Taylor Swift Is EW’s ‘Entertainer of the Year’

It should come as no surprise that Taylor Swift has been chosen as Entertainment Weekly magazine‘s ’2010 Entertainer of the Year.’ The soon-to-be legal (are you paying attention, Jake Gyllenhaal?) singer came out of the gates this year with a No. 2 single debut with “Fairytale,” scoring four Grammy wins (Hello, ‘Album of the Year’), and even starred in hit movie Valentine’s Day.

But none of that can compare to the October 25 release of Swift’s third studio album, Speak Now. The country-crossover superstar sold over one million copies in its first week alone. Wowzers.

Of course, all this success has been well-documented on various magazine covers over the past twelve months, reaching a fevered pitch with the release of Speak, comments by her awards show nemesis Kanye, and that brewing romance with Gyllenhaal.

Speaking of Gyllenhaal, does the actor need to worry about his name and
relationship with Swift ending up in a song? On the men who’ve inspired
her music, Swift tells the entertainment magazine, “Sometimes I would
laugh because I would see it in print and it would say, ‘This song,
which is written about her ex, and so-and-so…’ And they would write
about it as if it was fact. The fact is, I haven’t ever confirmed that
any song is about any person.”

Don’t get the wrong idea though, fellas. Swift isn’t doing you any
favors. She adds, “There’s something kind of freeing about that. As far
as I’m concerned, it’s still up in the air.”

Phew. Look’s like your safe, Jake… for now.
