Taylor Swift Accepts First-Ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence at the 2014 American Music Awards

Taylor Swift Dick Clark Award AMAs

The prize was presented to her by the legendary Diana Ross. Swift complimented Ross, calling her a woman who “stood up for herself in a time when it was not popular for a woman to stand up for herself.”

In accepting the inaugural award, Swift gave shout outs to her fans, talking about her album listening parties, her interaction with them on Twitter and other social media, and showed her gratitude for their support.

“What you did by going out and investing in music and albums is you are saying that you believe in the same thing that I believe in: that music is valuable and music should be consumed in albums and albums should be consumed as art and appreciated,” she said, no doubt referring to her anti-Spotify agenda.

Taylor opened the show performing “Blank Space,” which currently leads the Billboard Hot 100.

Taylor Swift wore a Dick Clark Award for Excellence ring as a beauiful finishing touch to her fabulous look. Casa Reale was founded in 2013 by Joseph Yushuva, founder and partner in jewelry manufacturer JPM Brothers since 1996, known throughout the jewelry industry as a leader in production of exquisite fashion jewelry. Joseph’s expertise and connections led to the creation of Casa Reale, a signature fashion jewelry brand crafted to be a bold statement in luxury and royal artistry.

Casa Reale has been sold internationally in some of the world’s most renowned jewelers in the United States, Dubai and Moscow and has been worn by both royalty and celebrities. The designs of Casa Reale are crafted to be a statement in luxury and glamour, unmistakably creative and made for the woman who is bold, confident and loves to be noticed.
