When someone has a conversation interrupted by stranger who later apologizes several times, the survivor typically goes on to lead a normal life. But others are so haunted by the event, they must confront their attacker musically. And so last night at the 2010 VMA’s, with Kanye West in the audience, Taylor Swift sang a song about the 2009 VMA’s, when Kanye crashed the stage as she accepted an award.
Can this story continue to overreact on such a huge scale to this non event? You know it brother! Popeater says…
Taylor Swift once again found herself in the company of the man that made her cry.
The guy who gave her that shitty spiral perm?
Not only was the young Taylor seeing Kanye West for the first time since the rapper’s infamous ambush at last year’s VMAs, she was also debuting a new song about him that she was terrified to perform.
I would have been too, this song is fucking terrible.
“Taylor was a nervous wreck before she hit the stage last night,” a friend of the singer tells me. “She knew Kanye was in the building and was terrified and praying that he wouldn’t pull another stunt.”
“Dear God, please protect me from anything interesting…”
Taylor’s new song was indeed very emotional. “Lost your balance on the tight rope / It’s never too late to get it back,” she sang. “Thirty-two and still growing up now … who you are is not what you say,” Swift continued as everyone in the audience waited for West to react.
But he didn’t. Because why would he? “Lost your balance on the tight rope / It’s never too late to get it back”? The fuck does that mean? She could sing that while pointing at me and working a little doll that looks like me that says “YOU” on it and then have the doll fall off a little tight rope, and it still wouldn’t register. I would just smile and nod politely and give her a thumbs up.
