While Justin Bieber may have gotten some boos, Taylor Swift got nothing but love at the Billboard Music Awards.

She won eight of the 11 awards she was up for - including top artist and top Billboard 200 album for "Red." She also performed on the show, starting her take on her hit "22" backstage and working her way up to the main stage at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Unlike The Beeb, Swift was able to poke a little fun at herself for the way her personal life has been portrayed in the news.

Amid reports that she's dumped a string of boyfriends, she told the audience in accepting her award: "You are the longest and best relationship I ever had."
