Taylor Swift may have looked like a glamazon on the CMT Awards red carpet in her coordinating high heels and Balenciaga dress but when she appeared on stage, she was barefoot! We had to ask Taylor backstage what happened, and the young singer told us the whole scoop. “I had these gorgeous hot pink heels on, and they were awesome. But they really hurt so bad and I was limping up the stairs.” Luckily, another glamorous star was passing by just in the nick of time: Faith Hill! Taylor explains, “I walked by Faith Hill and I was like, ‘This hurts so bad.’ And she was like, ‘Take them off.’ And so at that point I just took off my shoes and did not put them back on. And actually accepted an award barefoot and presented an award barefoot, but Faith Hill told me to. So I did it.” We can’t think of a better reason for not suffering for fashion!

Hi! This doesn’t have to do with Taylor Swift, but can you tell me where Miley Cyrus got that rhinestone studded blazer that she’s wearing in “Would You Wear These Trends?”

Hi! This doesn’t have to do with Taylor Swift, but can you please tell me where Miley Cyrus got that rhinestone studded blazer she’s wearing in “Would you wear these trends?” because I’d definitely wear that jacket!

That’s so tacky and nasty. Taking off your shoes for a formal event is really immature.

That’s tacky! You shouldn’t take your shoes off for a formal even even if Madonna tells you to. I know this is a shocker for some, but celebrities don’t know everything.

I’ll have to disagree with you there.. not trashy at all

except would you rather look nice and have to wince every step you take ( which would then cause you to look bad) or be comfy and still look okay because you had nice clothes on even without the shoes

I don’t see a problem with this at all.
Why suffer all night wearing shoes that kill your feet, when you can just take them off?
She’s 18 guys, give her a break.
