After scoring three gilded gramophones at the Grammy Awards Monday, Taylor Swift got the finger.
The pop star was named Best International Solo Artist of the Year at the NME and was awarded a trophy that takes the shape of a middle finger. Swift was unable to accept the accolade in person, so she posted a video of herself giving an acceptance speech in which she describes her rollercoaster reaction to the "cheeky" award.
"When you first open up the box, it feels a little aggressive. And then you get used to it, you put it on the shelf. You know what? I kind of like it," Swift said. "First impressions were a little weird here, but now I understand that this is actually like a strange compliment. You’re like being cheeky about it."
Prior to her NME win, Swift became the first-ever woman to win two Grammys for Album of the Year. She also walked away with the award for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video.
