    Taylor Swift received the Hal David Starlight Award, which honors up and coming songwriters. While the blonde beauty has been heavily criticized for her singing voice, which people say is heavily doctored and treated with studio tools and trickery, her songwriting skills cannot be denied, apparently.

    Swift's friend, that guitar playing cad John Mayer, presented the award to the singer. "She's no accident," he said. "You could put her in a time machine in any era and she would have a hit record. Don't confuse everybody loving one thing as hype. Sometimes that's everyone agreeing that it's fabulous." Wow, Mayer may be an awful boyfriend –remember what he said about famous exes Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson in Playboy- but he certain is a good friend who can spew tons of hyperbole. Wait, is he dating Swift on the down low?

    What is your take on Taylor Swift? Can she sing? Is she overrated?
