Taylor Swift has won the first of five possible American Music Awards on Sunday, as she surpassed Michael Jackson's collection of 24 with two wins for artist of the year and favorite pop/rock album for "Lover."
Over the years, the singer has collected up 23 AMAs. She now holds the record for wins with 25.
In her acceptance speech, she thanked her record label for allowing her to freely express herself as an artist. "This album really felt like a new beginning, and I also really love my record label, Universal and Republic."
"Monte Lipman, Lucian Grainge, thank you for being so generous to me and allowing me to make whatever music I want to make," Swift said while thanking her fans. "As a songwriter, it's so thrilling to me that I get to keep doing that."
Swift also earned the artist of the decade award. She also performed a medley of her hit songs, a performance put in trouble by Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun, the owners of her master recordings about which she mentioned in her Nov. 15 post on social media.
