taylorswiftbillboard


Lady Gaga has been named Billboard’s Artist Of The Year 2010. Taylor Swift, who won in 2009, came in a close second. Swift has two albums in the top 10 of the year-end Billboard 200 tally, the first time an artist has done this since 1992 [Garth Brooks]. Ke$ha was named Top New Artist of 2010.

    You may not like Lady Gaga or Taylor Swift, but at least they write their own songs. Taylor’s new album came out a month ago and her other album has been out since late 2008, and she’s on #2 spot, that shows alot about her influence in the industry.

    AN ARTIST: IS SOMEONE WHO CAN WRITE MUSIC ON THE SPOT AND DOESN’T NEED HELP.

    I think Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift are the only ones in the industry who could pull that off! Well, at least in pop music. Taylor wrote an entire album by herself!

    JUSTIN IS NO ARTIST BUT HE CAN SING..

    Sorry, but Justin isn’t that great of a singer. When he first came out, he was pretty decent. But now he just lip syncs and if he does sing live, his voice cracks to no end. Damn you puberty….

  • xoangelaa

    I’m sorry but Taylor swift cannot sing. she just has a good agent.

    okay you sound fucking retarded. last time i checked, no “agent” was in the store making me buy her CD.
    check yourself bitch, and go listen to your lil jo bros lol.

    wow.

    If anything, Bieber should have one that title.
    ———
    Justin’s first album “My World” came out in November of 2009, so technically he can’t be considered best new artist of 2010. People like party auto-tuned music these days, and that’s what she does.

    Haha um wow. do you know what an agent does? An agent pushes and advertises her on TV itunes youtube facebook and all the other websites. and people automatically start to like her because she’s everywhere.
    And the jonas brothers are fucking hot. Taylor looks like a monkey.

    ————-
    Of course she isn’t the first to write those type of songs! But she is one of few not only write thier own songs, but make their music relatable to their audience. Which is the main appeal to Taylor. I will admit that I wish Taylor would have a song or two about something else, her only singing love songs is annoying me; but that’s her MO. But saying that she is not original just because she writes songs about a common subject is silly. John Lennon wasn’t first to sing about love and peace, was he not orginal?

    True. but i just think its strange that people are giving Taylor so much credit when plenty of other singers are better then her and she’s the one getting the awards. The award shows are the ones that called her original. i just disagree.

    i only know one song by kesha (tik tok) but its alright. its catchy and its good for dancing and hitting the gym (which i do regularly)… why does everyone act as if they understand about music?? or are u guys just copying “expert’s” s opinions on what’s good and what’s not.

  • StreetsOfGold

    I have seen both Taylor and lady gaga in concert and I think lady gaga has way more talent than Taylor. Sure Taylor has cute songs and an AMAZING voice but gaga has SO much fucking talent and she’s way better live than in her recorded music. Congratulations Lady gaga!!!

    And plus, I ain’t gay but gagas gotta sexy body;)

  • Anonymous

    I know this is random, & I’m not even a big demi fan etheir, but I garuntee you that if taylor came out with the album here we go again, it would get so many honors & awards. Honestly Demi music is so beautiful, she seriously needs more credit. That’s I think demi needs to get out of disney. She doesn’t need them, & would be taken way more serious. I don’t think slot of people even know what Demi is capable of

  • gabby xo

    YAAYYY TAYLOR! YOU DESERVE IT 100% ! and to all the haters, get over it, shes amazing :)

  • xoangelaa

    I agree 120%!!! Demi doesn’t get halfff the credit she deserves. she definitely needs to drop disney AND her stupidass Manager… cough Mr Jonas.

  • getouttamyway

  • xSweetCandyxx

    I’m glad Lady Gaga won the award but Ke$ha seriously??She doesn’t have any talent and her music is stupid…..

    Oh darn, no bieber as best! Finally, something that has a brain. I just don’t get the bieber hype. I can’t stand his voice or the way he acts in interviews . Sorry to say, but the music industry is really not full of talented people anymore. People can’t sing live and so much music is autotuned, has poor lyrics and just plainly stinks IMO. There are talented artist out there, but they stay hidden behind the new genre of music.

    I like Tay and I enjoy her music, but then I felt she was becoming way way overrated, & truthfuly i was getting anoyed she was winning every award & getting every top honoud.It felt like no matter what artist came out, & deserved just as much appretation & those awards she wAs gonna win ether way. It’s kind of like, man let other people have there shine too, but I know it’s not her fault tho. I did watch a documentary on her yesterday tho, & I did gain respect for her, & realized that everything she has in her life now she haz worked hard for.

    shes popular because people like her music. somebodys bitter.

  • paparazzigirl

    Allot of people hate her music and everyones entitled to they’re opinion :P

  • paparazzigirl

    can someone please explain to me how her new album sold over a million records in a week? How can people be so deaf (and blind?) cant they hear that her songs are about one thing: love. i have looked up all? the songs to the lyrics. its all same, just written differently. And the guitar playing is 2 simple (for a “professional”), a begginer guitarists can play them. and she calls herself country? she’s not!

    todays music really kills me. and everyone who know what music is supposed to sound like.
