Video of Taylor Swift's Kanye West Song Innocent From the 2010 MTV VMAs

Video: Taylor Swift Debuts Her Kanye West Song, "Innocent," at the VMAs — Love It or Over It?

Taylor Swift sang a brand-new track from her upcoming album, Speak Now, at the VMAs just minutes ago. The song was widely reported to be about the Kanye West incident from last year's show and the theme was confirmed when her performance started with footage from the famous interruption. It was the worldwide debut of the song and Taylor brought her trademark tender voice and heartfelt lyrics to the act. She apparently wrote it earlier this year about her experience with Kanye, and Justin Timberlake is a fan! So check out the highly-anticipated single and tell us — love it or over it?

She can't sing, she can't act. Her whole career is based on pity.

I'm a Taylor Swift fan - I think she is so talented and graceful. However, I didn't like THIS song at all and I normally like all of her songs...I have her CD and listen all the way through. This was just a stunt that confronted a stale topic. She should have left it alone bc she handled it so well when it actually happened. Kanye got his, looking like a foolish jerk in front of the world.

Yeah, it seems like everyone on here is just commenting on the fact that it was a 'tacky response' to Kanye, and that they hate the media hype. ...no one is actually commenting on the content of the song... That aside, I was pleasantly surprised with it. I think it did the opposite of perpetuating drama. It was a song vocalizing that she forgives him, and that its ok to make mistakes (even at 32). I actually thought it was really touching, and agree with an above commenter about the level of maturity being uncharacteristically high for Taylor. Kanye's song wasn't exactly earth-shattering. It was almost an ode to his douchbaggery. If I were him, Taylor's song would have really prompted a serious life reevaluation. She's so much younger, and yet seems much wiser.

Everyone who wants to talk about her not hitting some notes should back off a bit, at least she is actually singing. That being said, I am not a Taylor Swift fan. I find most of her music disgustingly little girl dreamy in an unrealistic way that hurts me. Maybe that's just life experience talking, I just don't like romantic dreams. I did however like this song, perhaps because it's different than what I've heard and I do like forgiveness.

lmao, wow she can't sing....I don't pay much attention to uber commercial pop singers but I always thought she was cute...boy oh boy, she needs to work with vocal coach...her chords aren't difficult and she doesn't dance so she shouldn't be that off key

Taylor Swift is so annoying, get over it already. It's not like anybody died.

While the performance may have been a bit overly somber, I think the lyrics showed a level of maturity that's often missing from pop songs. It isn't exactly the Dixie Chicks "Not Ready to Make Nice", but it's still a heartfelt song about seeing the good in someone, despite their mistakes, which ain't a bad thing.

So over this. I didn't like the song, much too serious, and she didn't really sing it that well. She was hitting bad notes and just not a great performance. Honestly, I get that she was humiliated and all that, but she should have written Kanye a thank you song. He did for her what money or talent can't buy. Kanye's song was better

I agree...she was way too dramatic. Get over it, Taylor. Kanye made you a star. I do like Taylor Swift, but she's not so great at performing live.
