Earlier today, I made a joke about Tom Hiddleston’s “screaming internally” face (copyright: Michael) while talking about Ed Sheeran’s maybe-marriage. Only a few hours later I stumbled upon this picture of him making a Level-6 “screaming internally” face while boarding a flight to LAX last night. Coincidence? No, probably not. I’m sure anyone could have predicted Tom would make that face on his way back to Los Angeles. After all, If I knew I was a 5-hour flight away from my next round of LOOK AT HOW IN LOVE WE ARE!! photo ops with Taylor Swift, I’d make that same face too.
Tom flew back to Los Angeles last night from New York, and The Daily Mail thinks he rushed back to “console” Taylor after finding out that Slytherin’s mascot didn’t receive a single MTV VMA nomination yesterday. But Gossip Cop says that Taylor doesn’t need to be consoled and she isn’t unleashing a bunch of PG expletives while throwing all the MTV VMAs she won last year into her pool. Despite UsWeekly’s report that MTV pulled a “…and none for Gretchen Weiners” on Taylor this year, she wasn’t actually snubbed. Gossip Cop says Taylor never submitted any of her eligible videos. They also say she wasn’t planning on attending this year’s ceremony since she spent the majority of last year touring rather than making videos.
Okay, but that doesn’t mean she’s not upset. Just because Taylor didn’t submit videos doesn’t mean she wasn’t expecting a couple nominations anyway. It’s like when someone invites you to their birthday party and says, “no gifts“, but you know they’re secretly wishing for a 6-foot-tall stack of presents. If Taylor’s not actually at home sulking, then why wasn’t she taking advantage of all the photographers at LAX last night? She could have waited for Tom at the arrivals gate with a handwritten sign that says “YOU’RE THE ONLY VMA I NEED: VERY MASCULINE AGENT” before jumping into his open arms. Really missed an opportunity, you two.
