John Travolta should have prepared a little better for the MTV Video Music Awards. The actor was allowed to award the prize for video clip of the year to Taylor Swift on Monday evening, but initially gave the coveted moon man by accident to RuPaul’s Drag Race star Jade Jolie.
Jade looked surprised and gave John a little hug to “thank” for the prize. Shortly thereafter, Taylor, one of the big winners of the evening, was presented with the award on stage. That the actor was mistaken is not very remarkable. The American drag queen more often takes on the role of the famous singer.
It is not the first time that John makes a blunder while awarding a prize. In 2014, he was given an Oscar to actress Idina Menzel, but he accidentally called her Adele Dazeem. The actor was then very embarrassed and sent the actress a large bouquet of flowers as a saving gift.
