Taylor Swift Wins Performer of the Year at the CMAs

I didn’t live-blog the Country Music Awards last night, and in fact I didn’t even watch them. I considered it for about three seconds, but then I remembered it was Veteran’s Day, and that there was a very good chance of every single person who walked onstage saying some bullshit about our “troops” and what it really means to be an American, all while attending a ceremony to honor a bunch of performers whose non-stop pandering to the genre’s politically conservative and very religious base continues to play a huge part in the slowing down of social progress.

But Taylor Swift won performer of the year! And she performed “Fifteen” on a guitar that has her name written across the fretboard, which you only get to have when you’re really, really famous.
