Taylor Swift is an effing superstar Taylor Swift seems to have it all: Talent. Beauty. Hot guys. Grammy Awards. You'd hate her guts if she wasn't so darn awesome.

While Taylor can come across as a little milky — white, wholesome, kind of bland — she blitzed Sydney's Acer Arena on February 6, revealing a charming feistiness as she raced through tracks from her chart-topping album Fearless. Unlike a certain pop starlet who recently mimed her way around Australia, Taylor sang live, strummed at her guitar and plinked at her piano, proving she's worthy of her superstardom.

But the 20-year-old's true talent isn't just singing. It isn't even tossing her hair around, though she's really, really good at that. Taylor is best at working a crowd, and she had the kids eating out of her hand (which, for some reason, had a "13" inked on the back).

The buzz about the Beeb... What is the Beeb?
The "Beeb" is actually Justin Bieber, a 15-year-old pop singer cut from the same overachieving-while-barely-out-of-nappies cloth as Taylor Swift. His website describes him as a "modern-day renaissance man", which is an impressive way of saying he plays four instruments.

When Beeber met a Beetle... Justin Bieber, the 15-year-old muso who's already more successful than any of us will ever be, met his idol Ringo Starr at the Grammy Awards. The kid was so excited that he rushed to Twitter to boast that he was in the presence of a "Beetle".

Presumably he meant Beatle, unless he spotted a ladybug on Ringo's shoulder or something.

Black Eyed Thieves? 'Boom boom pow' rip-off claims The only thing more ridiculous than the lyrics of 'Boom Boom Pow' is the claim that the Black Eyed Peas may have actually stolen the song from somebody else. Was there no better song to plagiarise? Seriously!

Red carpet: Grammy Awards 2010 The question on everyone's mind in the lead-up to the 2010 Grammy Awards wasn't "Who's going to win?" — it's "What will Lady Gaga wear on the red carpet?"

She didn't disappoint spectators, rocking up in a lurid outfit possibly inspired by Intergalactic Explorer Barbie, complete with bright yellow hair extensions, teetering platform heels and a hand-held accessory that's either a magic wand or a medieval weapon. (Frankly, I feel a little let down. By Gaga's usual OTT standards, this is conservative stuff indeed.)

Gaga and her garish dress stole the limelight from Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Pink and the other more sensibly attired music superstars who strutted their stuff at LA's Staples Centre. Check out the best (and the worst) Grammys outfits in the full post.

Grammys 2010 showdown: Beyonce trumps Taylor (but only just) The 2010 Grammy Awards cemented the rivalry that's developing between two of music's biggest superstars: Beyonce Knowles versus Taylor Swift. But it's tough to say who came on top.

Sure, Beyonce won the highly coveted Song of the Year award for 'Single Ladies' (which: completely justified. That song is amazing). But Taylor won the even-more-coveted Album of the Year award for her debut effort Fearless. (Neither of them won Record of the Year — that went to Kings of Leon.)

All up, Beyonce walked away with six Grammy Awards to Taylor's four. Advantage: Knowles... but only just. She's won the battle. But the war continues!

(Luckily, Kanye West wasn't around this time to add his own personal commentary to the Taylor/Beyonce competition...)
