Worst: Taylor Swift just can't stop being Taylor Swift
Honestly, Ms. Swift looked gorgeous. But she just can't stop saying things on camera that make her look like, um, well, let's let Ms. Swift speak for herself. After winning best female video, Swift says, "I tweeted about this a lot. I really, really wanted this. Thank you so much for doing this for me." "I also want to thank the person who inspired this song, because now I got one of these." Yes, Taylor wanted her fans to make sure the voted for her over anyone else they thought was deserving. Can you talk about ego? Then, when One Direction was on stage, a camera caught her saying "Shut the [expletive up]" as BFF Selena Gomez has a look on her facing that seems to say "Dear god, I hope that didn't get on air." Too late. Well, at least Tina Fey has more fodder if she hosts the Golden Globes again.
