Well, Swift's stylist might not be so angry when she hears who advised the teen to ditch the sky-high heels -- It was one of her musical heroes.
"I was limping up the stairs, and I walked past Faith Hill and I was like, 'This hurts so bad.' And she was like, 'Take 'em off!' And so at that point, I just took off my shoes and did not put them on for the rest of the night," Swift tells Dial-Global. "And I actually accepted an award barefoot and presented an award barefoot and it's like, you know, Faith Hill told me to, [laughs] so I did it!"
Going barefoot certainly worked out for Swift as she won Female Video of the Year and the night's biggest honor, Video of the Year, for 'Our Song.'
