Taylor Swift is pretty much every person on the planet's choice.

The singer continued her award-winning ways by nabbing Favorite Female Artist at last night's People's Choice Awards. But there's one honor Swift has not walked away with yet:

Champion of a Fashion Face-Off against Demi Lovato.

She has the chance today, however, as these young singers are matched up against one another. Each looked pretty on the red carpet, but only one can be crowned the winner. You tell us who it should be...

Who was prettier on the red carpet?

Taylor Swift had an incredible 2009. But the year will end on a down note for the singer, or at least for fans of her love life.

Sources confirm that Swift has put the brakes on her relationship with Taylor Lautner, as an insider tells Us Weekly "he liked her more than she liked him."

We've been there, T. Laut. We came to the same realization a few years ago about Jennifer Love Hewitt.

While neither Taylor ever went on record with an official acknowledgment of this relationship, both sides hosted Saturday Night Live over the past couple months and referenced the other in a cute manner. They were also spotted frequently together.

However, "it wasn't really developing into anything, and wasn't going to, so they decided they were better as friends," a source said. "There was no chemistry, and it felt contrived."

This insider claims the relationship pretty much ended when Lautner flew to Nashville for Swift's birthday party on December 13. It was an example of the lengths he often went to for the singer, yet she "didn't travel much to see him," the friend says.

While Swift is still smarting from her 2008 break-up with Joe Jonas, who dumped her in an infamous 27-second phone call, the future looks somewhat bright for these Taylors.

"They plan to stay friends," says the acquaintance.

In 2009, we scoffed at Taylor Momsen's resemblance to a raccoon.

We mocked Miley Cyrus for... everything she did.

We bowed in awe at the talents and success of Taylor Swift.

But while this trio of young beauties may seem as different as the seasons, they all followed one fashion trend in 2009: the donning of lace tights.

Below, the self-absorbed 17-year old; award-winning singer; and Gossip Girl star all show off this look. What do you think of it?

The Associated Press has followed the lead of The Hollywood Gossip.

As we countdown the top celebrities of 2009, the AP has leaped directly to its top spot: its named Taylor Swift the Entertainer of the Year.

“I am so honored and so excited,” Swift said after receiving the honor, which was voted on by newspaper editors and broadcast producers  “This was so unexpected, and I could not be more grateful.”

Last year, Tina Fey won the award. In 2007, it went to Stephen Colbert. Why did it go to Swift this time, who sits at number-seven in THG's year-end rankings?

“In a time of ‘made’ musicians, she writes her own songs and has her own sparkly style,” said Danielle Kiracofe, entertainment editor for the Stars and Stripes military newspaper. “She’s managed to do all of this with grace, class and poise — and without uttering a swear word, dancing on a pole or wearing next to nothing. At the age of 20.”

Trophy Kiss

It's worth noting, once again, all Taylor accomplished in 2009:

  • She headlined a sold-out tour across 52 cities;
  • Won Album of the Year at the Country Music Awards;
  • Earned give American Music Awards, including Artist of the Year;
  • Hosted Saturday Night Live.

Heading into 2010, Swift is nominated for eight Grammy Awards and co-stars in the movie Valentine's Day, where she makes out with boyfriend Taylor Lautner. Could she actually top 2009?

“I love to plan 20 steps ahead of myself, and it’s really fun competition game that I play with myself, trying to top what I’ve done last," she said. "For [my] next record, that’s all that I’ve been thinking about, that’s all that my mind has been fixated on for the last year, and it’s all that I’m going to be thinking about for this next year.”

The movie Valentine's Day looks like an adorable romantic comedy.

From the director of Pretty Woman, the film stars pretty much everyone in Hollywood, from Jessica Biel to Jessica Alba; Julia Roberts to George Lopez. Just take a look at the multi-faced poster below:

Focusing on "a day in the life of love," Valentine's Day also stars Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift, as the rumored couple got close on set and has reportedly taken its on-screen romance away from the cameras.

Neither side has officially confirmed the relationship, but Lautner referenced it during his funny Saturday Night Live monologue.

Check out the Valentine's Day trailer below and keep an eye open for a scene that likely mirrors real life: Taylor and Taylor totally make out!

