Taylor Swift VMAS PERFORMANCE 2010

Taylor Swift‘s new song ‘Innocent’ about Kanye West.

  • Anonymous

    She showed that she still wants attention from it. She’s so full of herself and played the victim. Plus, she needs some singing lessons

  • Anonymous

    me thinks you’re tone deaf. every time she went high her pitch faltered. face it, she’s an unbelievable song writer and i have every single one of her studio albums, her sets are fantabulous and her fashion sense is a breath of fresh air in todays world where wearing nothing is considered fashionable, but her live singing? not so great. every singer has their fault.

    Lyrics to Innocent by Taylor Swift

    I guess you really did it this time
    Left yourself in your war path
    Lost your balance on a tightrope
    Lost your mind trying to get it back

    Wasn’t it easier in your lunchbox days?
    Always a bigger bed to crawl into
    Wasn’t it beautiful when you believed in everything
    And everybody believed in everything

    And everybody believed in you

    CHORUS
    It’s alright, just wait and see
    Your string of lights are still bright to me, oh
    Who you are is not what you’ve been
    You’re still an innocent
    You’re still an innocent

    There’s some things you can’t speak of
    But tonight you’ll live it all again
    You wouldn’t be shattered on the floor now
    If only you were seeing what you know now, then Wasn’t it easier in your firefly catching days?
    And everything out of reach someone picked up and brought down to you
    Wasn’t it beautiful running wild ‘til you fell asleep
    Before the monsters caught up to you

    CHORUS
    It’s alright, just wait and see
    Your string of lights are still bright to me, oh
    Who you are is not what you’ve been
    You’re still an innocent

    It’s okay, life is a tightrope 32 and still growing up now
    Who you are is not what you did
    You’re still an innocent Time turns flames to embers
    You’ll have new Septembers
    Every one of us has messed up too Lines change like the weather
    I hope you remember
    Today is never too late to be brave CHORUS
    It’s alright, just wait and see
    Your string of lights are still bright to me, oh
    Who you are is not what you’ve been
    You’re still an innocent It’s okay, life is a tight rope
    32 and still growing up now
    Who you are is not what you did
    You’re still an innocent
    You’re still an innocent Lost your balance on a tightrope
    It’s never too late to get it back

    Listen close. The first verse, she’s singing about disappointment in herself. The second is about Kanye. She relates the 2 and says everyone makes mistakes. I think this was the best way Taylor could have responded to his apologies on twitter a few weeks ago.

    True. But I think the cool part is that she obviously wrote this before Kanye’s twitter apology and what not so it all came together very nicely. Can’t wait for the stuio cut.

    Kanye had a twitter rant and apologized to Taylor again,Taylor wrote this…..most likely…last year? She’s not bashing him in anyway.

    She is not a great singer, but this was one of her better performances.
    But she really needs some singing lessons. It sounds just bad when she sings…

    People tuned in to see what was gonna go down with Taylor and kanye, they are just shocked she didnt act like chelsa handler. It’s Taylor Swift people shes gonna be Taylor Swift. Some of you act so damn shocked that she sang off key, catch up, no ones perfect and she doesnt pretend to be. Inspite of the haters she keeps doing what she truly enjoys performing.

    Taylor writes songs about things that happen to her.. and this was a beautiful song and a classy performance.
    Kanye does give a damn who he hurts just as long as he gets attention.

  • Anonymous

    GOOD LORD YOU PEOPLE ARE SO FREAKING IGNORANT.

    If you were to look at the lyrics before you hate, what she’s saying is that everybody makes mistakes and that Kanye’s not the monster the media has made him out to be. She easily could’ve made a song about how much of an asshole he is but she didn’t. She forgave him. HOW IS THAT NOT CLASSY? Okay, he sang about ‘douchebags’ ‘assholes’ and what else?

    #TaylorForTheWin

  • kattt.

