Taylor Swift to Receive Highest Honor at Teen Choice Awards
It's no secret that Taylor Swift has changed the face of the young entertainment industry forever, blending country and pop music in a way that had never been done before. Next month at the Teen Choice Awards, the 'Love Story' songstress will receive the highest honor given to nominees: the Ultimate Choice award.
Swift may have four Grammys under her belt, but to be honored as someone who has made "extraordinary contributions to the entertainment industry" and influenced kids everywhere is a whole different ballgame. When she accepts the prize, the 'Mean' singer will join the Ultimate Choice club, which includes fellow artists Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, as well as influential actors Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Fans who want to tell Taylor what she means to them and why she's their Ultimate Choice star can tweet to @TeenChoiceGirl on Twitter. Many of the tweet messages will be shared during the awards show.
Swift is also nominated for the Choice Music: Country Single award for 'Mean,' the Choice Music: Love Song award for her single, 'Mine,' the Choice Music: Break-Up Song award for 'Back to December' and the Teen Choice Red Carpet Fashion Icon: Female award.
The Teen Choice Awards will air on Sunday, August 7 at 8PM ET on FOX.
