Taylor Swift was without doubt the biggest winner at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards – but some of her best moments happened off air.
All the attention at the VMAs was on the Anti Hero singer, who made history as the first artist to win Video Of The Year four times, as her every move was caught on camera at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
It was a sensational night for Taylor, who has now overtaken Beyoncé (16) in the overall VMAs standings but still trails behind Queen of Pop Madonna (20).
Some of her funniest and wildest moments did not get aired on TV, instead going viral on social media, but luckily we were paying attention.
One of the best behind-the-scenes moments happened when Taylor got giddy with excitement when she was offered a drink near the start of the evening.