    Think about it this way;

    Brittany, Madonna, and Christina kissed at a VMA and ALL made HUGE waves that are still shocking today,
    the next year, did a single one of them write a song about? NO. Did they mention it? Maybe (I can’t really remember if any of them brought it up lol)

    Nor did Tim Commerford or Fred Durst after the whole scaling the scalping thing.

    For those saying, “Taylor was just getting over it in song” or “She’s being classy” all the other artist who are actually GOOD have NEVER brought up their controversies a year later. They still don’t. She is the only one dragging it out, even if this song was about getting over it, she is dragging it out by singing this song. She could have left it on her album and never brought it up at the VMAs.

    End of rant. ;)

  • Anonymous

    seriously taylor swift needs to grow a pair.All she looks for is attention on how horrible people are to her and how innocent she is. She goes on about how she’s a good role model but how is this a good role model bitchy comments and song. seeing as she’s in the limelight i would have thought she would have been a bit more grownup about things. same with joe jonas she made herself she’s known for that and how much she goes on about even when not asked. and to top off her awful personality she cant sing and all her songs are the same. all about oh i like a boy, he doesnt like me, oh wait he does! catchy badly written chorus. burn.

    It’s one thing to write a song about it and sing it, but to have the clip played before the song to make it known “HEY. This song is about Kanye. Feel bad for me.” Its just annoying. Time to let it go. What he did was rude, it really was, but really she only benefitted from it. It made her look better everyone was on her side. I’d say its time to end it now…a whole friggen year later.

    I’m sorry to say this but the fact is:

    She wasn’t in tune, and
    that simply hurt my ears.

    I have sooo much more respect for her than I ever have had before! She didn’t bash him (which she could have easily done) but instead, she said that everyone makes mistakes and related herself with him. That’s why it’s people like Taylor who deserve to be famous and where they are at. Maybe she doesn’t have the best vocal skills but she is one of the classiest. :D

  • LittleCookie

    taylor assumes that she did deserve last years award..

    in the words on the great kanye:
    “BEYONCE DESERVED IT!” get over it.

  • Daydreamer…..

    I’m glad this van all be done now. I don’t like that fact that she sang this, I would have rather she just put it on her album and let people assume what they want to. I would have just said eh fuck it and let it go…
    On that note, at least she didn’t bash him. The lyrics were nice.
    Her voice….let’s just say i don’t care for it live. I’m sorry as a fan, she IS off pitch no doubt about it. Her talent is definitely writing.

    Whoever is saying she sounded amazing is tone-deaf. I’ve been a musician for 10 years and she sounded bad. Really bad. And plus it was just a boring performance. She needs to move on. Whether she wrote the song a year ago or a week ago it’s over and done with so don’t bring it up again. I think that her fame has been fading so she’s trying to play the victim again to bring her fame back, but everyone’s tired of it over it. I’m not trying to hate on her I’m just looking at it as it is. She could have and should have performed Mine or another new song, not waste her time singing about something that happened a year ago. But I guess there’s quite a few things she still isn’t over and that’s her problem to deal with I guess.

    What the fuck? Why are people saying she can’t sing? Maybe you should jut jam a stick in your ears. I bet these are the SAME idiots who think Taylor Momsen and Miley Cyrus can sing. You wouldn’t know a beautiful voice if it came and punched you in the face. haha.

  • ColdAsU

    Are you an pro musician :D?
    Stop showing hate on Taylor when Chelsea was the one who did a shitty skit of how to ‘block someone for stealing your spotlight’.Boring performance? It was simple and beautiful.Her fame hasn’t been fading.She hasn’t released an album since 08 and she got off the FEARLESS tour in june so of course she won’t be in the spot light.

