No Kanye West awkwardness for Taylor Swift!
The VMAs are on Sunday and Kanye racked up several VMA nominations for The Life of Pablo, and Taylor didn’t get nominated for anything. Taylor tried to play it like she’s didn’t submit her three eligible videos for nomination, but considering she was exposed as a little less than completely honest this year, that seems a little flimsy. Taylor wants you to believe that all of this is her choice, and that she’s not going to the VMAs this year of her own volition, thankyouverymuch.
Don’t expect any seat-dancing from Taylor Swift at this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards – the pop star won’t be in attendance. Although the singer is currently spending time in New York City, Swift will not be in the crowd when the VMAs return to the Big Apple, a source close to the VMAs and Swift exclusively confirms to PEOPLE.
“Taylor was never scheduled to attend the VMAs,” says the insider. Swift, whose last album dropped in November 2014, was not nominated for any awards this time around.
Sounds like this is Kim Kardashian (who is scheduled to present) and Kanye’s year to hold court at MTV. And I think we’re all kind of happy about that.
