Swift's rep, Tree Paine, tells PerezHilton.com:
Wow. Wow. Wow.
Kanye is straight-up INSANE!!!!!
We heart the iHeartRadio Music Awards!
Unlike traditional ceremonies that honor music's best artists for their work, this show is all about "fan-fueled" entertainment.
Sure, the show has standard categories like Song of the Year and Artist of the Year, but fans can also vote for select categories socially — like Best Fan Army and Most Meme-able Moment! How fun!
If that doesn't sell you, the first scheduled performers for the third annual award show were announced on Tuesday, and they are none other Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor — who are both nominated, along with Taylor Swift, Adele, Sam Smith, and The Weeknd, to name a few!

The acting nominees for this year's Oscars may be exclusively Caucasian, but at least the list of presenters has some variety!
After igniting an industry-wide discussion on Hollywood's lack of diversity, the Academy announced the first batch of presenters set to hand out trophies at the prestigious awards show on Thursday!
And unlike the "lily white" nominees, the group of stars scheduled to appear throughout the night are of different races, genders, and even ages!
Producers of the show commented on their own inclusive announcement in a statement, saying:
The Academy wasn't the only institution to release its contenders for this year's awards — the nominees for the 2016 BRIT Awards were also revealed on Thursday!
Topping the list with four nominations is (who else?) Adele, who is up for Album of the Year, British Female Solo Artist, British Single, and British Video of the Year!
For the Female Solo Artist category, the crooner will be going up against the late Amy Winehouse, who was nominated for the soundtrack to her Oscar-nominated documentary Amy!
Tied with the 25 songstress are breakthrough musicians James Bay and Years & Years, who scored four nods each!
Check out the full list of nominees (below) and watch The Brits on February 24!
It's an honor just to be nominated!
Shortly after Thursday morning's announcement gave an interesting mix of first time actors and Academy veterans, stars released statements expressing their honor and gratitude!
A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Jason Leigh were quick to thank the directors of their respective films, while Brie Larson admitted she was so overcome with joy after getting nominated she was "shaking!"
See what a few of the nominees had to say about being considered for the highest honor in film (below):
In a brewing feud we're sure will split music fans, Sam Smith is throwing some major shade at Radiohead.
Why?? Well, it all started with Bond. James Bond.
Apparently Radiohead were one of the artists asked to submit a potential theme for the latest Bond film Spectre.
Though Writing's On The Wall was chosen for the film, the rock band decided to release their unused version, simply titled Spectre, online on Christmas Day for those that wanted to hear it.
Sam wasn't among them.
In the press room after his Golden Globes win for Best Original Song In A Motion Picture, the Stay With Me singer was asked about it and first implied he didn't know who frontman Thom Yorke was, then said of the alternate song:
