Whatever, Taylor! The guys of One Direction were totally not amused by her antics at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards and they’re completely supporting their band mate Harry Styles. Read on for more details and find out why Liam Payne said Taylor’s behavior was ‘lame.’
At the One Direction: This is Us premiere in New York City on Aug. 26, Taylor Swift‘s recent disses were fresh on everyone’s mind, but One Direction kept a mature, humorous outlook on Tay’s not so friendly acceptance speech on Aug. 25.

“When she said those things about Niall, we were very, very pissed off,” Liam Payne jokingly told Vulture. Niall Horan chimed in, “I was so upset that she would go writing songs about me after all we’ve been through.” Liam ended with, “Hashtag get over it … I was going to do a Kanye! It’s the best video of all time!”
In all seriousness, Liam does thinks that her behavior was uncalled for. “I just thought it was a bit not needed. I mean, you just won an award, it’s like, concentrate on yourself!” Us Weekly asked him if he thought Tay’s actions were lame, and he agreed, “Yeah.”

So what’s really going on with Taylor and Harry? At first, Taylor mouthed to Selena Gomez that the group needed to “Shut the f**k up” when 1D was onstage presenting Best Pop Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. Taylor then called out Harry for helping her win the Best Female Video VMA, saying “I also wanna thank the person who inspired this song, who knows exactly who he is, because now I got one of these!” His bandmates looked on with awkward and amused looks on their faces, as they made it clear that they’re on Harry’s side in this situation.
From Taylor’s stings to Harry playing it cool, what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are they friends or not?
