The American Music Awards doesn’t have the respectability of the Grammys or the pizazz of the MTV VMAs, but it’s got…well, it’s got a pointy award and people that show up, and that’s all you really need for a music award show.

Dua Lipa seems like the chick who doesn’t have time for petty white girl nonsense, so she’s just getting high beyond the field house. Naturally, there’s no room for Switzerlands in this game, and she learned the hard way what it’s like to be vaulted and then slammed to the ground by Taylor’s legion. Continue reading
