    I think it’s kinda dumb cause they count her as Country AND Pop. Really..who wants to see another awards show where everyone feels sorry for taylor swift cause she didn’t get to say all her thank yous by now? i don’t mind hearing her songs at a friend’s house, but i think it is kinda silly she is getting all this recognition when her songs are filled with silly lyrics that obviously a teenage girl wrote. short skirts..t-shirts…high heals.. sneakers.. yada yada yada

    @hun98 Your judging her writing talents on one song. Taylor Swift is amazing. Listen to White Horse, Breathe, Fearless, Fifteen. Clearly it shows her incredible skills at music writing. Not to mention she wouldn’t have the success she is experiencing now if she was so “silly”! Also you seem to base her success on the Kanye drama. Er wrong again. Taylor Swift is the biggest selling artist of 2009 (so far) with like 3.1 million copies of her sophomore album Fearless sold. This was all before the Kanye interruption at the VMA’s too. In a business full of talentless hot mess (Britney Spears) the excessive use of auto-tune and mediocre song lyrics, Swift stands out as one of the most versatile and genuinely talented artists of the generation. Plus, she’s incredibly nice as a person too. Please consider this in the future before leaving another incredibly naive comment.

    Actually she is kind of both in some ways. Her songs aren’t stupid, people can relate to them. She is an amazing song-writer and musician. She dereves them all! You Belong With me is the best song ever! Don’t diss it!

  • ROSA

    SO HAPPY FOR TAYLOR SHE DESERVES.

  • Michael

    Whitney Houston should have been nominated, if fellow ’80s legend Michael Jackson gets five nods! Her new album is one of the best this year!

  • Lauren

    im so happy for her…she truly deserves it!
    the way shes going shes going to have end up making a few rooms just to dedicate to awards; if she hasn’t already…lol

  • Maria

    she totally deserves all this recognition.
    i love her, i think shes amazing :)

  • SJS

    I like a good amount of her music, and despite that her songs are obviously for a younger perspective, I don’t think they’re silly. However, this years AMAs seem to be brown-nosing. I love MJ< but he hasn’t put out anything in years & yet is one of the top nominees. And Taylor is good, but not exactly ground breaking musically. In my humble opinion, I don’t think awards should be given based on sales or popularity. It should be about quality. Taylor is a very good songwriter, but when putting her up against some of her peers- she’s not the best out of everyone. And I do think sympathy played in to this too. She never got this many noms before, despite that this album is the one up for noms on past award shows and such.

    I’m not hating on her. I think she’s good. But there are other, better artists getting by-passed just so that they could put her in as many categories as possible to get more attention for their award show. It’s just hype, brown-nosing, and bs.

    I’m so glad for her, I hope this time nobody will take a mic from her and star to say shit ;-)

  • lol

    @hun98:

    Hun(#1), EVERYTHING Kev (#2) said is right. Taylor Swift is AWESOME! She writes and sings amazing songs & not only is she currently the best selling music artist of 2009 BUT she WAS THE BEST SELLING MUSIC ARTIST also in 2008! Taylor is the best! Oh and she has sold more than 10,000,000 (ten million) records so far – not bad for a 19 year old who released her first album at age 16 & does not have the big Disney money/promotion machine behind her.

    Oh & SJS (#11) you are pathetic if you think symapthy over what that stupid Kayne did is the reason Taylor was nomintated for all those AMA awards. It is quite obvious MANY MANY people love Taylor Swift – juding by her record sales & concerts – people don’t buy all those records out of sympathy.

    I suppose if the Jonas Brothers or Miley were nominated for all tose awards, then that would not be for “sympathy”. like I said SJS – your comments are pathetic.

  • wow

    @kev:

    Amen & then some!

  • SJS

    @lol: Wow. You should try NOT putting your head up other people’s asses sometime. If you read my comment without bias then maybe you would’ve seen me mention her popularity & record sales. I said sympathy from the Kanye thing has added to her popularity & thus is probably atleast somewhat of a factor. Did I say it was the only reason? No.

    Did you see me mentioning anything about JB or Miley? I know why they aren’t nominated & i’m not terribly shocked. I wish Demi & JB were nominated, but i’d be shocked if they ever got 6 noms.

    I like Taylor’s music & I never insulted her once. Like I said, remove your head from whatever ass you’ve currently got it up & try not being “pathetic” yourself next time.

  • wow

    @SJS:

    Too bad you can’t take a little criticisim with some class & not resort to the a–word. Like I said you are pathetic. & if you still think sympathy over the Kayne thing has ADDED to Taylor’s popularity may be you have your head up someone’s a–! Taylor was way way popular before the Kayne thing & she is the FIRST country singer to ever win a VMA award. Don’t think you are fooling anyone with your back handed compliments on Taylor’s music when clearly you are knocking her nominations for the AMA as coming from sympathy. Like I said people don’t buy all those albums out of sympathy!

  • SJS

    @wow: When did I say people bought her albums out of sympathy? I bought her music before the VMAs incident & none of my comments were intended to be back handed. It’s not my problem that you try to make something bad out of nothing.

    And speaking of class, since when is insulting someone just cause you disagreed with classy? How is that any different than what I did?

    You’re a little bit nuts kid. You make normal Taylor fans look bad. Get off your high horse please.

  • wow

    @SJS:

    seems like you like to argue – I just saw all your argumentative comments on the other Taylor post about her & Taylor Lautner.
    maybe you should take your own advice about insults.

    I’m not replying to you after this – so argue with yourself.

    Anyway this post is about Taylor Swift & I am happy she was nominated for all those awards. I hope she wins every one of them Enough said.

  • SJS

    @wow: o_O Good for you. People shouldn’t start arguments if they don’t intend to finish them.

  • adam

    @kev:

    Kev i could be mistaken but wasn’t she the biggest selling artist of 2008 as well? i dont really have time to look it up right now but i think she was. either that or she was right up there.

  • MELENAFTW

    I just thought i would add that Miley is nomanatied too=D
    Go Taylor and Miley!

  • olivia

    @SJS: i think your the one who needs to get off their high horse…

  • sarah

  • j
