If you haven’t heard already from literally all of the internet Louisville’s lovely Jade Jolie was recently mistaken for Taylor Swift at the Video Music Awards. On Monday night Jolie and several other stars of Swift’s “You need to calm down” video went on stage with Swift to accept the Video of the Year award, and Travolta, quite reasonably mistook Jolie for Swift and initially tried to hand Jolie the award. Jolie, politely declined of course and it all went down in viral history after that.
“I was super flattered! I was, like, ‘Get out of here!’ Clearly I was doing my job,” Green laughed. “Before we could have even realized what happened, it was being posted online and stuff like that. Taylor laughed, and she said I should have took it. She was so sweet.”
Travolta’s inability to tell the two performers apart made Jolie a top trending item on social media Tuesday.
Swift’s “You need to calm down” features several well-known drag queens and is a song about LGBT inclusion. The video has more than 122 million views.
