Taylor Swift Promises ‘New Music’ In Her iHeart Radio Music Awards Speech!
Get ready, Taylor Swift fans!
On Thursday, at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, the Shake It Off singer won the trophy for “Tour of the Year” for her Reputation stadium tour!
The spectacle ran through the second half of 2018, and included dates in North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.
During her acceptance speech, the 29-year-old gave a special shoutout to her haters who thought her tour would be a “flop”! She exclaimed:
“So, I think one of the most wonderful things about the way that this whole tour turned out is that for like the entire six months leading up to the first show of this tour, every headline that I read about the tour was, ‘This is going to be a massive failure. This is going to be a flop tour’… And it really did wonders for my self-esteem. It was really great to hear people saying that I was going to be playing to nearly empty stadiums.'”
However, her latest live extravaganza set a new record for the highest-grossing U.S. tour in history!
Joe Alwyn‘s girlfriend continued:
“I’ve learned a lot… One of the things I’ve learned is that life is really unpredictable. People can make forecasts and they can make predictions… predictions and forecasts may not come true if there is an unforeseeable factor involved, and that unforeseeable factor in this case was my fans. I honestly owe everything in my life to you. … You guys are the reason why this tour — the only reason why this tour — wasn’t a massive failure, and why it ended up being the highest-selling tour in U.S. history.”
Oh, and Miz Swift promised new tunes in the near future!
“I just wanted to let you know that when there is new music, you will be the first to know.”
