Haters gonna hate, but Taylor Swift is just gonna keep shakin'.

Swift took to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 24, to perform her latest single "Shake It Off," which she debuted during a Yahoo! live stream on Monday, Aug. 18. The 24-year-old rocked it out in a fringed crop top and matching bottoms with a bevy of tuxedoed gentlemen around her for the 20s-themed performance.

And Miley was all like:

This marks Swift's fourth VMAs performance. She first took to the stage in 2009, the same year Kanye West crashed her Best Female Video acceptance speech, saying Beyonce should have won instead.

The superstar singer is set to release her fifth studio album, titled "1989," on Oct. 27. She spent two years working on it and announced that it will be her first full-length pop album.

"We made the most sonically-cohesive album I'd ever made. We made my favorite album I've ever made," Swift told fans during her Yahoo! live stream. "I was listening to a lot of late '80s pop ... So being inspired by that, I started delving into the late '80s. It was apparently a time of limitless potential … Be who you want, wear what you want, do what you want ... The idea of that was so inspiring to me."
