Mystery solvedthanks to Ed Sheeran! Taylor Swift ‘s apparent F-bomb became one of the most talked about moments from the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards last week, after the country crooner appeared to throw some serious shade at ex Harry Styles . But now, Sheeran is clearing up any lingering confusion and sticking up for his pal. At the awards, the 23-year-old songbird was sitting with BFF Selena Gomez while One Direction was onstage. The camera cut to Taylor, who seemed to be mouthing the words “Shut the f–k up,” causing many to believe the subtle diss was meant for her former flame.

Sheeran also added that Swift was well aware her slipup was caught on camera and instantly knew the moment was bound to create some buzz (and an endless supply of GIFs). “She went over to me straight after and said, ‘I think I messed up,'” the redheaded cutie clarified.

Taylor Swift VMA F-Bomb: Ed Sheeran Says the Moment Was Misinterpreted, Comment Meant for Selena Gomez
Taylor Swift made headlines when she dropped the f-bomb just as One Direction’s Harry Styles was taking the stage at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, but now her good pal Ed Sheeran is sticking up for the 23-year-old pop star. PHOTOS: Taylor’s rocky romantic history In a recent meet and greet in Portland, Oregon, the “Lego House” singer admitted that Swift’s “shut the f— up!” comment was actually directed toward her BFF Selena Gomez . The blonde beauty was responding to Gomez stating that Miley Cyrus was probably going to take home a Moonman for Best Pop Video, a category the two stars were both competing in. Gomez, 21, eventually took home the win. Sheeran, 22, also revealed that the “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer knew immediately that her ill-timed outburst was caught on camera. Swift went up to the British star afterward and said, “I think I messed up.” Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Credit: Andrew H.

The redheaded star is often forced to play “Switzerland” when it comes to his two friends, the source added.

Is 2 fucking seconds long. Of course you cant see what Selenas saying. Dan Wowww. Youre gonna have to try harder than that to bring Ms. Swift down. You sound really petty. AlarTruve Its hilarious how many females act like she is this horrible person. Girl on girl hate really is the funniest thing.This is why feminism and equality in society will never work. She may play a victim here and there but its certainly overblown. Make no mistake about it. She is a hell of a strong individual for getting to where she has gotten in such a young age. In charge of a freaking empire! CEO of numerous enormous companies.
But friend Ed Sheeran has defended Taylor Swift, saying that her foul-mouthed ‘shut the f***’ jibe was not aimed at her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, but at Selena Gomez instead. The I Knew You Were Trouble hitmaker was spotted mouthing the insult while her ex-boyfriend Harry was on stage with his One Direction band mates, but Ed has claimed she was actually swearing at her best friend. Write caption here According to Cosmopolitan magazine, at a recent press conference Ed insisted Taylor was directing the jibe at Selena – who was sat next to her – after she expressed doubt at her ability to pick up a prize at the ceremony. He said: ‘Selena said, “I think Miley’s gonna win [over me]”. And Taylor was like, “Shut the f*** up!” That’s all that was!’ And the 23-year-old star apparently knew her comments would be misinterpreted to be directed at Harry. Awkward all-round: Harry was later seen biting his tongue as Taylor appeared to make a reference to him during her acceptance speech A likely story: Ed Sheeran claims Taylor was merely reassuring her friend Selena that she was going to win the award for Best Pop Video Concerns: Ed claims that Selena was worried Miley Cyrus – who publicly embarrassed herself with a cringe-inducing performance on We Can’t Stop – was going to win her award Ed added: ‘Taylor was like, “I think I messed up.”‘ Following the incident, Taylor was spotted with Harry and the A Team singer was forced to keep the peace – a role he is said to frequently adopt when he’s around his two friends. It was previously claimed: ‘Ed made sure to keep them separate.’ According to Us Magazine, things were ‘super awkward’ between the pair, but Ed was called to appease the situation. Trouble: Harry Styles at the 2013 MTV VMAs were Taylor supposedly made repeated digs at her ex An insider also said: ‘Ed made sure to keep them separate.’ It is reported that the neutral role is one he has to adopt quite often when it comes to his mutual friends, who split in January after a three-month romance. Harry’s band mates have leaped to his defence after Taylor also appeared to dedicate her own Best Female Video trophy – for I Knew You Were Trouble – to her ex-boyfriend, whom she has admitted she wrote the song about. Liam Payne previously said: ‘I just thought it was a bit not needed. I mean, you just won an award, it’s like, concentrate on yourself …
Ed Sheeran Says Taylor Swift’s ‘Shut The F Up’ Wasn’t About 1D, I Say She’s Bribing Him With Jam
No doubt there were a few, but youd never have guessed it from the crowd at the Tacoma Dome. Thousands of adolescent girls converged on the Dome, giddy at the chance to see the country-pop megastar in person. A good portion of them did their best to emulate her looks: hair down, bare legs and cowboy boots. The cool thing about Taylor is, its all demographics, said Holly Quinn, who hosts The Morning Show on KMPS Radio and was in front of the Dome with her crew Saturday, tapping into the pre-concert enthusiasm. Taylor sets a good, positive role model, Quinn said. Its great to see the support. Swift, who at 23 has seven Grammys and has sold more than 26 million albums, was in Tacoma as part of her summer Red Tour. It will continue through the United States and then to Australia and New Zealand over the next 31/2 months. The Tacoma show was sold out. Tom Furtwangler of Seattle, one of the few grown men in the audience, came to the concert with his 14-year-old daughter, Claire. He said his daughter is crazy about Swift, and he understands the attraction. She likes that Taylor writes her own songs, and I do, too, Furtwangler said. In some ways, shes more of a real deal than some of the other people you could go see with a 14-year-old. Theres a level of authenticity that is unusual for sort of a teen pop phenomenon. I like her songs, and shes pretty, said Teayona Hoard, 9, who traveled from Spokane with her father to attend the concert.

Pinterest page attributes Hitler quotes to Taylor Swift By MARC RAIMONDI Last Updated: 5:52 PM, August 30, 2013 Pinterest Taylor Swift cant hold onto a man, but she sure can, in theory, rule a group of people through fear and violence. A Pinterest page has been posting quotes from Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden and Joseph Stalin and attributing them to Taylor Swift. And users bought it. The moderator has since taken the page down because it “has become a bit too much of an Internet phenomenon for me to handle,” she wrote on the newly blank site. Before she deleted the pictures, one photo of Swift with a quote that reads Do not compare yourself to others. If you do so, you are insulting everyone had been repinned nearly 300 times. Of course, that wasnt said by the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together singer, it was the leader of the Third Reich. But one user posted in response Your a genius and another wrote This is amazing! Pinterest The page is run by the user Emily Pattinson, who admits on Twitter (@poopcutie) : Yes I am the girl who started Hitler Quotes Attributed To Taylor Swift. Her last name likely is not Pattinson as her affinity for Robert Pattinson shows on social media. The only good that could come out of this would be if Taylor Swift acknowledges it and it pisses her off, Pattinson tweeted Friday morning. The Hitler quote great liars are also great magicians has 36 repins. Pattinsons latest Swift quote is actually from former Soviet leader Stalin: It isnt history that makes heroes, it is heroes that make history. You can almost hear Swift singing that in her next hit single.
