Worst: Taylor Swift's "Innocent"
Taylor Swift's been mum for a whole year after the Kanye West incident from the 2009 VMAs, and you know what? A year is too long to still be talking about it, and it's definitely too late to bring it back up, particularly in the show's Saddest Little Melodrama, starring Swift.
The track "Innocent" sounds as though Swift has forgiven the rapper's childish behavior, but the presentation told a different story. It kicked off with the misty water colored replay of the incident on little television screens, amping up Swift's apparent devastation. The 20-year-old then "plays" a dobro and wah wah wah-ed softly in front of the set's busted windows (they're broken like her heart, get it?). While singing solo, shoeless, in the middle of the giant circular stage took some bravery, she still performed wobbly, as a wide-eyed victim of West's assy antics, even if West wasn't there to pan to.
Last week, one couldn't help but to feel like West was capitalizing on and exploiting the debacle for his own good. Now, it seems like Swift is doing the same.
