John Travolta Mistakes Drag Queen For Taylor Swift At VMA Awards

At last nights MTV Video Music Awards, Taylor Swift took home the award for "Video of the Year," for her song "You Need To Calm Down," off her seventh studio album Lover.

John Travolta presented Swift the award, or, at least he thought he was.  As Swift was still making her way to the stage, Travolta tried to hand the trophy to someone else...drag queen Jade Jolie.  

Jolie appeared in the video, and to Travolta's defense, was dressed very similarly to Swift.  She portrayed Swift's drag doppelganger in the video, and was on hand with numerous other video co-stars to join Swift onstage as she accepted the award.

Jolie appeared to take it all in stride, but they could not handle Travolta's innocent mistake, with some harkening back to Travolta's butchered pronunciation of Idina Menzel's name at the 2014 Academy Awards.
