Just like people in common, Taylor Swift admits she likes to read gossip blogs too, referring to "Just Jared and Perez Hilton" among the blogs that she likes to visit. Besides reading "what's going on with celebrities," she also likes "to have things to talk about" concerning the issues she finds in those blogs.

"I'm in the makeup chair a lot talking to people and I'm like, 'So, did you hear that so-and-so was dating so-and-so and that they were seen last night and that they ordered salads?'" she reveals. "It's not like you can just make movies and sing songs and people aren't going to want to know who you're dating and where you're eating. I'm curious about that too. I'll admit that."

Asked what about if she becomes the subject of the reports featured on those gossip blogs, Taylor replies, "I don't have issues with showing up on those blogs, as long as it's not too mean. It's like, 'Yeah, I ate a salad last night. That's okay if you know that.'" And despite the constant media attention that she receives, she admits to be feeling "lucky" because the blogs "have been really nice to" her.

Though so, Taylor often finds blogs readers post anonymous comments about her, which she often ignores. "When people can be anonymous, they're vicious and it's like sixth grade stuff like on crack. It's terrible," she claims.

Taylor Swift discusses about her reading gossip blogs with Country Music Television (CMT) host Katie Cook in "Taylor Swift: Insider Special Edition," which is slated to be aired on CMT Thanksgiving Day, celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States, at 10 A.M. ET.

Well said, Chris. I've been saying that for quite some time now, but nobody was listening. This girl can't sing. And when I say she can't sing, I mean that she sounds way too generic and equally boring--and that is a fact. She totally lacks that individuality needed to sell records on real singing ability. If you saw her when she sang LIVE next to Stevie Nicks, then you'd know what I mean. She sells records because other female teens relate to her lyrics--and because she is so cute. But make no mistake; there is no emotion to her songs. Writing her own songs doesn't make her talented, folks. Her writing is pedestrian at best, by the way. At least Britney Spears had a better execution in her songs. They were not only catchy but sexy. They totally conveyed emotion, despite her singing abilities (or lack thereof). I totally grooved to her music, though I never did so in public. Carry Underwood is much more sophisticated than Taylor Swift in every sense of the word. I also love Kellie Pickler and Lila McCann. Have you ever listened to Lila's "Go Easy on Me" song? Beautiful! Carry Underwood's music, for instance, is not only beautiful, but it is also vastly seducing--very well structured lyrically, vocally and musically. She invokes emotion in every song that she interprets. Now, that's what I call talent! Any person can write their own material. Quality, however, can only be achieved by a few. Taylor Swift conveys the opposite of quality--inferiority. She isn't very good quite frankly. She is given way too much credit. Why is she famous then, you ask? Deep down you know answer. At any rate, when Kanye West disrespected her at the VMA's, I knew that this would help her sell more records, and top the charts longer, out of sympathy. Everyone just seemed to show their support with their wallets and positive feedback, after that unfortunate incident took place. I only wish that someone more respected in the music industry would have come out and said what Chris Robinson so eloquently stated in that magazine interview. This guy is viewed as a stoner and has-been nowadays, so there may be little stock in what he says to some people, though he clearly speaks words of truth. But celebrities are afraid of criticizing a cute girl for fear of being called "insensitive," or career reprisal.
