Taylor Swift uses her acceptance speech to hit back at Kanye West

Taylor Swift used her acceptance speech for Album of the Year at Monday night’s Grammy Awards to hit back at Kanye West, whose track about having sex with Swift – along with his claim that he made the b**** famous – infuriated the 26-year-old pop superstar.

“I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who’ll try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” Swift said while she accepted the award for her album 1989.

“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’ll be the greatest feeling in the world.

Thank you for this moment.”
Taylor Swift
Swift and West became forever linked in pop culture when West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards – using the now-famous phrase “I’mma let you finish” – to say that Beyonce’s Single Ladies should have beaten Swift’s You Belong With Me for best female video.

“Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time! Of all time!” West told Swift, as well as a stunned crowd at New York’s Radio City Music Hall and millions watching on live television.

Swift looked shocked when she won Album of the Year on Monday, her third Grammy of the night, beating out Kendrick Lamar, Chris Stapleton, Alabama Shakes and the Weeknd.

Record of the Year went to Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, while Meghan Trainor won new Artiste of the Year.

Swift opened the show by performing Out of the Woods in a sequined jumpsuit, a departure from her red carpet attire, which had featured a tiny coral orange top. Host LL Cool J followed Swift’s performance with a powerful message about music. “With all that divides us today, our shared love of music unites us, all of us,” he intoned. The show featured several live performances, some of which were better received than others.
