Absolutely love this one, right? (audience applauds) Whew! This is sort of a, it’s
not a short speech. So just, I don’t want
this to slip and break ’cause it’s very important to me. – I got it. – Thank you so much. (audience laughs) She’s so supportive, we
all need someone like that. (laughs) I’m Taylor, good evening. I wanna first thank Billboard
from the bottom of my heart for this honor, for– Whoa, this is going great so far. (audience laughs) Excellent, okay. I wanna say thank you so much to Billboard for giving me this honor, for naming me as their
Woman of the Decade. So what does it mean to be
the woman of this decade? Well, it means I’ve seen a lot. When this decade began I was 20 years old and I had put out my self-titled
debut album when I was 16, and then the album that would
become my breakthrough album, which was called Fearless. And I saw that there was a world of music and experience beyond country music that I was really curious about. I saw pop stations send
my songs Love Story and You Belong With Me to
number one for the first time. And I saw that as a
female in this industry, some people will always have
slight reservations about you. Whether you deserve to be there,
whether your male producer or co-writer is the
reason for your success, or whether it was a savvy record label. It wasn’t. (audience laughs) I saw that people love to
explain away a woman’s success in the music industry, and
I saw something in me change due to this realization. This was the decade when I became a mirror for my detractors. Whatever they decided I couldn’t
do is exactly what I did. – [Audience Member] Woo! – Oh, I’ll take it.
(applauding) Thanks! Whatever they criticized about me became material for musical satires or inspirational anthems, and the best lyrical
examples I can think of are songs like Mean, Shake
It Off, and Blank Space. Basically if people had
something to say about me, I usually said something
back in my own way. And this reflect dictated
more than just my lyrics. When Fearless did win Album
of the Year at the Grammys and I did become the youngest
solo artist to ever win the award, with that win
came criticism and backlash in 2010 that I’d never experienced before as a young new artist. All of a sudden people had
doubts about my singing voice, was it strong enough, was
I a little bit pitchy? All of a sudden they weren’t
sure if I was the one writing the songs because
sometimes in the past I had had co-writers in the room. At that time I couldn’t understand why this wave of harsh
criticism had hit me so hard. I believe a popular
headline back then was, A Swift Backlash, which is
clever, you gotta give it to ’em. (audience laughs) And now I realize that
this is just what happens to a woman in music if she
achieves success or power beyond people’s comfort level. I now have come to expect
that with good news comes some sort of pushback. But I didn’t know that then. So then I decided that I
would be the only songwriter on my third album, Speak Now, and that I would tour constantly, work on my vocals every day, and perfect my stamina in a live show. I decided I would be what
they said I couldn’t be. I didn’t know then that soon enough people would decide on something else I wasn’t quite doing
right, and then the circle would keep going on and
on and rolling along and I would keep
accommodating, over-correcting, in an effort to appease my critics. They’re saying I’m dating
too much in my 20s? Okay, I’ll stop, I’ll just be single. For years. (audience laughs) Now they’re saying my album Red is filled with too many breakup songs? Okay, okay, I’ll make one
about moving to New York and deciding that really
my life is more fun with just my friends. Oh, they’re saying my
music is changing too much for me to stay in country music? All right. Okay, here’s an entire genre shift and a pop album called 1989. – [Audience Member] Woo! – Ah!
(applauding) You heard it? Sick! Now it’s that I’m showing
you too many pictures of me with my friends, okay,
I can stop doing that too. Now I’m actually a calculated manipulator rather than a smart businesswoman? Okay, I’ll disappear from
public view for years. Now I’m being cast a villain to you? Okay, here’s an album called Reputation and there are lots of snakes everywhere. In the last 10 years I have watched as women in this industry are criticized and measured up to each
other and picked at for their bodies, their
romantic lives, their fashion, or have you ever heard someone
say about a male artist, I really like his songs but
I don’t know what it is, there’s just something
about him I don’t like? No! That criticism is reserved for us! But you know, I’ve learned
that the difference between those who can continue
to create in that climate usually comes down to this. Who lets that scrutiny break them and who just keeps making art. I’ve watched as one of my
favorite artists of this decade, Lana Del Rey, was ruthly criticized– Yes! (man mumbles) Yeah. (applauding)
Thank you. We have similar tastes, I like it. She was ruthlessly criticized
in her early career and then slowly but surely she
turned into, in my opinion, the most influential artist in pop. Her vocal stylings, her
lyrics, her aesthetics, they’ve been echoed and repurposed
in every corner of music, and this year her incredible album is nominated for Album of
the Year at the Grammys because she just kept making art. And that example should inspire all of us, that the only way forward
is forward motion. That we shouldn’t let
obstacles like criticism slow down the creative
forces that drive us. And I see that fire in the newer
faces in our music industry whose work I absolutely love. I see it in Lizzo, Rosalia, Tayla Parx, Hayley Kiyoko, King Princess,
Camila Cabello, Halsey, Megan Thee Stallion,
Princess Nokia, Nina Nesbitt, Sigrid, Normani, H.E.R.,
Maggie Rogers, Becky G, Dua Lipa, Ella Mai, Billie Eilish. (audience cheers) And so many other amazing women who are making music right now. Female artists in music
have dominated this decade in growth, streaming,
record and ticket sales, and critical acclaim. So why are we doing so well? Because we have to grow fast. We have to work this hard, we have to prove that we deserve this, and we have to top our last achievements. Women in music, onstage
or behind the scenes, are not allowed to coast. We are held at a higher, sometimes impossible-feeling standard. And it seems that my fellow female artists have taken this challenge
and they have accepted it. It seems like the pressure
that could have crushed us made us into diamonds instead. And what didn’t kill us
actually did make us stronger. But we need to keep advocating for women in the recording studios,
behind the mixing board, in A and R meetings,
because rather than fighting to be taken seriously in their fields, these women are still struggling to even have a chance to be in the room. (audience applauds) We now find ourselves fully immersed in a vast frontier that
wasn’t around last decade, and that is the streaming world. In music, we’re always walking
hand-in-hand with technology, and sometimes that is so awesome, like how now we’re able
to just drop a song that we made yesterday. I’ve spoken out in the
past about the future of revenue flow for
creators and the songwriters and producers who are being left behind due to these rapid shifts and changes. I still don’t think that record contracts or producers agreements
have fully caught up, and I hope that in the next decade, we can keep searching
for the right solution for producers, songwriters, and creators. Don’t you? (audience applauds) Lately there’s been a new
shift that has affected me personally and that I feel is
a potentially harmful force in our industry, and as
your resident loud person, I feel the need to bring it up. And that is the unregulated
world of private equity coming in and buying up our
music as if it is real estate. As if it’s an app or a shoe line. This just happened to
me without my approval, consultation, or consent. After I was denied the chance
to purchase my music outright, my entire catalog was sold to Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings in a deal that I’m told was funded by the Soros Family, 23
Capital, and the Carlyle Group. Yet to this day none of these investors have ever bothered to contact
me or my team directly. To perform their due
diligence on their investment. On their investment in me. To ask how I might feel about
the new owner of my art. The music I wrote. The videos I created. Photos of me, my handwriting,
my album designs. And of course Scooter never
contacted me or my team to discuss it prior to the sale or even when it was announced. I’m fairly certain he knew exactly how I would feel about it though. And let me just say that the definition of the toxic male
privilege in our industry is people saying, but he’s
always been nice to me, when I’m raising valid
concerns about artists and their rights to own their music. And of course he’s nice to you. If you’re in this room, you
have something he needs. The fact is that private equity is what enabled this man to think, according to his own social media post, that he could buy me. But I’m obviously not going willingly. Yet the most amazing thing was to discover that it would be the women in our industry who would have my back and
show me the most vocal support at one of the most difficult times, and I will never, ever forget it. Like, ever. (cheers)
(applauds) But to conclude, I will
say that in 10 years I’ve seen forward steps in our industry, in our awareness, our inclusion, our ability to start calling
out unfairness and misconduct. I’ve seen the advent of social media, the way it can boost the
breakthrough of emerging artists and I’ve seen fans become
more engaged and supportive than ever before. I’ve leaned on that support and it has kept me in a
place where no matter what, I always wanted to keep
making music for them. I was up on a stage in
New York City in 2014 accepting Billboard Woman of the Year and I was talking about
the future of streaming. How we needed to make sure
that the female artists, writers, and producers
of the next generation were protected and compensated fairly. This was before my record deal
with Universal, last year, that would contractually guarantee that the artists on their roster be paid upon any sale of their
Spotify shares unrecoupable. So thank you for that. (audience applauds) This speech I’m referring
to was on my 25th birthday. I’m about to turn 30 tonight, woo! (cheers)
(applauds) But my exact quote during the speech was, “I really just feel like
we need to continue to try “to offer something to a
younger generation of musicians, “because somewhere right now
your future Woman of the Year “is probably sitting in a piano
lesson or in a girls’ choir “and today right now we
need to take care of her.” I’ve since learned that
at that exact moment, an 11-year-old girl in California really was taking piano lessons and really was in a girls’ choir. And this year she has been
named Woman of the Year at the age of 17, her name is Billie. (audience applauds) And those are the stories
we need to think about every day as we do our
jobs within this industry. The ones where people’s dreams come true and they get to create music
and play it for people. The ones where fans feel
a connection to music that makes their day easier,
makes their night more fun, makes their love feel more sacred, or their heartache feel less isolating. The ones where all of you in this room stand as an example for someone
else in the next generation who loves the same thing that we love. Music. And no matter what else
enters the conversation, we will always bring it back to music. And as for me, lately I’ve
been focusing less on doing what they say I can’t do and more on doing whatever the hell I want. (applauds)
Thank you for a magnificent, happy, free, confused, sometimes lonely but mostly golden decade. I’m honored to be here tonight. I feel very lucky to be
with you, thank you so much. (cheers)
(applauds)

