Austin Swift, Taylor Swift’s Brother, At The VMAs

Austin Swift was at a VMA after party with his sister and her famous pals when he pointed out that it wasn’t long ago that they were farm kids in an exchange that singer Lorde overheard.

“At the after party Austin leaned down from the banquette heaving with models in VIP to whisper in Taylor’s ear, ‘We grew up on a FARM!!’ Lorde tweeted

Swift retweeted Lorde and then sent her a childhood snap of herself and her brother Austin riding a tractor on their father’s lap.

Swift had a big night at the 2015 MTV VMAs. Not only did she win Video of the Year for “Bad Blood,” but “Blank Space” won for Best Female Video and Best Pop Video.

Swift also joined Nicki Minaj onstage during the rapper’s opening performance.
