Hey Taylor Nation.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who thinks if you have nothing really nice to say you shouldn’t say anything unless you find a really funny way to say it, we picked this picture of Taylor with friend and actress Jaime King because she’s smiling there.

They are both attending the 22nd Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party. The event took place on March 2, 2014 in West Hollywood, California. According to PR Newswire, Ed Sheeran was on hand to perform.

She also attended the Weinstein Company pre-Oscar bash. She has some pictures on the red carpet of that event  too but she’s not smiling that much. If you’ve seen clips, you know that carpet is full of screaming paparazzi shouting like a pack of hyenas. My apologies to the hyenas for the comparison. More pictures at Hollywood Life.

Taylor Swift is nominated for Favorite Female Singer and Favorite Song for the 2014 Kids Choice Awards. You can vote as much as you want. There are no voting rules to find (there are Terms of Use and Ground Rules, nothing about voting though) so I can’t even see what the disclaimers are. I’m not throwing a party about this one. It won’t be a surprise if/when all the winners have already been info- I mean, they all happen to be in the audience.

On other news, Taylor Talk Episode 123‘s main discussion was based on my editorial, Why Latin America might be long overdue. The hosts invited me to participate in the discussion. It was fun and I owe Adam one as he had make sure I didn’t stray off topic. Thanks to Adam, Diane and Sammi for having me. You can listen to it here.
