    According to The Sun, Taylor is being honored with a “Global Icon” award.

    Take it with a grain of salt, since it’s The Sun.

    UPDATE: The Guardian confirmed

    I guess Taylor is travelling or is she too busy with the re-recordings?

    Taylor Swift will receive the global icon award at the 2021 Brit Awards, which will be held on Tuesday, May 11. Swift will become the first female artist and the first non-English artist to receive the award, which the Brits characterize as their highest accolade. The only previous recipients are Elton John (2014), David Bowie(2016) and Robbie Williams (2017).

    The award is given “in recognition of her immense impact on music across the world and incredible repertoire and achievements to date.”

    Swift could leave the event with two awards. She is also nominated for international female solo artist, an award she won in 2015. She is competing in that category with four other American artists — Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Cardi B and Miley Cyrus.

    As long as Future Nostalgia wins AOTY, I’m happy.

    And I bet Taylor will win International Female, but since Taylor, Ariana and Billie have already won, and Cardi didn’t really do as much last year, I kinda hope Miley wins.

    Kinda funny award since Taylor often gets dragged by stans for being “local”. I guess she showed them.

    I think she is local in English speaking countries, it is true she has very weak stats in continental Europe, thus she is accused of local, but in US/UK/AU/CA  and some Asian countries she is doing good. Brits also have the Global Success Award which is just for certain year, when a British act had global success, like Adele and Ed, but this Global Icon is more a life-time achievement award and it is the first time they give it to a woman.

    Yeah she isn’t huge in Europe like say Rihanna, Gaga or so.. mainly because she was country for a long part of her career and country was majorly local…edm and dance pop are/were majorly dominant in Europe.  But her stats in Us blow other artists relative  success in Europe out of water. She dominated Us market like crazy.

    she truly isn’t as big in the UK as in the US, and isn’t as big here as some of her peers (eg ariana) but her albums sold well last year and that proved she can still maintain global success even with such a big stylistic change

    She is bigger than Ariana…1989 the album has charted longer in top 10 as opposed to all of Arianas albums on Uk charts…she also sold more than Ariana there.what she doesn’t have is many hit singles in Uk.

    She isn’t as huge as she is in Us/ and is nothing compared to say success of Rihanna or Madonna in European countries.

    not trying to create some battle but ariana has sold 20.2M certified units and taylor 17.8M, remembering that taylor has a 7 year advantage

    Certifications are not sales. 1 million certified singles does not equal 1 million certified albums. When they add certifications,they add single sales with album sales in 1:1 ratio(which is not how total album units are calculated) Anyways not going to discuss chart material on Brits thread anymore but yeah… Taylor isn’t as huge as she is in Us..but she sold more album units than Ari. Taylor’s  singles individually did not perform that well.
