Bridgit Mendler: I'm Honored to Even be Compared to Taylor Swift

Bridgit Mendler: I'm Honored to Even be Compared to Taylor Swift

When Bridgit Mendler‘s music video for “How to Believe” debuted, there were so many comparisons to Taylor Swift!

JustJaredJr.com caught up with the 17-year-old actress to chat about the video a bit and found out just how much fun she had filming it. “That was my first music video ever. It was great to work with all the kids and it was such a cool concept. I was there to encourage the kids to embrace their talents and then to perform on stage. Even performing with my own guitar was awesome, ” Bridgit shared.

Bridgit also shared exclusively with us about the Taylor comparisons, “It was so unintentional (laughs). It wasn’t like, ‘Taylor plays guitar, lets play my guitar; she has wavy hair, let’s make mine wavy too’ kind of thing. It’s such a compliment to even be compared to her because she’s been such a success and of course, she’s gorgeous. But she’s not who I’m trying to be musically. I’m still finding my own thing to do in music.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about the comparisons between the two girls?

    i think bridgit has a better voice,
    still like taylor, even though her voice does get a bit whiney at some points.

  • itsmeagain

  • alex

    I dunno; this is the only photo I’ve ever seen of her, but to me she looks more like the Panabaker sisters than Taylor Swift… Not meant to be an insult to any of them; just an observation.

  • Brenna

    um well taylor swift is about 50 times more talented…

  • Valentina

    OK, come on: who is this girl? … And be compared to Taylor!? TAYLOR = 1000000000 million times more beautiful and talented!

  • Tiffany

    Only a blind man that girl compares with Taylor! Taylor is much, much better!

  • Elisa

    luv bridgit so much! i think shes bettr than taylor,, and honestly, she does sing and play guitar, the only thing tht they changed during the vid is her hair, i luvd her cover of how to believe, almost as good as the original!

  • sOMEGIRLUDONTKNOW

    so -pokes- BLEH!

  • kanani

    Guys, its not about who’s more talented. It’s just that when Bridget’s music video came out, people were saying she was trying to be like Taylor and kind of comparing the two girls. They’re both gorgeous and talented; Taylor musically and Bridget with acting. I don’t get why people always have to say someone is better than someone else. It’s not a big deal, no need to get your panties in a bunch. Just sayin :)

  • safa

    @Bri: She and Selena are mine

  • Bre

    Oh is she that girl from Disney…? Well Taylor is 100 times better :)

  • Pixie15

    Bridgit is alright! but she is nothing compared to Taylor! :)
    Taylor is like huge! and must people don’t actually know Bridgit!
    I actually wouldn’t say she look that much like Taylor!
    But i hope she doesn’t copy Taylor!

  • Daft

    @kanani: dude uve got issues thinking that bridgit has any talent. ur just a freakshow who doesn’t know that tayla is da best. so put that in ur muffin basket.

  • sOMEGIRLUDONTKNOW

  • sOMEGIRLUDONTKNOW

    OH. and BOOGIEWOOGIE!

  • kanani

    Wow, people take things too seriously on here.

  • http://thetaylornation.com Chelsea

    puh-lease

  • BUNNIE1303

    well Taylor is better known & she has more fans,(not hta Bridget isn’t talented) i knew disney could copy but i didn’t think they would go THAT far……

  • TaylorSwiftroxx13

    Okay, how they can compare HER to TAYLOR?! Thats sad. Taylor is waaaay better looking and WAAAY more talented. Sorry Bridget…

  • Sydney

    Hello. Bridget Mendler from Good Luck Charlie? She sorta looks like Taylor, but mostly because of the way her hair was styled in that Disney Tinkerbell music video.

  • kanani

    @Daft: Hahah muffin basket? Really? Lol I love Taylor & she’s one of my favorite singers. I was just saying that I don’t understand why people always have to say someone is better than someone else, everyone is good at some thing. Bridget may not be talented musically, but she’s a good actress. Taylor is an amazing musician, but I’ve never seen her act so I wouldn’t know whether she’s good at acting or not. & again, people take things TOO SERIOUSLY on here, this is my honset opinion. Just like you’re allowed to voice your opinion, I am too. (:

  • layra

    I get why they are compared but Taylor is waaaay more amazing.

  • http://www.bridgitmendlerfans.com bridgit

    She’s great and unique and really nothing like Taylor…hope that Bridgit can make her own path in life and not always be compared to others!

    it’s Bridgit Not Bridget, Thanks ;)

  • http://MYSPACE sHARIDAN

    iM glad for her, shes pretty and talented, yes i have to admit that she looks exactly as taylor swift in this video.. but in my own personal opinion shes like tyring to be more famous or better than other disney channel star, idk theres something on her that makes me hard to like.

  • Danklin

    Bridgit has a much better voice. People that think Taylor Swift can actually sing are tone deaf. She’s absolutely terrible

  • Matilde

    Hello, does anybody knows wich kind of guitar ( brand ) Bridget is playing?
    I am interested to find light blue guitars .
    Cheers , Matilde

  • Bridgit and Taylor fan

    Ehmagawd, love Bridgit and Taylor!! They’re both awesome! Can’t decide which is better!

  • Bridgit and Taylor fan

    @Danklin: that’s very rude. I like Bridgit and all, but none of her songs even play on most radio stations. thought i still really like bridgit.

  • http://Twitter.com Poo

  • glitteryboo!

    hahha !! i think their are both talented eheh :)

  • pshohplz

    What’s with all the hate people? It’s not about who is better looking or more talented! It’s just the resemblance! Gosh!! I personally think that they do look alike and Bridgit does not deserve all this hate over their resemblance. ==

  • taylorbetterthanbridgit

    listen!!! taylor and bridgit are equally very good but taylor has more albums which make taylor famous. but try to know bridgit first b4 u compare… and just for me taylor is better coz i know bridgit and taylor already. and dont argue when ppl like some1 else more than this girl or boy u like coz ppl hav diff likes!!!!!!!there done problem solved kdot.
