Yep, Miss Innocent said ‘shit’ during her performance and the AMA producers were in like a light with the bleeps. 

She also became the most awarded female artist at the ceremony, breaking the record previously held by Whitney Houston 

In her acceptance speech, she urged people to get out and vote. 

This award and every single award given out tonight were voted on by the people. And you know what else is voted on by the people is the midterm elections on November 6. Get out and vote.

She also won Best Rock Pop Album and Tour of the Year on the night, bringing her tally up to 22.

Woke Taylor is here.

Migos won Best Pop Rock Group at everyone was really confused 

Mariah Carey performed with a load of naked models in her dress 

Good work if you can get it.
