The old Taylor can't come to the phone right now... she's on stage accepting half a dozen awards.
Taylor Swift broke the record for most AMA wins last night, winning all six she was nominated for at the fan-voted ceremony, including the top prize: artist of the year. Did we mention the previous record was also held by her?
Her winning output was made up in part from the re-recordings of her early albums (after a dispute with her old record label), with Red Taylor's Version scooping two best album wins. To add to this nostalgia, as you may have noticed, Taylor is serving up a blast from the past returning to her signature hairstyle from her early albums and it's giving peak Fearless circa 2008.
Taylor's sweeping bangs and golden curls were instantly recognisable as a reference to teen Taylor. Which ties in beautifully to the theme of her recently announced tour; "Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour, a journey through the musical eras of my career (past & present!)"
Speaking of the album's success, Taylor said; “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.”
And this look feels like a further nod to fans' love of the star's early years. How are these pics 12 years apart?
Her 2022 take was a little more undone than her noughties iteration, with her golden curls brushed through for a softer movie star take, and the side bang more firmly secured into a vintage wave.
But the tribute was undeniable.
Taylor's been knocking it out of the park since she released her debut album at 16 back in 2006, something she noted in her acceptance speech saying; "I cannot express how unbelievable it is to me that I still do this and that you still care." And if we're honest it's making us emotional.