Lucas Till is not one to kiss and tell. At least not when he's actually dating someone famous.

But talk to the young actor months after a relationship fizzles out and he's happy to go into detail about it. Case in point:

In an interview with MTV last week, Till revealed that he dated Taylor Swift soon after appearing in her video for the single "You Belong With Me."

"We dated for a little bit. But, there was no friction because we were too nice," he said. "Most relationships work out cause you get along and then you don't, and then you make up and its passionate, and with us I really just liked her as a friend. That’s the only reason that didn't work out."

That's confusing logic, but an interesting admission.

Till also co-starred with Miley Cyrus in the Hannah Montana movie and was rumored to be dating her in mid-2008. Asked which of these beauties is a better kisser, the actor replied:

"I chose Taylor Swift [in August] and I'm gonna stick with that answer."

Ouch. Tough break, Miley. You might wanna keep Liam Hemsworth away from Taylor in that case.

People magazine has recognized Taylor Swift with her second-biggest honor of the week.

First, THG editors named the superstar the seventh most important celebrity of 2009.

Now, the aforementioned publication has placed Swift on the cover of its special year-end issue, dubbing her one of the 25 most fascinating individuals of the past 12 months. Replied Taylor, when asked about her life these days?

"It feels like this ongoing dream."

It's pretty much impossible to dislike Swift, considering she sounds more mature and more grounded the more successful she becomes.

"You can stay the same person, even if everything around you changes," she tells the magazine. "I would like to think everybody out there isn't just waiting for me to trip and fall and stumble out of a club drunk."

Also honored by People in the issue: Kate Gosselin, Sandra Bullock, Jacyee Duggard and Robert Pattinson. It's an eclectic group. But, hey, it's been an eclectic year!

As the calendar gets ready to flip over to 2010, The Hollywood Gossip staff is looking back on the year that was. We're excited to present out 10 finalists for our prestigious, Third Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These A-listers have given us their best, their worst, their naked pics (sometimes) and their hysterical, off-the-wall antics (often). It's time for THG to pay tribute to their unique greatness.

Last week, we continued the 2009 countdown with Carrie Prejean at number-eight. (No, it wasn't that low because she's Christian.)

Today: Celebrity of the Year finalist #7 … Taylor Swift!

On Top of the World

When the 2009 kicked off, Swift was a modestly successful singer on the rise. Her fan base was mostly comprised of the same tweens that screamed their lungs out for Zac Efron, Robert Pattinson and other celebs that were a notch below mainstream status.

Fast forward 12 months, however, and the numbers speak for themselves:

  • Swift's "Fearless" was the best-selling album of 2009;
  • She was named Artist of the Year by Billboard Magazine;
  • She won four Country Music Awards;
  • She won five BMI Awards;
  • She's been nominated for eight 2010 Grammys.

Aside from her trophy haul, Swift also made headlines this year when she was rudely cut off by Kanye West at the MTV Video Music Awards. She handled the incident with maturity and grace, earning many new fans in the process.

Taylor concluded the best year of her life with a widely-praised Saturday Night Live hosting gig; and by entering into a rumored relationship with Taylor Lautner.

The only downside to 2009 for Swift? She's guaranteed that 2010 will be a let down in comparison!

Might we honor the beauty with a spot on our Celebrity of the Year countdown? You'll find out soon!

Taylor Swift might have millions of dollars, countless fans and a slew of award nominations, but she's just like me and you.

The singer recently posted on her Facebook page that the holiday season is her "favorite time of year."

"I love everything about this time of year, but mostly the way that people find ways to be with the ones they love," she writes. "And I love sweaters. Everyone is wearing sweaters right now."

Can we get back to the part about ones you love, Taylor? Was that a hint at Taylor Lautner?!?

On Friday night, Swift will perform in New York City at Z100's Jingle Ball. It's the ideal way to cap the best year of her life, which includes eight Grammy nominations.

"[On the phone] I remember hearing the screaming voices of the drummer and the bass player and the mixers and publishers who helped put this album together," she said of hearing that news. "He put me on speakerphone, and we all screamed together. I couldn't stop saying 'I love you' to them, just like I can't stop saying 'I love you' to you."

Awww, T Swizzle. Right back at ya!
