Taylor Lautner Defends Taylor Swift on 'SNL'

Taylor Lautner is defending his rumored girlfriend's honor -- and targeting Kanye West after the rapper "messed with the wrong Taylors."

Lautner, 17, showed off his impressive martial arts skills during his opening monologue on "Saturday Night Live" last night, where he discussed his relationship with Taylor Swift -- and recreated the night when West, 32, hijacked the microphone from Swift, 20, during her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.

"I've also become close with a singer named Taylor Swift. You know, I was actually at the VMAs when she won the award for best video and Kanye West interrupted her speech," Lautner says, adding, "What I really wanted to do last night was this."

Taylor then launched into a series of impressive martial arts moves before throwing a punch and beheading the Kanye mannequin.
