Taylor Swift to Kanye West: You're Still an Innocent

by at . Comments

MTV viewers saw a new side to Taylor Swift at last night's Video Music Awards.

The singer went dark and serious for "Innocent," a song off her upcoming album, "Speak Now." Many believe it was written and performance as a response to Kanye West and the embarrassing incident that took place at last year's ceremony.

Check out the lyrics and rendition below and decide for yourself...

Sang Swift at the event:

"Lost your balance on the tight rope/it's never too late to get it back... Today is never too late to be brand new... Every one of us has messed up too. I hope you remember today's never too late...to be friends with you....You're still an innocent."

Sara, Take an English class. Please? Personally, I think Taylor sounded alright. I think the song overall was beautiful. She's been classy about the whole thing and the song can apply to many more things in life besides what happened last year at the VMA's. I'm sure many people will be able to identify with the overall tone of the song.

I've seen her live many years ago with the rascal flatts when she started to come out as a new artist. She has an amazing voice and her talent musically and lyrically is definately original. She chooses to sing how she feels and writes GREAT songs many people can relate too.

I think Kanye should be banned from all awards shows that include Rock, Country & Pop Music!

people read too much in to these things. Its a song. I'm sure she couldnt care less about Kanye's incident last year. The publicity was a godsend. She probably wishes something like that would happen again.

okay, mr. bob l., have you ever won an award or been as successful as taylor swift? no. so until you can show her up, stop running your mouth about someone who you dont even know and who has never done anything to you. she writes songs about things that actually matter and that alot of ppl can relate to. so to me, shes great....dont be hating!

I have to agree with Sara - Taylor just cannot sing. I also watched the NFL kickoff and she was awful. (Followed by DMB who rocked the house making her inadequate performance more apparent.) At the last Grammy awards where Taylor sang a duet with Stevie Nicks, someone was flat the entire song; I suppose we now know it was not Stevie (not that I ever believed it was). As for writing a song about the incident - seriously? Was that moment so pivotal in her life that it deserves a song to commemorate? If that is the case, she is terribly sheltered and very naive. Yeah, Kanye is a jerk and behaved like one. Big surprise. Get over it. Giving him any more attention over the issue is giving him just what he wants. Guess you need a few more years on you to figure those things out.
