Taylor Swift: “Sometimes, I get on my own nerves”


These are new photos of Taylor Swift in Milan today for the Roberto Cavalli runway show. I didn’t know Swifty was into Cavalli – he seems too rock n’ roll for her girly tastes. I would figure Taylor for Oscar de la Renta and The Gap. But here she is – and I’m assuming this outfit is Cavalli. I don’t really hate it – it’s very Stevie Nicks, correct? Gypsy. Faux gypsy, really. Commercial gypsy. I hate the tights. They’re overkill on an already dowdy outfit – although I think Taylor might make everything look kind of dowdy. She really needs to do something different with her hair, I think.

Anyway, Taylor Swift is getting another job! Every 8 year old’s best friend is probably going to take over a film role that was written for Lindsay Lohan. And NO, it’s not the Linda Lovelace role in Inferno (praise the Lord).

Taylor Swift is reportedly being considered to replace Lindsay Lohan in one of her upcoming movies, the romantic comedy “One Night With You.” Swift, who has appeared in movies like “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” “Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience” and “Valentine’s Day,” could take over the female lead in the flick about a starlet who joins a reality dating show in an attempt to save her career. But, as in most romantic comedies, things don’t go as planned when instead she falls for a bartender who happens to hate all things Hollywood. A love/hate relationship ensues between the two.

“It appears the romantic comedy may finally be off the table for Lindsay Lohan. The producers had actually talked to Taylor Swift’s agent a few months back about replacing Lindsay, but Taylor was in the middle of her tour,” a source said, according to WENN. “Now that Lindsay can’t conquer her troubles, they’re taking the offer back to Taylor.”

Swift’s film rep had not responded to MTV News by press time about the report. But Swift stated earlier this year that her focus was on her music, not making movies. Her new album, Speak Now, is due out in October.

“I’m not making movies right now. I’m making music. That’s always been my number-one love,” Swift said back in June. “It’s been so cool to be able to be a part of things that have been really fun, like being in ‘Valentine’s Day’ and getting to guest-star in ‘CSI.’ I feel like I get to do these little mini-movies when I make music videos, so that kind of fulfills that little need or desire. But if I ever get time, I might like to [act again].”

Regardless of her current status on “One Night With You,” Swift was recently seen sporting a basketball uniform, which she reportedly wore for a part in “Todd vs. High School,” co-starring Jason Segal.

Lohan, meanwhile, is still onboard to star in the Linda Lovelace biopic “Inferno,” despite repeated delays in filming caused by the actress’ ongoing legal troubles.

I think this might be a good call. Maybe Taylor will be an okay mainstream actress. I liked her on Saturday Night Live last season – and I thought she showed deft comedic skills and a genuine liability. But that’s just me – I don’t hate on the girl just because she’s not the best live act. She’s a lot better than Lohan, in any case. BUT – it’s got to suck for all of those young actresses who actually need the work, you know? This is Taylor’s other career, after music. Oh, well. I like Swifty more than Emma Roberts anyway.

One more thing: here’s Swifty on the cover on a Australian girls’ magazine, Cleo. I love the pull quote from Taylor: “Sometimes, I get on my own nerves.” Bless her heart.

    I like the outfit. I think it’s cute. :-)

    Its the puffy shirt from Seinfeld!

  3. malachais says:

    love the boots

  4. Just a Poster says:

    I adore this girl. And as a mother of a daughter I really appreciate her. It is nice to see someone that isn’t all crack and drama for little girls to look up to.

    And yes I do point out women in many different fields for my daughter to look up to.

  5. Eleonor says:

    I want her BOOTS!

  6. flutters says:

    She looks like a mannequin in that first picture. The other ones are not so flattering but I think she wears the outfit well. I’m just glad to see her go for a sort of Bohemian look over the overglammed teenager-dressing-like-an-adult look.

    I think Taylor would make a good comedic actress and hope she does more of that. Honestly her best assets are her personality and songwriting. The singing is a liability so why not focus on her strengths?

