Oh snap! Taylor Swift’s top-selling ‘1989’ won the award for Album of the Year at the 2016 Grammys on Feb. 15, and while on stage, T-Swizzle took the opportunity to diss Kanye West. Find out all the details here!
Taylor Swift won a lot of awards at the 2016 Grammys on Monday, Feb. 15, but we have a feeling her win for Album Of The Year is the one she’s most proud of. And it was also the award she shoved in Kanye West‘s face, when she finally fired back at him after dissing her in his new song, “Famous.”
After Taylor brought the co-executive producer of 1989, Max Martin, on stage with her, she made sure to point out that she’s the first female to ever win Album Of The Year twice at the Grammys! And then, she finally reacted to Kanye West’s diss in his new song “Famous” — in which he sang “I made that b**** famous” — she used her spotlight her fans to never let anyone take credit for their achievements. “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,” Taylor said.
“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 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,” Tay added.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, in Kanye’s song “Famous,” he raps that he’s responsible for her success. Clearly, Taylor got the last laugh because the Grammys tweeted the following:

And we were right, when we originally reported that Taylor would retaliate at the Grammy Awards! “Taylor has decided that should she win a Grammy tonight, especially if her song ‘Bad Blood’ wins, she is going to try to take the opportunity to say something uplifting about women,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com before the show. “Taylor considers herself a bit of a feminist and she wants to be a force for good and not feed into Kanye’s negativity.” However, Kanye’s already planning his “revenge” for Taylor’s remarks!
The other nominees for Album of the Year included Alabama Shakes for Sound & Color, Kendrick Lamar for To Pimp A Butterfly, Chris Stapleton for Traveller, and The Weeknd for Beauty Behind The Madness.
