Taylor Swift gets political at awards

Taylor Swift gets political at awards”

XXXTentacion's mother was at the American Music Awards to accept the award for "Favorite Soul/R&B Album" on her son's behalf.

The 28-year-old superstar waded into politics again Wednesday, encouraging crowds to "get out and vote" in the midterm elections during her "artist of the year" acceptance speech at the American Music Awards. "Get out and vote", Swift said when accepting her trophy. "If you believe that climate change is real and that we need to do something about it", he said onstage before presenting an award. Swift, who had 19 AMA wins prior to this year's show, walked away with a total of 22 awards, beating Whitney Houston's longstanding record of 21 wins. If you believe in equality for women, for people of colour, for the LGBTQ community.

I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee. Cardi B, who was tied with Drake for the most AMA nominations, won the first award of the night for favorite rap/hip-hop artist. "I really wanna thank my daughter. I'm even more excited about the next chapter".

Cardi B, who has had a breakout 12 months, was also named favorite hip-hop/rap artist, but she lost the best new artist category to Cuban-born Camila Cabello.

The singer made her first awards show performance at the AMAs in three years with "I Did Something Bad".

Gladys Knight performs while an image of the late Aretha Franklin is projected on a screen during the 2018 American Music Awards on October 9, 2018, in Los Angeles.

Lopez began with a poem by writer Jasmin Kuar, which read: "Scream so that one day a hundred years from now another sister will not have to dry her tears wondering where in history she lost her voice". Additionally, several of gospel and R&B's heaviest hitters will assemble for what's sure to be a touching Aretha Franklin tribute.
