It was a night to remember for drag queen Jade Jolie who was mistaken for a pop music superstar during the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards on Monday night. Jade happily laughed it off when John Travolta seemingly mistook the RuPaul's Drag Race veteran for pop singer Taylor Swift

John alongside Queen Latifah presented Taylor, 29, with the night's biggest award for Video of the Year. But John tried to hand the award to blond haired Jade, who slightly resembles the flaxen-haired singer.

John, 65, mistook Jade, 32, for Taylor when the "Look What You Made Me Do" songstress brought the full cast of her "You Need To Calm Down" music video onstage to accept the award collectively.


Afterwards, Jade was flattered. He tells, "It seemed to happen in slow motion. Well Taylor is obviously my goddess she's my Cersei Lannister. It was like slow motion when he was moving to me." Jade went on to praise Taylor's support and her request that everyone in her video get an award along with her.

    John "just come on out the closet" Travolta does that "oh, I thought you were somebody else routine" at every award show, which tells me he's doing it on purpose. Dude take several seats.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Didn't watch ... got nothing for this ... I did see Missy performance on youtube .... got nothing else

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    Even taylor says that jade looks so much like her they had to do her makeup a lil differently so folks wouldnt get confused. Plus she the one up there with a gang of chicks to receive 1 award. She’ll be fine.

  • Dr. P

    The drag kwane looks better than weasel face Taylor, and John's bald head is quite sexy, glad he stopped wearing those wigs...

  • Bushbabe

    It is not a secret that John loves and prefers men.

  • Roderick2011

    And Jade mistook John for a heterosexual man.

  • DroneRivers

    He stays messing up at award shows lol. I think John be gettin hiiiiiigh.

  • iWasteTime

    He's a treasure!

  • Facts and Receipts

    When Queen rode that motorcycle on to the stage. And got off. And got helped into her coat by it looked like Misa. Best part of the night aside from Missy.

  • DroneRivers

    Only things worth watching the whole show to me. And I was in here rapping along word for word like it was the 90's! Lol

  • Starburst

    Makeup, surgeries got everybody confused

  • Slim Goodie

    Poor chile can't win for losing.

  • Tinytoon

    What was John T. doing there? Asking for a friend.....

  • PhillyFacts

    Taylor and Jade are twins I understand the mistake...

    Is this an open post??? We need a Weak Mill post... Thanks in advance!

  • Ni Ni

    I bet he got her number after the show. I wanted to see Missy, but fell asleep shortly after the nightly news. I done officially got old, chile ?.

    Anywhoo disqus is still messing up. I'm gonna have to watch from the sidelines today!?

  • PhillyFacts


  • iWasteTime

    It is on the YouTube.
    I've watched twice

  • Vonn

    ?? John Travolta isn't checking for women, it's understandable that he made that mistake. Maybe that was an icebreaker so he could laugh about it with the drag queen backstage...and get the number.

  • Vonn

    Why did I just say the same thing? John got the number backstage. Lol

  • Rei Rei

    He's so lame. He already messed up when he butchered Idina's name when she won. Now this. Why he is even invited back for these things is beyond me.

  • currvalicious

    They're still doing this lame asz award show??

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Chile... Yes?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Scouting new booty

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    This show was weird. The host was weird... The abundance of a$$ & twerking was weird. Thank God for the Queen and Missy

  • Vonn


  • the guest

    What took him so long to shave his head?

    Very handsome and long overdue.

    He makes these kind of mistakes a lot with people’s names and identity. Could be memory loss but I think he’s just ensconced in superstardom and disconnected with having to regard other humans on a human level other than those that work for him.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Give John a break..he is up in age and probably haven't seen her in person for some time. And not a fan of her boyfriend dumping music.

  • Coy little wink

    You know how some people need glasses but refuse to wear them.

    I'm just glad he has finally come to terms with his hair loss and gone bald...

  • Christopher Gibson

    Right....the channel doesn't even show music videos anymore....haven't done so for years...

  • Dee

    John looks horrible. Nothing like his former younger self and bald ?

  • Facts and Receipts

    In its defense VMAs been strange since Madonna came out in a wedding dress and hunched the floor at the very first awards. In other words, it's always been strange af to me

  • WhoKnew

    Sandra "flip it and reverse it Marrrrcus supa dupa" Rose how bout a new post, dahlink?

  • WhoKnew

    "not a fan of her boyfriend dumping music"..

    Who Taylor?

  • WhoKnew

    Not a fan of Swift or Travolta - although I did like his portrayal as Chili Palmer in Get Shorty. I just don't like how he allowed his son to die because of his Scientology beliefs.

    Sides that. Taylor and John both need to come on out the closet already. Taylor mows the coochie lawns of womenz and John is the sha boing boing butt invader of menz.

  • KarmaBackAround

    It was hellllla funny LIVE omg lol the awards were great i loved missie performance ..VA STAND UPPPP!

  • WhoKnew

    OT: Meek Mills has pled guilty today in court to misdemeanor possession of a firearm without a license and the remaining 6 charges for which he was originally convicted were all dropped. Apparently he accepted a plea to avoid going to trial and to end this once and for all. I am definitely not a fan or stan but hopefully he will stay out of trouble.

