Sorry, Taylor! No one was singing Swift’s praises during the VMAs last night, especially with archenemy Kanye West and ex Calvin Harris taking the spotlight.

After winning the Best Male Video award for his “This Is What You Came For,” Calvin made a thank you speech via video message, making no mention of ghost co-writer and former girlfriend, Taylor Swift.

"I had a show tonight in the U.K., or else I would definitely be there," he said, snubbing his ex. "Thanks, Rihanna, from the bottom of my heart. You’re a superstar." As Radar readers know, the pair’s split turned sour when Taylor was spotted getting cozy with Tom Hiddleston just weeks later. To make matters worse, Harris also accused America’s Sweetheart of smearing his reputation in the press, writing on Twitter: “Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though.”

And he wasn’t the only one bashing Tay-Tay at the VMAs. Enemy no. 1, Kanye West, couldn’t help but give her a hateful shout-out as he premiered his new music video for “Fade.”

During a four-minute rant, the rapper didn’t shy away from calling out the pop princess, saying: “People say, 'Oh but you have that beef with Taylor,’ but I love all y’all — that’s why I called her.”

That wasn’t all, though. Kanye managed to makes digs at several others during his meandering speech, including ex Amber Rose and wife Kim’s famous hookup buddy, Ray J.

“For people to understand just how blessed we are, it was an expression of our now, our fame right now, us on the inside of the TV. You know, just to — to put Anna Wintour next to Donald Trump,” he said of his controversial music video for the song “Famous.” “I mean, I put Ray J in it, bruh! This is fame, bro. Like — I see you, Amber.”

“My wife is a G,” West continued as Kim Kardashian beamed up at him from the audience. “Not a lot of people’s wives let them say that.”

The singer was first caught in a lie after Kim released videos proving that hubby Kanye had, in fact, called the "Shake It Off" singer about the lyrics in “Famous” before releasing it. But the 26-year-old maintains that they never agreed the rapper would refer to her as “that b*tch" in the song.
