I’m so lucky,” Swift said of her record producer. “I would love to tell you this is the best moment of my life. But I feel this happy when I finish a song or when I crack the code to a bridge that I love or when I’m shot-listing a music video or when I’m rehearsing with dancers or my band. Or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show. For me the reward is the work. All I want to do is to keep being able to do this. It I love it so much. it makes me so happy. It makes be unbelievably blown away that it makes some people happy who voted for this award, too. All I want to do is to keep doing this. So thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do what I love so much. Mind blown, thank you so much.”
