Rihanna vs. Taylor Swift: Who's Your Pick For Woman of the Year? (POLL)

Taylor Does Bieber!
Swift sings 'Baby' Watch »

It was a big Tuesday for women in music as Esquire magazine deemed Rihanna the Sexiest Woman of the Year, and Billboard honored Taylor Swift their pick for Woman of the Year.

This got us thinking: who is your pick for Woman of the Year: RiRi or T-Swift? Cast your vote in the poll and defend your decision in the comments!

Completely naked and covered in mud and greenery, RiRi lived up to her sexy title on the cover of Esquire. She's also not ashamed of her occasional lap dances onstage. She told the publication: 

"The way I pick the person is, whoever I feel doesn’t take themselves too seriously, or who I think would be majorly embarrassed about it. Like these old men… it’s hilarious."
Meanwhile, Taylor is also living up to her honor and will be recognized at the 2011 Billboard Women In Music event set for Dec. 2 in New York City. In addition to having five Grammy Awards under her belt, the 21-year-old country crooner's Speak Now is a five-time platinum album!

 Well deserved honors ladies!!

    I'm gonna be totally honest here ... This is not a very shocking comparison considering they are about the same age .. There are surely things for both, but for the younger audience, I have to say Swift, even though I honestly think her songs are a bad influence on young girls too, because she spreads that stereo-type Love and break-up songs that makes younger girls obsessed with boys . I understand that this is a reflection of her mentality and feelings. Another thing is that she indirectly promotes some kind of bullying; she is making her career out of aiming back at her exes .. embarrassing them in public with the kind of message : " I win now , I get the last word" which affects their career then brilliantly promotes her albums with coding a clue about them in the lyrics sheet in her CD.. which worked amazingly so far ;) .. I think I took it too hard on her this time ... other than that she looks like a nice person but I just had to be totally honest. Now to Rihanna .. LOL .. again being honest; her music and outfits is something I can't even talk about xD .. themes or music videos o_O that is not for a person like me .. But I have to say, vocally she is OUTSTANDING!!! I know she gets a lot of criticizer saying she can't sing live .. Well I can surely say they are wrong .. or maybe biased to other singers . She is definetely one of the best singers right now and in that matter I don't think there is a comparison between her and Swift .. Swift has a kind of common voice and she can get some high notes :) and I enjoy her in the song like " Long Live" so overall good , but Rihanna is as I said .. a very unique voice and she seems like she can sing without that much effort .. Overall I'm very impressed with her voice and I would listen to her again if she sings about more appropriate themes :) ..

    There are many talented people in the caribbean but rihanna turned out to be one of them and was lucky too.she inspire so many people me for example but when she appear on stage half naked what message is she bringing out to these young girls who revere her,I'd rather taylor swift 100% because her songs come from her heart and is a better role model.

    Rihanna. Just because of those amazing thighs. Her thighs are so huge! I’m pretty sure she could crush a man to death between those thighs. It would be one of the most pleasant deaths a man could die.

    Taylor Swift, definitely. Obviously part of it would have to do with the fact that I look up to her and she's one of my favorite singers. But I love Rihanna, too. She's really talented. It's just when I think about the way that celebrities have affected people's lives, I think Taylor has affected people more in the way that she's an idol for people all over the world. I don't think as many girls look up to Rihanna as Taylor, because she's older and she's not as appropriate for young girls. But I love them both, so whoever won would be okay, really (:

    It is unfortunate that Taylor Swift has still got this same dry eternal hairstyle and won’t straighten her hair. She could be so hot if she wanted to.
