Taylor Swift Was Freaked Out To Perform Kanye Song At VMAs!

| Filed under: Music MinuteCelebrity FeudsKanye WestAwardzTaylor Swift


We don't blame her! That Kanye can be rather unpredictable, to say the least!

Taylor Swift rocked the VMAs last night with her song, Innocent - which was allegedly her response to Kanye West's stage-crashing incident at last year's ceremony - but the country cutie was reportedly freaking out before she went on because she was nervous about how the rapper would react!

A source explains:

"Taylor was a nervous wreck before she hit the stage last night. She knew Kanye was in the building and was terrified and praying that he wouldn't pull another stunt. Taylor rejected Kanye's offer to sing a song he wrote about the entire stage-storming incident and had no idea how he would react to the song she wrote and performed about him."

We're glad she didn't let the fear get the best of her!

Look how everything turned out, bb! And everyone can finally put all of the drama to rest!

Phew! It's about effing time!

    Taylor Swift is acting like Kanye West tried to murder her or cause her bodily harm. OMG get over it. She is is 22 years old and writes like a 14 year old, and has a four note vocal range. PLEASE MAKE HER GO AWAY!

    I'm unbelievably sick of this… get over it

  4. 4

    oh god, who cares?! boo friggin hoo, precious little princess was nervous about the scary black man and what he might do since she didn't want to sing with him. give me a break, who cares about this shit anymore? that song was shit, the vmas were shit for that matter, so boring and this bitch swears like kanye went up and bitch slapped her on stage or something, he just politely snatched the mic from her hands and told the truth…she didn't deserve the award she got….what's the big deal?

  5. 5

    fake its all fake

  6. 6

    get over it already! besides he was right…

    Re: flamingred – you are totally right, she can't sing at all

  7. 7

    Taylor Swift rocked the VMA's with her performance? Apparently you weren't watching the same awards, because she SUCKED major ass. If people are STILL arguing that this girl can sing after last night, they are delusional.

  8. 8

    She proved last night that her 15 minutes are up…girl cannot sing…AT ALL!

  9. 9

    so its ok for her to sing a song based on what happened but she wouldnt let him do it? fuck West should have done it anyways…why he would bother asking her is beyond me.
    like ive said before..and as many others have said. this whole thing made her..which is why shes keeping this fire lit in the first place.

  10. 10

    thats how artists now a days should be!!! fucking brave to be themselves!!

  11. 11

    Re: flamingred – You're an idiot. She is TWENTY, not 22. Where'd you get that from? And if you're so great criticizing other people's vocals, how come I don't see your talentless shit on stage or on TV?

  12. 12

    This was debunked hours ago at GC.

  13. 13

    Re: countryfan06 – lol great argument, so only good singers should be able to criticize her?

  14. 14

    Jesus tapdancing christ! I wish this ugly no talent bitch would die

  15. 15

    Back in the day people use to write songs on war, poverty, sex and drugs. Now days they write songs about arrogant rap stars stealing their microphone from them.

    I thought she was horrible. I've never heard her sing anything good live.

  17. 17

    She is such a cry baby! Last night's performance was pathedic! Last years antics had nothing to do with her and everything to do with Beyonce. Get over yourself Taylor, you can't sing worth a fuck!

  18. 18

    Probably because she knows damn well she cannot sing live.

  19. 19

    Re: countryfan06 – why does getting her age wrong by two years make me an idiot? 20 years old, 22 years old-no difference. She still writes like an 8th grader. I guess you haven't seen me on stage because you don't live near me and you like shit like Taylor Swift.

  20. 20

    Re: countryfan06

    Hey Countryfan….do you think Taylor is country? I think she's more pop.

  21. 21

    Re: countryfan06 – haha-no one agrees with you you tone deaf loser.

  22. 22

    Her song was ridiculous. I think America's love affair with Taylor Swift is now over.

  23. 23

    god she sucks. I am so tired of her. all she does is boo hoo and whine and act really really immature

  24. 24

    Re: Poindexter-X – I think she's more shit.

  25. 25

    seriously, she's an adult, she should start acting like one..

  26. 26

    Taylor Swift is a pretty girl. But she can't sing. Well, she can sing - like a back up singer at Andy William's Moon River Theater in Branson. I hope she lands a part playing Ashley Judd in a made-for-tv movie one day. But she is not Grammy and VMA worthy. There, I agree with Kayne. But ever since the whole OJ and Nicole thing, he ought to know that a big black man cannot sneak up on a pretty little white girl anymore!