  • Truth be told

    if you’ve been a musician for ten years then you obviously haven’t been a good one. her’s was one of the better performances of the night. did you hear Hayley Williams? She’s normally a powerhouse and it was pretty miserable. not to mention how anyone can sit through Florence and The Machine without vomiting.
    As someone who is classically trained in vocal performance… i promise you, taylor was not nearly as bad as you’d like to demand. it was engaging and symbolic. two things far from boring. and it was a classy way to say “hey this happened, its over and i forgive him” rather than his drunken rant on twitter and a finale boasting about how we should toast him for his actions.

    you’re an imbecile.

  • remember_me

    Wow she’s getting a lot of hate on twitter..didnt expect that and kanye got a chant and standing ovation…i’m confused


    It’s called realization.

    further, the fact that you call yourself a “musician” and yet seem to have no understanding of the term… give me a break. a true musician writes, plays, sings, etc from the HEART. as she did.

    taylor swift is about a million times the musician you are. so i’d keep my mouth shut if i were you.

    please, Taylor Swift, get the hell over it. It was a year ago. All she does is bitch, and moan, and complain. First it was the 27 second phone call with Joe Jonas, now its Kanye and the VMA incident which, in case she forgot, happened at LAST YEARS VMAS.

  • ensuringthecrisis

    LMFAO when she was done performing the first thing I thought of was ‘Why isn’t she wearing shoes??’


    Oh and the song sucked. Kanye West took the mic from her, he didn’t punch her in the face. People need to get over it.

    They both could have ended this last year with a simply apology.

  • Anonymous

    he didn’t rape her…he just showed up to the VMA’s hammered and did something stupid. let it go

  • milenator

    this was so stupid
    it was a year ago and she didnt have to have the Kanye clip replayed everyone knows about it already
    (it kinda answers why she wasnt at the ‘white carpet’ before the show cause she bein private)
    plus this performance was so boring, its the VMAs
    although her performance ‘You Belong With Me’ last year was really good
    so this and a couple other performances were what made this year’s vma’s sucked…

    I hope that the people defending Taylor’s live performance are not the same ones that slam Selena for not doing well live. I get it – Taylor’s beautiful, she’s got good stage presence, and she writes nice songs from her diary. But, this was only slightly more on-key than her Grammy’s performance.

    Honestly, I think MTV shouldn’t have asked her to perform. or atleast she shouldn’t have performed that song. I mean, they were making it out to be like everything was in the past and Kanye was gonna hve this big performance and then BOOM! Taylor Swift comes in with this song bringing up old shit. I love Tay but come on sweetie let it rest. This is not gonna help you sell albums.

    I am the only one who doesn’t understand how people can hate her? That song was beautiful and a very classy way to address the situation, forgive Kanye, and move on. She looked gorgeous too, love the hair and makeup! :)

    What principles does she have, exactly? To me she comes across like a spoiled narcisist, always painting herself up as a victim and expecting everybody to give her sympathy.

  • NadiaAf23

    Please like Kanye isn’t still trying to get attention from the situation! Even though her voice isn’t the greatest I thought it was one of the most beautiful performances! Her album is going to be INSANE! I’m stoked.

  • Ally

    Okay. Everyone needs to stop hating on her. Yeah it was a year ago but there are so many people still hating on Kanye. You know how many aritists would have said “Fuck you Kanye”? But Taylor actually wrote a song saying that she wasn’t that badly hurt by it and that everyone messes up sometimes. Vocally she wasn’t that great. But her lyrics are very powerful. She’s being the bigger person by saying that she still has repspect for Kanye. And that takes a lot of courage to go up and say that in front of milllions of people.

