Taylor Lautner Makes Rare Comment
It’s a true Taylors story, as actor Taylor Lautner’s wife, Taylor Dome, was all of us with her reaction to him spilling tea about that infamous Taylor Swift and Kanye West MTV VMAs moment.
In a video from their podcast “The Squeeze” posted Wednesday on Tik Tok, Dome asked Lautner, “If you could go back to any time in your life, what would it be and what would you say to yourself?
“Probably the 2009 VMAs, when I presented the to Taylor and I didn’t know the Kanye affair wasn’t a skit,” he said, literally knocking his Dome down in surprise and say, “I am dead.”
West, who now goes by “Ye,” took the stage and interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech to announce, “I’ll let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos ever!”
Dome pointed out that Lautner and Swift, who briefly dated in 2009, had just gone public with their then-relationship.
Lautner explained that he presented the award to Swift and “took back five steps and was standing five feet behind her” when West jumped onto the stage as she spoke.
“I can barely hear it. I can’t see them,” Lautner said. “I just guess the whole thing was a practiced and rehearsed sketch, because otherwise why would Kanye West jump on stage interrupting Taylor Swift? It just didn’t make sense.
It wasn’t until Swift turned around and could see her face that he realized it wasn’t planned, Lautner said.
In 2016, Lautner confirmed that he was the inspiration for Swift’s 2010 song “Back to December”. He and Dome got married last year.
