Evoke.ie LOS ANGELES-Whether it’s a case of sour grapes or fear of a reprisal from Kimye, Taylor Swift is staying well away from this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Taylor hasn’t been nominated for any awards and is doing her best to avoid Kim Kardashian and Kanye West after their infamous online argument.

It’s in stark contrast to last year when she headlined the VMAs, picked up Video of the Year and performed with Nicki Minaj.

Although the awards will be held in New York this year and Taylor’s been spotted in town, the songstress won’t be attending the star-studded bash.

Last year’s VMA’s saw a gracious Taylor forgive egomaniac Kanye for his 2009 stage interruption and she even presented him with an award.

But after Kanye called her in his controversial track Famous and Kim released snapchats of secretly recorded phone calls between Kanye and Taylor, Taylor saw red. She threatened the couple with lawyers and countless other celebrities waded into the fray.

The Mail Online also reports Taylor’s relationship with heartthrob Tom Hiddleston is on shaky ground and Taylor doesn’t want to attend by herself.

Poor Taylor…if only she could just ‘shake it off’…
