Taylor Swift took home the Global Icon award at the 2021 Brit Awards


On Tuesday, Taylor Swift took home the global icon award at the 2021 Brit Awards, as she becomes both the first woman and first non-English artist to take home the award.

She’s also the youngest person to win the coveted prize.

Swift, 31, went on stage to give a powerful speech as she accepted the award from Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams, who called her one of the “biggest names in the history of music” and “an inspiration to people all around the world.”

Swift thanked the people who made appearances during a sizzle reel about her career, including Ed Sheeran, Selena Gomez, Zoƫ Kravitz and Annie Lennox.
