Taylor Swift’s VMA Diss Was Misinterpreted, Not Aimed At Harry Styles, Says Pal Ed Sheeran
25, saying that the Red singer was not cursing out her ex-boyfriend, but rather was talking about Miley Cyrus. Swift appeared to be mouthing the words “Shut the f**k up” as One Direction band member and Swift’s former beau, Harry Styles, started speaking on stage while presenting the award for Best Pop Video. She said the words to her best friend sitting beside her, Selena Gomez, somewhere between where Zayn Malik ended his bit with, “The best fans are in New York,” and where Styles took over with, “We were looking to win three VMAs last year.” Taylor & Harry Dinner Date Revealed After MTV VMAs, Details Sheeran, who is currently touring with Swift, explained at a recent press conference that the curse was not aimed at Styles, but rather Cyrus.Just moments before the camera turned to Swift, Gomez told her she thinks Cyrus is going to win the award for Best Pop Video. In response, Swift told Gomez “Shut the f**k up,” meaning that she does not believe her. In the end, Gomez won the respective award. Sheeran added that Swift came up to him after realizing her words may be taken out of context and said, “I think I messed up.” “She rung me straight afterwards and said ‘I think I messed up.’ Selena had said to her ‘I think Miley’s going to win’ and that’s what that was, so… That’s what that was.” Though the incident was not a direct hit at her ex-boyfriend, Swift dissed Styles later in the evening. She took home the award for Best Female Video forI Knew You Were Troubleand while accepting the award she called out her former beau, who was the inspiration behind the song . “I feel really lucky,” Swift said to the audience, before adding,”I also want to thank the person who inspired this song who knows exactly who he is because now I got one of these. Thank you so much.” Watch Sheeran explain Swift’s F-bomb in the video below and also watch the incident play out at the 2013 VMAs.

Harry Styles responds to Taylor Swift’s VMAs on-stage dig, Liam Payne calls it ‘lame’ and Niall Horan tells her to ‘get over it’
Get it? Sloths are slow? We can’t tell you how many times we’ve thought, “If only we could see our fave pop stars rendered as cartoon sloths, life would be complete!” (What? We have unique fantasies.) Luckily, someone has made our dreams come true — an artist by the name of “Sh**ty Watercolour” drew One Direction , Taylor Swift , Lana Del Rey and Ed Sheeran AS CARTOON SLOTHS! OK, we know what you’re thinking: “Um, why sloths and not something a little more cuddly, like, kittens or puppies or koalas or pandas or bunnies or ducklings or meerkats?” (OMG, have you ever seen a meerkat up close? SO cute!) And our answer: Because sloths do not have enough representation in the media, and the Internet must remedy this grave injustice. The end. Bye. #SlothsAreTheNewCats Check out more adorbz sloth celebs after the jump. I knew you were trouble when you slothed in! (Sorry, sloth jokes never get old.) An 18-year-old British artist, Sh**ty Watercolour enjoys painting sloths as much as he does celebs, explaining that: “Sloths have a certain personality and charm to them that I love to paint.” (BTW, you can check out some of his funny YouTube videos detailing his work and process.) Lana Del Rey was clearly born to sloth. Not only does the artist get the charm of sloths, he also NAILS each pop star’s personality. (I mean, Lana Del Sloth? LOL forever.) However, we do have two major critiques: 1.) Taylor Swift’s should be giving the Swifty (Sloth!) Surprise look because, obvs, and 2.) Harry Sloth-les should be shirtless because, duh.
Harry Styles has responded to ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift ‘s VMAs on-stage dig – which was clearly aimed at him – and he’s not in the least bit fazed by it. Taking things to a petty level, Taylor made a less-than-subtle jibe as she took to the stage to accept her Best Female Video award for her song, I Knew You Were Trouble. Picking up her gong, she smirked: “I also want to thank the person who inspired this song, who knows exactly who he is, because now I’ve got one of these.” And having previously admitted the song was written about Harry, the message hardly needed decoding. Taylor Swift is also thought to have say ‘shut the f*** up’ when Harry Styles took to the stage. Harry kept his media-savvy face firmly in place when he was asked about the quip at the New York premiere of This Is Us, telling Extra: “It’s alright, she likes a joke. I like a joke as much as the next guy, so it’s all good.” But his fellow One Direction bandmates were slightly less willing to let it slide, with Liam Payne branding her “lame” and Niall Horan telling her to “get over it”. Agreeing that her comments were ‘lame’, Liam added: “I just thought it was a bit not-needed. I mean, you just won an award, it’s like, ‘Concentrate on yourself!'” Niall and Liam then proceeded to joke about the whole ordeal, referencing Taylor’s massively-awkward moment at the VMAs in 2009 when Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech to say Beyonce should have won her award instead. Taylor Swift and Harry Styles were later snapped looking all smiles with pal Ed Sheeran backstage at the VMA’s. Louis Tomlinson joked: “We were a bit confused. We thought she was actually calling out Niall, so the whole thing’s a bit confusing.” Liam added: “Yeah, when she said those things about Niall, we were very, very pissed off.” Niall then quipped: “I was so upset that she would go writing songs about me after all we’ve been through.” Liam finished the banter off, simply adding: “Hashtag get over it … I was going to do a Kanye! It’s the best video of all time! …
