Apparently Everybody Wants to Sit Next to Taylor Swift at the VMAs
Taylor Swift might not have gotten any VMA nominations this year, but she’s still popular af among celebs if one MTV exec is to believed.
Gina Esposito, vice president for MTV music and talent, revealed to Cosmopolitan that every year celebrities send in requests for who theyâ€™d like to spend the night with and itâ€™s always incredibly difficult to figure out who to sit next to Taylor â€œbecause so many people [are] requesting to sit by her and sit with her.â€
Now, there’s a chance Gina’s only revealingÂ this in hopes that Taylor will read it and forgive MTV for nominating her for literally zero awards this year.
But according to her, Tay isÂ so popular thatÂ even if artists donâ€™t get sat down next to Taylor, sometimes they just say fuck it and sit with her anyway.
â€œYouâ€™ll have artists who rearrange seats in real time so they sit together,” Esposito reveals. “As long as youâ€™ve got eyes on that, to say, â€˜Selena Gomez moved so sheâ€™s by Taylor, weâ€™re good,â€™ then itâ€™s all right. If we donâ€™t seat them together, they find their way to each other anyway.â€
Of course, thereâ€™s a good chance that this year Taylor Swift wonâ€™t even be going to the VMAs seeing as MTV decidedÂ they were over T Swift and didn’t throw any nominations her way, but you never know.
Stranger things have happened at the VMAs and especially if she thinks it’ll give her image a boost, we’ll sure Taylor will be there front row center, surrounded by all herÂ squad members who haven’t turned their backs on her yet.
