Taylor Swift Makes Kanye West VMAs Joke on Gift for Ed Sheeran
Four years later and the Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift VMAs jokes keep coming! On Monday, Aug. 19, Swift's tour mate Ed Sheeran posted a photo on Instagram of a homemade jar of jam Swift made for him that included a dig at her erstwhile hater Kanye West on the label.
"Taylor made me some jam. Amazing," Sheeran, 22, captioned the photo. On the label, Swift, 23, wrote, "Yo Ed, I'm really happy 4 you and I'm gonna let you finish but this is the best JAM OF ALL TIME -- T."
The message directly references West's rant from the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when he ambushed Swift on stage while she was accepting the award for Best Female Video for "You Belong With Me." "Yo, Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm going to let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time," the 36-year-old rapper shouted after grabbing the mic. "One of the best videos of all time!"

Swift's jam jar isn't the first joke the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer has made at West's expense this year. Following the announcement of the 2013 Video Music Awards nominees on July 17, Swift, who was nominated for Video of the Year and Best Female Video, tweeted, "Two VMA nominations!! If you vote and get us one, I promise to keep a firmer grip on the mic this time."
Both Swift and West are expected to attend the 2013 VMAs in Brooklyn on Sunday, Aug. 25.
