Swift apparently responds to Kanye at VMAs

Sunday, September 12, 2010 – Taylor Swift debuted a new song at the VMA awards Sunday night, which appeared to be a response to last year's Kanye West debacle when he stole the mic from Swift and was forced to disappear from the music scene.

Swift sang at the VMAs, starting with grainy footage of last year's event where West said Beyoncé deserved to win an award, not Swift, before switching to Swift sitting with guitar in hand.

Swift, singing barefoot with a strapless dress, sang "I guess you really did it this time/Left yourself in your war path/ Lost your balance on a tight rope/ Lost your mind trying to get it back."

Swift later stood up, continuing the song. Lyrics appeared behind her like fireworks before disappearing. She closed by singing, "Who you are is not what you did/You're still an innocent."

The song is from Swift's upcoming release "Speak Now," due out in late November.

Swift wrote all 14 songs here, which like her other albums tend to deal with relationships that have gone south. Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
