Taylor Swift Just Made Music History At The 2019 AMAs
Taylor Swift is officially the most-awarded artist in AMA history.
Raking an impressive five nominations for the 2019 American Music Awards, Taylor Swift had the last laugh against her haters when she made history upon winning Favourite Pop/Rock album for 'Lover', officially making her the most awarded artist of all time at the AMAs.
Having won a whopping 25 awards over the years, Tay-Tay has now surpassed the previous record which was held by Michael Jackson.
Looking shocked at the announcement -- and later, confused as to which side of the stage she should head to accept the award -- Taylor then thanked her fans for their unwavering support.
"This is amazing, that was a tough category -- wow," she told the crowd, adding, "I want to thank you to the fans".
Fans have since responded to the win in their usual swift fashion by going into meltdown over Twitter.
"So grateful for a decade with the #AMAs artist of the decade," one Twitter user wrote. "You inspire me every day & make me feel empowered AF. Thank you for adding sparkle & happiness to my life, all while teaching me power & strength. On your side forever T".
She went on the thanks all those who helped bring her album 'Lover' together, including Jack Antanoff, St Vincent, Brendan Urie, and the Dixie Chicks.
"I didn't think I would win this one. This album really felt like a new beginning," before shouting out her current music label, Republic, thanking them for "make the music [she] wanted to" -- seemingly a thinly-veiled jab at her former record label Big Machine following her public beef with Scooter Braun over the rights to her music catalogue.
"I love you guys, thank you to the fans -- you're everything!" she concluded.
On top of performing at the award show, Tay is also set to receive an award as Artist of the Decade, so she's also got that going for her, which is nice.
The 29-year-old was also nominated for artist of the year, favourite music video (for "You Need To Calm Down"), favourite female artist - pop/rock, favorite album - pop/rock (Lover) and favorite artist - adult contemporary.
