Fans saw a different side of Taylor Swift at the 2012 American Music Awards.

The artist performed "I Knew You Were Trouble" in front of screaming fans and millions on television, tearing off her sparkly dress at one point to reveal a bustier and black tights to go along with a pair of combat boots.

Were you a fan of the look? The rendition? Watch and grade now:

Just 24 hours after Selena Gomez's disastrous dinner date with Justin Bieber, the singer-actress met up with pal Taylor Swift for dinner last night.

Oh to be a fly on the wall at Osteria La Buca in Los Angeles.

"The girls shared an Italian meal and seemed to have the best time," an onlooker says. "There were a lot of giggles and laughter. They looked like great friends."

"You could tell they were also in deep conversation throughout the meal. Taylor was very protective of Selena and escorted her to and from the car."

The probably-single ladies certainly have plenty to discuss ...

Ladies and gentlemen, presenting... Tarry?

According to Mario Lopez, Taylor Swift - who performed Thursday night on The X Factor - is involved romantically with Harry Styles of One Direction.

Just read what the co-host said last night on his 104.3 MY FM radio show:

"During rehearsals, Harry from One Direction came and slapped me on the back, and said, 'Hey, Mario, how ya doing?' And I said, 'What are you doing here?' And he sort of [pointed] toward Taylor."

  • Harry Styles on Stage

Swift, of course, recently split with Conor Kennedy. But she isn't typically one to remain single for long.

Lopez says he saw the pop singers "walking off hand in hand," adding: "So Taylor Swift and Harry from One Direction -- you heard it here first."

And we'll all hear more about it later, after these two break up and Swift comes out with a new album.

Yes, those two acts really were sent home on last night's X Factor results show.

Are you still reeling from the decisions?

While fans debate the merits of whether a certain female performer deserved to be eliminated, we can all likely agree on one thing: Taylor Swift is as awesome of an artist as Khloe Kardashian is terrible as a host.

The former proved so once again by taking to the Fox stage last night. Watch her belt out "State of Grace" now:

Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy are still together, having recently hatched a scheme to make people THINK they split, according to a new report.

They only "broke up" to get their families off their case, says a source:

  • Taylor Swift, Straight Hair

“Taylor and Conor are pretending to everyone that they’ve split up, and so far they’ve done a really good job of convincing friends - and even the press - that it’s true.”

“They hatched the scheme because the Kennedys were putting pressure on Conor to concentrate on high school and getting into a top college."

Taylor Swift is featured on the cover of yet another magazine this week.

And you won't believe it, but the singer is talking about her love life with Harper's Bazaar.

Without revealing any names (cough... cough... John Mayer... cough... cough...) Swift says "some combinations of people are toxic, you know? You have to find the right one that isn't just going to explode into fiery ash and destruction."

Of course, this has been a challenge for Taylor, who recently split with Conor Kennedy.

It's a red hot success, but why did Taylor Swift actually name her new album "Red?"

It's a good question, and it's one the superstar answers this Sunday on VH1's Storytellers. Unsurprisingly, there's a male involved...

Swift says the CD's title track is about "this relationship that I had that was, like, the worst thing ever and the best thing ever at the same time.

"I was writing this song and I was thinking about correlating the colors to the different feelings I went through."

It's incredible but true: Taylor Swift did not win any CMA Awards last night. Seriously, we checked. There were no errors.

But the super, duper star still made her presence very much felt at the event, performing one of her new singles live on stage.

Mirroring her Begin Again video - which is set inside a Paris cafe - Swift dressed in red and sang in front of an accordion player, along with couples sipping on lattes. Watch for yourself now:

Among other performances at the ceremony, Kelly Clarkson and Vince Gill teamed up for "Don't Rush."

The numbers are in and, to the surprise of absolutely no one, Taylor Swift sold many albums over the past seven days.

"Red" moved 1.2 million copies in its first week of release, the highest total for any CD since Eminem's "The Eminem Show" in 2002.

The album is also the first one to break the one-million mark since Lady Gaga and "Born This Way" in 2011, according to Billboard, and is the second-largest debut for a female artist ever, following the sale of 1.319 million copies of Britney Spears' "Oops! ...I Did It Again" in 2000.

In other words: peeps love themselves some Taylor Swift!

Swift, meanwhile, continues to promote the heck out of "Red." She sang her breakout hit about never getting back together with a certain someone on Dancing with the Stars last night.

We are still trying to process what went down on last night's Dancing with the Stars results show.

But while the eliminated couple came as a shock, this did not: Taylor Swift performed on the ABC smash... and was terrific!

The mega superstar belted out a version of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" while clad in a red bow tie and dancing around on a red stage. How come? See the name of her new album title.

And then see Taylor in action now:
