Taylor Swift shared a sweet video message to her fans as she won Artist of the Year during the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Monday – but notably was not in attendance.

The Bad Blood hitmaker, 34 – who arrived back to L.A. on Monday afternoon after spending Easter in Pennsylvania with Travis Kelce and his family – was also honored with five other trophies, such as Pop Artist of the Year and Tour of the Year.

After being introduced by NSYNC’s Lance Bass and Backstreet Boys member, A. J. McLean, a clip popped up on a large screen inside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Swift could be seen standing in front of a plain white wall and began with, ‘I want to say thank you so much to anyone who voted for this award.’

‘iHeart, you have just been so incredibly supportive over the course of my entire career.’

‘Especially this year has been pretty spectacular. I’m so grateful for that. To the fans, it’s completely up to you to choose how you spend your time, what concerts you want to go to, what music you want to make the soundtrack to your life.’

The star continued, ‘To anyone who has included me in those choices, I’m so, so, so thankful for that. You know, we have so many exciting things ahead of us.’

‘I’m continuing on with the tour,’ Taylor said of her Eras Tour, which is slated to resume on May 9 in Paris.

‘Most importantly, I have a new album called The Tortured Poets Department which comes out April 19th. I’m so proud of it,’ Swift gushed towards the camera.

In conclusion, she said, ‘I cannot wait to share it with you. Thank you for voting for me for Artist of the Year. I can’t wait to keep having fun with you guys. We have a lot of exciting things coming up. Thank you so much.’

The Grammy winner could be seen wearing a fitted, blue top with capped sleeved and a scooped neckline. A gold-chained necklace as well as a dainty earrings were added to accessorize the look.

Her blonde locks flowed down past her shoulders in light waves while her bangs gently fell onto her forehead.

She not only won Artist of the Year, Pop Artist of the Year and Tour of the Year, but also TikTok Bop of the Year, Best Lyrics for Is It Over Now (Taylor’s Version) and Favorite Tour Style.

Taylor notably attended last year’s ceremony, and was also the recipient of a big win: The Innovator Award.

Swift chose to not make an appearance at the ceremony, despite currently residing in Los Angeles with boyfriend, Travis Kelce, as the couple both enjoy downtime in their busy schedules.

The pair are spending quality time together at her lavish, $25 million mansion located in Beverly Hills.

Last month in March, a source told Us Weekly that the lovebirds are ‘nesting’ and ‘focused on rest and recuperation and relaxing at home and having low-key and chill time together.’

At the time, a separate insider also gave an inside look to DailyMail.com at the pair’s plans as they fully embrace two months of downtime together.

‘This is the first time the two of them have had no commitments and they are both really looking forward to being a normal couple and playing house.’

‘She is looking forward to sleeping in and cooking dinners at home,’ the insider added.

‘They both want their relationship to be as normal as possible and it works because they are both very aware of their fame but neither let it go to their heads.’

Taylor and the Kansas City Chiefs tight end whisked themselves to Pennsylvania to celebrate Easter with his brother, Jason Kelce, and wife Kylie.

The Cool Summer songstress and the NFL player were seen returning to California around 1:30pm local time at the Burbank airport on Monday.

Swift descended from a jet while covered with umbrellas, with Travis also following close behind.

The lovebirds are believed to have stayed at the Four Seasons after enjoying the day with Jason and his family.

On previous visits, Swift has stayed at The Ritz Carlton and has been seen dining at the Four Season’s Jean-Georges restaurant.

The couple has been all but inseparable since Swift returned to the States having completed the Australia and Asia legs of her monster Eras Tour last month and recently came back from a sun-filled vacation on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera.

Pictures showed the couple totally at ease and enjoying time together on the beach. In one snap, Kelce lay sunbathing, with one hand affectionately placed on Swift’s bikini-clad posterior. In others they enjoyed cocktails in the surf.

Once photos of the pair came to light during the tropical getaway, Travis defended his ‘dad bod’ on his New Heights podcast.

And late last month, a source told DailyMail.com that, ‘When it comes to Taylor’s thoughts on his changing body – she loves it.’

‘Travis and his dad bod is the reward he is giving himself for having an epic Super Bowl winning season.’

‘And during his offseason – since he has been able to party and spend some quality time with Taylor – he isn’t training the way that he usually does as he is resting,’ the insider explained.

‘She thinks he is hot in all incarnations and thinks he deserves it. She knows he will be back to peak level later this year, and where he is at now is not a problem at all.’

Swift’s next concert date isn’t until May 9 in Paris, and Kelce is expected to join his girlfriend for at least some of her European tour dates.

Meanwhile the Kansas City Chiefs tight end is currently enjoying some well-earned downtime following the team’s February Super Bowl win in Las Vegas. Organized team activities don’t begin again until off-season workouts start at the end of May.

Kelce and Swift thrilled their legion of fans with cute Easter posts on their official fan pages on Sunday.

Travis’s featured the grinning footballer wearing a bunny ears hat beneath the simple message ‘Happy Easter.’

Meanwhile on Swift’s official fan page @taylornation, her management featured adorable footage of the singer, aged one, being held in her mother, Andrea’s arms.

She wore a pink and white fuzzy bunny onesie complete with bunny ears. The silent clip shows a timestamp of March 14, 1990.
