Taylor Swift won Video of the Year at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards for “Bad Blood” on Sunday night.
Swift hit the stage with her girl squad, including Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, Hailee Steinfeld, Mariska Hargitay, Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez, Serayah, Lily Aldridge and Karlie Kloss. The singer thanked Kendrick Lamar, who was featured in the video but wasn’t present at the VMAs to accept the award with her. Surprisingly, Swift didn’t announce a run for presidency though, unlike her buddy Kanye West.
Swift and Lamar’s “Bad Blood” beat out Beyoncé’s “7/11,” Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” and Lamar’s “Alright.” Let’s hope there’s no bad blood between any of them — because band-aids don’t fix bullet holes, guys.
“Bad Blood,” aka the most female celebrity-packed video ever, was nominated in six other categories, including Best Collaboration. Swift’s video for “Blank Space” won Best Pop Video and Best Female Video.
Last year’s Video of the Year award went to this year’s host, Miley Cyrus, for “Wrecking Ball.” The singer famously used her acceptance speech to share the spotlight with a young man and advocate for homeless youth.
