And the day after the AMAs, because no one could find something else nasty to say about Taylor after she took home Artist of the Year as well as three other awards, the story was that she wore the same dress Rosie Huntington-Whitely wore on the One Direction video shoot back in August with Taylor’s ex, Harry Styles. E!Online urged readers to comment on who looked sexier. Commenters chose Rosie and dissed Taylor for always trying to get attention.
Really? Does Taylor need to “get attention” as Artist of the Year? Her Red album is a top-grosser that’s landed her third on Forbes top millionaires under 30 with a net worth of $55 million. She’s also a major philanthropist.
So why do Taylor and these other young women get so much heat? Are they really so bad that even on a night when one of them walks away with an armful of awards the only thing that can be said is “someone sexier wore your dress first”? Or do strong, successful women under 30 get more criticism–especially from other women–than they deserve?”
