Joined on the red carpet by the legendary “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” singer Cyndi Lauper, she accepted the first-ever Woman of the Decade Award on the eve of her 30th birthday. The award was presented to her by The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil.

During her acceptance speech, the Grammy-winning pop star looked back at the past decade of her career and criticized how the media has portrayed her. She ended the speech by saying “lately I’ve been focusing less on doing what they say I can’t do and more on doing whatever the hell I want.”

Taylor also took the opportunity to address Scooter Braun directly and called out the overall “toxic male privilege” in the music industry.

“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 that Carlyle Group. Yet, to this day, none of these investors have bothered to contact me or my team directly, to perform their due diligence on their investment,” Taylor said.

“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 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 right to own their music. And of course, he’s nice to you. If you’re in this room, you have something he needs,” she added.

“The fact is that private equity 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.”

Taylor asked everyone in the audience to “stand as an example for someone else in the next generation that loves the same thing that we love.”

She ended her lengthy speech by saying, “No matter what else enters the conversation we will always bring it back to music. As for me, lately, I’ve been focusing less on what they say I can’t do and more on doing whatever the hell I want.”

Billowy in silhouette, Taylor Swift’s jumpsuit flaunts an asymmetric bodice that descends into relax-fit legs for a bohemian aesthetic. Bejeweled with chain shoulder straps and delicate chains at the front, it embodies understated decadence.

She styled her jumpsuit with Sergio Rossi SR1 shoes, a Jimmy Choo clutch, earrings by Ana Khouri and Âme, a bracelet and rings by Marli New York, and rings by Maxior and Le Vian.
