One Direction Defends Harry Styles Against Taylor Swift's "Lame" VMA Jab

taylor swift harry styles vma 2013 jab

Oh, Haylor… the ship continues to sink!

Despite taking a cordial-appearing photo with Harry Styles, VMA viewers still got the impression that Taylor Swift isn't quite over her break-up with the One Direction babe.

Not only did she seem to mouth 'shut the f*ck up' during 1D's time on stage, she then went on to call out the ex who inspired I Knew You Were Trouble in her acceptance speech for Best Female Video.

While many had previously thought said song was about Jake Gyllenhaal, others began wondering if she could have written it about Hazza and their first fling from earlier in 2012.

Either way, her actions were addressed by Harry's fellow band-mates on the red carpet of their New York premiere for This Is Us.

When asked of their thoughts on Swifty's reaction to their stage presence, Louis Tomlinson said:

"We were a bit confused. We thought she was actually calling out Niall so the whole thing's a bit confusing."

As for future underwear model and actor (in our fantasies) Liam Payne, well, he wasn't havin' it! Not only did he confirm that he thought her behavior was 'lame,' he told reporters:

"I just thought it was a bit not needed. I mean, you just won an award, it's like, concentrate on yourself!"

Whew! Looks like the lines have been drawn and crossed!

We wouldn't bet on a charmed third-time for Haylor, readers. This ship may still be sinking, but it's rotten to the core. That's for sure!

We'd still love to see pieces of it in museums, though. LOLz!

    Louis is an obnoxious asshole in general though in many things he says and does in interviews. He was rude about Taylor when asked about her and Harry on the Jingle Ball red carpet. I think he's very judgmental and possibly just didn't like Taylor at all. Niall used to really like her so no idea what has him in such a twist. Maybe they know Harry and Taylor are on good terms again and that is pissing everyone off? I honestly wouldn't be surprised. Maybe they didn't like the attention Haylor got.

    Liam makes me laugh he don't want people hatin on his Gf but still say something to make others feel like it's ok to hate on Taylor(Harry's ex).I used to like him and thought he was nice now he just piss me off.

    Taylor DID NOT diss Harry at the VMAs! I Knew You Were Trouble was written before they even dated

    108

    The fact that Louis and Liam said those things about Taylor makes me think that Harry's really not okay with her after all. He may speak nicely about her on the camera but maybe he doesn't speak good things about her web the cameras are gone and that's why Liam and Louis are so defensive.

    Re: Haley

    I'm not going by articles alone. I'm going by what she, herself wrote in her album booklet as well as what she said (well, an authorized "source") in the Vanity Fair article as well as an interview where she said right out that she performed the song right in front of the guy it was geared toward (at the Brit Awards)….

    Re: MB – TAYLOR? BITCH IS THIS YOU?! Lol. Hell no I didn't read any of the 77 comments before me. Ain't nobody got time for that. If you're a fan, then I guess I'm not. Because I don't follow her life that deep. I only remember her song coming out when they just broke up. Taylor doesn't seem like the type of chick to give you a second chance after writing a song like that. She seem like a no bullshit type of girl, but if you say so. I think she's cool. I like her as a person. Like her songs. But i don't buy her stuff. I like giving everyone the benefit of the doubt. I don't want to believe she's such an asshole. She's young, he's not the last man on earth. Why is he still getting such a reaction from her. MOVE ON. GROW UP.

    Re: Chooch – I totally agree with you. I really don't see an innocent girl in her. If I did, I wouldn't call her out. She's not who she wants people to think. It's obvious, c'mon people

    112

    Ok Taylor really needs to get a bridge and get over it. Its been like months now. Seriously! Im glad you won the award but now its time to be mature and act your god damn age Taylor! And the 1D boys shouldnt have commented. Thats only going to fuel Taylor. They should just leave this "Haylor" thing alone now. Cmon its been over for a long time now!

    Re: Haley – you sound pretty delusional to me if you can actually say someone is uneducated because her point of view makes perfect sense. what's wrong with you all these days? it's easy for you to sit behind your screen and say someone is uneducated when they start a comment with "Bitches and gentleman" ! ffs!

