Sorry, American fans of Taylor Swift. But you most definitely don't have a monopoly on affection for this singer.

A few days after receiving raves for her CMA rendition of "Back to December," the 20-year old traveled across the Atlantic this weekend and performed for attendees at the BBC Teen Awards in London. She sang such hits as “Love Story,” “Speak Now,” and “Mine.”

How did the crowd react to Taylor? See for yourself HERE and then click on the following photos to enlarge shots of her in concert:

On Tuesday night, Taylor Swift became the youngest person in the history of the Country Music Awards to be named Sngwriter of the Year. Not shabby, huh?

That trophy was not handed out on last night's broadcast, however, but that doesn't mean Swift didn't make a major impression on viewers and those in attendance.

The young sensation performed at the piano during the event, serenading the crowd with a rendition of "Back to December," the single allegedly written for Taylor Lautner. Check out a couple still shots from the performance, along with two from the red carpet:

We wonder if Kanye West will take credit for this song's success, too. Below, watch Taylor sing it live for fans. Think she did a good job?

You're welcome, Taylor Swift.

This is the message Kanye West sent on the radio show Mojo in the Morning yesterday, once again bringing up his rude behavior at the 2009 MTV Music Awards and implying it "spawned" the global success Swift has since enjoyed.

Said Kanye:

Without this incident, would Taylor Swift even have a career at this point?!? Kanye West isn't certain.

"I feel like when Taylor was getting all those magazine covers, she was all good then. I feel completely empathetic and sympathize with that moment of her feeling bad, that spawned her to have one million magazine covers and be the most popular artist in the world, but in that moment of her feeling bad, I do feel bad about being the cause of that."

Justin Bieber might be dating Selena Gomez.

But if things don't work out between those two, an even more successful artist has made it clear: she has Bieber Fever.

“I adore [Justin Bieber]," Taylor Swift says in the latest issue of Allure. He’s sweet and awesome... I’ll join his fan club.”

Striking a Serious Pose

Of course, Bieber might wanna be careful because Taylor admits in the same interview that she often puts a quick end to dating arrangements:

“I have a phobia about being in the wrong relationship, so as soon as I establish it’s not the right one, I don’t want to waste their time.”

You tell us, readers: Should Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber date?

Friends say Taylor Swift is a lot more serious about her career these days than she is about Jake Gyllenhall.

But that hasn't stopped these two from taking their quasi romance out west.

  • A Swift Profile
  • Jake Signs

A week after they were initially spotted around New York City, Swift and Gyllenhaal spent Halloween weekend in California. Late on Monday, witnesses saw the pair stop for an ice cream at a shop in Santa Barbara.

"They looked at all the flavors and couldn't decide, so they asked the counter girls for help," a staffer told Us Weekly of the duo, who were described as "happy" and "friendly."

Taylor Swift says she's inspired to write songs based on her dating experiences.

Therefore, we can't help but wonder: what will her upcoming fragrance line smell like? Some kind of Joe Jonas/John Mayer mash-up?

On the Guitar

The talented singer announced plans this week for her own perfume, saying in a statement:

“I have always loved how fragrance can shape a memory... the way certain scents remind you of events and people that are imprinted in your thoughts. Lately, I’ve been having fun experimenting with combining some of my favorite scents, so I’m really excited about working with Elizabeth Arden to develop my own unique fragrance.”

Consumers will have plenty of time to contemplate the perfume. It won't hit stores until the fall of 2011.

NOTE: Taylor Swift Enchanted perfume is now on sale!

Yes, Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal were spotted around New York City this week.

But no matter how cozy the pair looked together, a friend of the singer's tells fans they can stop trying to come up with a nickname for this twosome. They aren't a couple.

"Taylor is very serious about her career," this source told People. "For her, it's all about the career right now. She's not really interested in getting heavily involved with anyone."

  • Performing on Today
  • Posing Outside Ed Sullivan Theater

It's hard to imagine when Swift would even find time to date. She's spent the entire month promoting her new album, "Speak Now," appearing this week on The Today Show and The Late Show with David Letterman, both of which are pictured above.
