Lots of Swifties are hoping that someone pulls a Kanye [so ironic] at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, as Taylor Swift did not receive a Video of the Year nomination for the iconic Look What You Made Me Do.
Wow. Did VMAs just really did Taylor Swift dirty? Wow. 💩— stream delicate x (@brunsweeran) July 16, 2018
LWYMMD actually made its debut at last year's VMAs, and broke the record for most YouTube global streams in 24 hours [43.2 million views] -- so the fact that it somehow wasn't nominated for VOTY is more than a little surprising.
No #VMA Video of the Year or Best Pop noms for @taylorswift13 and "Look What You Made Me Do?" Really, @MTV? You draw #VMA viewers by premiering it on your show last year and then don't give it the recognition it deserves? 🤔— Tiffany Taylor (@_tiffanytaylor) July 16, 2018
The video did receive three technical nominations, though -- it's up for best art direction, best visual effects and best editing. [Well deserved, obviously, but they're not enough to make up for the obvious injustice here.]
No word from the snake queen herself, at this point [and I'm sure she'll maintain her silence]. What are your thoughts on all this?!
let’s not pretend that lwymmd wasn’t one of the most iconic pop culture moments of all time. i mean it broke the vevo record FOR A REASON pic.twitter.com/ODKz8MoCeB— malek🇫🇷 (@witnessinners) July 16, 2018
Don’t go to the VMA’s sis they don’t deserve you @taylorswift13— ✨ (@screamingcoIor) July 16, 2018
EXCUSE ME? @vmas Taylor Swift did not just bathe in diamonds, drag other artists, use a plane, rode a motorcycle, bring back her old personalities, serve us amazing choreo, and break the 24 hour Vevo record for you to just snub her like that. she clearly had the video of the year pic.twitter.com/s3QdxuPC9A— pfn (@PopFactsNews) July 16, 2018
