Harry Styles On Taylor Swift VMA Jibe: "She Likes A Joke"
As bandmate Liam Payne tells T-Swizzle to "get over it"...
Wednesday, August 28, 2013 - 08:58
When picking up her Best Female Video Moonman for I Knew You Were Trouble at the ceremony on Sunday (August 25), Swift seemed to reference her failed romance with Styles in her acceptance speech.
After being handed the gong by Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, Taylor exclaimed: "I want to thank the person that inspired this song, he knows who he is! And now I've got one of these."
Hazza has now commented on T-Swizzle's speech, telling Extra at the NYC premiere of movie This Is Us: "It's alright, she likes a joke. I like a joke as much as the next guy, so it's all good."
When quizzed about the photo of himself, Taylor and mutual friend Ed Sheeran at a VMA after party, Styles added: "Yeah, I went for a drink with Ed and some friends. It was good."
While Harry has dismissed Swift's actions, his bandmates Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan instead jumped to his defence, with Louis telling Us Weekly: "We were a bit confused.
"We thought she was actually calling out Niall [Horan], so the whole thing's a bit confusing."
Payne agreed with the reporter that Taylor's remarks were "lame", before adding: "I just thought it was a bit not needed. I mean, you just won an award. It's like, 'Concentrate on yourself!'"
In a separate interview with Vulture, Payne went on to joke: "When she said those things about Niall, we were very, very pissed off."
Horan then chipped in that he was "so upset that she would go writing songs about" him, while Payne continued: "Hashtag get over it... I was going to do a Kanye! It's the best video of all time!"
Liam then joked "Kanye himself" prevented him from interrupting Swift's speech.
Taylor is yet to comment on the episode.
