Did Taylor Swift use her Grammy acceptance speech to respond to Kanye West’s “Famous” line about her?
Though West says he cleared the line “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that [expletive] famous” from his new song “Famous” with Swift first, her fiery acceptance speech Monday night for album of the year suggests otherwise.
“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 try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” she said, collecting her third Grammy of the night. “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 know it was you — and the people who love you — who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment.”
Aside from her speech, Swift has not commented on West’s “Famous” song from his new “The Life of Pablo” album.
