Taylor Swift was presented with the Global Icon award by “Game of Thrones” actor Maisie Williams, becoming the first woman to win the honor. In her speech, Swift reminisced on her career thus far and offered some advice for aspiring artists, saying: “There might be times when you put your whole heart and soul into something, and it is met with cynicism or skepticism. You cannot let that crush you, you have to let it fuel you because we live in a world where everybody has the right to say anything they want about you at any time. But just please remember, that you have the right to prove them wrong.”
