Swift, whose last album dropped in November 2014, was not nominated for any awards this year – well, not technically. The track she 'secretly' co-wrote with Harris, 'This Is What You Came For' won Best Male Video. Taylor was also rumoured to have sung back-up vocals on the song.
This is what the Scottish DJ had to say in his video acceptance speech:
Wow! Wow! First of all, I'm so sorry I can't be there, I have a show tonight in the UK or else I would definitely be there. MTV, this is crazy. I need to thank Rihanna from the bottom of my heart. You're a superstar, every time we work together you bring something magical to the project so thank you. Emil Nava the director you're a legend, you're my favorite man on earth, thank you for everything you've done for me. And everybody who supported this song, who watched the video, I love you so much. Thank you. This is amazing. I love you. Thank you, MTV.
