Taylor Swift's PR machine can not be happy with information that her enemies Kanye West and ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris acquired nominations Tuesday for MTV Music Video Awards. Even worse, rap star provocateur West and disgruntled ex Harris obtained nominations for will work that are straight connected to hugely embarrassing moments for the pop star. West received a nomination for Video of the Year and Ideal Male Video for his controversial "Well known," a song in which he boasts that Swift may well rest with him and that he created her popular. The video capabilities a tableau of West, Swift and other celebrities -- or some wax-get the job done-like doppelgangers -- splayed out, naked in a bed, publish-orgy. The song is at the center of what is arguably the celebrity feud of the yr, a high-stakes battle involving Swift and West and West's wife, Kim Kardashian. Swift produced very public claims that she was blindsided to understand, when the song was released, that it includes lyrics that refer to her sleeping with West and that have West boasting about building her well-known. Kardashian was not happy with Swift's protests -- to gain publicity or some moral high ground above her husband -- so she launched an audio in which Swift is heard in a quite pleasant mobile phone conversation with West, giving him her blessing for the line "I truly feel like me and Taylor could nevertheless have intercourse." Nevertheless, Swift continues to claim that West by no means played her the whole track, so couldn't have offered permission to the line that manufactured her especially angry: "I manufactured that bitch renowned." As for Harris, he picked up two nominations, one for his collaboration with Rihanna on the song "This is What You Came For," which he secretly co-wrote with Swift. Final month, it was sensationally revealed that Swift wrote the song for Harris when they have been together, but she insisted she use a pseudonym, Nils Sjoberg, on the credits so that their romance and collaboration would not overshadow the release. Meanwile, Swift will walk away from this year's present, to be broadcast dwell from Madison Square Backyard Aug. 28, with no wins. That's mainly because she was not nominated. She was the show's star diva last 12 months when she acquired 10 nominations for her #squad-celebrating video, "Undesirable Blood." US Weekly suggests that Taylor simply wasn't eligible for a nomination this 12 months, offered that her album "1989" came out in late 2014. Even so, Cosmopolitan points out that her music videos for "Wildest Dreams" and "Out of the Woods" premiered at the 2015 VMA pre-display and in December 2015 respectively, which technically should make them eligible for nomination.
