“Before this I had directed and written my music videos but I had never made a short film before,” the artist said during her acceptance speech for best long-form video. “We put our entire hearts into this, trying to make something that might be worthy of the love that you, the fans, have shown this song.”
At the 2022 VMAs, where Taylor also rocked another gorgeous sequined outfit, the “Shake It Off” singer announced her 10th studio album, Midnights.
“You guys, I’m just so proud of what we made. We wouldn’t have been able to make this short film if it weren’t for you, the fans,” Taylor said during her acceptance speech for video of the year. “And I had sort of made up my mind that if you were going to be this generous and give us this, I thought it might be a fun moment to tell you that my brand-new album comes out Oct. 21.”