  7. Jover says:

    News flash prefab pop tart – you get on the nerves of everyone that wants to hear live talented female singers get their due – not overexposed, autotuned marketing products. Please, along with the KatyPerry’s and others, find some island in the south Pacific where you can torture each other with your bad songs and bad singing, and leave live singing to those females that can actually do it.

  8. iKat says:

    Her hair IS different here… it’s usually much much more curly.
    Here it looks like shes had it blown-out.

  9. Kate says:

    Just a poster: Ditto.

  10. Jeri says:

    Kaiser: “a genuine liability”

    Did you mean “likeability?” although that spelling looks wrong.

  11. Jean says:


  12. Captaine says:

    I’m just yawning myself to death by the sheer amount of blandness this chick exudes.

  13. Oi says:

    I think Stevie could do way better than that. That says ‘trying to hard’. The tights would be cute if she were wearing a plainer (is that a word?) outfit.

  14. Cam says:

    I like the outfit, it really looks good on her. And her hair is fine, I like it.

  15. TQB says:

    Yeah, she’s inoffensive and seems pretty nice. People really are awful to her – I’m so over the Kanye thing, but she seems to take a lot of flack about her singing and just kinda smiles through it. I’ll take her over that little Cyrus tart any day. Nice message. Much better role model.

    But I agree, we need new hair. I can’t see the rest of the outfit over my blinding jealous need for those boots.

  16. Kelly says:

    I think the outfit is absolutely absurd – fashion-y stuff is ridiculous even on fashionistas, but on a girl like this, it makes no sense. Keep it Simple, Taylor!

  17. EMV says:

    Her hair looks grey…she needs to keep it curly or get a new stylist…

  18. DiMi says:

    I like the outfit. It could look dowdy, but I think she pulls it off, and I love the boots.

  19. flutters says:

    Oh! I meant to ask. Have you guys heard the rumors that the song Taylor sang at the VMAs – the Innocent song – was actually about John Mayer not Kanye? Apparently there’s a lunchbox lyric that matches a lyric from John Mayer’s Room For Squares album (a song called 83). Plus John Mayer tweeted a line that matches one of the lyrics in Taylor’s song. Anyway there’s a little analysis of a lot of little “coincidences” starting here:


    Weird that they decided to present it as a Kanye song instead but I guess it was a marketing opportunity right? I don’t think it went over that great though.

  20. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Love the outfit, esp the shirt/blouse

  21. Tazina says:

    She is cute as anything, but I’ve been listening to some of her songs and her voice seems very ordinary, nothing special. I think it’s a good idea she wants to try acting.

  22. Rachel says:

    I covet that outfit more than I can express in words. Sans tights. The tights are too much. The rest of it? Fab.

  23. Oi says:

    @ flutters: that’s an interesting conspiracy theory.

  24. Keyanna says:

    Barf. This chick annoys me. Enough already. I think the outfit needs to be put on someone a little more grown up.

  25. Crash2GO2 says:

    Is she actually wearing red eye shadow?

    She’s all too much one color for me here. Same hair, skin, blouse – bleh.

  26. Confuzzle says:

    I don’t wanna be a pirate!

  27. Cheyenne says:

    Sometimes she gets on her own nerves? That shouldn’t be too hard.

  28. Anna says:

    Is it their enough bad acting out there we don’t need Taylor to contribute to it; she should stick with writing and not singing or acting.

  29. Diva says:


  30. CB Rawks says:

    Thrilled to hear that Taylor is stepping into a new movie role that LiLo screwed herself out of! Ha!
    (It was announced this morning on tv. Could be a rumour, but I hope it’s true. ;) )

  31. DiMi says:

    @flutters – That is fascinating about John Mayer and makes so much sense. NPR online had a hilarious blog making fun of her for writing this emotional song about Kanye West just because he dared to interrupt her. It just seemed totally ridiculous, but it makes sense that she wrote it about Mayer instead.
