One Direction Weighs In On Taylor Swift’s Snarky VMA Speech
She made a not-so-subtle remark about Harry Styles during her Best Female Video acceptance speech at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (August 25), and Taylor Swift appears to have touched a nerve.
Referencing her reason for writing the hit “I Knew You Were Trouble,” Swifty stated, “I also want to thank the person who inspired this song, who knows exactly who he is, because now I got one of these.”
Harry’s One Direction band mate Liam Payne joked, “When she said those things about Niall [Horan], we were very, very pissed off. Hashtag get over it.”
“I just thought it was a bit not needed. I mean, you just won an award, it’s like, concentrate on yourself!” he added, noting that the whole thing was “lame.”
