There's definitely no bad blood between the AMAs and this superstar, who won her first award, Best Country Female, in 2008, and earned the title the next five years in a row.

Their feud has grown worse over the years, and Taylor later went on to release her album Reputation, which changed her exterior entirely - and there were major digs at Kim and Kanye throughout the tracks.

She explained that she was not only grateful for her fans, but also for the friends and family who stuck by her even when many mentions of her in the press were negative.

"As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn", she told her 112 million Instagram followers.

Taylor Swift's political awakening was front and centre at the American Music Awards on Tuesday, where she also swept up big.

"And you can go to Vote.org like Taylor Swift told you to", he added. "Get on and vote".

While accepting her award for Artist of the Year at the show, Taylor pointed out that American Music Awards are voted for by the people...just like the upcoming midterm elections. Some dismissed the move as too little, too late - but the polarizing post still racked up almost 2 million "likes" and seemed to yield results, as voter registration nationwide and in Tennessee quickly saw a significant increase.

The gongs brought her to a career total of 23 AMAs, meaning she overtook Whitney Houston for the most wins by a female artist at the fan-voted show. "I love you guys".

Her words follow comments she made on social media earlier this week, in which she endorsed two Democrat candidates in her home state of Tennessee: Phil Bredesen for the Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives. The song is rumored to be about Kanye West or Calvin Harris, and amounts to Swift's insistence that she's not anxious about the consequences of her actions in this particular fantasy - especially since she thinks they're warranted.

In the song, she sang: 'If a man talks shit, then I owe him nothing / I don't regret it one bit, 'cause he had it coming'.
