Taylor Swift dominated the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night 28/08/22 with three wins.
The singer took home three trophies from the ceremony including Video of the Year for ‘All Too Well’ making her the first artist to win the prize three times and the first to win for a video they directed themselves.
She also took home accolades for Best Longform Video and Best Direction for short film category.
Picking up the Best Direction prize, she told the audience, “I’m so honored to have been recognized alongside such amazing artists and directors in this category, and I just want to say I am so heartened by the fact that, for the first time in VMA history, four of the directors nominated in this video of the year category are women.
Taylor added: “You guys, I’m just so proud of what we made, and I know that every second of this moment that we wouldn’t have been able to make this short film if it weren’t for you, the fans. Because I wouldn’t be able to rerecord my album if it weren’t for you. You emboldened me to do that.”
Taylor also used her platform on the night to announce plans to release a new album called ‘Midnights’ in October.
She said of the new project: “I had sort of made up my mind that if you were going to be this generous and give us this, I thought it might be a fun moment to tell you that my brand-new album comes out October 21st. And I will tell you more at midnight.”
