Taylor Swift Recognized for Good Manners
Taylor Swift was recently honored in the National League of Junior Cotillions' 'Ten Best-Mannered People of 2011' list. The annual list, which applauds the etiquette and class of certain celebrities each year, is also accompanied by the 'Most Ill-Mannered Person of 2011' classification, pointing out the very public foibles of the year and the person who made them.
On this year's 'Best' list, Taylor Swift placed fifth "for inspiring young people with her music and her manners." First in the running was the ever graceful Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton "for the poise and dignity with which she conducts herself in the public spotlight."
Also in the top five were Justin Bieber "for consistently showing courtesy to his fans"; Paula Abdul "for her encouragement to aspiring entertainers"; and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers "for being a positive example for young athletes."
'Good Morning America' host George Stephanopoulos, young 'America's Got Talent' star Jackie Evancho, CNN anchor Erin Burnett, actress Emma Watson and Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow filled out the rest of the top ten list.
Winning this year's 'Most Ill-Mannered' was Kim Kardashian "for making a private matter public and disrespecting the institution of marriage."
