Democrat-Backing Taylor Swift Stays Political At American Music Awards

It's official: After taking home three awards at the 2018 AMAs, Taylor Swift has more AMAs than any other female artist - and she used the opportunity to urge people to vote during the midterm elections!

Thomas Rhett attends the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on October 9, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. "Get out and vote", Swift said when accepting her trophy.

"And you can go to Vote.org like Taylor Swift told you to".

Presenters included Tyra Banks, Chloe x Halle, Macaulay Culkin, Sara Gilbert, Heidi Klum, Lenny Kravitz, John Stamos, Amandla Stenberg, The Chainsmokers and Rami Malek. 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. So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count.

I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee. She's up for additional three awards at the show, including Pop/Rock Female Artist and Artist of the Year. However, what really put cardi on top was her completely out of control performance of "I Like It'".

His mother, Cleopatra Bernard, said she was honored to accept the award on behalf of her son.

Another week, another music awards show.

Swift's touring guest Camila Cabello also won four awards, while Kane Brown swept the country categories, winning favourite male, favourite album and favourite song.

It was her first awards show performance since the July birth of her daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, with husband Offset.

At past awards ceremonies, Swift's speech might have come off as a neutral plea for Americans to perform their civic duty by voting.

Recently, Swift took to Instagram with a lengthy message about her political views.
