I didn’t watch the CMAs last night. (GLEE was on — I mean, seriously.)
But like most television commentators, that won’t stop me from having an opinion on the broadcast or sharing it here.
God bless the USA.
Rumor has it Taylor Swift won four awards including “Entertainer of the Year.” Reaction was swift — pardon the pun, I like it so much I’m using it twice — and negative.
When show host Brad Paisley tried to compliment Taylor on her win at such an early age, his co-host Carrie Underwood — who lost to Taylor in the Best Female Vocalist of the Year category — interrupted to praise themselves as event hosts.
Then, Wynonna Judd, when asked to comment on Taylor’s win — which makes her the youngest ever “Entertainer of the Year”– said:
“You want my honest comment? It’s too much too soon. Time is God’s way of keeping everything from happening at once. It’s just too much of a good thing too soon.”
Of course, Taylor is young. She celebrated her big win with a cereal party with her mom and dad.
But after watching her do such as a great job on “Saturday Night Live” last week as both musical and guest host — which is something most people aren’t talented enough to even attempt — I’d say Taylor can hold her own. Everyone else just better get used to having her around.
Those comments? Well, they make you sound bitter. And cranky.
La la la.
Ha ha ha.
