The red carpet hosts for the 2012 American Music Awards aren’t necessarily in top form tonight, but it looks like “The Middle” actress Eden Sher is taking home the award for absolute worst line of questioning for her interview with Taylor Swift. Sher’s biggest problem? She didn’t ask any questions. Instead, when Swift came up to talk to Sher and Lance Bass about tonight’s awards show, the 20-year-old actress seemingly lost her mind at being in the presence of her pop music idol.
Pretty much everything that came out of Sher’s mouth was cringe-worthy, but some of her best commentary came when she called the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer the “great philosopher Taylor Swift” and gushed that “you can do no wrong.” As for “Red” being a massive success, Sher rationalized that people relate to the album because “it’s so honest and vulnerable and perfect.”
The freakout didn’t end when the cameras stopped rolling, either. Sher took to her Twitter account to share with the world just how much meeting Swift affected her.
“i am sobbing messing up my makeup,” she tweeted. “producers had me sit out interview after Taylor swift because I was hyperventilating and crying #yolo #AMAs”
