Taylor Swift Gives a Very Suspicious Explanation for Her F-Bomb at the VMAs

Say What!? 27

taylor swiftA scorned Taylor Swift directing that famous "Shut the f*** up" comment to her ex Harry Styles is much better story than the one that Team Swift would now like to have us believe. Her buddy, Ed Sheeran, actually held a press conference a few days ago to clear up this whole, big, widely publicized, misinterpreted misinterpretation. It sounds so made up. He could have come up with something much better.

If you remember, Selena Gomez and Taylor were sitting next to one another as Harry Styles and One Direction were announced to present, and after Selena whispers something to Taylor, Taylor had the misfortune to be caught on camera mouthing, well you know. Of course everyone assumed they were saying something catty about Styles, but apparently, it wasn't about him at all. Supposedly.

According to Sheeran, Selena whispered that she thought Miley Cyrus was going to win the award for Best Pop Video (which of course she didn't, Selena did). To which Taylor responded with the F-bomb comment, because that's how young hip people tell their friends and loved ones, "oh, no, I don't believe a word of that, I totally support you" these days.

Like when I'm sitting with my friend and she tells me she's not sure she has what it takes to apply for that executive level job at her company, I turn to her and say "Shut the f***k up."

Or when my son comes home from school and says he thinks he failed the science test that he studied a week for, I reply: "Shut the f**k up." No, I don't really, and that's not at all what I'm thinking. But I'm not Taylor Swift.

It just sounds strange that Selena would pick the exact moment that Harry Styles was taking the stage to talk about Miley Cyrus. That and Swift's whole "I Knew You Were Trouble" teaser about who the song was really about. Sounds like someone is still just a little obsessed.

Anyway, who would have thought we'd all still be talking about Taylor Swift and her F-bomb! The VMAs are SO last week.

Do you find Taylor Swift's explanation a little .... suspect?

It would not be gossip if the press did not make it up; With Swift the truth is not juicy enough.

Well One Direction was presenting the award Selena was nominated in so that's why she mentioned Miley winning the award over her.

All this random Taylor hate is much more suspect. Is Cowell keeping the blogs on his payroll? I thought the version ed gave seemed like the most likely one from the start. Taylor was facing Selena when she said that...harry was not talking at the time- that was all added by thirsty gossip. Taylor was the only one clapping when 1D won their award (while others were booing). Taylor and Harry hugged and talked before the show. I mean come on..

Actually the original rumor is much harder to believe than this. I do believe this is really what happened based on Selena's reaction. Plus from the clip I saw, Harry wasn't even speaking when Taylor said that.

It's about along the lines of what I thought was happening. It seemed out of context.


Does it really matter? She said "fuck" ,big whoop. Stop making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Ed did not have a press conference. This video was taken by my daughter at a meet and greet in Portland Oregon . Before the Taylor Swift concert at which Ed Sheeran was opening.
