Last night, Sunday November 23, at the American Music Awards, Taylor Swift received the inaugural “Dick Clark Award for Excellence.” During her acceptance speech Taylor took a shot at “Spotify” the music streaming service that she pulled her music from earlier this year. Here’s what she had to say during her speech:
What you did by going out and investing in music and albums is saying you believe in the same thing I believe in. That music is valuable and should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated.
Taylor opened the AMAs with a theatrical performance of “Blank Space” from her new album “1989.” She later sat in the audience to watch the other performances of the night. She sat with Selena Gomez, Lorde and Karlie Kloss.
