    Anti-Hero took forever to grow on me but it did… still think it’s sits in between MID & GOOD like most of her catalog but at the same time I know that it’s not for me, it’s for mayonnaise ppl. 💯 😆

    Also agree with SZA – Shirt winning r&b but think Kill Bill should have won VOTY.

    Song of the Year should have went to Miley Cyrus – Flowers

    I’m convinced vmas are RIGGED in favor of TayLESS Swift. 😆 🤣 😂

  2. The Ora-cle September 13, 2023

    Taylor Swift Awards

  3. Nicki Minaj stan September 13, 2023

    Most VMA Win by any artist:
    Beyoncé – 25
    😭 Taylor Swift- 23😮😅- She’s about to surpass Beyoncé soon
    Madonna- 20
    Lady Gaga- 18
    Peter Gabriel- 13
    Eminem- 13

    • Cuff It September 13, 2023

      Oh no 😭
      Not Taylor surpassing Beyoncé VMA number of awards😢

      • Cruel Summer September 13, 2023

        Why not? Taylor is great and humble. I love her music and artistry plus she’s safe for mainstream America.

  4. Cuff It September 13, 2023

    No nomination or win for Beyoncé’s cuff it and alien superstar? Hmmmm

    • Ummmm September 13, 2023

      Beyoncé had a video we don’t know about?

  5. Justme September 13, 2023

    These wins aren’t even authentic VMA wins:
    Song of the year
    Album of the year
    Show of the year
    Song of the summer
    Like be serious. Just like the billboard dominance of old albums just with bonus tracks but call it “new albums” like be for real. We see what they are doing.
    At least Beyoncé has authentic wins to get to the top not these made up categories

  6. Aj September 13, 2023

    Super freaky girl was not VMA worthy, neither was Anti Hero.

  7. Diana Ross & The Supremes September 13, 2023

    Congrats Taylor, the Queen of VMA Awards 🥳🥳🥳