  • Anonymous

    okay so yes i did also notice her voice sounded a little off but i didn’t think it was a bad performance… and i think when people are saying “she needs to get over it”
    they mean, don’t bring it up again.
    because sure you can argue this was her closure, but still, girlfran, it’s been a year. maybe just… idk drop it? like it sucks what happened and kanye is a doucher but maybe put the album on the song and that could have been closure. i think her letting go of the situation might have still won her the sympathy card.
    cause think about it she lets it go like within the first month of it happening and people are like “aww look at how sweet she is, that poor thing”
    but now it’s like “really, you’re still on this?”
    you know? it’s all about timing.
    haha just an idea.

    whiny bitch…
    Kanye fucking pwnd you two years in a row.
    And this year he didn’t even have to take the mike from you.
    your just pathetic now.
    Taylor should’ve been thanking kanye for everything he’s done for her.
    All the sympathy awards she was given.
    Without kanye, do you really think a toneless whiny blonde would’ve won 4 Grammys in one night?
    I don’t think so.
    You taylor swift fans need to realize reality.
    & Taylor…
    BUILD A FUCKING BRIDGE AND GET OVER IT. YOU SUCK.

    one thing about the performance: she is absolutely tone deaf. Almost as bad as the Grammy performance which was just AWFUL.
    She needs to call up her vocal coach, seriously.

    The song: mediocre just like all her songs. She is no lyrical genius, she needs to take the song Kanye wrote for her and sing it because her songs are just bleh. All the same.

    this is sad. she actually wrote a song about it???? and then sang it the next year in front of him and EVERYONE??? bitch is so naive. get over it honey. look to the future, not the past.

    It sounds like a decent song, but she didn’t sing it very well which is typical of her. And why would you write a song about the whole kanye thing??? Seriously? it was a year ago and its probably made you even more famous so I wouldn’t be complaining too much. This is just lke the joe break up, she milks everything for as long as she can. P.S. – this is not what I meant by write something else besides a ‘love song’

    shes still singing about what happened between her and joe 2 years ago… did you people honestly think she would get over what kanye did? she is best at playing the victim… shes an attention whore and everyone knows it.. she needs to get over herself. im so sick and tired hearing her whie all the time.

    actually i think it was a pretty classy thing to do, it was the first VMA’s since what happened with Kanye, people were talking about it again, she could of been sarcastic and called him out but she didnt she kind of defended him and shes said plenty of times before that she writes about her life, i assume having the mic took of you in the middle of your acceptance speech gives you quite a bit of material to be honest haha

  • caseyy..<3

    all this “taylor get over it” stuff is stupid, shes a song writer wat do you expect her to write about?

  • Anonymous

    musicians usually do write from the own expierences its called heart and soul but when you have an artist singing or talking about something years later it just gets old and in taylors case it shows inmaturity. i love her singing she has an amazing voice but its just boring now. she needs to grow up as much as kanye does.she needs to come up with something original. shes very needy.

  • Anonymous

    isnt taylor capable of coming up with something original? it doesnt always have to be about her.

  • ColdAsU

    She released onesong about Joe on FEARLESS and she went on tour because fearless was a huge success she performed everysong but 2 from fearless.She couldn’t take F&A out of the setlist because she is over him.All of her songs are written about someone in mind,Taylor also performed alot of songs from her first cd…I guess she’s not over them to? Taylor can’t just stop singing a song because she is over someone.She got her career because of her songwrittening.She writes about people in her life,people who were in life,who she wished would be in her life and everything that happends to her.

  • Anonymous

    The one’s who are dissing Taylor and saying she needs to move on.. Really need to go to school and learn to listen because she did move on. The fucking song is about forgiving that jackass. While you guys are criticizing her she is still earning more money then all of you. Her so called ” Horrible singing” Is honestly making her 40+ million dollars richer. Therefore Taylor doesn’t give a flying shit what you guys really think.

    i dont know why people are tsaying she is not classy for performing this song. the song is like forgiving him, “your string of lights are still bright to me” she doesnt hate him, she still respects him as a person “who you are isnt what you’ve done” his mistakes dont define him, basically this is really good timing bc Kanye just apologized to her on twitter and now this is an “i forgive you” song. but i think it wasnt her best performance, maybe it was just this recording but i will always love her :D

    LMFAO. supporting artists? uh, sorry honey but OU isn’t a fucking fan page. everyone is allowed to make any sort of comment that they want – positive or negative. taylor swift sucks at singing. it’s not an opinion, it’s FACT. girl can’t sing a note in tune. she only sounds decent on her album (which is due to all that fixing in the recording studio). get your head out of her pale, bony ass.

