VMAs 2013: Taylor Swift and Harry Styles photographed together at after party

Are things going well between Taylor Swift and Harry Styles? Despite what it looked like during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, the exes posed for a photo together not long afterwards at a VMA after party.

The photo leaves a very different impression than what viewers were treated to during the show. In addition to Swift's sharp-sounding words in her Best female Video acceptance speech, there was that moment when it looked like Taylor's response to her former One Direction boyfriend was "Shut the f*** up."

As for the fact that Swift is believed to have written "I Knew You Were Trouble" about Styles, that not likely to have created a big rift between the two. After all, writing about exes is just what Taylor Swift does. No one should hold that against her.

It doesn't look like Harry Styles does anyway.
