In a Web chat this week, Taylor Swift said she has a "tendency to run from love."

But according to a rumor, the artist is fighting this tendency and giving a new man a chance.

Sources have linked Swift to Toby Hemingway, the actor who makes out with her in the music video for "A Rose to the Fallen." Who the heck is Hemingway?

He's 27 years old and he's British. Major television appearance have included guest-starring roles on CSI: Miami and Bones. He also played a role in the 2006 movie The Covenant.

As she admits herself, Swift has never been part of a successful, long-term relationship. While she's reportedly given Taylor Lautner and Cory Monteith a chance over the last year, neither worked out.

Here's wishing good luck to Toby and Taylor! If they really are together, we hope it goes well.

Following an incredible 2009, Taylor Swift took some time off.

But the singer is ready to take the music world by storm again, and has announced details for her upcoming album:

  • It will be titled "Speak Now."
  • It will be released on October 25.

Why that title? Swift answer the question in a live Web chat today, telling fans it “pertains to the album as a concept, and as an entire theme of the record, more than I can even tell you.”

Taylor added that she's been penning singles for the album since "Fearless" came out in 2008.

She said. “Thankfully, in the past two years I’ve experienced a lot of things that I’ve been dying to write about. A lot of things that I’ve wanted to say in the moment that I didn’t... Track by track, each song is a different confession to a different person.”

The first song off the CD will hit the radio in mid-August. Titled "Mine," Swift says it's about “my tendency to run from love. It’s a recent tendency. Every example of love in my life has ended in goodbye. The song is about finding the exception to that.”

We're just sad that exception didn't include Taylor Lautner.

** In other upcoming album news, David Archuleta has already revealed the released date for his next CD.

You're welcome, Taylor Swift.

In the light of the mammoth, global success this artist has enjoyed over the last year, culminating in over one million copies of her new album being sold already, that's the message Kanye West has for the 19-year old.

The Dazzler

If not for this moment, would Taylor Swift even have a career?!? Kanye West isn't certain.

On the radio radio show "Mojo in the Morning" yesterday, the rapper continued to bring up his 2009 MTV Music Awards incident and made it clear that his rude behavior at that event "spawned" Taylor's popularity. In his view, at least.

Taylor Swift must really love milk.

For the second time in a couple years, this young singer has endorsed the product, clearly believing it does a body good.

Swift says she’s “always seen the ads in the magazines and thought, ‘if that could be me, I would be so lucky!’”

Consider yourself fortunate in this case, Taylor. Now you'll have to excuse us. We need to go drink some milk...

They are two of the most beloved, gifted young stars alive - and they might get along very well in real life.

But this is the virtual world, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Swift, and there are no friends in the world of fashion face-offs!

The actress and the singer each wore the same J. Mendel dress out to public events over the last few months, although Stewart chose the strapless ivory version, while Taylor rocked it in lavender.

This photo of Kristen is also outdated because she's cut and dyed her hair since she walked the red carpet for the premiere of New Moon, but that doesn't mean she can't still take on Swift below. Compare, contrast and vote...

Kristen vs. Taylor

Who wears this dress best?

Darn you, Miley Cyrus! This is the second consecutive day you've done something to force our praise, rather than our scorn.

Yesterday, we gave you props for wearing pants and delivering an important message to fans.

Now, we must acknowledge the role you played last night at Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert For Flood Recovery. The event was held at the Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee and raised money for victims of massive storms in that area earlier this year.

Said Miley, unfortunately bringing the tragedy back to herself: “We have a big farm with crops and I think that was affected a little bit. The scariest thing was not being able to get in touch with people because the phone lines were down."

As seen above, Taylor Swift also played a role in the concert. She said of the flooding:

“For me, the fact that there were members of my band that lost their homes really affected me because those are my friends. Those are the people I call up as soon as we get home. The fact that it affected my band, that’s the most directly it affected me.”

Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood, ZZ Top and Miranda Lambert also performed at the event. Below, check out more photos of Miley and Taylor from it:

Taylor Swift proved, once again, why she's so gosh darn awesome this weekend.

As part of the 2010 CMA Music Festival, the singer spent 13 consecutive hours with fans, meeting them, greeting them and, of course, belting out a few singles for them.

Prior to the event, Swift blogged: “This year I wanted to figure out a way to meet as many [fans] as possible. Thirteen is my lucky number and the 13th is during Music Fest, so I think spending 13 hours with my fans is going to be amazing!”

In actuality, Taylor exceeded this goal. She ended up spending 14.5 hours at the festival, making the dreams of those in attendance come true.

Enlarge more photos of Swift and her fans below. Way to go, girl!

Earlier this week, Taylor Swift took down good friend Kellie Pickler in an epic Fashion Face-Off.

Over 75% of readers polled thought the country music superstar looked better at the CMT Awards than the former American Idol finalist.

Was that result due to Taylor's new hairstyle? Or in spite of it?

Below, we give fans a chance to compare Swift's two looks. No matter which you prefer, both options look much better than what Katherine Heigl did with her hair at the London premiere of Killers. YIKES!

  • Curls
  • Taylor Swift in Red

Which hairstyle looks best on Taylor Swift?

She may not have walked away with any trophies at last night's CMT Awards, but Taylor Swift did receive a lot of buzz at the event.

That's because the young singer showed up on the red carpet without her signature curls. She got her locks straightened out for the ceremony, which didn't sit well with another artist.

Indeed, Kellie Pickler has challenged Taylor to a Fashion Face-Off. She's clearly displeased that Swift tried to upstage her on the red carpet and is asking readers to settle this battle of blonde beauties once and for all.

Are you up for it? Good luck!!!

Who looked prettier at the CMT Awards?

Forget Bieber Fever for a moment.

There's another outbreak in Hollywood: it's the celebrity trend of attending event in a one-strapped red dress.

Although the details differ slightly, Taylor Swift, Eva Longoria and Mary J. Blige were all spotted in recent weeks donning a variation of this style. Would you wear it? What do you think of it?
