Today's Evil Beet Gossip
Taylor Swift

Quotables aka Bitter for $200, Alex


“You want my honest comment? It’s too much too soon.  Time is God’s way of keeping everything from happening at once. It’s just too much of a good thing too soon.  My thing is, being a home-school mom, I want kids to earn it, and I think some time … ’cause mom and I rode in a car for the first year of our career to visit radio stations. There was a making of the star, there was a rising up, and the fans went with us.  Now it’s over coffee breaks, the success, almost.  You have to play catch up … It’s like the girl who wins an Oscar and she’s under 20. What do you do from here?”

Wynonna Judd’s response to Taylor Swift’s record-breaking win as CMA’s Artist of the Year last night.  You know, maybe Whinonna (intentional) should spend a little more time CORI checking her kids’ teachers and a little bit less time being a bitter, old, washed-up hag who has nothing better to do than rain on the victory of the new kid on the block.

Taylor Swift Continues to Be the Most Awesome Person on the Planet


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.

The Country Awards No One Cares About Were Last Night


I was so confused.  I knew there was some sort of country music award ceremony this week and pictures from the 57th Annual BMI Country Awards came across the wire this morning.  Now, I wouldn’t attend an awards show that reminded me of my body mass index either, but I was surprised to see how few celebs attended.  Like, Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman and Taylor Swift were there, but not too many more notables (if you can count Chris Sligh of American Idol “fame” as a notable).

It took a little bit of research for me to learn that the awards that people actually pay attention to, the CMAs, are tonight.  Prepare for a blinding photo gallery tomorrow full of the over-whitened teeth and liberal use of sequins that I’ve come to expect from Nashville.

Taylor Swift Takes Digs at Kanye and Joe Jonas on SNL

Taylor Swift hosted Saturday Night Live last night and opened the show by doing a little ditty about some things we were all hoping for her to comment on, namely Kanye West crashing her VMA speech, her terrible break up with Joe Jonas and her relationship with Taylor Lautner.

Taylor more or less confirmed that she’s dating Lautner, went pretty easy on Kanye and really slapped Joe Jonas across the face. Despite her obvious nerves, she got through the song and was a hit with the live audience. I’m sure her fans watching at home went crazy.

Four Words I Can’t Believe I’m Writing: Taylor Swift Swastika Scandal

Taylor Swift and a Swastika

Taylor Swift attended Katy Perry’s crazy 25th last weekend where guests were asked to show up in all white and throughout the night had paint splashed on them by other guests. Sounds like a crazy good time, right? One of the guests got so, um… carried away with his design that he or another guest painted a swastika on his shirt. And then Taylor Swift danced by him, and even worse, took a picture with him.

Now it’s safe to assume that even though she’s underage, Taylor had a cocktail or two at the affair. While this doesn’t sound like the kinda party you need to drink away, the crowd there that night wasn’t exactly sober and Taylor’s at the age where a girl would be drinking if she were in college even though it’s not exactly legal. I would say “Look at Lindsay Lohan”, but Taylor strikes me as a pretty good girl. I also see her as a smart girl. Even if she agreed with the message that this guy was putting out there, she probably would know better than to stand with the symbol had she been aware it was there. I have the feeling that Taylor may have been seeing double from her drinks and didn’t realize what she was looking at when she agreed to pose for a shot.

Does this image change your opinion of Taylor?

Well, Well, Well. What Do We Have Here?


Tay Squared were out and about again last night.  Now they’re shopping together?  Shopping?  They’ve advanced to that level?  I’ve been married for five years and my husband and I still aren’t ready for that level of togetherness!
