Despite various speculations and rumors about Taylor Swift and Katy Perry performing a duet at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, this crazy scenario is far from reality.
Namely, Garrett English, a producer for the MTV special event, has just spoken out about the whole shebang and said the following:
“That’s not happening as far as I know. I’ve certainly seen all the rumors flying around, but that’s not happening.”
The producer also mentioned that he is pretty excited to have Perry (32) hosting the VMA event:
“We’re incredibly lucky to have her,” said Garrett. “Obviously she has a great heritage with the show, our brand, our audience. So it’s a very easy conclusion for us. She’s been lovely and we’re having a fantastic week putting it all together.”
Swift Seems Too Busy To Think About Katy Perry
As far as Taylor Swift is concerned, the pop diva (27) has just announced that she will be dropping new music this week, so she doesn’t seem to have time to waste on her beef with Perry.
English also confirmed that there are no plans for Swift to perform with Perry this Sunday: “There’s nothing happening right now. But wouldn’t that be great?”
He sure is a funny guy.
The 2017 MTV Videos Music Awards will air on MTV Sunday, August 27, at 8 p.m. ET.
