Taylor Swift Gives Adele's Golden Globes Win the Stink Eye (VIDEO)

Say What!? 21

taylor swiftYou know, I love it when women support each other. I really felt like that was a theme of the Golden Globes last night -- thanks to Tina and Amy, especially. Yay, us! We're awesome! And when Adele won Best Original Song for "Skyfall" (of course she won, that song was everything), we were all so happy for her. Er, well, all of us except Taylor Swift.

I don't know, maybe she's still in a bad mood from breaking up with Harry Styles, maybe she was drinking whatever grumpy Tommy Lee Jones was drinking. But while Adele gave her acceptance speech, Taylor Swift gave the stink eye. I mean, it's stink eye semi-disguised as a smile. But it's still stink eye, especially when you see it in motion.

Right?!? Not very gracious! Taylor, after getting Kanyed, and then getting Olivia Munned at the People's Choice awards (what was that, anyway?), surely you can appreciate the art of generously applauding someone else's win without qualification. It's what the professionals do. No, you don't really have to be glad for Adele. Sure, you can be inwardly disappointed. But showing it is just immature.

I don't know, maybe it was just her heavy makeup that made Taylor look like she's smirking more than smiling. She couldn't possibly be that surprised that Adele's song would beat hers. It's ADELE. She's kind of undeniable. Adelewinstheend! This story was never going to end any other way. Taylor had weeks to practice smiling and clapping for her like she means it.

And Adele is so cute when she wins, too. She acts like she totally didn't even expect to win (oh PLEASE, she knew she had it locked up!) but we love it anyway. Because everyone loves it when the winner is all "gosh golly, you guys are so nice for giving me this award I totally do not deserve!" And so Adele's adorable aw-shucks speech just made Taylor's bitchface all the worse. Taylor, next time, maybe go easier on the false eyelashes and heavier on the happy-for-you grin; your fans will love you for it.

Do you think Taylor really resented Adele's win, or was it just an unfortunately timed shot?

Wow! You wrote a whole article on taylor swifts smile and turned it into some sort of I don't even know what to call it. You deserve a pat on the back. Btw I don't see what the problem was with how she smiled and didn't see this stink eye. After reading this it seems your the immature one.

I honestly don't know why everyone is still picking on Taylor Swift. She's no longer dating that twelve-year-old English boy.....give the girl a break, she did nothing wrong.

Holy crapola! Taylor Swift has naturally squinty eyes. And she laughed. This girl should just hold herself up in her house the way everyone rips her apart for small facial expressions and an active dating life.

I agree with the previous two comments.
There was no "stink eye" (wtf?) in that video and of course she was disappointed, she just wasn't fake about it like people like u would want her to be. -.-
and honestly, she's still young and her heart pains too when you people devote your lives to fill the eternal internet with bullshit articles about somebody
pathetic low lives
"of course she wasn't going to win it?" how rude is that?! if somebody said something like that to you, how would you feel? please, humans stand for humanity so empathize a little

Huh? I didn't see it at all.

Every one in the picture has the same facial expression but that doesn't make for great headlines. The sad thing is if Taylor won and got as excited as Adel you would call Taylor a fake. This much hate towards some one who you have never met is not normal. SEEK HELP FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH!

I saw it and thought the same thing! Maybe it's how they edit but her body language wasn't very gracious.

I agree with mrsyoung1287, this article was kind of a waste... She didnt look ungracious and nothing was wrong with her smile. Must have been a slow news day huh?
