Taylor Swift “blown away” by Grammy nods

taylor_swiftTaylor Swift couldn’t believe it when she found out she’d been nominated for eight Grammy awards. “I started freaking out and jumping up and down,” Swift, 19, told the Associated Press. “I honestly never would have predicted this, eight nominations – I’m ecstatic, and blown away and so, so thankful. To be recognized by the Grammys is the ultimate honor, and all I know is that when I write about this in my journal tonight it will be in all capital letters and underlined four times, and there will be lots of exclamation points in this entry because I never imagined I’d get to write this kind of journal entry.” Swift has been nominated before, but has never won a Grammy. “The thought of that absolutely is something that you daydream about,” she says. Looks like this may be her year. The only artist with more nominations is Beyoncé, with 10. The Grammy Awards will be handed out on January 31. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    Enough about Taylor Swift, we need her to go away now.

    What kind of comment is that, demigod? She deserves this, especially after all that she has been through!

    Congrats to Taylor Swift, she is a very talented young lady that deserves all the praise that she receives.
    She shows that talent wins over studio made wannabe artists that couldn’t sing live to save there lives….Taylor writes, sings, plays guitar, and has control over her image, sound, and career. She is one smart and talented cookie. 😀

    brandi, I couldn’t agree more, she really seems to have her head on straight, and totally deserves these nominations, I’m very happy for her.
    Linda, what all has she been through? All I know about that wasn’t good, was the embarassing situation with Kanye West.

    Brandi,if she does all that it’s more than most. But she’s still just part of a marketing machine in an industry saturated with more deserving talent. She’s just more ‘presentable’. She’s 19, what’s she been thru?

    Jealousy is an ugly trait.

    This girl deserves to be where she is.She is an excellent role model for young women. Her clean beautiful lyrics, lovely voice and genuine modesty are very endearing. She is A WINNER IN MY BOOKS!

    umm kinda disagree with u demigod. In terms of pop artists id say swift is one of the more talented ones, and she’s more presentable cuz she’s one of the only ones who hasn’t whored herself out to the world…
