Taylor Swift’s isolated VMA vocals are painful

Taylor Swift performed “Shake It Off” live at the VMAs on Sunday. And while she didn’t fall off the stage, it was still painfully bad. If you couldn’t tell from watching the unedited performance, here’s a version with the vocals isolated. Ouch.

But hey, at least she’s getting up on stage and singing and willing to make a fool of herself, right? That’s probably more than you’ll ever accomplish in your entire life.