  27. 27

    that was ridiculous…
    she needs to get over it! totally team Kanye, at least he admitted he is a douche hahah
    besides, the VMAs disappointed me so much - I thought she would grow up and make a duet with Kanye instead of saying how much of a 'jerk' he was LAST YEAR

  28. 28

    I like her..but my roommate from Vietnam made a huge point that she should have moved on. The performance was very annoying. She can't sing live, i advice people not shell out 200 dollars to see her, she isn't very entertaining but again she is cute. So if you want to say you have seen her..then go ahead. Her performance kinda made me not like her because once again she showed she isn't a strong female. remember how she couldn't stop talking about the break-up with Joe Jonas?

  29. 29

    ok taylor is cute we all get it …. but seriously that song was ridiculous i wanted to smack her

  30. Merab says – reply to this


    U know , the irony is that only now I begin to understand how Kanye WAS RIGHT last year…

    That SWEET NICE GIRL is absolutely TALENTLESS … with that shit she was singing yesterday, SHE shows the lack of brain activity as well…

    She should not have got ANY AWARD last year at all to begin with…

  31. 31

    Kanye may have shown no class but he was right about her just the same… I don't even understand how she became famous in the first place. Is her dad in the industry or something?

  32. 32

    the vmas suck anyway, all it is is a yearly reminder of how far gone and in the shit our mainstream culture is and how insanely weird everybody is who is actually into it and on top of it.

    thank god for subculture because this sh*t is embarrassing as an American artist

  33. 33

    all kanye can do is get dressed up, run around a lot and do and say a bunch of sh*t

  34. 34

    @ Lady_Sacchrine_Sweetness - Yes- her family has lots of money. I've heard (I live in Nashville) that her family sank outrageous $$$$ into her career. And her label head, Scott Borchetta ADMITTED, after her disasterous Grammy performance with Stevie Nicks, that she WASN'T A GOOD LIVE SINGER. Writing is on the wall, but for some reason, she connects with her fans. Also, she "writes" songs in a room with a team of hit songwriters. The question is, how long can it continue?

  35. 35

    Re: perezisjackass You know what, I do think only trained, great singers should judge vocal talent. Most people know nothing about vocal training. She has a good enough voice, she just doesn't have the control from her diaphragm to keep herself from being pitchy. I also would have picked a different key for her to sing.

    OVER“`RATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BOTH OF THEM!!!! YO!!

    You guys are bitches. What Taylor did took more courage than most people could even imagine. If you're saying it's not a big deal you're full of shit. Imagine someone ruining one of the biggest days of your life, pretty sure you'd be upset about it too. Also, at least she actually sang last night. The fact that she's not perfect makes her genuine and what she writes and sings comes from the heart. Writing songs is her form of expression and she was so graceful last night it was unbelievable. If you don't like her, fine but there's no reason to bitch about her. It takes a ton of money for anyone to get into the music industry, but Taylor works really hard for what she has. No worries Tay, your fans still love you and are so proud

  39. 39

    Re: umyeah
    Okay, go back and read what you wrote… "politely snatched the mic from her…" Really? And way to pull the race card. Nowhere in the statement was race ever even mentioned. Apparently, you have no class. Otherwise you would know why it's a big deal. It's not about whether you think she deserved the award or not - she won it. End of story. It was hers. And he should have had enough class to respect her for that. Beyonce did.

  40. 40

    Re: Chinwe Okorie
    Exactly. She makes all of her songs based off of how she's been hurt by guys.

    I'm surprised that she and Demi Lavato haven't made a duet together about Joe Jonas. Maybe Ashley Greene could try her hand at singing, and throw a little something in there too (since apparently according to the blogs, things went sour w/ the JoBro. And hey - I'm sure that Demi could carry them just fine.)

  41. 41

    how is the song about kanye? is he still an "innocent" whatever that means???

  42. 42

    Re: HotZoobCakes
    I think that she is successful, because she's appealing to the largest audience - the tweeners that are out there thinking that they've fallen in love, only to have their heart broken. You know, more juvenile things. She hits the target audience every time - which is why she keeps writing this stuff.

    Maybe she should exchange notes with the Biebs. It's like they've accidentally switched lyrics. Biebs is writing about things that he knows nothing about, while T-Swizzle is writing about things that Bieber should actually be focusing on. (Although now he CAN actually give any girl he choses to stalk whatever she wants…)

    Taylor is a manipulative fraud. Her performance sucked as always, and she needs to get over the kanye thing already. He apologized and the classy thing would have been to just accept his apology and move on. But no, she had to write a song about it and perform it to milk out as much pity and attention as possible. That is very sad and pathetic. She needs to grow up already and stop acting like the victim. If anything, Kanye HELPED her career, and was the best thing that ever happened to her. Her pathetic attempts to use this for more attention and pity now that her album is coming out, is so transparent and sad. She should spend more time working on learning to sing on key instead of begging for pity and attention.

