Maybe that explains why Katy Perry had to postpone a whole bunch of shows on her Witness Tour; she just needs extra time to mentally prepare the stunt of the year! On August 27th, Katy Perry will host the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. According to The Daily Star UK – so yeah, you’re right to be reaching for a grain of salt – Taylor Swift might grace Katy’s stage with her presence at the MTV VMA’s.
A source tells the Daily Star that Taylor has new music that she wants to debut, and she just so happens to want to do it two Sundays from now. The source says:
“Taylor’s getting ready to return with new music and believes the VMAs could be the perfect place to do it. Discussions are currently ongoing with organisers who, despite knowing it will be a huge ratings winner, are calling it a logistical nightmare. With Katy hosting they know it will be virtually impossible to keep them apart.”
The Chuckie Finster to her Angelica Pickles, Ed Sheeran, did hint back in March that she would be releasing new music later this year. Taylor also has a history of attention-seeking at the VMA’s, and she does love making a situation all about HER. So showing up and violently yanking the spotlight away from Katy Perry would definitely recharge Taylor’s petty battery pack to full capacity.
Sounds great for Taylor. Katy? Not so much. Even though Katy has been trying for months now to bury the Lisa Frank nail file (it’s the middle school version of a hatchet, right?) and make nice with her longtime nemesis, she’s apparently not into it.
“While VMA bosses are secretly thrilled at the prospect of the arch-enemies being on stage together, Katy is rumoured to be fuming.”
The ratings for the MTV VMAs have reportedly been dropping faster than Katy’s Witness singles on the charts, so I have a feeling MTV is seriously entertaining the idea of Katy Perry introducing a surprise Taylor Swift appearance. I just hope Katy can handle it. I would advise her to start training now with this wax figure of Taylor Swift.
Katy will know she’s ready to appear on stage with Taylor when she’s able to get within 20 feet of the wax figure without throwing her mic to the floor and hissing, “You just HAD to upstage me again, didn’t you?”
