Taylor Swift fired back as she blatantly called out Kanye West during her acceptance speech. She won Album of the Year at the 2016 Grammy Awards for her album 1989 and had some things to say about Kanye’s lyrics. He recently put Swift in his new song “Famous,” where he raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”
“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 season 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.”
Kanye and Taylor were frenemies for many years after he infamously interrupted her speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, but the pair seemingly made up at the 2015 Grammys. Taylor even presented Kanye with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs. via eonline.com
