Oh, Taylor Swift! You sassy minx, you!!

Accepting the VMA for Best Female Video, our angel of revenge made sure to torch the ex who helped her win the Moonman via inspiration.

Rocking the biggest balls of the night, Swifty said:

"I want to thank the person who inspired the song, who knows exactly who is he, because now I have one of these."

But don't worry, Directioners… it couldn't have been Harry Styles as she wrote I Knew You Were Trouble way before Haylor was a twinkle in our enthusiastic, tearful eye.

So place your bets, Perezcious readers!! Who was the cannon aimed at?

John Mayer?? Jake Gyllenhaal?? Someone else??

Unless of course it was about the first time she and Harry connected, in the Spring of 2012! Hmm…

    Then she wonders why people make fun of her for writing songs about ex-boyfriends.

    No longer a Taylor Swift fan. She's changed and not in a good way. Extremely rude and uncalled for.

  3. 3

    And people dare to compare this classless GIRL to other mature female performers. She is a narcissistic, egotistical twit.

    it is about him though! they dated the first time last spring(ish) and he cheated on her with some model or something I think…. the guy in the music video has the same "ship" tattoo as harry! but then again you are perez and are really the royalty of celebrity gossip….

    Grow up Taylor.

    Plot twist: It was Louis. Just look at him around 1:10-1:18.

    Thank you for putting this on here, Perez dear.
    I didn't watch - didn't care to. Although I wanted
    to see Taylor's acceptance speech and Katy Perry's
    performance. Taylor looks absolutely fabulous!

    Wasn't there a story recently about her talking to Ed Sheeran about Harry and her apparently telling him she wanted to move past it? Clearly she was trying to make herself look mature, but she's a little 12 year old and she always will be.

  9. actually says – reply to this


    it was about Harry.. they dated for a little bit after the 1D boys first performed on the KCA's. Then Harry was spotted kissing emma ostilly. Harry made a public statement about her dancing to their song during the KCA's. The hidden message in her lyric book.. "when you saw me dancing" — she also pretty much confirmed it at the Brits. sooo…

    showed her true colors tonight, what a b*tch

  11. Clare says – reply to this


    It's funny because she has no class. At least when One Direction was presenting and Selena won, she went up there and greeted them all like a mature adult. Taylor needs to take some lessons.

  12. Guest123 says – reply to this


    Lol, now John Mayer is going to write her another angry email. X)

  13. 13

    Urgh…no class twig.

  14. mandy wingo says – reply to this


    Regardless of her personality these days, I adore her music. Great song.

  15. PAULA says – reply to this


    she's the BEST

  16. dana says – reply to this


    she won!!!! she deserved it.

  17. Brooke says – reply to this


    I think everyone is starting to get tired of the whole "woah is me" crap she keeps pulling. She's slowly showing her true colors and how truly rude she is.

  18. leo says – reply to this


    you guys are so dramatic. you arent judges. leave your lives and leave the girl alone.

  19. Marta says – reply to this


    Dear Perez. You j u s t wrote an article stating that the song was indeed about mr. Styles. Get your facts straight.

  20. 20

    I was SO hoping for either Pink or Demi to win this category. UGH. I am so sick of this talentless, entitled and childish bitch.

  21. danalex says – reply to this


    this song is about john. And i'm so happy for her

  22. nikkkk says – reply to this


    She just keeps getting more pathetic. Just a hoodrat bitch in designer clothing.

  23. Lan says – reply to this


    Oh please, all she talks about is her love life. She's needs to stop fronting and and just admit that she's a fucking maneater. She can't right unless she breaks up with someone.

  24. R says – reply to this


    Doesn't matter who it's about. It's rude.

  25. namers says – reply to this


    Where's Kanye when you need him?

  26. Dollymadison says – reply to this


    The beauty of it is that no one knows who the song is about, do we? It could be a guy she dated when she was in high school, really. She a freshman, he a senior. As far as any idea it was Harry, that's silly, he's a boy toy, nothing dangerous. Anyway, salutes to Tay on her win!

  27. 27

    What a sad pathetic immature rude dimwhit. She, her family & her fans should be ashamed. She should be reprimanded for what she said and how she acted at the Vmas. If she were my daughter I would put her over my knees and beat her ass. Dumb little B. Karma Taylor. you can be brought down just as quickly as you went up.I despise her more now than I ever did.. One Direction you guys have some class she could learn from you.

  28. Shelby says – reply to this


    It is about Harry. They had a fling the spring before she dated Little Kennedy. And the code in her booklet is "When you saw me dancing" because they met at the KCA's when she was dancing to him performing. It's sad how much I know about this. A lot is from reading Perez so I'm surprised the writers wouldn't know that.

