Gigi Hadid Couldn’t Tell Taylor Swift and Drag Queen Jade Jolie Apart at the VMAs Either
It turns out John Travolta wasn't the only one to mistake Jade Jolie for Taylor Swift at the 2019 MTV VMAs. The drag queen revealed that even one of the pop star's besties, Gigi Hadid, confused them later in the night.
In case you missed it, the actor almost gave Swift's Moon Person to Jolie, who was dressed up like the singer on Monday night (August 26). The moment quickly went viral online, with some calling it the follow up to his 2014 mishap when he famously introduced Idina Menzel as "Adele Dazeem" at the Oscars.
But Jolie explained to New Now Next that everyone kept mistaking her. "Well, funny enough, when we were walking in the back [during the VMAs], where it’s mainly dancers and stuff, I got tired of saying, “No, I’m not her,” so I just started hugging people! 'So nice to meet you, too!' And at the after-party Gigi Hadid kept thinking I was Taylor — they’re really good friends. The drunker we got, I guess the more Taylor I became for everyone!" she said.
Can we blame anyone? The two look SO much alike.
The RuPaul's Drag Race alum also revealed how Swift really felt about Travolta confusing them on stage – and to no one's surprise, she was totally okay with it. "She was tickled and thought it was so funny. She joked and was like, 'You totally should have went for it [accepting the VMA from him]!'" Jolie said.
