Taylor Swift reportedly a wreck before taking the stage at last night’s VMA’s

Last night was the first time Taylor Swift has been face-to-face since her infamous run-in with the rapper during last year’s VMA’s. Not only was she under the same roof as Kanye West, she also debuted her new song – which was about him.

“Taylor was a nervous wreck before she hit the stage last night,” a friend of the singer tells Pop Eater. “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 innocent and had no idea how he would react to the song she wrote and performed about him.”

Taylor’s new song, ‘Still an Innocent,’ 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.

Also according to Pop Eater, MTV placed extra security guards around the stage to make sure the stage was all hers.

But Kanye was able to react himself, when he performed his new song at the end of the show. “Let’s have a toast for the a**holes / Let’s have a toast for the douchebag,” West sang. “Let’s have a toast for the scumbag … everyone of them I know.”

Beautiful melody, beautiful lyrics, but very off key. Maybe it was just nerves.

She needs autotune….always has.

I like Taylor, but she’s always off key.

the only way her performance would’ve been great is if Kanye would’ve came out and sang with her. I kept waiting for it..like a few times I thought he’d emerge as one of the guys in the shadows on the stage. Without that, the whole thing was pretty lame. she needs to move on.

I can tell after that song is fine tuned in the studio I’ll really like it… 🙂
