatylor just takes and never seems to regret taking an award that was meant for someone else.

  • Anonymous

    Totally agree. I’ve met Taylor 3 times-once before she was really famous-all of which she was the sweetest person ever. There was no ‘fakeness’ about her. The last time I met her was in June, and her shows are the most incredible things ever. I’ve heard her sing live plenty of times, and she never sounds like she does on award shows. She is much better in a concert. That’s where she’s comfortable. Everyone has an off performance. I’ll admit, she doesn’t have much of a ‘powerful’ vocal range, but she does have a powerful ‘voice’ to be able to reach out to so many people and be such a good influence.

  • Anonymous

    Well that’s all fine and dandy but the fact remains that she can’t sing, and this, she shouldn’t be winning awards for vocals.

  • woohooitsapartyy

    true true, see how many people are drinking, smoking drugging it up, taylors not. shes a role model and she loves it and knows it :)
    and she doesnt seem to me like shes pretending to be someone else, she loves doing what she does, whether or not I agree with her staying in and baking on a saturday night, thats who she is. she’s classy and fabulous, and that is something all women should be :)

    she’s a skilled songwriter and a truly amazing person.

    I wouldn’t go as far as to say she’s the best role model of our generation.
    But she’s been successful, and she really loves what she’s doing so, kudos. :]

    It all comes down to your values, honesty makes a person, if she can’t be honest to herself, then she is not being honest to anyone else.
    Honesty starts with one self.
    I know I am a crappy singer, even if my friends say I am not, just because someone tell you ” oh you have a nice voice” it does not mean you should record an album.

    good role model ?
    Hmm maybe in America where she is most famous I guess.

    One person would say ”Taylor Swift can’t sing for shit” then another person would say ”Taylor Swift singing rules.” There are always two sides. You can either love or hate it. Not everyone is going to agree.

    Tone is subjective. Pitch is not. If you can’t sing on key live, you can’t sing.

    did Taylor Swift really brake up with Taylor luatner if that’s how u spell his last name

  • purplekoolaid

    the point is taylors a SINGER! not a professional role model. i actually have met taylor and agree that she is a nice persopn, but niceness doesn’t = talent.

    she sings like an amateur at a middle school talent show. shes not awful by any means but not good enough to be a professional, grammy-award winning singer. she is talented at writing catchy songs for sure, but she cant sing. alot of her success is because of her goody-goody image instead of actual talent. I’m all for good girls and being a role model, but at the end of the day, you also need some talent to back it up.

    Anyone with working ears knows she was off key. The look on Stevie Nick’s face says it all. The fact that Taylor was blissfully unaware of it shows me that she has a tin ear. She can’t hear what she’s singing.

    Very compelling argument. I’m sorry but she cannot sing. All her live performances are off key. It’s not nerves, it’s lack of auto tune.
