She knew they were trouble! Taylor Swift threw some subtle shade at her ex-boyfriends when she took the stage at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, Aug. 10.

The "Sweeter Than Fiction" singer, 24, was both an award winner and a presenter at the show, held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, taking home the honor of Choice Female Country Artist, and introducing the category of Choice Actor in a Drama Movie, where she took the airtime to jibe at some of the men who have been in her life.

"Oh hey guys," Swift said casually as she stepped up to the mic. "You know we've had some amazing memories here together at the Teen Choice Awards. And so, I was excited when they asked me to come and present this award, because no one knows more about dramatic males than I do." Said males include Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Joe Jonas, and Conor Kennedy. See more pics of Taylor's famous exes.

Swift's nod to her "dramatic males" elicited a big laugh from the crowd, before she introduced the nominees of Ansel Elgort for The Fault in Our Stars, Bradley Cooper for American Hustle, Russell Crowe for Noah, Jason Dohring for Veronica Mars and Jon Hamm for Million Dollar Arm. Elgort, 20, took home the award. 

Looking beautiful in a chic two-piece crop top green outfit by Novis, Charlotte Olympia shoes and EFFY jewelry, Swift was also up against one of her most famous exes in a category at the Teen Choice Awards. Harry Styles beat out Swift, as well as her bestie Selena Gomez, pal Demi Lovato, and Austin Mahone for Choice Smile. 

Styles' boy band One Direction dominated the night, also taking home Choice Music Group, Choice Love Song for "You & I," Choice Break-Up Song for "Story of My Life," and Choice Summer Tour, among other awards.
