Taylor Swift Was Not Happy Kanye West Went Off Script At The VMAs

According to Radar Online, Taylor Swift was super pissed about Kanye West’s speech at the VMAs on Sunday night. Apparently she agreed to present him with the Video Vanguard Award, but he had to stick to a list of agreed upon talking points — so when Kanye took to the stage to deliver what was essentially a brilliant-at-times-but-also-unhinged TED talk, Tay-Tay was not happy.

Playing off of their rocky VMA history, MTV slated Swift to present Kanye with his award — but not without a detailed plan! “They had agreed to his talking points as part of the agreement of her presenting the award,” the insider told RadarOnline.com. “And then he went ‘in a whole different direction.’”

As Kanye launched into his free-form acceptance speech, which included references to his status as one of music’s most hated and misunderstood artists, as well his plans to run for president in 2020, Swift began to panic. With no chance at getting Kanye’s speech back on plan, she and her handlers took action, starting with Swift getting the heck away from Kim Kardashian West! “She said she went into tunnel vision when he started going off script and that she tried to put distance between her and Kim,” the source said. “Her publicist had them kill planned shots to her once he went off course.”

But in the end, she had nothing to worry about. “(Swift) said ‘it could have be worse’ but luckily it wasn’t about her even though he had agreed to apologize but didn’t,” the insider revealed.

I’m not sure I buy this. First all, I don’t see Kanye agreeing to jackshit in advance, especially to terms dictated by Taylor Swift. Second, I don’t see Taylor being dumb enough to think that Kanye would be anything but unpredictable. [Radar Online]
