Taylor Swift Calls Out Harry Styles At The VMAs: 'Shut The F**k Up'

Taylor Swift was less than pleased to see ex-boyfriend Harry Styles as he took to the stage at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night.

The 23-year-old singer was caught saying "Shut the f**k up" to pal Selena Gomez as Styles and the rest of One Direction were thanking their fans for being so awesome, right before they went on to announce Gomez as the winner of Best Pop Video.

Swift and Styles called it quits in January after dating for just a few months, and it appears as though we can definitely expect a song about the 19-year-old on Swift's next album -- not that it's something that would bother the boy band member, mind you.

Later, when Swift accepted the award for Best Female Video, she appeared to take another swipe at Styles again. "I want to thank the fans because I tweeted about this a lot, I really wanted this. I also want to thank the person who inspired this song because he knows exactly who he is, because now I've got one of these," she said as the camera panned on Styles, whose bandmates were smirking at each other.

Though it was widely believed that John Mayer was the inspiration for Swift's hit "I Knew You Were Trouble," it's starting to seem more likely that the song was inspired by the first time Swift and Styles dated in early 2012.

Yet after dissing (dating and dumping) Styles twice, Swift somehow ended up posing for photos with him at a VMAs after party, which leaves us wondering if this is all a big ploy for publicity.
