Taylor Swift makes an appearance at AMAs after Ticketmaster fiasco

Taylor Swift appeared at the 2022 American Music Awards on Sunday night — the first public appearance since her ongoing feud with Ticketmaster.

The 32-year-old donned a sparkly gold jumpsuit with wavy hair and her signature red lip. On stage to accept the Favorite Pop Album Award for “Red (Taylor’s Version),” the songstress thanked the various artists who jumped on her From the Vault tracks, as well as her Swifties for their support.

“This album is a re-recorded album and I cannot tell you how much my re-recorded albums mean to me, but I never expected or assumed that they would mean anything to you.”

She also thanked Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien, for starring in “a music video that I did that I was really happy about.” That video — or short film, rather — would be “All Too Well (10 Minute Version)” which was released last year and has 79 million views.

Swift also expressed gratitude toward video “director” Blake Lively, as well as “Top Gun: Maverick” star Miles Teller and his wife, Keleigh Sperry, who directed and starred in her music video for “I Bet You Think About Me,” respectively.

Though it was unknown if Swift was going to make it to Sunday’s awards ceremony, she won big before the televised broadcast even started, picking up three awards. She has six total nods.

The “Shake It Off” singer did not address the Ticketmaster situation. She did thank, however, her live touring band who played on “Red (Taylor’s Version)”

Fans were heartbroken last week when they waited hours on the ticket-selling website to buy tickets to Swift’s upcoming “Eras Tour.” The site claimed it saw a “historic demand” for tickets as they only gave 1.5 million fans presale codes to access Tuesday’s Verified Fan Presale but 14 million fans — and bots — flocked to the site come sale time.

The disaster resulted in Ticketmaster canceling public sale tickets. Now, the Department of Justice investigating the company.

Swift wrote in a statement that she was “pissed” about the way the presale was handled.

“It’s really difficult to trust an outside entity with these relationships and loyalties and excruciating for me to just watch mistakes happen with no recourse,” the “All Too Well” singer wrote.

“There are a multitude of reasons why people had a hard time getting tickets and I’m trying to figure out how this situation can be improved moving forward.”
