Taylor Swift Gets a Sweet Kiss from Calvin Harris at Billboard Music Awards
Calvin Harris‘ place in her inner circle was also cemented in the most public of ways: a few awards show hugs – and a kiss!
Before she picked up each of her awards – including Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Billboard Chart Achievement, and Top Billboard 200 Album – Swift, 25, got a supportive squeeze from Harris before she took the stage.
(She also got hugs from the other members of her front row crew: brother Austin, who graduated from college this weekend, Ed Sheeran, and her “Bad Blood” video co-stars Martha Hunt, Hailee Steinfeld and Serayah.)
Swift’s video was so hotly-anticipated that it got its own custom emoji: a bandaid with a black center. It’s a reference to a lyric from the song – “Band-Aids don’t fix bullet holes”
After picking up the award for Top Artist, she started her speech with “Oh, this is such a good night!” before giving a shout out to her brother.
“To anyone who is graduating this year, this is for you!” Swift said. “Congratulations … We have so much more to accomplish and so much more to fight for!”
