"This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people, and you know what else is voted on by the people", she said, "The midterm elections on November 6". "I really wanna thank my daughter".

On Sunday, Swift provoked a storm by breaking her silence on politics and announcing she would vote for two Democrats in Tennessee in the USA congressional midterm elections in November. On tour, she performs the song with a drawn-out introduction, and Swift opted for that same arrangement on the AMA stage, even pausing for dramatic effect after the venomous lyric "if a man talks shit then I owe him nothing". "I gotta prove people wrong".
