Taylor Swift was the major winner at last night's Country Music Association Awards. The artist beat out Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton to earn Entertainer of the Year, an honor Taylor appeared truly shocked to win.

Swift took to the stage and thanked her fans around the world for coming out to her stadium shows, while also giving a shout-out to artists who joined her for duets throughout the summer, such as Nicki Minaj, Jason Mraz and Usher.

Watch the acceptance speech now:

For the record: Taylor Swift is NOT posing topless anywhere on the Internet. That much is certain.

Over the weekend, however, a site desperate for traffic photoshopped a picture to make it look - to the REALLY untrained eye - as if the singer were propped on her bed, shirt off, smile on her face.

Protective of her reputation, Swift has fired off a letter demanding the site remove the image.

As of this writing, though, it remains live on a URL that bills itself as a "holy Muslim celebrity gossip site" and which has "jihad" in the name. Seriously, it's not even worth linking to. We're not gonna give the owners the pleasure.

Just rest assured, readers, that any headline you see that screams TAYLOR SWIFT TOPLESS is a lie. Thank you.

Taylor Swift appeared on Ellen today and was adamant: she is NOT seeing anyone at the moment! Unless you count the cast of Law & Order.

Taylor Swift on Ellen

"I sit by myself and I watch Law & Order. I don't have a boyfriend," the singer told the host. "I don't even have like kind of a boyfriend. I don't have someone that I'm texting that is a guy that someday might be my boyfriend. There's like nothing going on right now."

Taylor Swift has received yet another honor.

The multiple-time Grammy and Country Music Award winner is Billboard's Woman of the Year, the magazine announced this week, making Swift the accolade's youngest-ever recipient.

"Taylor has shown the power of good songwriting with music that has transcended genres," said Bill Werde, Billboard's Editorial Director. "At the young age of 21, Taylor has already made a major impact on music and has been an incredible role model for aspiring songwriters and young women everywhere. I look forward to watching her career continue to flourish in the years to come."

Swift has spent all summer on her Speak Now tour, covering tracks by local artists and welcoming special guests on stage. Catch up on various performances by the star in our Taylor Swift video section!

Another Taylor Swift concert, another special local guest star.

As THG has excitedly documents over the past few weeks, Swift has been inviting hometown favorites on stage with her throughout her Speak Now tour, from Usher in Atlanta to Andy Grammar in Nashville.

The latest? B.O.B. in Dallas. Watch these two duet on "Airplanes," courtesy of a show at Dallas Cowboys Stadium, now:

Taylor Swift has packed a great deal into this summer. She's gone on tour, she's sang duets with fun guest artists, she's filmed her first fragrance ad.

And she's also spent time writing new songs for an album that will be released in 2012.

Can she give fans a tiny preview of what those singles will be about?

"They're sad, if I'm being honest," Taylor told The New Yorker of the 10 tracks she's penned so far, adding that a recent one she wrote "is about moving on."

But Swift doesn't want to give off the idea that he's depressed. Far from it. The young crooner sounds closer to enlightened, saying she's learned how life is "about achieving contentment" and "you're not always going to be ridiculously happy."

Look for that mature viewpoint to play a major role on her upcoming album. We can't wait to hear it.

We've warned you before, Taylor Swift fans: you really have no idea who might join this talented artist on stage when she plays a concert in your hometown.

In late August, Justin Bieber sang a duet with Taylor in Los Angeles, while Nicki Minaj did the honors one night later.

Over the weekend, meanwhile, Swift played a couple of shows in Atlanta - and was joined by a couple of that city's most beloved musical icons. First up, watch T Swizzle drop a serious beat alongside Usher during a live rendition of "Yeah!"

We adore Taylor Swift. There are few artists more entertaining in concert, as this young superstar brings various guests on stage and covers hits by local stars.

But we wish she'd stick to singing.

THG simply can't get behind celebrity fragrances. They are too transparent of a money grab, with singers or actors (or whatever the heck Kim Kardashian is) slapping their name on a bottle of perfume and watching the proceeds roll in.

They also lead to incredibly cheesy commercials, such as the following ad for Swift's "Wonderstruck." Get ready, readers, for your journey to begin...

NOTE: The Taylor Swift Wonderstruck perfume is available now via THG!

Go see Taylor Swift in concert this summer and you never know who might pop up on stage.

Throughout her Speak Now tour, Swift has surprised fans by singing duets with Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj and, most recently, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney and Andy Grammer! All three joined the young icon for a show in Nashville over the weekend.

Below, you can watch Taylor introduce Grammer to the crowd and then join him for a rendition of "Keep Your Head Up," a song Swift says she listens to any time she's feeling down.

Another tour stop, another fun cover by Taylor Swift.

The artist has been doing her talented thing across North America all summer, playing her usual set of hits for fans in a number of cities, but also making a point to stop and cover a song by a local artist at each venue, as well.

There was Pink and TLC in Philly; and, our favorite, Eminem in Michigan. In Vancouver this week, meanwhile, attendees were treated to Bryan Adams' "Summer of 69." Fun stuff as always:
