Taylor Swift shows off broken MTV award

TAYLOR Swift was delighted to finally receive her MTV Video Music Award - but then discovered it was broken.

The 'Red' hitmaker won an iconic Moonman statue for Best Female Video - which she received for 'I Knew You Were Trouble' - at the ceremony last August but left it behind at the Barclays Center in New York, so was thrilled to be reunited with it earlier this week.

However, as she showed off the trophy to her fans via an Instagram video, she noticed the silver figurine's flag had been dislodged.

In the video, Taylor is seen brandishing a box and says: "What's this that came in the mail? Ooooh! Check it out."

However, as she goes to move the Moonman, she fumbles with his flag and asks: "Did I break him? Oh, it's fine."

It is unclear why Taylor left the trophy behind at the ceremony, but despite its fault she is delighted to finally have it in her possession.
