Taylor Swift Isn't That Off-Key!
I'm a little late to this picnic, but I finally caught up with the Grammy Awards (I was away) and prepared for the Taylor Swift trainwreck everyone had clucked about, expecting her to not come any closer to any of the notes than I have to Wasilla, Alaska.
But while there were indeed a few kooky sounds in Taylor's "Rihanna" duet with still-twirling Steve Nicks--a very hard harmony to pull off--I didn't think it was a horror on a scale with John Stamos in Bye Bye Birdie.
Let's stop ganging up on the Nashville nymph and let her learn and grow.
Still, that doesn't mean the middle-of-the-road little thing deserved Album of the Year!!!
