"VH1 Storytellers" is hitting up Grammy-winning ladies for its coming season: Pink, Alicia Keys, and Taylor Swift are the next batch of artists to be featured on VH1?s long-running music-interview franchise, EW has learned exclusively.
â¢ Maybe the meal was good luck? Just a day before winning entertainer of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Taylor Swift dined at the Bellagio's Yellowtail restaurant. Joined by her mother and a few of her band members, the singer sat at an outdoor table - overlooking the casino's famed fountain show - and dined on sushi.
â¢ Taylor Swift is having a sweet New York visit - literally! After meeting Dylan's Candy Bar owner Dylan Lauren at the Met Costume Institute Gala, the country singer stopped into the Upper East Side candy store and picked out some treats, including M&Ms, Milky Way bars and various caramels. Swift also was on the market for some clothes, and visited a local Anthropologie store.
â¢ Taylor Swift walked into Avenue, a new Nashville nightspot, to a round of applause, with her music blaring over the loudspeakers and her historic CMA victory replayed on big screens. The newly minted entertainer of the year held court in a short, black vintage-style dress, doling out big hugs to well-wishers and taking countless photos with anybody who asked. The 19-year-old posed with her mother, Reba McEntire and other party guests at the Big Machine bash. Also in attendance: Jimmy Wayne, Jack Ingram and Justin Moore. Swift and her parents snuck out of the party by 1:30 a.m. (Read all about Swift's amazing CMA sweep - and see pictures from country music's big night!)
â¢ Before winning album of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards,
Taylor Swift caused a stir at TAO Asian Bistro, where the starlet
dined with her mother, band and crew. The group arranged a special dinner at
the hot spot, and Swift, in a black dress and silver heels, enjoyed
signature items from the menu. She also met David Spade, who popped
over to say hi after dining nearby. Also dining at the restaurant while in
town for the weekend: Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves. (See more stars celebrating at the ACMs!)
Called upon on Thursday to be one of the announcers of the 50th annual Grammy Awards nominations, country star Taylor Swift heard her own name announced by the Foo Fighters – she's in the running as best new artist.
