There is no doubt that Taylor Swift is one of the biggest names in the music industry.
The ‘You Need to Calm Down’ hitmaker made history by becoming the first female solo artist to receive the Video Music Award for Best Direction for her music video ‘The Man,’ which she directed herself.
“Guys, this is amazing. This is the first video I’ve ever directed on my own and I just – I’m so grateful for this,” Taylor said in her speech.
“I want to take an opportunity to say thank you for the team who believed in me as a first-time director and made this video with me,” the 10-time Grammy winner continued.
“My DP, my AD, my editor, Ethan, Joe, Bill and his team for turning me into a guy, which was very thrilling. I also want to thank two women that I’d worked with convinced me that I was up to the challenge of directing on my own and those women were my producers on this video, Rebecca Skinner and Jil Hardin. Thank you for that.”
The songstress added: “I was told this was an industry voted award so I want to say thank you to everyone in the industry who voted for this video. I also really want to thank the fans because you are the only reason the industry cares about anything that I do and everything that you have done this summer.
“I’m so blown away and taken aback by your generosity to me. Thank you for everything. I hope I get to see you soon.”
Taylor managed to beat out The Weeknd, Harry Styles, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish and Doja Cat.
The 30-year-old received six nomination at this year’s awards show, including Video for Good and Video of the Year, both for her hit song The Man.
Speaking about her five-hour transformation, Taylor said on YouTube: “It’s been a joy. I had no idea what they do to your body to make you look different.
“I’ve never thought about how men walk. It’s never something that’s interested me before but, you know, they walk differently than we do.”
