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! 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,

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 @ 7:22 pm on 08/29/2010

Valentina @ 9:29 pm on 08/29/2010

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 @ 5:05 am on 08/30/2010

@Bri: She and Selena are mine

Bre @ 7:26 am on 08/30/2010

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

Pixie15 @ 8:50 am on 08/30/2010

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!

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

Sydney @ 7:44 pm on 08/30/2010

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.
