Swift also thanked “all the female artist that paved the way for us” as well as her fans fot their support.
“I haven’t been to an awards show in a few years and it is so nice to be here tonight,” she said. “And it’s so nice to receive female artist. I’m on an all-female artist stadium tour right now, so I have to start out by saying ‘Thank you’ to my tourmates Charli XCX and Camila Cabello.”
Later in the night, she gave an emotional speech when accepting the trophy for top selling album.
“You guys, when I started writing songs when I was 12, I started writing songs because it made me feel more understood,” she said. “When I was making Reputation, this album, for a while there I was feeling really misunderstood by a lot of people. So I want to say to the fans, thank you for continuing to show up. We just started our tour last week and the ways that you’ve cared about me and the ways that you’ve treated me — thank you for making me feel understood again.”
The star received a total of five nominations, including the top artist category for which she is up against Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran.