    QRe: Sara – you idiot there were four billion hints in the video with the ship tattoo being super obvious they had a fling March last year before they actually dated and she pretty much confirmed it 3 or 4 tomes. John,Joe whatever wasn't even there it doesn't matter that was an extremely disrespectful thing to do. shes 20 not a fucking preschooler. Eww she's 23 an dissing a 19 year old.RREAL MATURE.if you rewatch the video you see theres a t sound she's not mouthing so she did say shut the fuck up it was obvious if she said sorry for my arm Selena wouldn't have looked around awkwardly.

    116

    Re: Shutupdumbass – You dumbass -.- Taylor admitted to the song being about harry and there were 4 billion hints the one most obviously being the ship tatoo but you Swifters have your head so far up Taylor's ass you didn't notice. Her and Harry had a fling march of last year before they actually dated. Put the song into effect and there you go. She was obviously dissing the person gahh. Your a swifter posing as a Directioner I bet. I ain't cutting a girl who disrespects her exes not once but NUMEROUS TIMES.

    117

    Re: MB
    Yeah, well even if it was about Harry, the boys are CONSTANTLY dissing Taylor, bringing her up or making fun of her all you have to do is watch a few interviews to realize that. And I love One Direction, I'm a Directioner but I'm not a crazy Directioner if you know what I mean! ;)

    Honestly we all just need to let it go! Harry and Taylor went for mocktails after the VMA's obviously they're doing good so we just need to leave it like that and if Harry is upset he'll say so and then you can go arguing. But really when Harry cheated on Taylor was it a big deal? no. It was ONE rumor in a whole week.. The past day has been filled with 6 articles sporting LIES trying to make Taylor look bad and honestly if they worst that she can do is ”diss” somebody it is obvious that's a good thing.

    Re: Fred1259 – Oh yes they act SO a like. Miley twerked on somebody without his consent at the VMA'S and Miley has been smoking weed and last I heard snuffing white powder off of the back of a toilet! You should really stop reading media because you know 100% nothing and that's a fact.
    Also, Taylor is an amazing role-model and if you weren't so brainless and reading all of this fake shit you'd see that to.

    Re: pow – Were is somebody to slap the karma into YOU when YOU need it. You cant go by media like are you kidding me? we all know (or maybe your to clueless to know) that media bashes ANYTHING that is good and anything that shines. Taylor has done nothing wrong, and Kanye is a devil worshipper last time I checked. (for real)
    Taylor, of course as the Christian gets a ton of hate because she IS a good girl. The media is full of lies, and the media will try to make you hate any celeb that's good. Most people hate her now, because awww she dated their favorite celebrity. Get over it. :)

    Re: trinigirl123
    I'd like you tell mRe: MB

    I'd like you tell me why you put the air quotes around ”song” ?? She has really good songs regardless to your opinions because she's breaking records almost every other day. Taylor also does WRITE her own songs if that's what your getting at!
    If it is to Harry he cheated on her so big whoop.
    But nobody cared about that because he is a DUDE.
    and if she did diss him, your on here dissing her so ……your defeating your own insult like seriously its pretty hypocritical.

    121

    Re: Nic-Nak – I know to you, she's just a star but to me It goes so much beyond just her music to the point were I love her as a person. She has an amazing personality and she's truly a very good role model regardless to what some people may or may not think.
    I'm just sick and tired of people making rumors, and believing in media! and the reason that I have this much anger and energy towards defending her is because I'm a Swiftie! which is the fanbase I'm in.. Back than people were not nearly as dedicated to their favorite celebs as much as the teens are today! I'm not trying to sound stalkerish, really its not like that. (though some fans are like seriously geez) but I'm personally not. I do want to meet her, so I hope I can go to one of her tours when I get older or get more money or something. Of course I will grow up and go to college (top priority) But I'll still support her music and I'll never facepalm at my dedication I had/still have because she seriously was my main cause for getting OUT of depression. I love her. <3

    122

    Re: swifty – I'm one of the biggest, and true Swifties you will ever be able to meet but seriously it pissed me off what Liam and Louis said but it is their business. Harry is their friend, they're just stupid but they ARE trying to look out for him, I know they aren't trying to be mean.
    And aww Selena is the best BFF I swear to God she's so sweet. :)

    123

    Re: YAWN
    I'm not an ass lick and I don't kiss her ass if that's were your getting at I'm just defending the girl who has defended all of us. (swifties) so get over it if you don't like it you can stop hating her! or at least stop hating ON her.
    she doesn't milk anything honestly. She IS the victim in a lot of things not just relationships but the media as well.

