Taylor Swift gets political at awards

"So the whole time I was writing an album based on all the facets of a reputation and how it affects you, what it actually means to you, I was surrounded by friends and family and loved ones, who never loved me less based on the fluctuations of public opinion".

Brett Kavanaugh swearing in ceremony
People hoping to see Justice Brett Kavanaugh's first day on the Supreme Court bench are waiting in long lines outside the court. Kavanaugh was " caught up in a hoax set up by the Democrats", Trump told reporters, without elaborating.

Swift had announced on Sunday that she was voting for Tennessee's Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, breaking her long-standing refusal to discuss anything politics. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. Other performers include Cardi B with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood, twenty one pilots and Jennifer Lopez.

Swift will open the AMAs with her "Reputation" track "I Did Something Bad", marking her first awards show performance since 2016, when she sang "1989" hit "Out of the Woods" at that year's Grammys.
