Tay used her acceptance speech as a platform to thank fans and further her anti-Spotify cause.
Is there any musical achievement Taylor Swift hasn’t snagged over the past two years? No. No is the answer you were looking for there. It’s getting to the point where the music industry is starting to invent new distinctions to give to Swifty – like the inaugural Dick Clark award, which Taylor accepted at last night’s American Music Awards ceremony.
Taylor Swift at the AMA - can we talk about that dress for a second?
Swift was presented with the award by Diana Ross, before the two exchanged tales of their experiences as women in the industry.
Diana Ross - Photographs of a wide variety of stars from the music industry as they attended the American Music Awards 2014 in which were held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California, United States - Monday 24th November 2014
Everybody came out in their Sunday best - literally - for the American Music Awards.
We have to talk about something. Specifically, about the American Music Awards. More specifically, about One Direction at the American Music Awards. Now, I don’t want to alarm anyone, but have you seen those young British gentlemen and their outfits? The boyband is definitely turning into a manband these days and their black-on-black ensembles were strategically chosen to reflect the change.
Gone are the wind-swept, vaguely hippie-ish days.
They went for a hipster-meets-business-chic kind of look (see the pictures over on CNN) and we love it – even if it has the potential to this decade’s sagging white pants. Harry’s hat and Liam’s l cheetah print shirt were particularly nice touches.
With Motown being revived in the form of a Broadway show, we explore the vibrant music scene of Detroit.

Carly Rae Jepsen's first pitch was, well, terrible.
Carly Rae Jepsen turned up at the Tropicana Field on Sunday night (July 14, 2013) to throw the first pitch of the Ray's home game - and it was awful. A video that's on the verge on going viral shows the whole damn thing, with the 'Call Me Maybe' pop singer seemingly forgetting to let go of the ball at the appropriate time, launching it into the turf and watching as it squirted away to the left.
Met a lot of lovelies at this game today! Go Rays! :D by @carlyraejepsen
Embarrassed, Jepsen, 27, covered her face, laughed and threw her hands up in the end. Still in high spirits, she even posted a series of images on Instagram, saying, "A before and after. Me taking the mound. Me knocking the camera out of the photographers hands with the baseball. And me getting a sympathy hug from the catcher. Omg."

The Super Bowl half-time entertainment shows have slowly evolved into one of the biggest deals in the entertainment industry. Get it right, get richer (you’ll already be rich, if you’re performing at the Super Bowl, these days). Get it wrong? Suffer at least 12 months of ridicule and about a fortnight of humiliation every year subsequently, as people like us dig up lists like this to remind everyone of your shame.
A good Super Bowl Halftime Show can be life-affirming. Patriotism in its finest form; live music at its glitziest and its most extravagant. Here are five of the best:

Despite offending the nation with the discovery of an avidly anti-American song, 'Dear America', which speaks about killing Americans, families and children, Psy is still on the good side of the States having issued what seems like a heartfelt apology, and performing at the Christmas in Washington charity concert, reports MTV.
The apology read: "The song I was featured in - from eight years ago - was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two innocent Korean civilians that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time," he said "While I'm grateful for the freedom to express one's self I've learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I'm deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused anyone by those words."
It was obviously deemed enough in President Obama's eyes who shook Psy's hand at the event hosted by Conan O'Brien, and didn't even refer to the Psy controversy in his speech. "Tonight is about Conan and Diana Ross and Santa and all the other talented folks on the stage," Obama said. "But it's also about the Americans who are spending this holiday in a hospital bed, or a shelter, or protecting our freedom on a battlefield far from home ... let's keep them in our prayers."
