MTV VMAs, Taylor Swift won the top prize and announced a new album

MTV VMAs, Taylor Swift won the top prize and announced a new album

Taylor Swift took home the top prize at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday before closing the show with a surprisingly big announcement: Her new album.

“I thought it would be a fun moment to tell you that my new album comes out Oct. 21,” said Swift after she won video of the year for her project “All Too Well: The Short Film” (10-minute version), which claimed best long-form video. “I will tell you more at midnight.”

Swift said on social media that her upcoming 10th studio album would be called “Midnights,” which she says will involve “stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life.”

Her upcoming release comes after she released “Folklore” and “Evermore.” Both projects came out five months apart two years ago. “Folklore” won album of the year at the 2021 Grammy Awards.

The pop star’s reveal came at the end of her acceptance speech, praising the other women in the category, including Doja Cat and Olivia Rodrigo.

“I know with every second of this moment that we wouldn’t be able to make this short film if it weren’t for you – the fans,” she said. “I wouldn’t be able to re-record my albums if it wasn’t for you. You emboldened me to do that.”

She spoke about creating her first short film, thanks to several, including actors Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien, who starred in the project.

“We put our entire hearts into this,” Swift said.

Rapper Jack Harlow made his mark throughout the entire show.

He kicked off his performance inside a mock aeroplane walking down the aisle while performing his hit song “First Class,” which was sampled by Fergie’s “Glamorous.”

The rapper joined Fergie onstage – who wore a sparkling silver dress with the red words “First Class” – while she sang her 2006 jam.

“Thank you to Fergie for coming out with me tonight and clearing this song,” said Harlow after “First Class” won the award for song of the summer later in the show.

“The beauty of this song is that people don’t realize it’s so hip-hop because of the sampling.

To bring Fergie into the mix in this way means the world to me. It’s truly full circle. ‘Glamorous’ was one of the most important songs of my childhood.”

During the show, Depp made a surprise appearance as the Moon Man nearly three months after the verdict in his defamation trial with his former wife, Amber Heard.

The 59-year-old actor floated from the ceiling while wearing the iconic astronaut outfit with his face digitally inserted into the custom helmet.

“And you know what? I needed the work,” Depp told the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey audience.

Lizzo had Taylor Swift dancing out of her seat while she performed her new single, “2 Be Loved (Am I Ready).” She won an award for video for good for “About Damn Time.”

Harlow’s name was called back onstage to collect the show’s first award for his guest appearance on Lil Nas X’s song “Industry Baby,” which won for best collaboration. Harlow and Lil Nas X are tied for leading nominees with seven apiece.

“This one is for the champions,” said Lil Nas X before Harlow thanked him for collaborating on the chart-topping single.

The song propelled their nominations, landing them in competition for artist of the year along with Drake, Bad Bunny, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles and Lizzo.

Harlow, in addition to performing and winning awards, joined LL Cool J and Nicki Minaj as the show’s hosts.

Minaj performed a medley of her career’s biggest hits from “Roman’s Revenge,” “Chun-Li,” “Moment 4 Life,” “Beez in the Trap,” “Anaconda”, and “Super Bass.”

After her set, the rapper accepted the show’s Video Vanguard award, which MTV has said she’s receiving for her artistry, barrier-breaking hip-hop and status as a global superstar.

The honour is named after Michael Jackson.

During her acceptance speech, Minaj paid tribute to other music icons such as Jackson, Whitney Houston, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

She spoke about the importance of mental health.

“I wish people took mental health seriously, even when you think they have the perfect lives,” said Minaj, who later won the best hip-hop for her song “Do We Have a Problem?” featuring Lil Baby.

Harry Styles won album of the year for “Harry’s House.” He could not attend the awards due to his show at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Bad Bunny performed his hit “Titi Me Pregunto” from Yankee Stadium after he won artist of the year.

“I have been saying it, and I always believed from the beginning that I could become great,” he said. “That I could become one of the biggest stars in the world without having to change my culture, language, jargon. I am Benito Antonio Martínez from Puerto Rico to the whole world, thank you!”

Eminem and Snoop Dogg brought the metaverse to the VMAs as the duo performed “From the D 2 The LBC,” featured on Eminem’s greatest hits album “Curtain Call 2.”

The Red Hot Chili Peppers took the stage as the recipients of the Global Icon award after being introduced by Cheech & Chong as their “favourite band of all time.”

The band – which consists of Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith and John Frusciante – performed several songs, including their hit “Can’t Stop” from the group’s 2002 album “By the Way” and their recent hit “Black Summer,” which won the best rock.

Flea spoke about his love for human beings, cockroaches, trees, and dirt. Smith, the band’s drummer, dedicated the award to Taylor Hawkins, the late Foo Fighters drummer who died early this year.

“I dedicate this to Taylor and his family,” he said. “I love them and I miss him every day.”

Madonna, the most awarded artist in MTV history with 20 wins, became the only artist to receive a nomination in each of the VMAs for five decades. She earned her 69th nomination for her 14th studio album, “Madame X.”
