Attagirl! Taylor Swift took a well-deserved swipe at Kanye West yesterday as she received her ‘Album of the Year’ award for the second time. There’s been a lot of talk about Kanye making a dig at the singer on his new album… And I think Taylor used her final moment on stage at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards to subtly address the drama. In his new song “Famous”, Kanye rapped: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b***h famous.
In her statement, Taylor said:
“I want to thank fans for the last 10 years and the Recording Academy for giving us this unbelievable honor. I want to thank all of my collaborators that you see on this stage. Mostly, I want to thank my co-executive producer Max Martin who has deserved to be up here for 25 years,” she began.
“And as the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.
“But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment.”
