OK guys, now I know that some of you might not agree with this, but I feel like it has to be said.
I don’t think that Taylor Swift was throwing shade at One Direction on Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards. Obviously you’ve all seen the clip of Taylor mouthing, “Shut the fuck up,” while the boys are performing–and if you haven’t it’s after the jump–but let’s look at this closely.
There’s no doubt that that’s what she says, but what makes you think she’s saying it to One Direction?
“To be honest, I really didn’t think I was going to win. I was with Taylor and she held my hand. I was like, ‘Taylor, stop, I’m not going to win.’ I literally said that to her. I’m watching the boys, beautiful One Direction, who are not bad to look at and they said my name. And I looked at Taylor and … it was surreal.”
So you see guys, Selena told Taylor she wasn’t going to win, to which Taylor responded, “Shut the fuck up.” Why would Taylor then pose with Harry Styles if she wanted him to shut up? Exactly.
Also, I have no idea why I feel compelled to defend Taylor. Maybe because she sees into my soul? One may never know. Sound off in the comments with your thoughts on the matter!
