Taylor Swift Targets Harlem

10/26/2010 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Swift hit a Target department store in Harlem yesterday -- but she wasn't there to shop ... she was there to sell!

With a giant muscle-bound entourage, Swift rolled in for an album signing event Monday afternoon ... the same day her new John Mayer-bashing CD hit the shelves.

The event turned out OK ... but Beyonce's album signing at Macy's in 2006 was one of the BEST OF ALL TIME!

all you haters need to stop. taylor is very talented and has done so much for being so young. she writes the kind of songs that many other singer/songwriters write, love lost, love unrequited, etc. she also came into the biz when she was a teen. so, of course, her lyrics were going to be juvenile and still will be to an extent. in my opinion, though, she has definitely grown with this album and people need to step back.

furthermore, what freakin' merit is there to if she is attractive or not? if her music speaks to people and it can help them, then she's doing exactly what she's doing and that just proves why she successful.

At least Taylor Swift has a future, unlike Christina Aguilera. I remember seeing Christina in concert back in 2003, 2004. She had the greatest little body. That is now gone. She since then largely has dropped out of site with the exception of a few burlesque type numbers and largely ignored albums. She laughed at Britney, and now look at her. What good is a Beverly Hills pad and all kinds of cash, when you now have to worry about coordinating your kid's parental visits with your ex, along with separate holidays, etc.? And its not like she looks like she did back in 2003 or 2004, either. She has gained weight, and probably is not given the kind of looks in clubs from guys like before, except the ones who remain starstruck by her. And of course, when there is a suspicion that you are lesbo, it never goes down with parents and teenagers, who always can use that against you. That translates into decreased album sales. With the fading looks already, and decreased album/concert sales, I would say she will go the way of a Debbie Gibson or Tiffany, or other like female flash artist. Had she played her cards right, she could have built up her rep and easily beat the Lady Gagas and Katy Perrys of the world. We will forget about her in about 5yrs (only 60 months from now) altogether, with the exception of some music oldies trivia game. Lata babe, you're done

This is another person who I wish would just disappear.

She is not amazing. She is a hack.

No C-Dub, I'm glad I'm not like her or the people who idolize these idiots.

She is 20 years old and let's have a does of reality shall we by examining her accomplishments.

1) wrote a 390 page novel

2) three studio albums, two live albums, one compilation album, two extended plays (EP), thirteen singles, seven promotional singles, one video album, and fourteen music videos.

3)Recent albums: Taylor Swift, released in 2006; Fearless, released in 2008; and Speak Now, released in 2010

4) at least 7 acting credits

5) FIRST county artist EVER TO WIN A VMA award. Eat your miserable heart out Kanye!

The list goes on...

In contrast, at 20 years old TMZ readers are/were still trying to figure out how to find the exit out of the local community college cafeteria. Get real people!

She must be good in the sack if Mayer plowed through it. But selling her record in Harlem? That's like saying Motorhead's playing at the Apollo!