  • Urgency

    Erm. I will just never be into her music I guess. Plus, she needs to take singing lessons. If she were just doing this for fun, then that’s something completely different. However, it’s her job. It just makes it impossible to take her seriously everytime you hear her live.

  • Anonymous

    Swifty’s my favorite artist. Her recorded works are breathtaking. I just wish she could sing live. I honestly, truly, whole-heartedly do. Anyone who says this is vocally impressive is lying to themselves. The lyrics are fine, but the voice really kills it.

  • ColdAsU

    I find it really funny that ALOT of people think this song was JUST written.It seems like alot of people don’t get the meaning of the song/lyrics.Kanye was the one that kept talking about it and apologizing maybe she performed this song to prove to him,fans and non-fans she really forgives him.Only once she said she forgave him (she said that on the view) publicly and alot of people didn’t believe her,She never said she hated him (maybe she hated what he did but theres a difference)
    Taylor did sound sketchy at most moments but there were some decent moments…Truthfully,I don’t care if she can’t sing great most of the time.I don’t like music because of how the artist sounds live.
    No one knows when she wrote this song but it wasn’t recent I saw it on Darkbluetennesse (.)com for some time.

  • Mary

    I’ve never really had a problem with Taylor Swift, never really formed much of an opinion on her. So when she was interrupted last year I felt bad for her, but the performance she gave the other night was a major turn-off I think. It was VERY condescending. The song was very preachy, what is this BS with the “You are an innocent” Seriously WTF? It was a little like “We are all children of God, and we are all innocent, and I forgive you because I am such a good person” Honestly I kind of just want this girl to shut up. YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM TAYLOR SO STOP ACTING LIKE ONE! You’ve won many awards, have hundreds of thousands of fans, you manage to be very successful while only have mediocre talent. You are lucky so stop with all this pity me bull! What Kanye did was rude but shouldn’t have “ruined” the event for you. You still won an award, got 1000000x more air time than you would have if it hadn’t happened, therefore getting more fans and attention. It was a major career boost.

    There are real victim’s in the world. While you are lingering on about how someone interrupted one of your acceptance speeches, people are suffering from real problems. Move on and appreciate everything that you have.

    In regards to Kanye’s performance, it made him 1000x more likable in my opinion. . Also last years events had a much larger effect on Kanye than on Taylor. He lost major fanbase and everyone was against him. He seemed real. It seemed open and honest and had an edge to it. After last night I am team Kanye. We all mess up sometimes.

  • ColdAsU

    Please tell me you actually listened to the song! She only once spoke about the event.She said she wasn’t mad at him and that everything is ‘fine’.I guess she played the victim role about Joe Jonas because of how she talked about it but she didn’t about Kanye.She talked about it once in interview and wrote a damn song.As you said “We all mess up sometimes.” maybe to you and some other people Taylor thinnk messed up for singing this song but if you can say that about what Kanye did why can’t you say that about Taylor singing a song about that? Taylor wasn’t blaming Kanye for anything.Its not her fault that people think they should feel bad for her.To Taylor he did one thing wrong to her,she said she forgave him,no one believed her,people still felt bad for her.Taylor told everyone in the song that he’s innocent in her eyes yet some fans don’t believe her and non-fans think she wants attention.If Taylor wanted attention she would’ve staged on stage a little longer instead walking right off stage.

    Well the entire performance appeared to be dedicated to the event, at least the clip from last year at the beginning would indicate that. And even though you say she wasn’t trying to play the victim, her lyrics sounded as if she had been abused or something if you didn’t know what she was referring to! And just the overall performance seemed melodramatic, and trying to seem vulnerable walking barefoot and everything. Yes I do think Taylor messed up with this song, but like I said everybody messes up sometimes and that applies to everyone.
