Taylor Swift Returns To ACM Awards- Performed The Character Of ‘Betty’
Taylor Swift returns to the ACM Awards in a pretty sweet manner. Swift is the nine-time ACM Award winner. She makes her entry with the performance of her new album Folklore on Wednesday. Swift performed the character of ‘Betty’ from the album.
Folklore is Taylor’s eighth studio album, and it released on Friday. The album consists of 16 songs that make the listeners undergo the pain of losing their loved ones to bursting into tears and to screaming “F**k you, forever” at them.
“One thing I did purposely on this album was put the Easter eggs within the lyrics, quite just the videos,” Swift said while chatting with fans live before the album’s release.
“I created character arcs and recurring themes that map who is singing about who. For instance, there is a collection of three songs I refer to as ‘The Teenage Love Triangle.’
These three songs explore a love triangle from all three people’s perspectives at different times in their lives.”
Coming back to Swift’s performance on Wednesday at the Awards show. This is Taylor’s first performance at a country show in seven years. Sat on a stool, lit by a spotlight in a dimmed room, Swift belted out her latest hits on the stage. She also did her own makeup, styling and hair for the award show.
On Sunday, Swift announced on social media about her performance on the ACM Award show. She said, “Bout to show up at your party @acmawards.”
After the release of her album Folklore, Swift revealed that “Betty” was named after Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively’s third child. Also, the names Inez and James within the album are the names of Lively and Reynolds’ two oldest daughters.
