Ghastly Grammys: Taylor Swift Wins Big

Posted by Alyssa on February 1st, 2010

Grammy winners.

If you like Taylor Swift, please put my rather strong opinions on her recent Grammy win aside for just a minute. Taylor Swift won “Best Album of the Year,” with her album, “Fearless,” accepting her award with profound enthusiasm. Although I can’t turn on the radio without being bombarded by Swift’s sappy, youthful pop tunes, I just can not get past the fact that she won over artists like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and The Black Eyed Peas! I was appalled.

She was very influential through 2009 and now, continues on into the new year. Influence though? Her music applies to one specific group of people, one target market, if you will: a range of pre-teen to highschool girls who absorb her musings on love and listen while Swift destroys Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. I would be a hypocrite if I said my itunes was completely devoid of Taylor Swift, and I stand by my four song selections, but that in no way signifies my support of her grammy win for “Best Album of the Year.” She seems like a very sweet girl, and I hate to rag on her so, but I simply must. Although most of the other nominees in her category weren’t exactly devoid of grammys, it would have been nice to see such an important category win go to someone who has a bit more range/experience.

That’s all I’m saying.