  • Coy little wink

    Did you watch his Netflix show? My boo said it was good but I'm not moved ?

  • Assigned Female @ Birth

    I think she's saying a few of Taylor's songs are about her ex boyfriends.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    They look alike. And give his alleged proclivities. Well...

  • Jai

    I just watched performances and Missy stuff on YouTube. I'm too old to spend 3 hours watching award shows especially when start near my bedtime. Normani performance was cute but lowkey wish she did twerk and crawl on floor in booty shorts. Missy performance was good I'm glad she brought the girl from work it video but disappointed no Aaliyah reference, song used or mention especially since anniversary of her passing was just a few days ago. No Ciara or Tweet or Lil Kim performance together. Like they are a big part of her legacy and shes a big part of theirs I just wish atleast one would've came performed. I'm glad Ciara, Kim and Timberland spoke in her tribute though.

  • Coffee1st
  • MsSapphire9800

    Yes...every dude she has been with and they broke up...she made a song about it.

  • Karen Brady

    Tee hee at headline

  • Stan4NoOne

    She honored her in her speech. What collabo do they have that would make sense for her to honor it while performing her greatest hits?

  • MsSapphire9800

    This is why I hate social media...the new MeToo and social media court. This suppose to have happen over 45+ years ago...because the son is 58 now and Paul Moomney is 78. And the person who is telling it is probably 88 or 90 and putting out old bs.

  • MrsSpice1

    Ummm sorry but ciara was waaay after and as i was growing up listening to Missy she only needed herself ...i can see Timberland but everybody else NO!!! Missy deserved to have the spotlight exactly on her by herself!! It was her award she earned it so nobody else needed to share her shine!!

  • Jai

    Lil Kim- Ladies Night(HUGE HIT) Featured in Films and TV as well/ Mulan Rouge

    Ciara- 1,2 Step/Loose Control

    Tweet- Entire Discography before split.

    The speech was great but Aaliayh should've been mentioned in Video tribute because that's a huge part of her Career songs she produce and wrote for Aaliyah helped make her and Timbaland well rounded.

  • Jai

    Missy's most impactful records are Get Your Freak On, Work it, Loose Control. Yes she had hits before but there is reason she ended on Loose Control and crowd reaction during those 3 says it all. She doesnt need any collaboration bit it would've been nice if did considering her career is heavily involved in making other artists successful as well. Shes written and produced for so many people given away so many hits. Would've been nice to see some of them honor her and collab again on stage.

  • Pamela

    Travolta looks much better without the struggling hair. I like him.

  • Pamela

    John is also a singer and a dancer.

  • Bree

    John Travolta use tok be that dude back in the day. Where has he been!? I use to love him in the Look Who's Talking movies! I watched part 1 and 2 religiously because of him. Glad he is doing well.

  • Sushi

    I must agree John looks a lot better bald......

  • Yup, I said it

    Travolta was like..."dude look like a lady."

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • Renee26

    she's my Cersei Lannister

    Ummmmm bish that's NOT a compliment!! Throws tomato at Cersei's even whore azz

  • CookieMobster

    Was he trying to get some "summer loving" OR "grease lightening"???

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    The awards seemed off a lil was like a black who's who show with a mayonnaise audience...every time the camera panned to the audience during performance all you see is off beat dancing and a Taylor Swift (Queen of Mayo) and her cronies...They were giving out tickets to the awards show on the 1otia website (or something like that I may have butchered the name)...The people dressed crazy were psuedo celebs but the regular audience was like a sheet of fresh snow on a winter morning...

  • Logan Roberts

    Travolta is a messy queen. I'm glad he finally gave up the lacefronts.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    This mess right here almost made me late for work this a.m.?????

    John saw what He wanted to see, LMAO!

  • The Chosen 1.

    i can shake your hand on that. he was probably pondering on how to get close to that drag queen.

  • Shenanigans1

    He was never in it.

  • bb1812

    Remember when John introduced Idina Menzel as Adele Dazeem at the 2015 Oscars? I laughed sooo hard--musta rewatched that 20x that night alone ???

  • PhillyFacts

    Ditto! Me either great minds think alike lol

  • Just Me

    John want him some of that! ??Can make this stuff up! lol!

  • MsSapphire9800

    But the son has not confirm the story....."Kahn claimed that Pryor shared this wish with him, though Kahn believed that Richard was high at the time so he dismissed it." This guy it writing a book...Rashon Kahn, is the writer of an upcoming book called Everything Wasn't Funny, so you waited 45+ years until you decided to write a book. I question the motive behind the accusation.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Her ass is broke too...they are both full of shyt...if you knew a man s3xually hurted a child back when it happen but did nothing you are more guilty than the sick azz person who did it. (Kahn says that the reason the act was never carried out is because Richard "caught on fire" which replaced his priorities. He says, if not for that, Mooney would not currently be alive.) his sexual assualt was not a priority in 1980...but is a priority in 2019.

  • MsSapphire9800

    I am a mother of 5...with 3 daughters and 2 sons...if a fool was to touch any of my children everyone will be reading and seeing me on every news outlet around the world.
