Taylor Swift Teams Up with T-Pain

Taylor Swift Teams Up with T-Pain

Taylor Swift tries to pull off a gangster look in this new shot with rapper T-Pain at the rehearsals for the 2009 CMT Music Awards on Tuesday afternoon (June 9) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 19-year-old musician tweeted last night, teasing fans, “If I said I was in the studio with T-Pain, would you believe me?”

Taylor recently dished that she would love to duet with a rapper. Looks like more of her dreams are coming true!

As well as performing with T-Pain, Taylor is nominated for Female Video of the Year as well as Video of the Year for “Love Story.” The 2009 CMT Music Awards air Tuesday, June 16 @ 8PM ET/PT on CMT.

    i LOVE you Taylor!! :)

  • .

    Nice. It’s like Stevie Wonder and JB at the Grammys… a weird mix, but it’ll probably be awesome either way.

  • mai

    lol! no offense.. but she looks ridiculous..

  • Lauren

    hahah this is awesome :].
    she is awesome

  • Kayla

    My grandfather looks more gangsta and he’s from Oklahoma. Love T-Pain though!~!

  • samira

    I wonder how this is going to turn out. Taylor’s voice is meant for country songs, can’t imagine her trying to pull off rap. Good luck ?

  • G.


  • KAY


    and i repeat… what???!!

  • Jocelyñ~

    She always do rock! I love+love her! löl…..She is so CooL!!!! I mean it !

  • Kristy

    yesssss definately go vote for Taylor! This mashup with T-Pain is just a one time country collaboration and I think it will be cool. You can bet it’s rated G coming from Taylor and how seriously she takes being a ‘role model’ I’m sure the collaboration will have a great message for the young ones.

    Look at Tim McGraws collaboration with Nelly! ;)

    Go Taylor I hope you win them all, I voted for you and so has all my friends!

  • Carol

    She looks great she’s haven fun

  • me.

    lol. she looks like a completely different person

  • http://wedbell2000@yahoo.com Jane

    She is so beautiful inside and out.I am a woman of 60, who loves Taylor Swift..I cannot understand why some men think they could do better. Now that miley has broken up with Justin Gasteneau Maybe taylor and he could share some of the chemistry they had on the Love Story video…; )

  • alan

    Taylor needs to stick to country or rock! She did great with Def Leppard, but if she does rap, I`ll never buy another Taylor Swift cd! I think she`s so-o-o HOT , but this makes me sick and I won`t like her no more because rap is not music! If nobody is playing a REAL musical instrument, it`s NOT music. Sorry , but a 808 bass and scratching records is NOT playing music! Taylor , PLEASE don`t RUIN Your career.

  • jsinshda

    aww she looks gangsta! lol

  • anthony dee

    @miley: i aree they are both good so i think it should be a great performace

  • Mike

    @alan: Who cares what she does? She is trying to broaden her musical horizons. Rap is not going anywhere. What if she actually does a good job with it, and goes on to sell many more records? Who are you to criticize?

  • Bev

    Wow. This is a little too extreme. First Def Leppard… now T-Pain? What the crap is she doing? I loved her first stuff when it was COUNTRY… now she’s hanging out with the Jonas Brothers, and singing like Britney Spears. BRING BACK THE OLD TAYLOR SWIFT.

  • http://msn.com AU’rEE

    Taylor is a good singer, if she starts rapping she will not have as many fans and she won’t be as good

  • http://justjaredjr.buzznet.com Kaitlyn M.

    @britney: I agree with you I love Taylor but she dosen’t make a great gangster

  • http://justjaredjr.buzznet.com Kaitlyn M.

    She is a complet;y different girl if she changes into a gangster

  • http://justjaredjr.buzznet.com Kaitlyn M.

    She needs to stick to country or pop

  • twilightlover

    you are so wronge if you dont like taylor dont write about her do something about it@Kayla:

  • twilightlover

    you r rediculus G.@G.:

  • hahahaha

    key word: “tries”. fail taylor. epic fail.

  • ((:

    For one, I consider rap a kind of music, silly. I like it. If I can dance to it, it’s music to me ((:
    But you know, she’s a country star…I don’t like country, at all, and her involved in rap? Ehh, no. She is kinda hot though ((:
    Love Tilly. <3 xoxo
