Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift won album of the year for 1989 at last night’s Grammy Awards and used her acceptance speech to not-so-subtly slam Kanye West after he name-dropped her in the track “Famous.“ “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 said. “You just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you.“ Taylor also won the awards for best pop vocal album and music video for “Bad Blood.“ Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar was the night’s biggest winner, taking five honors, including best rap album for To Pimp a Butterfly. Other highlights included Meghan Trainor winning best new artist and Chris Stapleton nabbing best country album for Traveller.
