Taylor Swift caps off a banner 2010 by landing at the top of Entertainment Weekly‘s annual Entertainers Of The Year list. The mag notes that, at 20, Swift is the youngest entertainer to earn the title (and she’s also the same age as the publication). Over the course of 2010, Taylor won four Grammys, four Teen Choice Awards, two BMI Awards and an American Music Award. She also landed two hit singles (“Today Was A Fairytale” and “Mine”) and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with third album Speak Now after first-week sales of over one million copies. In Taylor’s EW interview, the Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift controversy comes up once again. She discusses her decision to perform “Innocent” at the 2010 MTV VMAs, where ‘Ye was also on the bill.

“I had decided that I didn’t want to perform on the show. Or even go,” says Swift. “Then I woke up in the middle of the night and I realized that I had to, and that I wanted to perform that song.”

Guess that was a good decision? After all, look where Kanye’s name falls on that cover:
