Taylor Swift covers . . . Eminem?


Word to Socialite Life for posting this one. Taylor Swift recently swung through Grand Rapids, Mich., where she performed at the Van Andel Arena.

Watch: See Swift's version of 'Lose Yourself'

And as is customary with the blonde pop-country chirpstress on her Speak Now 2011 tour, she sat down with her guitar and paid homage to local artists.

Her songs of choice on this particular night: fellow Grammy winner Eminem's "Lose Yourself" and Uncle Kracker's 2009 hit "Smile." Marvel at Swift's rapping, and repeated utterance of "yo."

If you cover another artists songs, please make sure that you sing it with dignity and style.  Make it better or at least just as good as the artist who created the song.


She said she wanted to pay tribute? 

That wasn't a tribute! 

That was a train wreck!

Taylor, do us all a favor.  Write songs silently & do not perform any more.  Bad, bad, bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yea, love songs and whatever she does....she is a good girl. 


As for Eminem.....listen to his last musac....and have to say, if I wanted that many words crammed in my brain, I would go to school.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I could swear not to long ago Taylor Swift sued a karaoke bar for letting people sing her songs on stage in there bar because she did not get paid for it. Some how I don't think she is going to pay the artistes who's songs she is covering so why is she being such a hypocrite all of a sudden. I really am disappointed by her laps in judgment and it shows what she really thinks of her fans.