    Hey guys!!I have an older sister, she really admires taylor swift, like really, I mean it!!
    She's been singing since she was 4, and now shes 17 its really epic how time have changed. But one thing hasn't really changed a bit, her dream to be a singer. She started out with her own YouTube channel, I wonder if you can maybe have a look at it. Would mean the world to me and her. She really wanna get noticed as a singer. But she does know how to. Any support would be really great🥰 here's her link-https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVLTFmz_hokZx_ygsXsjOKw

    I'm glad she gave that shoutout to Lana. It's so clear so many artists have taken inspiration from Lana's (you could say original) ideas. None have given her the acknowledgment she deserves. She invented an entire genre, style, aesthetic for modern music and her ideas have been taken and remade by other artists without credit. Finally, at least, Taylor said something about her.

    Yeah, it’s called life. Happens to us all. Shit comes in different ways. You work in an office, you get shit, you work as a garbage collector, you get shit, you work as a secretary, you get shit. Males get shit, females get shit. Gays get shit, transexuals get shit. Female music artists get shit. Male music artists get shit. WE ALL get shit. Life is full of it. And yes it is how you deal with the shit that defines us all. Swift is tough, swift is smart, swift is talented. Swift kicks ass. But Swift is all about ME, ME, ME. What she is talking about here effects everybody – we are all bought and payed for and spend our lives seeking, fighting for, liberty and freedom. Most people will never achieve it. Some poor souls have it much worse than others. I like what she says and i like what she fights for, but somehow I don’t think i like her or her motives. Somehow her head is in the clouds or up her ass or something, but it sure as hell ain’t where the average person’s head is. I’m glad she can do, and has achieved, the right ‘to do what the hell she wants’. I’m very pleased for her, but her tone and words are arrogant, condescending, self obsessed and yes, privileged. All a bit bitter, bile ridden and toxic somehow. Hey, but i’m not really allowed to say these things, my voice is of no importance, i am no longer valid it seems. I’m not famous or a celebrity, I’m just a white male privileged asshole, The source of all the problems it seems. Actually what i really am is just a guy trying to live his life and earn a living weighed down by shit like the rest of us. Our shit might be different, but it’s still shit. The sheer unthinking condescending arrogance of this spoilt child is hard to stomach. Jesus christ. The ivory tower ME ME ME nature of this speech makes me want to puke. Male or female, black or white sometimes you have to look at the things you have earned in life and and the reasons you have achieved those things and rejoice in those things and appreciate those things. You have to be aware of your fortune in life and be aware of others less fortunate. This is not the speech of someone looking out for others or aware of the struggle of others, it is the speech of someone saying look at me, i’m special, i can say what i want without consequence, no matter how true or false, i’m a spoilt brat, now go fuck yourselves. It is the speech of the privileged: Intention and motive are everything in life and i’m not sure her’s are honorable and true. I’m not sure she knows what the life of the average soul looks like or how hard it can be, but then again that doesn’t matter to her really, because it is all about her struggle and how tough it is in her cage with the solid gold bars. Well done taylor.

    When its revealed in the future that the woman of the decade is in fact a man what are the feminists going to do? This is so funny that they've chosen a guy as the woman of the decade!! lol.

    Taylor Swift was born into a very very wealthy family who bought her career. Billboard could have chosen a person much more deserving of this award.

    Taylor is undoubtedly one of the hardest working female musicians of this decade & it always showed. Everything she did to keep her career, to please her fans & accommodate to those who watched her & knew her name shows that she is a lot more than worthy of being woman of the decade. She evolved so so much this decade all of her hard work blood, sweat & tears paid off. Congratulations Taylor

    Males have it much harder than women in all states of life
    I totally respect her but she is completely overlooking it because many men are successful but you look at women now and the praise is heaped upon them an barely any for men

    her selective feminism is so fucking annoying. she’s there to pick up an award yet she’s slandering men throughout her whole ass ted talk. Instead of lawyering up she’s whining about how she got bought like????????? scooter only purchased a company that SHE CAME WITH. he didn’t buy her and her only. all she does is feed off of drama. she’s the biggest bully in the music industry and it’s a shame how y’all r praising her. #WhitePrivilege

    The way she introduced her albums one by one was amazing. The way she spoke with confidence against what the media has been feeding us all this time needs a huge applaud!

    I used to be one of those young naive kids that would say I like her music, but it's something about her that I don't like. I'm 18 now and I realise exactly what it was. It was a contorted narrative created by men in the industry who were too afraid to see a woman succeed at the speed that Taylor was succeeding. I now have so much respect for her and for everything she stands for. There's absolutely nothing that can stop her.
