Did one Taylor Swift or one of her squad members fart while they were premiering her ‘Wildest Dreams’ video at the VMAs on Aug. 31? Watch this video and let us know if you think the suspicious sound is one of the ladies passing gas!
Celebrities may be just like us, after all! After Taylor Swift, 25, announced the premiere of her “Wildest Dreams” video at the Video Music Awards on Aug. 31, fans were buzzing that she or one of her squad members farted on-camera. Re-watch the moment here and decide for yourself! To hear more about Taylor Swift, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
The moment in question occurs toward the end of the clip, when the “Bad Blood” singer — whose album, 1989, you can buy here — is saying, “Here’s the video for “Wildest Dreams!”‘ At the exact moment, she also happens to crouch down, and it does sound suspiciously like she, or someone around her, had accidentally let loose.
But MTV released a statement after all the buzz, and revealed that the noise wasn’t a bodily function. “MTV can confirm that the sound heard in the moment Taylor Swift introduced her new music video, “Wildest Dreams,” was isolated to a production microphone,” the network said. “There was absolutely no possibility of it being Taylor or anyone in her party’s microphones picking up ambient sounds.”
LOL, well, that’s one way to word it! The sound did appear to pop up way too quickly, and with a few of the girls, plus the red carpet hosts, holding microphones, it’s definitely possible that there was some sort of electronic issue that caused the unfortunate noise.
Let’s focus on what’s really important here, though: How AMAZING the “Wildest Dreams” video is. The clip stars Taylor as a retro, young Elizabeth Taylor-esque leading lady, with Scott Eastwood as her costar. The pair get hot and heavy on the set of a movie, but their off-screen relationship falls apart, and by the time the film premieres, they’re not together anymore — and Taylor’s character is heartbroken. IT IS SO GOOD, YOU GUYS.
