Taylor Swift Shuts Kanye Down at The Grammys

Taylor Swift didn’t win Album of the Year for nothing, and she’s making that message loud and clear. With seven Grammy nominations and two wins, the pop star has finally weighed in on the “Famous” controversy. Taking the stage to accept her award for Album of the Year, Taylor made a pretty direct jab at Kanye, whose misogynistic lyrics claim he and Taylor “might still have sex” and that he “made that bitch famous.”

While not all celebrity feuds go down well, Taylor took this moment and used her platform for good. “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’re going you’ll 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,” she said, adding, “Thank you for this moment.”
