"Thirty-two and still growing up now; who you are is not what you did. You are still an innocent." - lyrics from Taylor Swift's "forgiveness ballad." In case you haven't heard the big news, Taylor Swift performed at last night's MTV Video Music Awards a song dedicated to Kanye West. Last year, Kanye hijacked Tay-Tay's acceptance speech, an egomaniacal move that rightly brought a storm of criticism, and Taylor took this year's show as a chance to officially and musically forgive him. Everyone seems to think this was really sweet. I'll tell you what I think: OH SNAP! I mean, come on. Taylor Swift, who is 20 years old and sings lyrics like "She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers!" told Kanye West that he is a child. Excellent.
P.S. Stay tuned for our "VMA Wrap Up" column, which I'll post later tonight. Meat dresses, puberty, and Chelsea, oh my!
