    Nashville Gab: Did Taylor Swift Refuse to Give Carrie Underwood a Standing Ovation?

    Did Taylor Swift refuse to give Carrie Underwood a standing ovation at the Grammy Awards?

    So you've probably heard the rumor that there's no love lost between Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift and that the two made a specific request to the people in charge of the Grammy Awards to keep them away from each other.
    Spoil sports.
    After the rumor came to light, Carrie Underwood went on record and said that if there's a fight between she and Taylor she's not aware of it. You can see video of her denying the reports here. The thing is, did anyone really expect Carrie to confirm the rumor even if it was true? Please, she's much more polite than that. I don't know if there's really a feud going on between the two power houses, but if a picture is worth a 1000 words then this picture has a heckuva lot to say.
    A reader sent me this screen shot that she found over on the Examiner website. It's pretty interesting because the screen grab reportedly shows the moments after Carrie finished singing at the Grammys when everyone gave her (and her light up dress) a standing ovation.
    Well everyone except Taylor Swift.
    The picture shows Taylor sitting firmly (but at least politely clapping) while everyone else is on their feet.
    This really wouldn't be a big deal to me if the media hadn't gone wacko over the fact that Chris Brown did the same thing when Frank Ocean won his Grammy Award that evening.
    Oh sure, Taylor hasn't beat up her girlfriend in the past and deserve everyone's scorn like Chris does, but it's still the exact same disrespect paid to another artist. Media double standard much?
    You can watch Carrie's performance below or here.

    Why are we extending this? It just causes problems for Carrie. She already answered and tried to clear everything up. Maybe Carrie lied so everyone will move on. Now her fans are trying to stir it up some more. Do you think Carrie wants to be dealing with this "feud" in the press?

    It could only mean that the POP princess doesn't stand for anyone since no one stood for her. Just saying.

    I sorta disagree with this. I think that everyone knows that Carrie is sweet, honest and caring. She wouldn't hurt a soul if her life depended on it. I don't think the same can be said of Taylor. I think all the article is showing the world the TRUE nature of the "work behind the mind that is Taylor Swift." The article should have show the picture of Taylor sitting down while everyone was standing for Kelly Clarkson on her win too. The camera CERTAINLY panned to Taylor when she was "rockin it" to all the other musicians.

    Besides which, I don't even think TS is CLAPPING. I think that's the girl in red sitting next to her that's clapping but I just can't say for certain from this picture and this angle.

    I hate when artists show any sign of disrespect towards one of their peers. It's just common courtesy to follow suit when a performer is given a standing ovation, IMO; actions speak louder than words in this case.

    One thing I ADORE about Carrie is the fact that she always looks so darn thrilled when she wins, or when one of her peers wins. She knows it isn't about her, and she always seems genuinely happy for anybody else.

    I also 100% agree with the poster who said that Taylor was most likely upset because the spotlight was shinning on Carrie, and not her. Taylor seems to be nice and sweet when all eyes are on her, but her true colors come through as soon as the spotlight is on someone else.

    It's ironic that Taylor has always been painted as the 'sweet, goody toe-shoes' of the industry, and she's the only one who's doing things like this. Ridiculous. At least people are beginning to catch on to it, and people aren't falling for her 'oh so innocent' facade anymore. I've noticed the media hasn't been so kind to Taylor over the past 6 months or so.
