The Academy of Country Music Awards are on tonight for those of you who aren’t interested in Mad Men but are interested in a slew of good-looking southerners belting out tunes and wearing lots of rhinestones. Â The bad news? Â Blake Shelton has already warned his co-host, Luke Bryan that if they tease of make fun of Taylor Swift at all during tonight’s show, they’d better be prepared for “an onslaught of hatred from Taylor Swift fans.”
I can’t imagine how anyone would have the balls to make fun of T.Swift after the grave error Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made during the Golden Globes. Â She was so pissed to be the butt of a joke that she totally earned being the butt of, the camera didn’t even cut to her reaction! Â Gasp! Â Plus she acted like a real B (and that doesn’t stand for just “bitter”) when she complained about it toÂ Vanity Fair. Â So I’m not surprised if Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan are terrified of the Swift Monster.
Oh, and in case the Fey/Poehler shaming wasn’t enough to scare them enough so they refrain from any monologue jibes, here’s Taylor’s incredibly charming reaction to Adele winning a Golden Globe that Taylor was also nominated for. Â Picture it: Adele is adorable and lovely and everyone is on their feet, applauding her win while looking at her so lovingly! And then there’s T.Swift:
Â That pained, forced, semi-stink-eye would be enough to convince me that I’d better lay off the Swift jokes tonight if I were hosting the ACM awards… unless I wanted to be turned to stone and flooded with poorly spelled Twitter death threats for the rest of the week.
