Entertainment Weekly magazine announced today that Taylor Swift is their 2010 “Entertainer of the Year.” Swift will be featured on the cover of the December 10th issue, which hits newsstands today. Swift is the youngest celebrity to receive this honor.
Entertainment Weekly stated that Swift was chosen due to the fact that she earned “a career’s worth of commercial and critical success in just 12 short months.” Swift kicked off 2010 with a hit single, “Today Was a Fairytale,” a hit movie, Valentine’s Day, and four Grammy wins. Her October 25th release, Speak Now, garnered the highest first-week sales of any album in the past five years.
2010 was certainly the Year of Taylor, as she continues to dominate the digital world as well, reaching a milestone with over one million unique visitors to her website in November. She has over 4.7 Twitter followers and more than 14 million Facebook friends.
