How could anyone forget last year’s VMAs, where Kanye so infamously stole Taylor Swift’s ‘Best Female Video’ thunder? There was a lot of chatter regarding whether they both would attend this year’s VMAs, and much to the viewers delight, they not only attended, but performed. In a surprising twist, Taylor Swift debuted a new song, most likely off her unreleased album ‘Speak Now’ which seems to have been written about last year’s controversy.

Read the lyrics and tell us what YOU think!

‘Innocent’ by Taylor Swift

I guess you really did it this time
Left yourself in your warpath
Lost your balance on a tightrope
Lost your mind tryin’ to get it back

Wasn’t it easier in your lunchbox days?
Always a bigger bed to crawl into
Wasn’t it beautiful when you believed in everything?
And everybody believed in you?

It’s all right, just wait and see
Your string of lights is still bright to me
Oh, who you are is not where you’ve been
You’re still an innocent
You’re still an innocent

There’s some things you can’t speak of
But tonight you’ll live it all again
You wouldn’t be shattered on the floor now
If only you would sing what you know now then

Wasn’t it easier in your firefly-catchin’ days?
And everything out of reach, someone bigger brought down to you
Wasn’t it beautiful runnin’ wild ’til you fell asleep?
Before the monsters caught up to you?

It’s all right, just wait and see
Your string of lights is still bright to me
Oh, who you are is not where you’ve been
You’re still an innocent

It’s okay, life is a tough crowd
32, and still growin’ up now
Who you are is not what you did
You’re still an innocent

Time turns flames to embers
You’ll have new Septembers
Every one of us has messed up too

Lives change like the weather
I hope you remember
Today is never to late to
Be brand new

It’s all right, just wait and see
Your string of lights are still bright to me
Oh, who you are is not where you’ve been
You’re still an innocent

It’s okay, life is a tough crowd
32, and still growin’ up now
Who you are is not what you did
You’re still an innocent

Taylor Swift released her first set of American Greetings cards earlier this year, and now the 20-year-old star has a whole new collection of stationery that’s perfectly suited for the summer.

Written and inspired by the singer herself, the new line has 14 fresh designs that echo Taylor’s honest sentiments and cover plenty of occasions. The summery images have a “traditional with a twist” look, and each card comes with a numbered butterfly icon, which is great for fans who want to collect each of the 43 cards in Taylor’s line.

“I’ve always been fascinated by feelings and how we express them to each other,” Taylor said. “Getting to write and design these cards is a wonderful experience.”

One of the cards in the collection features “13 Happy Things,” which is a reflection of Taylor’s lucky number 13. Another one of our favorites boasts a big red heart on the cover and says: “Confession — when we first met I kinda felt like I was going to pass out every time you smiled at me. That’s how into you I was… and that’s how into you I still am.”

Staying on track and focusing on her booming career, Taylor Swift says she’s not looking for love… right now.

“There’s a lot to distract me from dating. I don’t really sit around and wallow in being alone. It’s in my comfort zone, being single,” the country singing cutie said.

Taylor continued, “I feel that a lot happens to you when you’re not looking for it, so I’m not actively looking. I don’t have a problem with being single.”

Also opening up about how she lives her life, Miss Swift dished, “I love trying to beat what I’ve done so far … I think about my next move 10 steps ahead. I’m always planning three award shows ahead. For me, planning is a productive way of stressing out about your life.”

Taylor Swift was delighted to hear the ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker has praised her as a “great songwriter” because she is such a big fan of the eccentric star.

She said: “I’m a huge fan of hers and hearing that really, really made me smile. I appreciated that.

“That absolutely made my day when I read that because I’m a huge fan of hers.”

The 20-year-old star is a particular fan of the ‘Just Dance’ singer because of her unique style.

She added: “I remember the first time I ever saw Lady Gaga on MTV’s ‘TRL’.

“She had like a leotard on and I just thought to myself, that’s so daring. Her music must be daring like that and I went home and I downloaded ‘Just Dance.’ ”

Praising Taylor’s ‘You Belong With Me’, Gaga said recently: “It’s a great song. I think it’s just because it’s very whimsical in a way that I’m not necessarily whimsical every day.”

Taylor Swift spoke with People about her new Nashville condo: ‘There are rooms where there weren’t rooms before, and I have a birdcage in my living room that is people-sized. Then there’s a pond in the living room as well, and I want to get stingrays. I don’t want people to think I’m crazy, but wouldn’t that be cool?’

My friends and I have been calling it things like ‘The Imaginarium,’ because it has all of these crazy whimsical things in it. [Songwriting] has been amazing. I’ve been writing for the last two years. I keep making new lists, which is a good sign to me.’ Her secret is in editing: ‘I bump things off when I write something new that I like better. It’s really all about honing it down.’
