The things they say:

“Taylor, you have grown up right before our very eyes and I wanna thank you from a grateful industry for never once humping a teddy bear or gyrating with Beetlejuice… I know that’s not easy.” Country Music Association Awards host Brad Paisley honoured Taylor Swift at the big event in Nashville on Wednesday (06Nov13) for not following Miley Cyrus’ example onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August (13), when she danced with bears and stripped to perform with Robin Thicke, who was dressed in a Beetlejuice-style suit.
