Taylor Swift is adding yet another award to her ever-expanding trophy cabinet…
The “You Need to Calm Down” singer is set to receive the first-ever ‘Icon Award’ at this year’s Teen Choice Awards. And quite frankly, we don’t know what took them so long to a) introduce it, and b) give it to Taylor Swift!
“As one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with more than 50 million albums sold, Taylor Swift is a pop culture icon whose accolades and achievements go beyond topping music charts and selling out stadiums worldwide,” read a statement from FOX, who will be airing the ceremony next month.
“Swift is also one of today’s biggest social influencers, using her voice and platform to inspire and create positive change.”
No arguments there!
Fun fact: Taylor Swift currently holds the record for the most Teen Choice Awards ever won by a solo artist. She has won a staggering 25 awards over the years, and has been nominated over 60 times!
As well as receiving her Icon Award, Taylor Swift could potentially walk away with another seven awards. Some of her other nominations include ‘Choice Female Artist’, as well as ‘Choice Single: Female Artist’ and ‘Choice Pop Song’ for Me!
Looks like it’s going to be a big and unforgettable night for her!
The 2019 Teen Choice Awards will air as a two-hour live show on Sunday, August 11 at 8 pm ET. We can’t wait!
