‘You Need To Calm Down’ singer Taylor Swift was anything but calm when she took to the 2019 Teen Choice Awards stage in Hermosa Beach, California, to accept the ceremony’s inaugural Icon Award (August 11).
Presented a personalized surfboard (with photos of her cats emblazoned on it) by World Cup champion Alex Morgan, the 29-year-old beamed as she accepted the honor:
“These are my furry children, and this is a really proud moment for me that they are on a Teen Choice surfboard,” she said. “Aesthetically speaking, this might be my favorite award.”
Beyond thanking the show’s coordinators and her faithful fans, affectionately called #Swifties, the Pop diva sent fans into a frenzy with the announcement of the release date of her new single. Watch inside:
‘Lover’ – the title track for her August 23rd due new album – will make its debut on digital shelves Friday, Aug. 16.
