We’re very thankful for having her, Taylor Nation.
The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards took place tonight, Sunday April 3rd at the Forum in Los Angeles, California. The Blonde With The Sparkly 1989 Microphone had a great time hanging around with Selena Gomez, Zendaya and Calvin Harris. She also managed to pick five awards:
- Album of the Year for 1989
- Female Artist of the Year
- Best Tour of the Year for The 1989 World Tour
- Best Meme-able Moment for “Blank Space”
- Most Thumbed Up Artist of the Year.
She received Female Artist of the Year from Brad Paisley, Best Tour from Justin Timberlake who made an amazing speech and finally Album of the Year from Selena Gomez. She also took a chance to thank “my boyfriend, Adam” for having someone to come home to after the spotlight was off. That’s a reference to Calvin Harris real name, in case you’re not aware.
Her most significant moment, at least in my opinion, was her last award of the night. Here’s her acceptance speech for Album of the Year:
Guys! I want to thank everyone at iHeart for putting on this amazing evening that we all had so much fun at. I want to thank John Ivy, John Coleman, I want to thank all the radio stations who played the songs off 1989. I never dreamed of having this many number ones. Thank for you for liking and listening to my songs on the radio. That’s really nice.
This is probably my last award show for awhile so I just want to say I know my mom, dad and brother are watching. My most vivid memory of growing up is my mom and dad telling me that I was different and unique and special and that I could do whatever I wanted with my life. So parents, tell your kids everyday that they’re different, they’re special, they’re unique. They can do whatever they want with their lives.
Thank you for having me. Good night.
It sounds a little bit like a good bye, doesn’t it. Well, the Sparkly Dressed is taking a bit of a break. How long or short is really up to her. But from one lowly member of the fandom to their superstar, I’d like to say: Thank you for having us, T. See you soon.
