Myth busted: you can rhyme “orange,” or in other words, no one is safe from the power of Taylor Swift’s guitar.
She may have platinum records and tons of awards on her fireplace mantel, but Taylor Swift also had a good head on her shoulders.
Catch her exclusive interview with Leslie Stahl on 60 Minutes this Sunday at 7 p.m. EST.
In this video clip, Taylor talks about being a role model and always keeping her fans in mind when going about her day.
“Every singer out there with songs on the radio is raising the next generation, so make your words count,” Taylor says.
The interview is surely going to be a personal one for Taylor. Judging by this teaser, she sounds extremely passionate and articulate. You don’t find that many young stars with such qualities, anymore. So, this will really be an interesting interview to watch.
If you haven’t heard yet, Conan O’Brien will be interviewed tomorrow night on “60 Minutes.”
During the interview Conan discusses how the NBC debacle unfolded, and how he lost “The Tonight Show.” Conan O’Brien says he wouldn’t have done what Jay Leno did to him — and that there was nothing NBC could have done to repair his relationship with the network.
Conan recently announced that he has signed on with TBS to host a late night talk show. Conan will be joined by comedian George Lopez who will have his show follow Conan’s.
The full interview plays Sunday night on “60 Minutes.”
If you can’t wait for Conan O’Brien’s debut on TBS, here is something to tide you over. The late night comedian will be appearing on 60 Minutes in his first televised interview since his late night dethroning.
“He went and took that show back and I think in a similar situation, if roles had been reversed, I know – I know me, I wouldn’t have done that,” O’Brien, says in the interview scheduled to air on ’60 Minutes’ on Sunday.
“If I had surrendered ‘The Tonight Show’ and handed it over to somebody publicly and wished them well — and then … six months later,” he added. “But that’s me, you know. Everyone’s got their own, you know, way of doing things.”
O’Brien eventually left NBC thinking “this relationship is going be toxic and maybe we just need to go our separate ways.” He is set to host a talk show on TBS following his comedy tour.
Mad Men won best television drama, 30 Rock was saluted as best comedy and The Colbert Report got the award for best live entertainment and competition show. 60 Minutes was recognized in the non-fiction television category.
The awards were held at the Hollywood Palladium and honoured television writer Joss Whedon and studio heads Michael Lynton, Amy Pascal and John Lasseter with lifetime achievement awards.
Usually, Mike Wallace interviews others about their life?s trials and tribulations. This time Wallace will be answering the questions for himself.
On a special ?60 Minutes? airing this Sunday at 7 p.m., the 88 year-old Wallace will host a retrospective special on his career and life.

If your money was on Andy Rooney, you make the weirdest bets.
Legendary newsman Mike Wallace had announced plans to retire from CBS’ 60 Minutes.
The confrontational Wallace, 87, said he would leave the show at the end of the current season this spring, but would remain on the payroll as a correspondent.
Wallace helped build 60 Minutes into one of the most respected news shows on television. He has been with the show since its inception in 1968.
“I’ve often replied, when asked, ‘I’ll retire when my toes turn up.’ Well, they’re just beginning to curl a trifle, which means that, as I approach my 88th birthday, it’s become apparent to me that my eyes and ears, among other appurtenances, aren’t quite what they used to be,” he said in a statement. “And the prospect of long flights to wherever in search of whatever are not quite as appealing.”
He added that he would be “available, when asked, for whatever chore CBS …. (has) in mind for me.”
Wallace has interviewed everyone from Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy to Mikhail Baryshnikov and Barbra Streisand.