  44. 44

    Re: Ellie1117 – It is Not that big of a deal and it was a year ago. It is time for her to move on. She is milking this Kanye pity cow till the poor cow is dry, and now she looks like a fool. He apologized a million times and her refusal to let it go just shows what a spoiled little child she really it, and she is also vengeful and annoying.

  45. 45

    Re: xoLouieee – Taylor's rich Daddy bought her record contract and sunk tons of money into her career. She didn't have to work hard for anything. She is a rich little spoiled brat who cannot sing to save her life. Unfortunately, millions of her little tween fans buy into what she is selling, and they have no clue that she cannot sing at all. She is about as country as snoop dog, and she is a fraud.

  46. 46

    Re: mscalto – so by that logic I can't criticize a movie because I never went to Juilliard? c'mon think before you post. people who are interested in music listen to a lot of music, therefore we can actually tell the difference between a good singer and a mediocre one. the fact is that Taylor Swift sings very flat

  47. ganza says – reply to this


    she "rocked" the VMAs?? the song was lame, the melody adolescent and boring and her performance so postured that Kanye's message came true before everyone's eyes. you have bad taste in music Perez.

  48. 48

    The lyrics to the song she performed is quite impressive. I thought it would go into talking about herself, but it was all about Kanye and how she forgives him. I love her :)

  49. 49

    of course she was freaked out! she knows she can't sing live! I don't know why the awards show producers let her! Sure, the publicity surrounding this whole Kanye drama was entertaining, but she sucks. Plain and simple. Her songs are whiny and she doesn't know how to use her diaphragm to sustain pitch. That's a pretty simple technical skill most singers have. Clearly someone close to her shelled out a ton of money for publicity and for her label to back her. Otherwise, she'd be nowhere.

    Re: xoLouieee – WOW….your talking like she was a rape surviour or something..lmao he didn't beat her, kill her whole family, rob her, lie on her, rape her or anything like that all he did is take a mic (matter fact she kinda handed it to him soo….) from her I don't know why she or anybody else is so serious about this its old news meaning she and everyone else should've gotten over it idk last year…& Yes I like both of them I love both of their music but honestly she sucked live and kanye song was semi whack matter of fact no one did a good job performing shit so whatever

  51. 51

    I didn't really like the song. But for heaven's sake it's not like she had been molested or anything, the whole insident is stupid

  52. 52

    Re: flamingred – Oh god your so correct I about fell out of my chair laughing at this, its so over. She just didn't want to sing with Kanye because she is so stuck up, mostly all other pop stars would have laughed about it, but Taylor is being a big baby. Even Ga Ga would have just rolled with it. Kanye' song was better anyway.

  53. 53

    sorry Katybug - Gaga canceled the tour her & Kanye already had dates set! It was a big thing for both of them but Taylor came out looking good & Kanye bad. Fast forward Kanye remains original & little Taylor gets even more credit for overcoming the event. Both are not great singers but Kanye is an innovator & visionary while Taylor is a bumpkin.
    Let's have a toast for the douchebags - love you Kanye.

  54. 54

    Ok, Taylor may not be the greatest singer in the world, but I still like her.

  55. 55

    Re: Kbre – this is so true. im over this. yawn.

  56. 56

    i bet she was nervous the bitch cant sing and if she looks at her performances she prolly knows that by now
    i need to be the one forgiving her for that shitty ass performance

  57. 57

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one creeped out by this performance. She didn't "rock the stage"…Kanye rocked the stage, doing his beat and his lyrics in real time. That was sick. She comes out like this broken angel…talking about forgiveness and he's still an "innocent"? Uh, he was drunk and interrupted you at an awards show. He didn't accidentally kill your mother in a drunk driving accident. She acts like she's forgiving a reformed criminal. I'm GLAD he didn't apologize to her on the VMAs! He's the one who got her as far as he is…she should be thankful! She sang that entire song off-pitch. And someone REALLY needs to tell her that the "old Hollywood glamor" look does NOT work for her…red lipstick is hard for anyone to pull off, and IMO it just makes her look ugly! Oh and I won't even go there with how pathetic and immature her lyrics are…GO AWAY
