2009-06-17 - T-Pain and Taylor SwiftSinger T-Pain assisted country star Taylor Swift at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville on Tuesday (June 16), by helping her create the show's opening clip.

T-Pain and T-Swizzle (her rap alter-ego) poke fun at her good-girl image with a video/rhyme where she raps about being gangsta and thuggin'.

"I'm so gangsta, you can find me baking cookies at night / You out clubbin', but I just made Caramel Delight," Swift rhymes.

Swift's gangster rhymes continues about tales of knitting and living with her parents. All of this gets an assist from T-Pain, helping with his trademark auto-tune harmonies.

Pain showed up to the awards ceremony on Tuesday to support Swift, who took home honors for Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year for her hit "Love Story."

She also helped close the CMT Awards by performing "Pour Some Sugar on Me" with the British rock band Def Leppard.
