Taylor Swift kept quiet when Kanye West not so politely name-dropped her in a new song on his recently released The Life Of Pablo, but the pop titan got her revenge when she called out the rapper during her Album of the Year acceptance speech on Monday night's Grammy Awards (February 15).
Winning the coveted title for her game-changing 1989 LP, Swift took to the podium with many of her album collaborators, but she also had a very particular message to share. Now, there wasn't any Yeezy name dropping, but it's easy to put two and two together, especially since the rapper took credit for her fame on last week's track.
"And as the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," she said.
Taylor went on to tell the young women out there they they'll get to where they want to go as long as they "just focus on the work" and don't let those people sidetrack you. "You will look around and you will know it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world," she concluded.
We have one word for Taylor Swift right now: Badass.