  29. 29

    yeah where was Kanye with his comment we really needed him up there

  30. Kamryn says – reply to this


    Yes ! It could have been Harry cause remember last year at the kids choice awards, she expressed her interest in getting to know him, and she had a crazy crush on him and he started dating someone else and they had news articles out about how heartbroken she was that she liked him and he dated someone else

  31. mary says – reply to this


    Is about Harry she say in the brits, What a silly child

  32. bea says – reply to this


    Unclassy bitch. At least Harry brushed it off.

  33. 33

    Re: leo
    she brings on the drama nobody else but her

  34. MB says – reply to this


    Re: danalex – Is it really? As if she still uses John for material, still. STILL…. Or it's about Harry, and she just made her what 8th nasty award acceptance speech/performance dedicated to him?

    Leave the kid and John Mayor alone, Taylor. Sooner or later you'll have to get over them and move past it. It was a long time ago. These boys want nothing more to do with you. Grow up (I didn't watch it, or that video, but Swift and most other pop stars are boycotted in my life, so…. I get the jist of it… anyway. It's very predictable)

  35. 35

    I feel like if Taylor Swift would said "bless you" to someone, she would be criticized. I mean, I don't get the hate. I don't get the hate on either side. It could be about Harry, it could not. Only people who know are Taylor, and the boy she talked about. You know what its about the song, she worked hard on her album and she deserved to win just like anyone else. Maybe it was a little uncalled for, but you know what, the things you guys are saying are a little uncalled for. Shes never hidden the fact that she writes about her relationships. Why is a shocker to people know on her "red" album? If you didn't like her music before that's another thing. Please someone explain the hateful and cruel things that people are saying to one another, over someone else's relationship.

  36. Lady Belle says – reply to this


    One Direction fans over-reacting over something so silly, they say "Harry" is mature, than why can't his own fans be mature? Oh the hypocrisy in this is hilarious! She didn't say crap, I believe it was aimed at John Mayer, because "I Knew You Were Trouble" wasn't written when Harry & Taylor were dating, the guy in the video looks like a "John Mayer" as well along with the facial features, it's not about Harry, stupid fans. The VMA's is crap, the show was boring, the performances was horrible and people making drama for no reason, pathetic. I'm glad for Taylor, I have respect for her along with One Direction, but please remember, the One Direction members were making fun of swift during one of their concerts, can't say crap.
    And there is no supporting proof that Rihanna called Taylor Swift a "whore" it's some shitty rumor made by a desperate fan, pathetic.

  37. ok_then says – reply to this


    Really now… Isn't this attitude from Taylor Swift about trashing ex bf's of hers on music award shows getting a bit tired? Why is this acceptable in the first place? If a male artist did this repeatedly would we laugh about it? This is sexism plain and simple. There is no male artist that is known for writing songs about exes and going on awards shows and trashing them so why is this considered normal behavior coming from Taylor Swift? It is nothing more than trailer trash behavior.

  38. Matt says – reply to this


    Congrats Taylor your the best :)

  39. Completely Agree says – reply to this


    Re: ok_then – I wonder how funny she'll find it if one of her exes decides to do a tell all book. No man could get away with this behavior. America's sweetheart has turned into America's biggest brat.

    That last line was so unnecessary and childish…grow up Taylor. The whole world knows that the song is about Harry Styles, you don't have to remind us. Let the work speak for itself and show some class when accepting an award. It was a great acceptance speech till that last classless line. She comes across very bitter. This would've been the speech for Kanye to interrupt, lol.

    my co-worker's sister makes $87/hr on the internet. She has been out of a job for seven months but last month her income was $18047 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read more on this site…

  42. Jess says – reply to this


    I actually like Taylor, but she's got to stop doing this and grow up. I mean she's almost 24 a grown ass woman and this is just too highschool

  43. flz says – reply to this


    BOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHERE'S KANYE!!!!!!!!!?

  44. mlyjn says – reply to this


    Funny how she has complained in the past about people talking and joking about her love life, then she goes and says this. If you want the talking to stop, then stop drawing attention to it. Simple as that.

  45. AEM says – reply to this


    In a magazine, she said it was about Harry when she met him at Kids Choice 2012. She said it was easy to channel her anger during BRIT Awards performance because the person it is about is sitting 20 ft away. She dissed Harry at VMAs to let people know that she HASN'T forgiven him, contrary to tabloids.

  46. 46

    Such a rude little girl. One of those girls you just want to slap the crap out of…but, violence is not the answer…lol

  47. C says – reply to this


    Her music is soulless and all she can do is write songs about past relationships. Hey, Taylor, maybe you'll win a more serious award if you come out with a song called, "Maybe It's Me Who's The Problem."

  48. keke says – reply to this


    Niall said 'Horiible,I f*cking told you so

  49. Z says – reply to this


    Used to be a big T-Swift fan, not anymore. The way she acted was completely immature,rude, and not necessary. She didn't deserve the award and her music is all about the same thing.
