Video: Taylor Swift To Headline Ryan Seacrest's New Year's Special

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Taylor Swift is to perform on  `Dick Clark`s New Year`s Rockin` Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2013` in New York`s Times Square, ABC said Friday.

The network`s Dec. 31 programming will feature a tribute to music television icon Dick Clark, who died in April at age 82."



Dick Clark is in the Great Bandstand in the Sky; I think it`s freaking time that his name was dropped from the title of the show.

The baton has been passed to Ryan Seacrest, and I bet he wants to club someone with it whenever anyone mentions Dick Clark.

Speaking of the dead, the creatively dead Taylor Swift will perform on the program, which guarantees I won`t watch it.

Swift has an irritating habit of basing her songs on her romantic relationships and on her interactions with celebs.

I hope that Jenny McCarthy, who will be emceeing the festivities, will ring in the New Year by giving Swift a good solid kick to the butt. Give girlfriend material for a new song that will unfortunately climb the charts all the way to the top.

The End is Near!
