Taylor Swift — the American Music Awards was YOUR night! We’re so glad you didn’t let Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner’s new romance rain on your parade.
Taylor Swift — you proved once again at the 2013 American Music Awards that you’re one smart, self-confident and rockin’ young woman. You clearly decided that you weren’t going to let any romance drama with your ex-boyfriend Harry Styles and his new flame Kendall Jenner get in the way of your maximum enjoyment of your huge AMAs night.

Taylor, you had four gigantic reasons to celebrate: You were voted Artist of the Year, Favorite Female Country Artist, Favorite Country Album, and Favorite Pop/Rock Artist by your millions of fans. As always, you were modest, gracious and glowing as you thanked your fans for the huge honors.
But you weren’t just professional and polite.
No, Taylor, it appears you decided to look completely hot and have a kick-ass time. Of course, you must have known that your ex Harry, 19, had spent the past few days in LA, hooking up with Kendall, 18.
A dinner date at Craig’s Restaurant, after Harry’s X Factor taping, may have been followed by a sleepover at Kendall’s house, according to the Daily Mail. Harry was spotted texting Kendall the next night by a HollywoodLife.com source, and then of course, Kendall was a presenter at the AMAs and even hugged Harry after One Direction won the Favorite Pop/Rock Group award.
Oh, brother! How annoying that must have been.
Taylor — a lesser or less secure woman would have let Harry and Kendall’s canoodling unnerve her as well as annoy her. But Taylor — you’re NOT that weak-kneed woman at all. Instead, you ratcheted up your role model status another big notch.
If you were the least bit bothered by Harry’s antics, you gave no clue. You stunned in your sexy, sparkling Julien Macdonald strapless mini dress — revenge dressing at its best! You laughed, you danced during performances you loved, and you even had a mutual OMG! freakout with Justin Timberlake when he won his Favorite R&B/Soul Album award.
Taylor Swift — It’s Cool That You Gave Harry Styles The Cold Shoulder At The AMAs
“A couple of years ago, I just decided that instead of stressing out about being at an awards show, I kind of approach it as if you get to go to the best concert of all time,” you told HollywoodLife.com after the AMAs show. “I felt really lucky to be in the audience tonight and to be dancing to all of it!”
Amazing attitude, Taylor — and so right! You have the perfect perspective. You’re 23, you’re talented, you’re on top of the world, and you’re not going to let some guy — even if it’s Harry Styles — get you down!
While you were backstage, you and Harry walked by each other “at least three times during the show and didn’t say anything to each other,” an eyewitness told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Harry looked at her as if to say hello, but Taylor just walked by.”
Well Taylor, ignoring or cold-shouldering Harry — whichever you did — was completely cool. After all, why let Harry make you the least bit uncomfortable or bring you down in any way? You didn’t need that.
No, you needed and deserved to fully enjoy your AMAs moments, despite Harry and Kendall. We’re so glad you did! Don’t you agree, HollywoodLifers? Was Taylor smart to ignore Harry and Kendall? Let me know!
