Taylor Swift showed affection to DJ-producer-singer Calvin Harris at the Billboard Music Awards while the cameras were rolling. Swift kissed her rumoured boyfriend on the cheek and gave him a hug before winning the award for top Billboard 200 album Sunday night.
"I am so happy to win this for 1989," Swift said at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. "To the fans who I talk to online and the ones I see at the shows, I love you so much more than I'll ever be able to say to you."
Swift, who sat next to Harris, kicked off the awards by debuting her action-filled music video for Bad Blood that stars Selena Gomez and Lena Dunham, and showcases Swift as a fighting vixen.
The video opened with Swift and Gomez fighting men in an office and then fighting each other. It ended with Swift's and Gomez's armies going head to head. Other stars in the clip included Mariska Hargitay, Ellen Pompeo, Jessica Alba and Ellie Goulding and Hayley Williams of Paramore.
Swift swapped her first two verses with new ones from rapper Kendrick Lamar for Bad Blood, a song rumoured to be about Swift's friendship with Katy Perry.
"I am so excited I got to show the world," Swift told the audience.
