AceShowbiz - Snagging the Video of the Year award, Taylor Swift was among the winners at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. Her big moment immediately became the talk of the town, but that was not the only thing that caught people's attention. It was John Travolta's flub that also set the tongues wagging, and now the singer's reaction to the awkward moment has been revealed.
The actor was tapped to hand over the coveted award for Taylor, who won the category for her "You Need to Calm Down" video. Celebrating the win, she brought her video co-stars, including drag queen Jade Jolie, to the stage, and the crowded stage seemingly confused John as he was later caught on camera trying to give the Moonman to Jade who donned similar blonde hairstyle to Taylor's.
Toddrick Hall shared more insights into the John's faux pass after moving backstage during his appearance in the Wednesday, August 28 episode of "The Jerry O' Show". "I saw it," Toddrick, who served as an executive producer in the award-winning video, said of the iconic moment. "Yeah I saw it and we talked about it backstage and then Taylor thought it was hilarious."
As for Jade, Toddrick felt that the mistake was the proof that she did a very good job as Taylor's doppelganger. "She is a fantastic drag queen but everyone knows that she is like the Taylor Swift doppelganger, so I think that is the highest compliment he could ever pay her," said Toddrick. As if it wasn't obvious enough, Toddrick went on saying that John "was very confused."
The hilarious moment was caught on camera for everyone to see. Jade looked taken aback when John tried to give the Moonman to her. And upon realization, they both laughed before John turned his head to the side looking for the lady of the hour.
"Lmaoo well she looks exactly like her which it's [sic] insane," one fan commented on Instagram about the mistake. "On what planet is that John Travolta thou?" added another user, while one other dubbed it "GAG OF THE CENTURY."
Thankfully, the award was later successfully handed to Taylor, who snagged two Moon Persons that night. During her acceptance speech, the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer thanked her supporters and shed light on the LGBTQ community as well as the Equality Act. "In this video several points were made, so you voting for this video means that you want a world, where we’re all treated equally under the law," she said.
