I don't think Taylor was "artificially created". She rose to this level of fame through hard work and talent. Vocally she is about average and her dance skills are questionable, but she writes all of her own songs, people generally like, if not love, her music, and her transition from straight country to pop was seamless and incredible. She deserves everything she has now, and has rarely been into trouble media wise.
Sure there are better singers in the business, but her fans love how real the lyrics of her songs are and besides, she isn't a BAD singer. She works with what she has and deserves credit for that. People shouldn't believe everything the tabloids say or what is said on Twitter. Drama equals publicity stunt a lot of the time.
