Well I’m not in charge of when the billboard decided to award woman for the end of the decade award 😂
lol good point - it's a calendar error run amok in many places looking to make it sooner than it really is :)

Agreed but I don't think it's all about looks, it's about marketability. She's cute, blonde white girl, has an innocent background and sings songs about heartbreak. I can't think of anything easier to sell to teenage girls.
Alleast she writes her own songs unlike Grande or any other popstar
@Kindofweird no one said grande is any better 🤣
@archiz yeah but still Taylor's lyrics feel so much real. like in my entire teenage , I kind of find my solutions in her songs.
@Kindofweird its all about commercialism... swift and to a certain degree trainor bot appealed to a certain market but maybe the people who listened to them should have sought out artisis with a deeper message like kate tempest
Fifteen has a message, change has a message sweeter than fiction has a massage
@Kindofweird so did its all about the bass by trainor but it was all wrapped up in a commercial package that was aimed soley at selling records.
She put out 5 albums snd had tours since 2010.
@MysteriousDarkness And what has she done for music other than sell out to become a pop singer? She started out as a humble country singer, and now you can’t even see her country roots.
I agree except for Adele I would replace her with Rihanna and also definitely add in Lana Del Rey!!
Taylor does deserve that Billboard Award for all the hard work she put in but you don't get anything by bringing down two equally as talented artistes who have worked their butts of to get to where they are today. I have no problem with you liking Taylor but next time don't bring down other women. Everyone has their own shit to deal with and cardi b and Nicki minsj aren't bad influences. These three ladies are idols who show girls how to get want you want and never give.
Cardi and nicki aren't positive idols. Sure, their songs do show you to go for what you want and to really achieve your dream but they don't do it in the right way. Cardi admitted she would rape and drug guys so steal their money and items, is that what you think is okay? Because I find that horrid to do to someone and as someone as influential as her, saying stuff like that will only encourage younger women to do it as well. As for nicki, she regularly posts in revealing outfits and whatnot. While I'm not against it, it isn't healthy for younger girls, say 10 to 16, to be watching that stuff and thinking that's what you should do especially as young as they are. Once they're older, they can do whatever they want but under 18, there is a real risk of pedophiles and sex trafficking that heightens for girls dressed like that out in public. there's a difference in saying someone isn't a positive role model and saying you don't like them.
I get what you're saying Taylor is positive and cardi and Nicki not really but they are still idols tho. It's because of the environment they grew up in. Cardi B was a stripper that's why she says or does things like that but she's trying to change for her daughter and the children out there. Her and Nicki came from the hood ghetto , their lifestyles are so much different from Taylor even tho they don't always give positive influence they're hardworking women. And in no such way can it promote rape or things like that. Parents can limit they're children from watching them or listening to their music if they don't want them to be influenced. And I said ur bringing them bc u said 'they've done nothing but give out bad influences' which is not true. They've encouraged women to pursue their dreams. I agree not everything they've done is good but everyone makes mistakes. That's all
@A__435 I totally agree every single lady there has work their ass off. whether it is Taylor or cardi or Nicki or Grande. they are famous cause they work for it..
This is BILLBOARD magazine, not Newsweek.
smh. The logic.
Lol. So you agree or disagree?
Beyonce. No other artist has shown the depth, range, or growth of Queen Bey, and no other artist goes to the lengths she does to put on a great show. She is an all around tour de force and will never receive her due and it's a shame
@DorkVader Okay Kayne. Beyonce had her time already. She's a legend.
@EABsTUQ Imma let you finish, but Taylor is generic at best. Katy Perry is a better songwriter and Lady Gaga a better artist all around. Even Rihanna, shit.
@DorkVader You just don't like her style. 2010-2020 she is the winner. Maybe you'd have a point if you led with Rihanna.
@EABsTUQ I'm don't care for Tay Sway and the way she uses blackness as a prop, as an artist she's mediocre at best, but she's a good business woman. I just think there are better artists out there. Beyonce's career has grown exponentially between 2010 and 2020. She's my first and favorite choice, and well chosen.
@DorkVader Dude nobody listens to Beyonce but the USA. I doubt you've even ever listen to Taylor's music.
