AceShowbiz - Fresh from her performance at the 42nd annual Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday, November 12, %cTaylor Swift% took time to blog about her red carpet gown. She also addressed on meeting up with her idol %cShania Twain% during the ceremony.
"In other fashion news, my red carpet dress weighed about 400 pounds," Taylor wrote on her MySpace blog Friday, November 14. "Actually, about 30. But it was still heavy. It was like dragging around two small children, dangling from my ankles. And it made a lovely jangling noise whenever I walked. It was made out of huge jewels, platinum chips, and other metal-ish things that would fall off at random intervals throughout the night ... and my dad would reach down and pick each one up and say 'Ebay.' Whenever people would ask me what it was made of, I'd just say I broke a mirror, dipped myself in glue, and rolled around in it."
"But the real moment that brought on this wave of gratitude was when Shania Twain HERSELF walked up and introduced herself to me," Taylor continued writing about meeting up with the country singing sensation. "Shania Twain, as in.. The reason I wanted to do this in the first place. Shania Twain, as in.. the most impressive and independent and confident and successful female artist to ever hit country music. She walked up to me and said she wanted to meet me and tell me I was doing a great job. She was so beautiful, guys. She really IS that beautiful. All the while, I was completely star struck. After she walked away, I realized I didn't have my camera. Then I cried."
She ended her post, gushing, "You know, last night made me feel really great about being a country music fan in general. Country music is the place to find reality in music, and reality in the stars who make that music. There's kindness and goodness and....honesty in the people I look up to, and knowing that makes me smile. I'm proud to sing country music, and that has never wavered. The reason for the being.. nights like last night."
