LOS ANGELES -- Taylor Swift now has two Grammys for album of the year. She won Monday night's top prize for her multi-hit, best-selling album "1989." She beat out Kendrick Lamar, Chris Stapleton, Alabama Shakes and the Weeknd.
But her win for "Album of the Year" brought her to the podium -- and she let loose with a rousing speech.
"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," she said. "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."
Could that have possibly been directed to Kanye West? The rapper recently proclaimed in a new song that he made Swift famous. In the song “Famous,” West sings, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b*tch famous,” a possible reference to his high-profile interruption of Swift on stage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
That rapper, who goes by Ye, had been conspicuously silent during the broadcast. One wonders how he'll respond in the morning.
