Pop star Taylor Swift was having a great night at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. She opened the show with a crowd pleasing performance of her song, “Out of the Woods” from her album 1989 and later snagged the award for Album of the Year. But it was Taylor’s award speech for Album of the Year that has everyone buzzing.
Taylor has not been able to live down the infamous MTV Video award moment where a Hennessy filled Kanye West stormed the stage to interrupt Taylor’s speech to announce that it was Beyonce that had the best video of all time *kanye shrug*. That moment was seven years ago and Kanye and Taylor have since become friends, with Taylor even presenting Kanye with MTV’s Video Vanguard award in 2015.
Recently, Kanye must have opened up old wounds for Taylor when he raps in his song “Famous”,“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, Why? I made that b**** famous”. The song is off of Kanye’s new album The Life of Pablo, and even though Ye tweeted that he had talked to Taylor about the line and she was fine with it, her award speech does not imply the same thing. In her award speech Taylor says:
“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 … 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.”
