The Grammys are this weekend (February 8, if you want to get specific — which I do, thank you) and we've got some bad news: the nominated Taylor Swift will not be performing live.
Cue: sobbing. See also: I know, guys. I mean, I personally have tickets to her concert in October (thank you, worst seats in the house), but I'd still like to see her perform "Style" live and in colour, and as a way for me to confirm that it is, indeed, about Harry.
Anyway, here's what she had to say:
"Hey guys!" she wrote on Tumblr. "A lot of you have been asking about the Grammys this week and I just wanted to give you an update. I'm really excited to be nominated for 3 Grammys this year and even more excited that I'll be there having a dance party/rage fest in the audience. I will also be presenting the award for Best New Artist."
"Since my whole life is wrapped up and entangled in the planning of The 1989 World Tour right now, I'm not going to be performing on the Grammys this year. I need this time to focus only on the tour. I hope I'll see you out there at one of the stadiums this summer having a rage fest of your own!"
YOU WILL, TAYLOR. But also: what a buzzkill. True, Madonna, Sia, Ed Sheeran, Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Eric Church, Pharrell, Usher, Lady Gaga, and others will be performing, but still. Some of us wanted to see Tay-Tay's acting chops as one would.
Here's the rage-fest, guys!
