Here's why Taylor Swift (probably) wasn't at the the BMAs
You may have noticed that a certain superstar was missing from the Billboard Music Awards. Even though she was nominated for eight awards(!!!), Taylor Swift was M.I.A. last night. So naturally, everyone has been dying to know where she was.
We don’t know for sure, but based on various reports throughout the Internet, Swift may have been at boyfriend Calvin Harris‘s side as he recuperated from a scary car accident he was in on Friday night.
E! reported that Harris was a passenger in a Cadillac SUV when it was struck by a VW Bug convertible driven by a teenage girl as she crossed the center lane.
No one in either vehicle sustained life-threatening injuries, but both Harris and one of the passengers in the other vehicle were taken to the hospital.
Of course the actual events from the hospital haven’t been confirmed, and neither has the reason for Swift’s absence at the BMAs. But based on everything we know about her super loving and committed relationship with Harris, it’s very reasonable to believe that she would choose helping her boyfriend recuperate over an award show.
At the BMAs, Swift won the award for Top Touring Artist — and she also won the award for best partner! We hope Harris and everyone else involved in the crash are on the mend.
