Did Taylor Swift fart on live TV at the VMAs? It’s the new question of our times. Forget the meaning of life, the continuing existence of Chloe Mafia and the square root of 69 – EVERYONE’s wondering just what that noise was when the camera panned over to Tay on Sunday night.
Luckily, some quick-thinking internet monkeys managed to capture the offending squeak on Vine, so here it is for your pleasure:
What was that? Karlie Kloss looks like she heard it a split-second after the rest of us, and does her best not to react too hard. But Hailee Steinfeld covers her nose straightaway, which really gives the game away…
An MTV spokesperson has had an absolute balls of a day trying to rectify the stench of the rumours. In a statement, the rep said: “MTV can confirm that the sound heard in the moment Taylor Swift introduced her new music video, Wildest Dreams, was isolated to a production microphone.
“There was absolutely no possibility of it being Taylor or anyone in her party’s microphones picking up ambient sounds.”
BAHAHAHAHAHA @ ambient sounds. Incredible.
Imagine Tay’s marketing team all sitting on a conference call to MTV to bash out that statement. Imagine Tay’s social media manager knocking back the Advil and just bellowing at an MTV intern to “SORT IT THE F**K OUT” before Katy Perry gets wind (FNAR) of that Vine and starts penning a revenge track. Just imagine what it’s like to be Taylor Swift on 1 September 2015 with half the world thinking you just passed wind on live TV.
