The 2022 VMAs (also known as the 2022 Video Music Awards) drew together the who’s who of the entertainment industry for its annual ceremony this year. In recent years, the VMAs have invited more and more K-Pop artists to attend and win awards! This year, BLACKPINK were the talk of the red carpet and it seems like everyone loves the group!
One star, in particular, showed a bit of extra love towards the group, and it was none other than Taylor Swift! Before the show, Taylor showed off her VMAs outfit in a TikTok with BLACKPINK’s “Pink Venom” as the BGM. She even makes a play on the song’s lyrics “I bring the pain like” in the video’s caption!
In addition to that, “Pink Venom” is apparently the first and only K-Pop song used on Taylor’s TikTok.
Team All Too Well bringing the emotional pain to the VMAs… 🧣
Taylor was able to live her best BLINK life during BLACKPINK’s performance of “Pink Venom” as well. Fans even took note that she sang along to the Korean lyrics as well, meaning the song has been in frequent rotation on Taylor’s playlist!

BLINKs are loving the indirect interactions between Taylor and the group, and say that it is proof of how worldwide and successful BLACKPINK truly are. Many fans are also hopeful for future collaboration between them as the group previously collaborated with Taylor’s bestie Selena Gomez for “Ice Cream”!
