Pinalakpakan ang naging acceptance speech ni Taylor Swift nang tanggapin nito ang first ever Icon Award mula sa Teen Choice Award noong nakaraang August 11 sa Hermosa Beach in California.
Natuwa si Taylor sa pag-abot sa kanya ng traditional surfboard na may photos ng kanyang mga alagang pusa na sina Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson, and Benjamin Button.
Sa kanyang acceptance speech ay humingi rin siya ng suporta para mabigyan ng equal pay ang US women’s soccer team. Heto ang speech ni Taylor:
“Okay, all right, okay, we have a lot to talk about. Whoa, but first I want to talk about Alex Morgan. The fact that she’s here presenting this to me is such an honor. Not only winning the World Cup with her amazing teammates, right? But while they were winning the World Cup, they were also taking a historic stand in terms of gender equality, gender pay gap.
Please, please, please support her and her teammates because this isn’t over yet. It’s not resolved. Get online and talk about it. Let people know how you feel about it because what happened to them is unfair; it’s happening everywhere and they are heroes and icons for standing up.”
