At her Eras Tour concert in Mexico City, Taylor Swift took a playful dig at Kanye West’s past interruption at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. During a performance of “Champagne Problems” from the Evermore era, Swift was interrupted by fans chanting her name. She responded by saying that being interrupted this way was the best, as it involved people chanting her name—making light of the situation and drawing a contrast to Kanye’s incident.
At the 2009 MTV VMAs, Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Artist Video, claiming Beyoncé’s video was better. This led to widespread memes and a prolonged feud between the artists.
Taylor Swift’s Playful Nod to Kanye West
During the Eras Tour, Taylor Swift has playfully referenced her past feud with Kanye West multiple times. In one instance, during a surprise acoustic set, she sang “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things,” a song from her Reputation album that is believed to allude to West.
In the original lyrics, there’s a line about forgiveness, which she delivered with a sarcastic laugh, unable to keep a straight face. A similar moment occurred at an earlier tour stop in July, where she broke into laughter while singing the same song.
The lead vocalist of The Midnights recently concluded a series of four consecutive performances in Mexico City as part of her extensive Eras Tour. Following this, she is preparing for the launch of her re-recorded album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” scheduled for release in October. Subsequently, she will resume touring, with the current schedule indicating the tour’s conclusion in November in Toronto.
