Taylor Swift’s MTV Video Music Awards Promo: Kevin Hart Thinks He’s Taylor’s Muse

We’re still trying to figure out who the subject is of Taylor Swift‘s disdain in her new single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”, but MTV VMAs host Kevin Hart thinks he’s solved the mystery — it’s him, obviously! In the latest promo for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, Hart interrupts Swift playing her kiss-off song to berate her for writing a song about him. “I met you like one time two years ago. For like, five minutes,” she says.

Kevin then pulls out a photo of the two of them together, but Swift isn’t falling for it. “That’s your face Photoshopped on someone else’s body,” deadpans Taylor. (It’s Jake Gyllenhaal‘s body, for those wondering. And yes, we knew that without having to research. Perhaps, like Kevin Hart, we’re a bit too invested in Taylor’s love life.)

Taylor Swift — as well as Green Day, One Direction, Alicia Keys and Pink — will take the stage at the 2012 MTV VMAs, airing Thursday September 6 on MTV.
