Taylor Swift won't be in attendance at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards this weekend.
An insider connected to Swift and the VMAs confirmed that the "Wildest Dreams" hitmaker won't be joining other artists when the MTV awards show returns to New York City on Aug. 28, according to PEOPLE. Despite the fact that Swift is currently in the Big Apple, the source said she “was never scheduled to attend the VMAs."
Swift, who released her last album "1989" two years ago in Nov. 2014, is not up for any awards at the VMAs this year, though two of her music videos, "Wildest Dreams" and "Out of the Woods," off her latest album were both eligible. However, Calvin Harris and Rihanna's "This Is What You Came For," which the 26-year-old singer secretly co-wrote with her ex-boyfriend under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg, has been nominated for Best Collaboration, Us Weekly reported.
But while Swift has decided to skip this year's festivities, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have already been confirmed for the VMAs. Kardashian will be presenting an award, while West will reportedly take the stage for four minutes, TMZ has learned. The music video for the rapper's controversial song "Famous," which mentions Swift and takes credit for her fame, is up for several awards, including Video of the Year.
After her Snapchat and Instagram drama with the couple last month, Swift might not be so eager to run into the Wests at the VMAs this year, especially since there's a big chance the rapper will be performing "Famous."
Swift and West's feud started at the VMAs six years ago when the "Life of Pablo" rapper interrupted her speech by saying Beyoncé should have won her award. Last year, Swift also made headlines when she presented the rapper-turned-designer with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Aside from West, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande and Future will also perform at the awards show. Catch all your favorite artists at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards when it airs on MTV on Sunday, Aug. 28 at 9 p.m. ET.
