If you love the VMAs, you KNOW this year has already been a ginormous tease.
At least we know for sure that Miley Cyrus is going to host… but what of the rest of the performers? Well, through some super top secret insider info, it’s being reported that Taylor Swift, Kanye West,Selena Gomez, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, AND Nicki Minaj will all be performing.
That’s a pretty heavy lineup.
Taylor Swift is supposed to sing Bad Blood (which means the model squad might also be in tow) while word on the street Nicki Minaj might perform Trini Dem Girls with Lunchmoney Lewis.
The Weeknd is reportedly set to perform Can’t Feel My Face, and Nick Jonas and Walk The Moon will take the stage on the VMAS pre-show singing Levels and Shut Up and Dance.
No word on what Selena, Yeezy, Bruno and the like will perform but this feels like a heavy-hitting show, don’t it? Who do you want to see most from these rumored performers?
Yeah, you heard me. Last night at L.A.’s Staples Center Taylor Swift brought out surprise guest Alanis Morissette, and the two took the stage to perform an epic duet of her 1995 classic, “You Oughta Know.”
WHY DIDN’T I BUY TICKETS TO THIS?! Taylor also said a couple words before the duet…
“She defined the music of her decade,” Swift, told the audience (of 10 years olds who probably had no idea what was going on). “She inspired a generation of confessional female singer-songwriters who all of a sudden felt like you could actually say these raw feelings that you had. You could actually sing about your real life, you could put detail to it, you could get really, really mad if you wanted to.”
The “Bad Blood” crooner added, “I think it’s fair to say that so many of the female singer-songwriters of my generation, including myself, would not write the way that we do without her and her music. And she has written some of the most brilliant music—in particular probably inarguably the greatest breakup song of all-time.”
HEAR HEAR. Unfortunately there was no “Ironic” encore, but I’m including the original video for all you YOUNGINS to enjoy.
I don’t want to live in a world where Katy Perry and Taylor Swift aren’t fighting.
Yesterday I told y’all that Katy Perry’s people registered a new song called “1984” with music-licensing organization BMI. Given the similarity between “1984” and Tay’s album called “1989” (which you definitely know about unless you’ve been living in a very deep cave without wifi), the track was rumored to be about Taylor.
BMI confirmed that the “1984” song was registered back in September by BMG Platinum Songs, affiliated with Katy but NOT like, her stable of people. The song is still on BMI’s site with Katy Perry listed under the “Artists” tag…which could mean it’s just a popular pop song that crossed the desk of her people.
So, I guess there really IS nothing to see here…until we spot Kendrick Lamar and a bunch of models shooting something in bondage gear. Am I right?!
