This is me swallowing my pride, standing in front of you, saying I'm sorry for that night. I go back to December all the time...

As Taylor Swift recently said, the single "Back to December" represents her first apology via song. While the superstar doesn't reveal at whom the words are directed, it's safe to assume she's speaking to Taylor Lautner.

Turns out, not everyone loves Taylor Swift.

Dan Dymtrow is suing the young singer for millions, claiming he's owed money for having signed her as a 14-year old and helping to build her career.

The former manager says he deserves at least 5-10% commission from Swift's sales, but her family conspired to fire him before he could collect.

“They delayed and delayed [the deal] and got rid of my client and subsequently signed [another] deal and kept his commissions for themselves,” says attorney Fernando Pinguelo.

Swift's lawyer counters that Dymtrow's claim is "ludicrous" because the manager never followed through on the mandatory paperwork to assure himself of such royalties.

MTV viewers saw a new side to Taylor Swift at last night's Video Music Awards.

The singer went dark and serious for "Innocent," a song off her upcoming album, "Speak Now." Many believe it was written and performance as a response to Kanye West and the embarrassing incident that took place at last year's ceremony.

Check out the lyrics and rendition below and decide for yourself...

Sang Swift at the event:

"Lost your balance on the tight rope/it's never too late to get it back... Today is never too late to be brand new... Every one of us has messed up too. I hope you remember today's never too late...to be friends with you....You're still an innocent."

Michelle Obama has all the fun. While her husband was busy focusing on a Florida pastor that actually plans to burn the Quran on September 11, the First Lady spent her day in New Orleans.

She was at an event organized by NFL Play 60, a campaign that encourages children to be active for at least an hour everyday and is intended to tackle (get it?!?) the problem of obesity.

Former NFL stars Deuce McAllister and Eddie George joined Obama at Brock Elementary School, as Michelle showed off her moves on the field:

  • TD, Michelle!
  • First Lady Football

She also offered these words of wisdom to the kids in attendance:

“It’s not just enough that you exercise, but you also have to watch what you put in your body. You can’t live on soda and chips and all that. You can’t. Sorry. If you could, I tell you, I would. But you can’t. You’ve got to have vegetables and fruits.”

Seriously, Kanye West is sorry.

The rapper has taken to Twitter to once again apologize for the mess he made at last year's MTV Video Music Awards, when he cut Taylor Swift off mid-speech and said Beyonce deserved an award over her.

"I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that's so beautiful and I want her to have it," Kanye Tweeted this week. "If she won't take it then I'll perform it for her. She had nothing to do with my issues with award shows. She had no idea what hit her."

Kanye the Ass

Should Taylor Swift forgive Kanye West? Sound off below!

Continued Kanye, who will perform at the September 12 MTV ceremony:

"She's just a lil girl with dreams like the rest of us. She deserves the apology more than anyone. I'm ready to get out of my own way. The ego is overdone. Who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down…TAYLOR LOVES RAP MUSIC...I LOVE COUNTRY MUSIC...I'm sorry Taylor."

We know one person who won't purchase Taylor Swift's new album: Chris Robinson.

The Black Crowes lead singer has come out and made his feelings on the award-winning crooner very well known. He told Nylon Guys magazine this week: "I find it embarrassing that adults are like, 'Taylor Swift is very talented.' She's not. She might be cute, but she's horrible."

Robinson, the ex-husband of Kate Hudson, went on to say many popular current acts lack actual talent.

"They have stylists who dress them, they make records with producers  who play a chord into the computer and it all comes out the same... When you have computers doing it all for you... there's no individuality. Singing isn't always about being on key; it's about emotionality (sic)."

THG interns are placing phone calls as we type, trying to determine if Robinson was actually referring to Miley Cyrus instead of Swift. We'll let you know.

On October 25, Taylor Swift comes out with a new album titled "Speak Now."

We've already given readers a look at its cover art, but now we're excited to go even more in depth with the singer. What was the song-writing process like for the CD? What would she consider to be its theme?

Swift answers all these questions and more in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Check out excerpts from it now:

On coming up with new tracks: It’s just such a fun challenge to constantly be writing and constantly be trying to top what you just wrote. It’s one of my favorite games to play - trying to beat what I’ve written last. What I wrote last is something I got really excited about when I wrote it, but I know I could write something better. It’s just a really fun thing to go through.
