When Taylor Swift tersely told press that she would not be attending the MTV Video Music Awards yesterday, Swfities were obvi devastated, but the rest of us just kind of nodded and went ‘well, that makes sense’.
- She probably didn’t wanna bump in to Kim Kardashian-West, after Kimmy called her a and exposed a video of Kanye West calling her and asking for permission to use lyrics about her in his song ‘Famous’ (which Tay had previously denied doing).
- She definitely didn’t want to run into her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris, who she broke up with – but then started dating Tom Hiddleston almost immediately after. Calvin was extremely vocal on Instagram about the end of their relationship, and has defo done his best to imply that Taylor cheated on him with Tom.
- And Taylor certainly didn’t want to be in the audience at the VMAs considering that MTV had given Kanye West 4 minutes on stage to do ‘whatever he wanted’.
Seeing as Ye to chose to do one of his infamous Kanye rants – during which he called out to his ex Amber Rose in the crowd – there’s no wonder Tay would have wanted to remove herself from the situation completely.
And she had every right to be concerned in that regard – Ye did mention the ‘Famous‘ lyric, saying ‘THAT’S WHY I CALLED HER!’ during the speech.
