Taylor Lautner hosted SNL last night, and as a bookend to Taylor Swift’s opening monologue last month, boy Taylor also decided to take a stab at Kanye West….
…And it was the lamest lame of lame lameness ever, and I’m a little angry at all of you for liking Taylor Lautner so much and indirectly forcing me to watch that.

Taylor Swift showed up at Z100′s Jingle Ball last night in Madison Square Garden, rockin her usual curly do’. As many of you correctly surmised, the straight look she was spotted in recently was just a wig.
Like many of you, I much prefer the ringlets. But I wouldn’t mind seeing Taylor go straight every now and then. Those limp locks were kind of hot.

Miz Swift turns the big 2-0 on Sunday, and it seems like she wants a new look to celebrate. Taylor sported long straight hair, bangs, and methinks some extensions on Wednesday night, when she did dinner at Otto in NYC with John Mayer, then went to Tasti D-Lite (OH MY GOD I LOVE THAT PLACE) and a candy shop with actress Emma Stone. I absolutely love the new look — it makes her look more womanly and sexy and less girlish, which is appropriate now that she’s no longer going to be a teenager. What do you guys think?

The Grammy nominations are out, and, to the surprise of no one, Taylor Swift and Beyonce are kicking some ass. Beyonce’s leading the list with 10 nominations, and Taylor’s close behind. After Taylor, Kanye West, Maxwell and Black Eyed Peas are tied with six nods apiece. (Why do people still nominate Kanye for awards? That just means he’ll be at the show, and that’s not good for anyone.) Despite a stellar year, Miley Cyrus came up empty, and Britney Spears got one nod for “Womanizer” as Best Dance Recording.
Here are the nods for Best Album:
I Am… Sasha Fierce, Beyoncé
The E.N.D., The Black Eyed Peas
The Fame, Lady Gaga
Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux Kings, Dave Matthews Band
Fearless, Taylor Swift
As much as I love Tay-Tay, Beyonce and Gaga’s albums were both phenomenal. Mostly, right now, I’m terrified that they’re all gonna split the “pop” votes and Dave Matthews Band is gonna come away with the win. I’ll die. I’ll just vomit all over the television and then foam at the mouth and then I will implode with the mind-bending pressure of my hatred of DMB. Please, Lord, no.
The Best New Artist category is, per usual, stuffed chock-full of artists who are not at all new. WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS SHIT? Is it, like, you are a “new” artist if you released your first album no fewer than five years ago? Because, like, Silversun Pickups? The Ting Tings? Keri Fucking Hilson? These people have been around forevah.
Zac Brown Band
The Ting Tings
The full list of nominees is after the jump.

My mother watched Taylor Swift on SNL this weekend. Then she called me and was like, “I watched that Taylor Swift girl on Saturday Night Live. I don’t understand what the big deal is. I wasn’t impressed.”
I am no longer on speaking terms with my mother.
Because Taylor Swift is hands-down the greatest person in the world, and I am going to adopt her as my little sister and then we are going to be best friends and do everything together and she will write songs about me titled things like “Sisterhood: A Love Story” and “My Heart Beets for You, Adoptive Sister” and I will come with her to all her awards shows. And she will dedicate awards to me, because we are best friends. Anyway. On Wednesday, Taylor became the youngest artist ever to win the coveted title of Entertainer of the Year at the Country Music Awards. She also claimed awards for Female Vocalist of the Year, Music Video of the Year for her song “Love Story” and Album of the Year with “Fearless.” WOW. Rock on, Tay-Tay. You deserve it. Also: Who the fuck are the Jonas Brothers, again?
“I want to thank every single person here tonight for not running up on stage during this speech,” she said when picking up her trophy for female vocalist.
ZOMG. Love her so much. LOVE YOU, TAYLOR! Just one little criticism: You’re getting too damn thin!! Eat something, girlie!
Also there: A brunette Kellie Pickler, Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Nicole Kidman, her two breasts and that guy she’s married to, and LeAnn Rimes, who looks just terrible and inexplicably managed to get mascara on her teeth, I think.
