by: on | in Red Carpet | 18 Comments


Surprise, surprise. Taylor Swift wore a sparkly gown and won BIG at the 2011 American Music Awards. First, the singer won for Fave Female Country Artist (again!). Then, she won the award for Fave Country Album. But we gotta say it was a bit of a shock when she beat out Adele, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry for Artist of the Year! (We love T.Swift, but really?)

Anyway, check Tay Tay out on the red carpet, then watch her show off her signature “OMG” face as she accepts her 10th(!) AMA!

  • juzme

    Stop hating you haters! Taylor Swift deserves this award! She is freaking awesome! Don’t hate just because you can’t appreciate her music!

  • Caroline


  • !!!!!!!!!

    she only won those country awards cuz nobody knows any country singers but taylor swift, who isnt very country if you ask me…

  • !!!!!!!!!

    She only won all those country awards because nobody knows any other country singers…i dont think she can sing very well and i dont really think she should win it over adele…

  • Emma

    What r u talking about, TEEN?! Taylor is a great singer and she deserves this award.

    • Shelby williams

      you are dumb. you KNOW she cannot sing. -_-

      • Tiffani

        Excuse me? U have no rite to call someone dumb and Taylor is awesome. She is great and an awesome singer. If u wanna hate…hate on other people but not her.

  • cassie

    I really don’t think she deserves the award . Over Katy Perry or Adele ? She definitely did not deserve it and I was highly disappointed when she won . She’s so plain and always sings about the same thing and it’s so freaking annoying how she acts so surprised when she wins . I think Taylor Swift is SUPER LAME !!!!!!

    • khloe

      Are you freaking kidding me? If you won that award I think you would have a more annoying face than she has.

      • Jovana

        yeah well you would be surprised if you won as well and she isn’t plain she is gorgeous, unlike some girls who are sluts and think they are beautiful. Maybe people like her more then katy perry or adele cos they can relate to her songs THAT SHE WRITES HERSELF(which i am sure you probably couldn’t do as well), and she doesn’t try to make herself out to be perfect. Maybe you think she is plain cos she doesn’t do anything scandalous. I know some people don’t like Taylor Swift but you don’t have to hate her. You would be surprised if YOU won as well, so don’t take your anger out on her if she isn’t your fave artist. She deserved to win cos people voted for her.

  • Natalia

    Now,don’t you be hatin. She is an inspiration and role model. She deserves it.

    I don’t listen to country music except when it’s played on mainstream radio (Need You Now, for instance). I have never once heard a Taylor Swift song on the radio. Apparently there are so many 12 year old girls who buy her albums and vote for her at awards time that she will have a career for decades to come.
    She’s beautiful and strikes a chord. But what about those of us who aren’t 12 year old girls? Top 40 radio wants nothing to do with her. How can she be the Artist of the Year?

    • Jovana

      12 yr olds are not the only people who love taylor swifts music and just cos you didn’t hear her on the radio doesn’t mean anything. Taylor Swift DESERVES the award. Maybe you would know if you heard her music or maybe its not your type of music but obviously a LOT of people LOVE her music. Maybe you shouldn’t have your opinion based on Top 40 radio and you don’t listen to the radio 24/7 so how would you know if they played her songs? Her songs have actually been played on a lot of radio stations and she also has a lot of fans so if you still don’t like her after listening to her music, don’t post cos NO ONE LIKES A HATER. And by the way, I am not 12 years old and I still love Taylor Swift, not because of her looks, but because she has a gorgeous voice, so stop bein a hater.

  • Sam

    awww she deserves it!

  • Amara

    NO! she deserves it!!!!! Taylor is a AMAZING performer and such a role model through her lyrics.

    cant wait to see her again in march =)
