Winning the Moonman for Best Female Video? Awesome! Getting to shade your ex in front of the entire world? Priceless! Taylor Swift is having a good night at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, everybody!

Swift won the Moonman for the Harry Styles-inspired ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ — and got to rub it in the One Direction‘s star’s face at the same time!

After her win was announced, Taylor received joyous hugs from Selena Gomez — sending congratulatory vibes right back to her bestie — as well as her video co-star Reeve Carney. She walked the runway to the stage in her slinky, elegant, slit-in-the-back twinsies gown with Selena, and accepted her shiny Moonman from glittery moonmen Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams and producer Nile Rodgers.

“Hi! Oh my God, thank you. Wow, I’m such a huge fan of yours,” she said, looking in Pharrell’s direction.

“I want to thank the fans because I tweeted about this a lot.”

She laughed after saying that, but she wasn’t kidding! The evidence:


“I really, really wanted this and thank you so much for doing this for me,” Swift continued. “I feel really lucky because I have both the video director, Anthony Mandler, and my co-star, Reeve Carney,here tonight, and I’m so happy that they’re here. And this is just awesome.”

Also awesome? What T. Swizzle said next:

“I also want to thank the person who inspired this song, who knows exactly who he is, because now I got one of these,” she said, holding her award. “Thank you so much!”

The camera quickly cut to the members of 1D applauding in the audience. A gum-chewing Styles could barely suppress a smile.