    125

    Re: michellt – I know you mean anything by your comment, but she's not a beast and this is an untrue article.
    For real they had no audio proving she said what she said, and if you look up ”bad lip readings” they can make it look like people say entirely different things than they actually did. Its weird sometimes. And I don't believe i knew you were trouble is about harry as it was wrote months before they started to even think about dating.

  26. Haley says – reply to this


    126

    Re: Andrea – I'm acting crazy? No what you call crazy is being dedicated to the girl that would do the same exact damn thing for her fans. (swifties)
    I'm not bullying, trust me the LAST thing I will ever fucking do is bully ANYBODY. I am just setting them right and if they're STUPID enough to believe in the media than they deserve anything they get from me and from any other Swiftie.
    Honestly they're saying ”she shouldn't diss anyone bitch” yet they're dissing her. And yeah I have a temper, but in the right place. *freedom of speech*
    Also, I don't PERSONALLY know Taylor but I know her on a personal level because she's very close with her fans and a lot of people don't see that unless you were either a fan from the start or your in our swiftie fanbase.

    Re: taylorswiftisanangel
    Thank Kanye for bullying her? for real? she wrote him a song called ”innocent” forgiving him.. like.. really? for real? Kanye is SO immature.
    and her ”MANY” exes include, Joe, Taylor, John, Jake, Connor and Harry.. Wow! 6 boys is so ”MANY” for a 23 year old to have dated.
    Please explain the title of your freaking comment like for real?

    Re: CHASE THE RATS GAGA 777 – Yet you have Ga Ga in your username? I'm assuming you like the weirdo? (not like I'm judging her just saying compared to Tay she is a weirdo)
    She hates? NO. She IS nice your unbelievably uneducated! I swear to God you find 3 media articles and believe them with all of your heart …. tragic… while you lil twats diss her for ”dissing” Harry just remember.. SHE'S GETTING MORE FAMOUS AS WE SPEAK.

    Re: Whatever
    Yeah okay well I know that but even if she did write it about Harry, the boys CONSTANTLY judge her and diss her but nobody cares because they have all of these cute little girls that will do anything to lick their ass. (sorry that's vulgar but literally) and Seriously I don't see why this got so much hate if she did diss him why would they get mocktales? like.. it doesn't make sense.

    No their point of view doesn't make them delusional, the fact that their point of view is based on AN INTERNET OR A MAGAZINE ARTICLE makes them delusional.

    There are a LOT of people singing about this shit, not just sweet Taylor. And BABY CHEEKS Kelly clarkson thanked her ex on an award show. did people care? no. Kelly did nothing wrong, neither has Taylor so get your immature ass off of here and find something to do besides hate on somebody you dont know.

    Um… Taylor is a whore. You guys do realize that your arguing about who the song is about and there are about a dozen different names through out the comments, right? She just needs to grow up and find another boyfriend to break up with so she doesn't lose her job.



  35. 135

    Re: Haley – I'm not sure where to start. First, the "not nearly dedicated as teens today". Wow, just wow. Google Elvis, or Beetles fans. The reason you think teens today are more dedicated is because they have the Internet and therefore are more VOCAL. I argue that those who didn't have the Internet to stalk their favorite musicians were more dedicated because they had to work hard to find out where their idols were and had to actually go see them perform not watch it on YouTube. They also had to make sure they were home or by a TV if that artist was on because they couldn't record it. You may think you are super hardcore fan but you just another crazy in a long line of crazies. Second, I won't assume to know your life or what struggles you have but if Taylor Swift got you out of "depression" it can't exactly be a hard life. Coming from someone who in a course of 6 months lost thier mother, job, house, and dog, a fucking 22 year old who has been living the good life since she was 17 is not going to help with any depression. You know what does…. Real people. A therapist and good friends you can lean on to help you. You are 15. Go out and meet new people, have fun, make mistakes. As I stated earlier you are spending too much time and energy defending someone who will never know you. Do you really want to look back at your life and say "At 15, I sat on my computer and got into arguments with strangers"?

    People get it through your thick heads she didnt said shut the f@ck up. She said "sorry for my arm" look carefully when you get a chance. She afterwards moved her arm.



