Taylor Swift won her third consecutive artist of the year prize at the American Music Awards on Sunday night, but she missed the show for a good reason: She said she's busy re-recording her early music after her catalog was sold. Swift beat out Justin Bieber, Post Malone, and Roddy Ricch to win the top award at the ceremony, which featured a mix of live performances and artists appearing via video. More winners, from the AP:
