(Newser) – Taylor Swift's fans have done it again, voting her the American Music Awards artist of the year for a third time. The 23-year-old pop star also won country album of the year for Red and favorite female country and pop/rock artist, giving her a leading four trophies as fans celebrated the women of pop music. Her win came after Katy Perry dazzled with her show-opening performance, Lady Gaga and R. Kelly staged a presidential affair during their performance of "Do What U Want," Rihanna's mom presented her with an award, and Miley Cyrus closed performances with the assistance of a giant lip-syncing CGI kitty on her song "Wrecking Ball."
