When we weren’t talking about Miley Cyrus’ outrageous VMA performance or ‘N Sync’s mini-reunion (110 seconds was not enough time, people!), we were steering the conversation right over to when Taylor Swift said “Shut the f—k up!” after Harry Styles and the rest of One Direction appeared on stage. Well, according to Swift’s current BFF, Ed Sheeran, it was all a misunderstanding.
At a recent meet and greet in Portland, Ed was asked about the incident and decided to clear up whole messy situation. Luckily for him, a fan captured it all on video. He explained how the reaction was actually in response to Selena Gomez when she shared with Taylor how she didn’t think she would win Best Pop Video.
“Selena said to her, she said “I think Miley’s going to win” and then Taylor said, “oh shut the f*** up,” says Sheeran.
He also went on to say how Taylor did realize how it might not have been the best timing and how it might have been taken out of context. Yeah, you know, just a little bit.
Well, leave it to Ed Sheeran to clear everything up for us. Thanks, bestie!
