Posted in Taylor Swift on October 11, 2011 by fadedblog

It’s another honor for Taylor Swift. The country music superstar has been crowned “Woman of the Year” by Billboard magazine.

The 21-year-old multiplatinum singer-songwriter is the youngest to receive the award, which has gone to Beyonce, Reba McEntire and Fergie.

She will be honored at the 2011 Billboard Women in Music event in New York on December 2.

Her latest album, Speak Now, has sold over 3.6 million copies since its release last year, and she’s sold the most albums of any artist over the past year.

It’s the latest honor for Miss Swift, who became the youngest person to win the Grammy for best album for Fearless in 2010. She has also won several ACM, CMA and AMA awards.

Taylor is currently on a national tour.

Taylor Swift is the latest victim of the dreaded celebrity wardrobe malfunction.

The country bumpkin accidentally bared her underwear on stage during a concert in St. Louis, MI on Saturday.

Proving the show must go on, Taylor handled the situation like a pro and kept and singing after a quick adjustment.

Taylor now joins other stars such as Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Kate Middleton, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Lopez and many others who have all unintentionally showed off their goodies in public.

Taylor has always worked very hard to keep her image squeaky clean. Her choice of knickers confirms that. You’ll see what we mean.

Entertainment Weekly has named Taylor Swift the youngest Entertainer of the Year since the publication launched in 1990.

While the praise and accolades are nice, here’s how the mag tried to get some dish on her new beau Jake Gyllenhaal:

EW: Okay, moving on: Have you seen any good movies lately?
Swift: Um, yes! [Laughs] What have I seen lately? None that are out yet.

EW: How about Love & Other Drugs, starring Jake Gyllenhaal?
Swift: [Smiles] It’s a good movie.

EW: So what’s it like to go away for a weekend with someone and have it end up on the cover of a magazine?
Swift: I write in great detail about my personal life, but I don’t talk about it.

EW: Is anyone in your life allowed to say, “You can’t write a song about me”?
Swift: Nothing is off-limits as far as writing. You can’t have parts of your life you don’t write about.

Among the others who made the list after Taylor: Jon Hamm, Kanye West, the kids of Modern Family, James Franco, Stieg Larsson, Katy Perry and the Glee gang.

Never in the same spot for too long, Taylor Swift was spotted arriving at Narita International Airport in Narita, Japan today (November 16).

Surrounded by airport handlers, the 20-year-old country music sensation is in Japan to promote her just-released album, Speak Now.

Meanwhile, actor Jake Gyllenhaal reportedly spent big and rented a personal jet to continue his courtship of Taylor.

The Brokeback Mountain star is said to have spent $160,000 whisking the blonde beauty from the US to the UK on a private jet to be with her for 24-hours.

She flew in to Luton on Saturday and then the stars locked themselves away until Monday in Jake’s London hotel suite at The Dorchester.

“Jake wanted some quality time with Taylor,” a source tells The Sun. “If he hadn’t done this, they would have missed each other as he had to fly back to the States. He hired a jet which would easily have set him back $160,000.”

The insider adds: “It’s a mega-gesture between mates who claim they are just “hanging out.”

Dressed like the little princess that she is, Taylor Swift took the stage to sing Back to December during the 44th annual CMA Awards in Nashville, TN this evening (November 10).

Following her performance of the song that is thought to be about Taylor Lautner, Miss Swift was seen mouthing the word, “What?” It was reminiscent of Faith Hill’s similar reaction in 2006 when she lost in the Best Female category to Carrie Underwood.

But in this case, the official word from backstage is that Taylor was just acting all humble and responding to the audience’s enthusiastic reaction to her performance.

Taylor Swift was among the attendees at the 58th Annual BMI Country Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee today (November 9).

Looking ravishing in a glittery black halter dress, the country music sensation could be seen rubbing elbows with the likes of Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum frontwoman Hillary Scott ahead of the star-studded show.

Hosted by BMI President & CEO Del Bryant, along with Nashville Writer/Publisher Vice President Jody Williams and Assistant Vice President Clay Bradley, the BMI Country Awards salute the songwriters and publishers of the top BMI country songs played on American radio and television during the previous year. The organization will also bestow prestigious honors on the genre’s Songwriter of the Year, Publisher of the Year and most-performed Song of the Year, also known as the Robert J. Burton Award.

The evening will culminate with the presentation of the BMI Icon award to country legend and father of the contemporary country sound Billy Sherrill who has rendered “a unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.”

Meanwhile, in not so good news, Porn king Steve Hirsch plans to spoof Taylor and rapper Kanye West‘s one-time feud in a new X-rated movie.

Vivid Entertainment plans to have the pair kiss and make up in the bedroom as they parody their relationship in a naughty new DVD.

Production on the racy film will begin in “the next two months.”

Says Hirsch, “We’re always analysing news stories for their movie potential. The Kanye/Taylor feud has high visibility, is filled with passion and is something we believe that fans of adult films would enjoy. We’re reviewing script concepts and definitely want to include that famous moment at the Video Music Awards.”
