On receiving the award Swift said:
"I've learned a lot -- life is really unpredictable. People can make forecasts and predictions, but they may not come true if there's an unforeseeable factor involved. And in this case, that factor was my fans. I honestly owe everything in my life to you."
In addition, Swift also won the fan-voted award for Best Music Video for her song "Delicate" and teased new projects, saying "when there is new music, you will be the first to know."
