LOS ANGELES – Shake it off she did. Her haters that is.
Singer Taylor Swift won a Grammy for Album of the Year for the second year in row, this time for “1983” album. After thanking her team in her acceptance speech, she went on deliver a powerful subtle message, seemingly directed at Kanye West.
“As the first woman to win Album of the Year twice I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try 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 some day when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and see that it was you and the people who love you who put you there,” Swift said. “And that will be the biggest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment.”
Even though she didn’t mention West by name, her stinging words come days after the rapper said he made Swift “famous” on his new album “Life of Pablo.”
While West had yet to respond, his erratic behavior on Twitter in recent days suggests his own response will come soon.
In addition to Album of the Year, Swift nabbed Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video for “Bad Blood.”
