Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Taylor Swift might not have publicly commented on Kanye West’s derogatory lyrics about him having sex with her as he made her famous but she seemingly called the rapper out in her Grammys acceptance speech.
Swift was accepting her award for winning Album of the Year for “1989,” which was released last year. She said in her speech that she wanted to tell to all the young women that there will be people who will try and undercut their success and take credit for their accomplishment or fame.
She added, “…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 you will know that it was you and the people who love who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you.”
Fans were quick to speculate that the “Shake It Off” singer was referring to West’s newly released song “Famous” in which he said, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b** ch famous.”
This is also a special night for Swift as she is the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys for the second time. She also won the awards for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video for her single “Bad Blood.”
Despite the drama and the backlash regarding West’s song about Swift, the rapper said in a statement that he called up the “Out of the Woods” singer and told her about his intentions of releasing the song and claimed that she gave him the permission to do so. However, representatives for Swift said that West called the singer to ask if he could release the song from her Twitter account, which she declined, and that she also warned West that his sexist and derogatory lyrics could cause a buzz.
West is yet to comment on the speech of Swift. He did not attend this year’s Grammys .
