2023 VMA Awards Winners

Taylor won nine VMA’s, the most in a single night since Peter Gabriel in 1987, and now is only behind Beyonce for the most. Let’s assume she won them for “The Eras Tour” because her last album wasn’t all that. The true winner was Morgan Wallen and he wasn’t even nominated. Strange, are they still pissed about him dropping the n- word…

How will Taylor follow 2023?
