The 2019 MTV Video Music Awards officially begun with Taylor Swift performance. American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress whose new album was released last week Friday (August 23rd) wasted no time to perform her recent song ‘LOVER’. she also performed the anthem ”You need to calm down”
As in the official video, Swift’s VMA performance took a direct and clear stance against those who take time out of their day to hate on marginalized groups of people, specifically the LGBTQ+ community. It began with Swift sitting in a lounge chair before being joined by some familiar faces from the video, including her good friend Todrick Hall and plus-size model, actor, and choreographer Dexter Mayfield, among others.
To further drive home the song’s message of love and acceptance, the 29-year-old pop star had the words “Equality Act” flash across the screen, a reminder to everyone watching to support legislation that would offer specific protections for LGBTQ+
people in housing, employment, credit, and more areas.