  41. 141

    The problem is that Ol' Swifty is immature & can't just let things go. Harry & 1D clapped for her & were gentlemen & she acted like a bratty, jealous jr higher. Pathetic. Why would she tell them to shut the f+&* up? All they were doing was presenting an award. Move on like Harry has Taylor. You are just looking like a blubbering idiot instead of the little darling America fell in love with, who was classy & respectable. #lame

    Re: Nic-Nak – Yes, I do. Because I can say ”At 15 I was so dedicated to the person who loved her fans so much. Who only did a lot of good, even though she was bashed a lot for it. The girl who stayed strong and taught me life lessons.” So yes. I know Beetles and Elvis fans were dedicated, some still are and that's what I'm telling you! Swifties will stay SWIFTIES forever and always and thats not even exaggerating! Of course I will grow up, get a husband.. have kids? but I will also stand by Taylor's side, continuing to support her, maybe I wont stalk her pictures as much I might not have time to make graphics like I do now, but I wont stop buying her music until she stops making it. And all I'm saying is I will always respect her for being the strong person she is. I will always respect her, for her amazing music that helped me out of depression. I am verbally abused by my father, you don't know how hard it was to come out of depression. Taylor helped with that.
    DONT JUDGE ME, WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IVE BEEN THROUGH.

    Re: #1directionermum
    Your really are immature! I'm sure your kids have SUCH a good rolemodel to look up to! They can look up to somebody who judges people based off of an internet article. So I guess if one of your kids gets put into an article online everything that article says is true right? ”it must be mommy told me that everything in a rumor is true and a fact.” Like really? In my 15 years I am more mature than you this is just sad. She still IS the little darling America fell in love with and the classy and respectful girl that America AND UK and Phillipeens, AND ANY OTHER COUNTRY *still* respects and loves. The fans outway the bitches whom are jealous or uneducated.



  49. 149

    Re: Haley – First, I told you that I had no idea what your going through and being verbally abused by someone is difficult, but you're verbally abusing people on the Internet so don't try and take the high road on that. Also, I went through depression so don't tell me how difficult it is to come out of. Next, you misspelled philippines. Last, I'm done trying to talk any sense into you. Clearly you need professional help if your world revolves around Taylor Swift. Have a great life (clearly you won't, but I tried)

    Re: Haley – I do know that as you get older, you need to let go of boy drama and move the fuck on. I don't have to know her to know what she says and does publicly. I've NEVER seen a quote from any one of the guys she's dated in the past saying something negative about her. Why do you think that is? Because they are mature. All I know is, I'd rather be a fan of a strong woman who can learn from her mistakes than repeating the same crap over and over again. It's perfectly okay when you're learning and growing through dating. BUT THE GIRL IS AN ADULT. SHE'S 24 AND SHE NEEDS TO ACT LIKE IT.

Niall is the sweetest and most sensitive guy and I don't think anyone who knows exactly what she said about him would blame him for making funny faces at her. We all know that one direction aren't exactly mature and they're very childish like in this case but when its something like handling a situation which is in harry's case they're very mature and unlike taylor "the bitch" swift they don't hint to their exes or whatever bullshit…I'm just saying.

    Re: Haley – Bitch I'm not the one who this was directed at but I'm telling you if I ever got a chance to meet Taylor Swift I would give her a mouthful and a whole big chunk of my mind I even know exactly what I would say to her because One Direction which includes Harry Styles is a big part of my life and is actually the difference between my happiness and sadness and my life an death and to see her diss them like that breaks my heart coz I know it hurts them whether they show it or not. And I don't care if what she said in her speech was directed to Harry or John or which ever of her exes but I just think it was very immature and you'd know what an utterly immature bitch she is if you know what she said about Niall. Liam and Louis was just defending Harry and I think Liam was 100% accurate in what he said and that Taylor should get a life and move the ass that she hardly has on

    156

    She did it at the Grammys during her 'We are never getting back together' and then again at the VMA's. While Harry sat there smiled and clapped for her, showing who is the mature one. She needs to get a grip guys, too busy causing crap! Liam and Louis were right why would you call out 'one' of your ex's when YOU are getting an award - attention seeking much?!

    lol guys IKYWT ISN'T about harry, it's about john mayer so all directioners can calm the fuck down. and Taylor doesn't give a fuck about what you guys say and i bet harry even knows that song isn't about him. Taylor is not bashing anyone and she acts like a total lady and i mean while you are here insulting her she's busy making millions of dollars so yeah.
