Taylor Swift Goes Gangsta and Raps With T-Pain; Wants to Go on a ‘Bling’ Binge

Is it now Taylor Sweezy? Maybe not, but Ms. Taylor “dissed-by-Kanye-West” Swift apparently needs to channel her inner gangsta. She has now committed an act so lewd that it may get country music vets’ jeans in a bunch. The 19-year-old Nashville native with the fragile Goldilocks appearance wants desperately to perform a rap song for the intro of the prestigious Country Music Awards.

Taylor already performed a rap song with hit maker T-Pain, complete with spitting rhymes in front of a tricked-out whip with spinners — on country music turf, no less, up in Nashville, Tenn. We can almost hear CMA producers flinging themselves out the window after hearing this.

But that’s not all. Swift told Rolling Stone that she wants to go on a “bling-bling” binge. Despite the fact that Swift got rudely upstaged and embarrassed at the MTV Awards when Kanye West stole her shine, the experience apparently hasn’t soured her taste for hip-hop and rap stars.

So Taylor … why would you threaten to sully your pristine image by performing with people who are considered outlaws by mainstream standards?

“The CMT Awards asked me, ‘Do you want to be a part of our intro?’ and one of the first things that came to my mind was that I really, really want some excuse to be able to rap and go to the mall and go to those kiosk things and go buy bling and experience rapping in front of a car with spinners for the first time,” she says breathlessly. “T-Pain agreed to it and flew to Nashville and we were in a sweltering hot, 95-degree parking garage for an entire day shooting — I will never, ever forget that memory.”

Seriously, Taylor?

But before you think that Taylor has gone all Amy Winehouse on us, there may be some substance hidden underneath her thick curtain of golden curls. She says she feels fortunate to be exposed to a diverse menu of music genres.

“I’m inspired by all kinds of different sounds, and I don’t think I’d ever be someone who would say, ‘I will never make a song that sounds a certain way, I will never branch outside of genres,’ because I think genres are sort of unnecessary walls,” she continues.

“I’ve been really lucky to have experienced that firsthand, with people taking down those walls for me little by little — I’ve been very lucky that country radio and pop radio have both been so wonderful to me. But when I hear a great song, I can’t help but be inspired by it, regardless of whatever genre that song falls under.”

It’s always the innocent-looking ones that flip the script on us. –terry shrosphire
