Taylor Swift dominated the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night (28.08.22) with three wins.

The pop star took home three trophies from the glitzy ceremony in Newark, New Jersey including the coveted Video of the Year for 'All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version)' - making her the first artist to win the prize three times and the first to win for a video they directed themselves.

She also took home accolades for Best Longform Video and Best Direction for the short film which starred 'Stranger Things' actress Sadie Sink.

Picking up the Best Direction prize, she told the audience at the Prudential Center: "I'm so honoured to have been recognised alongside such amazing artists and directors in this category, and I just want to say I am so heartened by the fact that, for the first time in VMA history, four of the directors nominated in this video of the year category are women.

Taylor also used her platform on the night to announce plans to release a new album called 'Midnights' in October.

It was also a big night for Lizzo who won the Video for Good prize for 'About Damn Time' and former One Direction star who took home the Album of the Year honour for 'Harry's House' as well as Cinematography and Best Pop for 'As It Was'.