@EABsTUQ Dude, that's their loss! I doubt YOU ever listen to Taylor Swift's music or you wouldn't be debating this bs lol
@DorkVader I was gonna say Lady Gaga and Rihanna.Beyonce I obviously legendary, but her music is not really my type, for the most part.But the problem is all 3 of them were in their prime in the previous decade. We're talking about the decade after 2010 here. Yes, they had a few hits in 2010/2011 (and some great ones at that), but they were at the tail end of their careers pretty much.
And sorry but Katy Perry is trash.
Also, with all due respect, name one hit song that Beyoncé has had post-2010.
I don't see that their careers are nearing the end. Beyonce is the oldest, and she hasn't even hit 40 yet!
Hits? If I were a Boy, Love on Top, Halo, Sweet Dreams, Diva, Partition, Drunk in Love, Formation. The entire Lemonade visual album. The entire Coachella performance. Beyonce been working the entirety of this last decade, and I haven't even named all the songs that charted, just the ones off the top of my head.
Katy Perry is trash, Taylor Swift is too. They're comparable
No, Taylor Swift is not trash. She's actually quite talented.
Halo wasn't that great of a song. But okay- "If I Were A Boy" is a good example; I will give you that. It makes me cry every time.
Oh, but by the way, both of those songs were released prior to 2010.
I was going for when they charted, not album release date
Okay, okay, Miss Technical.
Rihanna fs deserved this award the most thought she’s done A LOT.
I'd say Rihanna or Gaga for sure.
Rihanna is the GOAT.
Lol I see what you’re saying fs !
It’s shocking and they are quite catchy but still I don't know about the best
that shake it off one still hurts my ears
Your cat is so cute
@crmoore If you look at my profile, you'll see two cat pictures. The orange tabby is about 1½ years old. My ex had a cat who lived outside. Christmas night 2018, my ex went to the mailbox by the street and she saw her cat playing near the road. She picked it up and brought it in the house and then realized that it was not her cat but a stray. We named her Miss Kitty and she has been inside with us since that night. She is affectionate and very vocal.In March this year, we decided that Miss Kitty needed a companion so I went to the Humane Society and adopted the black and white kitten Miss Ana. She was a feral kitten and we have worked hard to get her accustomed to being handled. She has become very affectionate, also. She is very athletic and she loved for me to toss treats in the air so she can jump and catch them between her front paws! It is an amazing site to see!I don't have children; I have cats. I know that they are not human but they are my "little girls" who I love dearly.
That is absolutely adorable. My family actually fostered a feral cat that was pregnant. We gave a lot of her babies away because we couldn't keep like 8 babies or however many she had, but she has grown accustomed to the domestic life, too. She used to be very anti-social, and still is to some extent, but after many hears of affection, she has opened up to humans quite a lot. It's very rewarding as I'd imagine it is with your cats as well.
Really your cats are cute. i also love cats.. 🐈
Caitlyn should win. He's so brave.
Kayne is a dick. Whatever you think of TS, what he did was a total asshole move -- true to his personality. He thinks he's in the same league as Prince was. What a joke.
Yeah but he's involved with the actual music industry he didn't just get famous by winning the TV show a n d TS stands for transexual not Taylor Swift and Kanye might be a dick but he's a real musician what has she done and she's not the most influential woman in music right now never will be ever no matter how much you hope she'll never be in the Hall of Fame neither nobody will even hear her records a thousand years from now nobody will know her name 50 years from now sorry she's just not that famous she's fake
50 years from now NO ONE will think of Kayne West OR Taylor Swift as "real musicians", but ANYONE who knows a thing about music will know who Prince was, and what he wrote, and that he was true artist and musical wizard. Mentioning them in the same breath from a musicianship standpoint is actually ridiculous.
