Madonna Wins Three Billboard Music Awards; Taylor Swift Takes Eight

One of the favorite new pastimes in music fandom is bashing Taylor Swift. Whether it be over her parade of boyfriends, her constantly amazed look or her break up songs, just about everybody has some sort of opinion.

Evidently it hasn't clouded the music buying public's choices as Swift took home eight trophies at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards including Top Artist and Top Billboard 200 Album for Red.

Other big winners were Gotye who won Top Hot 100 Song, Radio Song, Streaming Song and Rock Song for Somebody That I Used to Know and Rihanna who won for Radio Song Artist, R&B Artist, R&B Album (Unapologetic) and R&B Song (Diamonds).

The only veteran to win during the night was Madonna who took home Top Touring Artist, Dance Artist and Dance Album for MDNA.

Prince received the Icon Award and played a medley of Let's Go Crazy, Edgar Winter's Frankenstein and Fix Ur Life Up.

Justin Bieber won the Milestone Award which is voted by the fans. He also took Male Artist and Social Artist.
