It positive appeared like John Travolta mistook “RuPaul’s Drag Race” star Jade Jolie for Taylor Swift when he was answerable for handing over the award for Video of the Year on the 2019 MTV VMAs.
Travolta was inexplicably requested to current the award Monday for Video of the Year alongside Queen Latifah. After Swift was introduced because the winner and made her approach to the stage with an entourage of associates and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” stars, a clearly puzzled Travolta tried at hand the award to Jolie.
Jolie merely laughed, and the ensuing video footage was… extremely awkward.
Jolie later retweeted a video of the second and shared a video of herself and Swift after they left the stage:
It’s not clear whether or not Travolta was joking or genuinely didn’t acknowledge that Jolie wasn’t Swift. Either method, the perceived flub was a delight to followers on social media who’ve been ready for the star to offer us one other “Adele Dazeem”-type moment.
Here’s the hilarity that Twitter wrought from the entire thing:
At the subsequent awards present John Travolta mustn’t solely announce the entire winners, he also needs to have to enter the viewers and current it to the particular person he thinks it’s.
