Swift wins billboard woman of the year award for the second time in a row. During her acceptance speech Swift had this to say.
I turn 25 at midnight tonight, and I fully intend to celebrate like it’s 1989. I knew it was a bad joke when I wrote it, and I just did it anyway. Events like this where we have the most powerful people in music all gathered in one room, events like this give me hope that the right conversations will start to take place, and I invite you all to join in the conversation. The greatest moment of the year for me was when my fans went out and proved that if you provide them with a bold statement and pour your life into an album, they’ll buy it.
