Taylor Swift is winning big.
The star, 30, won her first best director award at the 2020 VMAs on Sunday for her music video for “The Man,” making her the first solo female artist to earn the honour.
“This is amazing,” Swift said while accepting the award. “This is the very first video that I’ve ever directed on my own. I’m just so grateful for this. I want to take an opportunity to say thank you to the team who believed in me as a first-time director and made this video with me.”
“I was told that this was an industry-voted award,” she continued. “So I want to say thank you to everyone in the industry who voted for this video. But I also really want to thank the fans because you are the only reason why the industry cares about anything that I do. Everything that you guys have done — Folklore this summer — I’m just so blown away and taken aback by your generosity to me. So, thank you for everything. I hope I get to see you soon.”
In “The Man” music video, Swift astonishingly transforms into a brunette, bearded man, whose bad behavior is on display throughout the clip — from urinating on a wall, to guzzling alcohol with a bevy of beautiful women, to manspreading on the subway. (People)
