  1. This award is from merchandisers, who have no interest on her actual 'voice' or lack there of. Once the tweeners get older and move on to something else, Taylor Swift will be 'old' news and off the front page. Can't happen soon enough. Maybe someone with talent will be the next biggest thing. An improvement, for sure.
