Get ready for Taylor Swift to blaze the stage and leave you speechless at this year’s American Music Awards!
E! News recently caught up with the show’s host, Ciara, who had nothing but great things to say about the 29-year-old’s highly-anticipated set going down on November 24. As our readers know, the Lover crooner is slated to receive the Artist of the Decade honor at the ceremony, too.
The Level Up singer all but asked us to stay glued to our TV screens during the show because Tay is gearing up for something unforgettable! She said:
“It is going to be amazing. I wish I could tell you. I think anytime she gets on the stage it is great energy. She is so fierce and committed to her craft and creativity and its going to be nonstop entertainment.”
Ooh, tell us more!
Ciara continued to gush about the pop songstress, adding:
“She is just brilliant. She is not only a performer, she is an incredible songwriter. She is pioneered the way for a lot of artists with her bravery and her willingness to speak up when she believes in something. There is nothing better than having a voice and knowing your voice and knowing who you are, and she does that.”
She’s certainly right about that last part!
In the last two weeks, Swift has spoken out at length about her ongoing feud with Scooter Braun, Scott Borschetta, and Big Machine Records over the right to perform her old music catalogue (now owned by the pair and BMLG) at the upcoming AMAs.
Taylor first revealed the duo had banned her from singing previous hits in an open letter on Tumblr, but the men quickly denied the starlet’s claims (then backtracked?) and insisted she was circulating a “false narrative.” All parties were able to reach a (provisional?) agreement which stated the artist could sing the songs in question, but it didn’t do much to quell the drama.
The latest development came on Friday, when Justin Bieber‘s manager penned a lengthy message of his own, calling for a peaceful and timely resolution after he and his family started receiving death threats from angry fans. Scooter said:
“Since your public statement last week there have been numerous death threats directed at my family. This morning I spoke out publicly for the first time saying I wouldn’t participate in a social media war. However I came home tonight to find my wife had received a phone call threatening the safety of our children as well as other threats seen above. I won’t go into the details of the past week. I have been at a loss. Thinking of my wife and children, my team and their families, I have gone through a range of emotions on how to deal with this. I write this now only after a deep breath and much reflection. I am certain there is no situation worth ever jeopardizing anyone’s safety.”
In an additional statement, Braun doubled down on his plea for peace, adding:
“Moving forward I would like to find a resolution. I will make myself available whenever works for you. Many have told me that a meeting will never happen as this is not about truth or resolution but instead a narrative for you. I am hopeful that is not the case. I’m right here, ready to speak directly and respectfully. But if you would prefer to make large public statements while refusing to work towards resolving things amicably then I just pray that nobody gets seriously hurt in the process. I continue to wish you the best and hope we can resolve this.”
Well, while that situation works itself out, it’s clear we have something special to look forward to on Sunday night.
Now, as we previously told you, it’s highly unlikely we’ll hear any of Tay’s older classics since there reportedly wasn’t enough time for her to prepare the last-minute changes. But, whatever she does, Ciara’s just guaranteed we’ll all be talking about!!
