Don't get me wrong I think this is amazing for the industry, but don't know if it's "well deserved" for Taylor. She is a label project from the start, well produced and heavily funded. See her VMA performance? Or any non-autotuned, pre-recorded live performance? She can't hit her notes.

With so many incredibly talented vocalists and artists out there it bums me out that those are not the ones recognized and rewarded with this kind of success.

Being a music artist isnt all about sound, its about building a fan-base by connecting to people, and that is what she has done. Congrats Taylor!

Irrelevant. She's popular because she performs her own well-written songs that resonate with a variety of people. End of story.*
