Taylor Swift References Kanye West VMA Incident After Being Nominated


Taylor Swift really knows how to hold a grudge.

After learning that her video for "I Knew You Were Trouble" had been nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards, the 23-year-old superstar took to Twitter to urge her fans to vote -- and she couldn't help but slyly reference her now infamous run-in with Kanye West:

Swift has been nominated consistently throughout the last three years, but 2009 was the last time she won a VMA. It's also the same year she was interrupted by West, who rushed the stage to let the world know a miscarriage of justice had played out since he believed that "Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time."

It's an incident that West took a lot of flack over (not that he cares), but it's one that Swift apparently hasn't quite gotten over.

Swift wrote the song "Innocent" after the experience, claiming the process helped her put the incident behind her. But according to Vanity Fair, the singer also has “a framed photograph of that moment" hanging in her home, which doesn't exactly sound like the decor of someone who has closure.

This year, Swift is nominated for both Best Female Video and Video of The Year -- and thankfully she doesn't have to go up against Beyonce for either category this time around.
