Taylor Swift Opens 2019 MTV VMAs With Rainbows And Drag Queens
Taylor Swift closed out a merciless summer season with a rainbow-infused efficiency on the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.
The singer made her triumphant return to the VMAs stage opening the 36th annual ceremony on Monday evening in her first main televised efficiency following the discharge of her seventh studio album, “Lover.”
Swift took the stage on the high of the award present to carry out back-to-back numbers from the album, kicking off the ceremony together with her satisfaction anthem “You Want To Calm Down” alongside BFF Todrick Corridor and a bevy of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” stars.
She then blessed the group with a world-premiere efficiency of the album’s titular monitor, buying and selling within the theatrics for an acoustic second.
The pop star has been absent from the VMAs stage since performing “Unhealthy Blood” alongside Nicki Minaj on the 2015 ceremony, the place she walked away with the Moonman trophy for Video of The Yr and a slew of different awards.
After a shutout ultimately 12 months’s ceremony, the singer is heading into the evening as probably the most nominated artist alongside Ariana Grande, with 12 nods throughout main classes ― probably the most she’s ever obtained in a single 12 months ― for her music movies “You Want To Calm Down” and “Me!”
The efficiency caps off every week of high-profile public engagements for the usually non-public pop star, who gave nary a single interview throughout the promotion of her final album, “Fame.”

Days later, her she sat down with “CBS Good Morning” for a revealing profile that touched on the inspirations behind the brand new album, her ongoing conflict with megaproducer Scooter Braun and a uncommon look inside her non-public life.
And in case you haven’t uninterested in her but, Swift can also be set to be the musical visitor on “Saturday Night time Stay” with “Fleabag” creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge serving as host in October.
