VMA planning is super-difficult, and it’s all because of Taylor Swift

Remember when choosing a partner for a primary school tour was one of the biggest moments of the academic year?

You want to go with her, but she wants to go with someone else, but she promised and now you're going to have to call in a favour.

Well, it turns out schoolyard etiquette is no different to the world of celebrity as an MTV exec recently revealed when discussing the seating plan for the upcoming Video Music Awards.

According to those in the know, Hollywood's biggest and brightest are given the opportunity to request the artist they would like to share an arm rest with on the big night, and it sounds like Taylor Swift causes serious headaches for party planners.

Commenting on the confusion that arises as a result of this custom, MTV Vice President Gina Esposito explained that the Bad Blood singer is so popular that fellow celebs are chomping at the bit to cosy up with the star.

"She has so many good friends, and it was hard to figure out the ‘Taylor’ of it all in past years because so many people were requesting to sit by her and sit with her," Gina explained.

Reflecting on previous award shows, Gina said of Tay: "She’s often really requested."

Something tells us that that mightn't be the case this year…
