Taylor Swift took home the 2016 Grammy award for Album of the Year and took aim at Kanye West’s recent controversial lyrics without ever saying his name. “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.”
She continued, “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’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”
Well said Taylor! She was already a rising star when Kanye West interrupted her 2009 MTV VMA win.
