So, we were all agog when Taylor Swift appeared to mouth ‘Shut the f*ck up’ to her BFF Selena Gomez, as One Direction were awarded the best video gong at the MTV VMAs last Sunday. Was she seriously taking such an open dig at her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles in front of the WHOLE WORLD? And swearing?
Well, according to her mate Ed Sheeran, no. Speaking out in defence of Taylor, Ed explained her actions in a recent interview. "She rung me straight afterwards and said, 'I think I messed up'," he said. "Selena had said to her, 'I think Miley’s going to win' and that’s what that was, so…".
Still a bit awkward that Taylor may have been airing her surprise at Miley winning an award, but nice to know she wasn’t being bitter about her ex. So, could it be a sign that things have thawed between her and Mr Styles?
We think maybe. After all, they were pictured together (with Ed) at a VMA after party later that evening AND Harry confirmed to reporters that the pair had even gone to dinner at the Soho Grand Hotel Club Room, saying, "We went for dinner... I had a mocktail."
We thought the pair were never ever, ever getting back together but maybe they’re having second thoughts... Fingers crossed, Haylor fans!
