Hello Taylor Nation!

The National League of Junior Cotillions is an organization that prides in etiquette, ethics and manners. Once a year, they release a list of the ten best mannered people. To quote their site, “The major criteria for selections is that the indvidual has been an outstanding role model of good manners and exemplary behavior during the current year.” Unfortunately, they haven’t updated the list from this year on their site yet… Just saying. Not being impolite or anything. No, we don’t send ninjas to hit people with guitars to get them to vote for Taylor. That must be some other guy.

According to and The Boot, Taylor Swift figures at the fifth position on the list. At the top of the list is the royal newlywed Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

The Sparkly Dressed rates second in Forbes Top Earning Women according to the business magazine. She earned $45 million, with best friend and potential kitty-napper Katy Perry trailing her with $44 million. The overall top earner is Lady Gaga with $90 million. True, but does she have a cat? Ha! Ok, just kidding. You can read more on the story at

The Outspoken One was among the many celebrities spoofed by Saturday Night Live on December 17, during a skit with Michael Buble singing duets with several of the SNL cast impersonating celebrities. The Enchantress was played by Kristen Wiig, complete with guitar and mimicking Tay’s look of surprise. It was all in good fun and pretty tame, I believe T-Swizzle would approve.

Unfortunately, I can’t embed that video. You can see it if you follow this link at or just click on the pic, but you must be in the US to watch it. You probably can find on YouTube but I don’t want to post it and get somebody’s account closed.

To make up for it, here’s Charlie Worsham singing at 12th and Porter in Nashville back in July 2011. See, this time I post it without Liz being in the video. I had no hidden motive whatsoever! Ok, who am I kidding. Liz Huett is in the video. You got me.

A big wave hello to @_Jencita_ for letting us know about the clip!

Holiday wishes and greetings from the Outspoken One :)

Hello Taylor Nation! That’s Tay with Meredith on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

The Sparkly Dressed talked to People and took the chance to send some wishes to her fans and friends. “I hope that they’re happy, wherever they are … they feel loved by the people around them,” said the Blonde With The Sparkly guitar. “And most of all I hope they feel appreciated by me. My life would look nothing like this without them.”

The Queen of Sparks, who’s happy to have released her own Wonderstruck fragrance this year, revealed her Nashville holiday uniform is basically sweaters, jeans and boots.

She revealed these days she’s doing some Christmas shopping. “I like to get my friends gifts that show that I really know them,” explains T-Swizzle. “If one of my friends says something about wanting something, I’ll write it down and get that for them for Christmas.”

As for gifts for herself, the Enchantress wouldn’t mind a pasta maker, antique picture frames and anything from Free People or Anthropologie. You can read the full story on
