Taylor Swift had a good excuse as to why she wasn’t at the 2016 VMAs
It wasn’t because she wasn’t nominated for a VMA this year, Taylor Swift wasn’t at the 2016 MTV VMAs because she had jury duty in Nashville Tennessee.
So Taylor was in fact obligated by law not to attend the 2016 VMAs. Taylor could of like flipped Kanye West off at least real quick or something from the audience, just after he took to the stage with his theme song being “Famous”, and it would of been something acceptable even for a lady to do. What Taylor was wearing as a juror for the pictures with she and the other jurors, kinda resembled some kind of dress made from a judges robe or something though. Kinda hardcore.
