Taylor Swift Named Entertainer of the Year by the Associated Press

Is Taylor Swift Receiving Too Much Acclaim Too Soon?

Taylor Swift can add another title to her stack of accolades. She's just been named Entertainer of the Year by the Associate Press. In recent years, Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert have been given the honor, which sort of gets me wondering — is Swift too young to have all of these awards so early?

Even though Fearless came out in late '08, it surged through '09 with tracks like "Love Story" and the everywhere song, "You Belong With Me." Swift has racked up countless statues from the American Music Awards Artist of the Year to when she made history at the Country Music Awards as the youngest artist ever to earn Entertainer of the Year. And lest we forget her Best Female Video win at the VMAs when Kanye West stormed the stage. Even Swift's acting career has taken off — there's a rumor that Swift is being eyed for a movie role as Supergirl.

Critics and fans obviously love her, but that's a lot of hype for someone who hasn't been in the industry for decades and decades. I'm sure you have some strong feelings on this one, so what do you think? Is this all just a case of too much, too soon for Taylor Swift?

WHAT? this is ridiculous. yes, she's talented, but so are a LOT of other artists. her music isn't even all that great and she doesn't sound that great live. ugh!

I really don't get it. I still haven't heard a song from her. So, how in the hell is she "Entertainer of the Year". At least, with the others, I've heard of them and knew their work.

anon- i agree. i'm sick of everyone saying of how "wonderful" and "pure" and "wholesome" and "genuine" she is. nobody's really that perfect. plus her music really isn't anything special at all- just the same old tweeny bopper cookie cutter mess. bleh.

Waaaay to much too soon. I mean, shes talented and cute and good songs. But the way that radio and everyone deals with her its like she's taken over. I have both her albums and even I'm sick of hearing her.

I think Taylor Swift contributes something really important to Hollywood that is wholesome, smart and fresh. Plus she's genuinely talented and a hardworker. I think its all the more admirable that she's young, and that shouldn't be held against her.

i think that she's very talented - but i think that there's something to be said about having a career for a bit before you get all the awards that are out there. what's to say that her first few efforts aren't it you know? i'm sure she's going to be around for years to come, and i can't wait to see what she does.

No...I don't think age and experience necessarily have anything to do with talent. And no one can deny how extremely talented she is! She deserves all the attention.

I don't have a problem giving big awards to young people...if they really deserve it. However, I do think this is all a little too soon for Taylor Swift. I really love her and enjoy her music, but she has only produced two albums neither of which were outstanding. They were good and lots of fun, but not deserving enough for entertainer of the year. I think she has a lot more growing to do before she is completely deserving of all the acclaim. Can't wait to see what she comes out with as she gets older!

I think Taylor has worked really hard this past year. She deserves all the success and honours
