Last night Taylor Swift broke the record for most American Music Award wins, where she was also presented with the Artist of the Decade Award by music legend Carole King. But at least one person watching was confused by the honor.
Talk show host Wendy Williams DID NOT get how Swift could have more awards than a few music legends…
“Taylor Swift made history, which is like unbelievable to me. And so, good for her. She won 6 awards, now she has a total of 29 awards.
That sounds unbelievable, but what sounds unforgivable, she’s got more awards than Michael Jackson!”
MJ won 24 AMAs in his lifetime. Williams was shocked Taylor even has more than Prince and Madonna, too.
“And Artist of the Decade?! Is she who’s been firing you up for the last 10 years?!
But you know what? I think that taste has cheapened through the years in a lot of things. The quality of clothes we buy, they get tattered and torn real quick. The quality of food we buy, we’re being poisoned by a lot of crap. Just life in general I think has cheapened and I don’t mean this in a bad way to Taylor, but it’s unbelievable …
I appreciate her, but Artist of the Decade?”
As Swift picked up the award last night she first thanked Carole King for inspiring her, before giving love to her fans.
“All any of the artists in this room want is to create something that will last.
And all that matters to me is the memories that I have had with you, the fans, over the years, because we’ve had fun, incredible exhilarating times together. Thank you for being the reason I am on this stage.”
But do you agree with Williams? If so, who’s your pick for Artist of the Decade?