I don't think any of those people are real musicians the real musicians are the garage bands the ones that built it up from nothing didn't didn't have it handed to them on a silver platter will having Silver Spoon shoved up their ass and why does she deserve woman of the decade what has she really done or Kanye or Prince I don't listen to most of that garbage anyway that's what it is garbage and I'm sorry but Prince will be known for taking 300 painkillers a day such a great musician but he needed 300 painkillers a day why because Tina Marie died cuz that's what threw his life into a cocked hat that's the only thing I do know about Prince Tina Marie was the love of his life then what about Elvis he is still the richest dead musician ever and actually you know who I think is the greatest musician ever Elton John Eric Clapton Jimi Hendrix John Lennon Pat Benatar Janis Joplin Alan Parsons Joan Jett Cher Madonna David Gilmour Syd Barrett Crosby Stills and Nash Taylor Swift blows hard and so does Prince and Kanye but I still wish you would keep taking her mic away he knew one thing taking it away would get her to shut up
You're entitled to your musical opinion --- however blind it may be :) Prince was a creative genius who wrote some awesome music. Certainly not ALL of his stuff was great, and a lot of it droned on too long just to fill up albums. Just ask other artists and musicians, REAL musicians who play instruments not electronic gizmos, their opinions of Prince and they'll tell you in overwhelming numbers that he was a great talent. The list you have are indeed great musicians, though I take exception to Cher, who is and always was a "showgirl" with a foghorn voice and not even close to the "diva" title people bestow on her. Now, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Mavis Staples, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Streisand, Chaka Khan... now those are diva's.
So my musical opinion is blind because I don't like Taylor Swift or Prince what about Alicia Keys Adele Sade Pink Mary J Blige Beyonce Alanis Morissette Gwen Stefani Mariah Carey Celine Dion Salt-N-Pepa Destiny's Child The Plasmatics Blondie the Wilson sisters and actually no Cher is not a showgirl every outfit for every show is completely handmade custom and only ever used once and I believe she's a smoker so that has something to do with it but she's also fantastic actress in Taylor Swift does use electronic gizmos if she makes music in this day and age she uses electronic gizmos it's called the difference between analog and digital analog was way better vinyl records were way better digital equipment blows but you know what I do like that has Prince in it the first Batman movie cuz he did the entire album for that but I listen to the album separate from the movie and it was wack you can battle all you want for Taylor Swift and Prince but I don't care I know what real music is and it can be made with electronic gizmos because electronic is analog and digital it's just the sound output cable the difference is the quality of the cable have you ever heard of a guy called Moog who developed the first real synthesizer the Moog synthesizer pretty awesome analog oh I didn't mention ELO they made music with orchestras full production orchestras Pink Floyd full production orchestras have you ever heard of rock opera how do you even mention Queen want to talk about a rock God Freddie Mercury I was born with 36 teeth wasn't gay was bisexual and had the great concept AB taking walk and mixing it with Opera hence rock opera put that in your pipe and smoke it
Calm down dude. I never said I liked Taylor Swift OR thought she was a good musician. Cher has always had a husky voice, and she'll always be a showgirl. She's not a great "singer" and never has been, so she learned to augment her talents with a show. Nor did I ever say you had to "like" Prince, but the fact that you wrote him to pill popping obscurity without any appreciation, or understanding of, his writing skills, innovation, and instrumental prowess just shows me you're blind, or biased, because you just don't like his music !! The man was a monster on guitar. Salt n Pepa, Destiny's Child, the Plasmatics, Gwen Stefani, Blondie? While they're good artists, they won't even be footnotes in musical history when you talk about influential artists who changed the face of various genres. People like James Brown and Otis Redding did that. Alicia Keys IS great and I hope she gets remembered. But dismissing Prince because he's not your cup of tea is like saying " eh, Beethoven sucks, I think Mozart was WAY better" ! A person saying that may like listening to Mozart's music more than Ludwig's, and that's fine, but to say Beethoven "sucks" would just tell any musician "you don't know what the hell you're talking about, friend".
okay whatever you say you're one year older than I am and you know everything about music I don't know shitt I'm a dumbass thanks for telling me
@Riddler1412Who do you think deserved it more?
If we're talking female singers, first that comes to mind above Taylor I'd put Lady Gaga. She even won an Oscar.
There are others, but she comes to mind first.
that backhanded compliment made my day :D
(dunno about the award. I'm sure it's nothing to do with her label wanting to selling more records)
That's a ridiculous statement on its face. They aren't even comparable.
I kniw a lot of people that still like her music including myself.
