The biggest artists in the world gathered on Monday, August 29 (Philippine time) at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey for the 2022 MTV Music Video Awards.
Taylor Swift took home the Video of the Year award, the highest honor at the awards ceremony, for "All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor's Version)."
"I am so honored to have been recognized alongside such amazing artists and the directors in this category and I just want to say that I am so heartened by the fact that for the first time in VMA history, four of the directors nominated in the Video of the Year category are women," she said in her acceptance speech for Video of the Year.
"You guys, I’m just so proud of what we made and I know with 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. I wouldn’t be able to re-record my albums if it weren’t for you, you emboldened me to do that," she added.
In the same speech, Taylor also announced that she will be releasing a brand new album this coming October.
"I had sort of made up my mind that if you are 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," she revealed.
The singer then announced on social media that she will be releasing her new album Midnights this October.
Aside from Video of the Year, Taylor also bagged the Best Longform Video award and the Best Direction award for the same song.
