American Music Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA – 09 Oct 2018

Going into the American Music Awards, Taylor Swift became embroiled in a feud with her former record label over whether she had the right to play her old hits.

The star took to the stage in a prison-style white shirt, stencilled with the names of the six albums her old label owns, and sang The Man – a song about women’s struggle to be taken seriously in the music industry.

After standing for applause, Swift was presented with the Artist of the Decade award by legendary singer-songwriter Carole King.

That brings her total tally of AMA trophies to 29, breaking a record held by Michael Jackson, who received 24 American Music Awards.
