Taylor Swift showed off her sense of humor and culinary skills with a handwritten note on a homemade jar of jam for tourmate Ed Sheeran. Buzzfeed posted a photo of the sweet treat with a message from Swift on the label reading: "Yo Ed I'm really happy 4 you and I'm gonna let u finish but this jam is the best JAM OF ALL TIME - T."

The message is a direct reference to Kanye West's infamous interruption of Swift's 2009 acceptance speech after she won Best Female Video for "You Belong With Me." West stormed the stage and took the mic from Swift, saying, "Yo, Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time." 

Swift was nominated for  Video of the Year and Best Female Video at this year's VMAs, which air Sunday on MTV. She alluded to the 2009 incident in a recent tweet to fans: "Two VMA nominations!! If you vote and get us one, I promise to keep a firmer grip on the mic this time."

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
