Taylor Swift maybe one of the most successful stars of our time but that does not stop her from letting her hair down! The 29-year-old recently received a whopping 10 nominations for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards.
‘Drunk Taylor’ began trending on Twitter this weekend after videos of the artist partying with friends and singing along to her own track went viral.
Laverne Cox, one of the many celebs featured in the You Need To Calm Down video, posted video from a gathering hosted by Swift Saturday night. The woman of the hour could be seen singing along to the hit with Cox and fellow video co-stars Chester Lockhart and Hayley Kiyoko.
Also at the event were Justin Mikita, HAIM, Hanna Hart and RuPaul’s Drag Race alum A’keria Davenport. Swift wore a multi-colored sequined dress with cutouts on the shoulders as she tussled her hair and danced with her friends.
She recently earned 10 VMA nominations for her tracks Me! and YNTCD, tying with Ariana Grande on the leader board. YNTCD is up for Video of the Year against Grande’s equally hyped Thank U, Next, which came out last November.
The video for Swift’s single was released during Pride Month in June, and it was lauded as a Pride anthem with several nods to the LGBTQ community.
Its Swift’s third time being nominated for the coveted award, following the 2013 track I Knew You Were Trouble and 2015’s Bad Blood, which she won with collaborator Kendrick Lamar.
This makes her one of 21 artists to receive the nomination three times, along with Kanye West and Beyoncé, who leads alongside Eminem with seven Video of the Year nominations.
The seven-time VMA winner is also set to perform at the awards show, which airs August 26.
