VMAs Red Carpet
Here's all the action from the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards in L.A.
As expected, Taylor Swift shook what her mama gave her on Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.

The 24-year-old performed her new single “Shake It Off” with a bevy of suited male dancers.

Being Taylor, things got a little silly/awkward near the end of the song. When it looked like TSwift was going to jump from a giant 1989 sign (it’s also the name of her new album, duh), the singer talked about how there were snakes down there and proceeded to walk down to her dancers.

Watch it all go down, above.
