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.
