Lorde Becomes First Female Artist to Win MTV VMA for Best Rock Video
Lorde collected the MTV Video Music Award for Best Rock Video last night (August 24), becoming the first female artist ever to win in the category, NME reports.

Yes, we are not mistaken, Lorde takes the prize for Best ROCK Video.

The 17-year-old scooped the gong for "Royals" at the Los Angeles award ceremony, beating out Arctic Monkeys, the Black Keys, Linkin Park and Imagine Dragons in the process.

"Is there like a specific place I'm supposed to be looking?" the New Zealander asked as she tried to find the right camera during her acceptance speech. "This is super crazy and I'm super grateful."

Lorde – who had earlier appeared on stage to introduce Taylor Swift – was also nominated for Best Female Video, but lost out to Katy Perry's "Dark Horse."

There has surely been some internet backlash to her VMA win as viewers took to Twitter to question whether "Royals" can be considered a rock song.

What's next, the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance goes to One Direction?
