Taylor Swift swooped another award to add to her growing collection, by accepting the Video of the Year award at the 2019 MTV VMA’s.

Swift won the much-coveted award for her LGBTQ anthem “You Need to Calm Down” beating out contenders Ariana Grande, 21 Savage ft. J. Cole, Billie Eilish, Jonas Brothers, and Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus for the honor.


During her acceptance speech, the 29-year-old singer/songwriter thanked fans, urging them to sign the Equality Act petition.

“I want to thank everyone that signed that petition because it now has half a million signatures, which is five times the amount that it would need to warrant a response from the White House,” Swift said of the Act that would give LGBTQ people equal rights under the law.

The music video for “You Need to Calm Down” features a star-studded cast including Ellen Degeneres, RuPaul, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ciara, Ryan Reynolds, and Swift’s former nemesis Katy Perry.
