Taylor Swift Blasts Kanye West in Grammys 2016 Acceptance Speech (Video)

Taylor Swift slammed Kanye West without actually saying his name while accepting the award for Album of the Year at the 2016 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on Monday (February 15) in Los Angeles.

The 26-year-old singer picked up the award for her album 1989 and she threw a ton of shade at Kanye, who took credit for her success just the other day.

“And as the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to the young woman 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. 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,” Taylor said.

  • smmy33

    Now that’s how you take down a obnoxious asshole with class.

  • Malida

    Personally didn’t think she should have won over Kendrick Lamar but at least she stuck it to Kanye

  • Anastatia Bagans

    Says the person undermining a girl who has broken records with each album and is only 26 years old. Get off the internet.

  • HoppiSC

    Tayor and Kanye are equally annoying, just in different ways.

  • Angela Curry

    Who was that chick mean mugging her @ 1:50

  • Sable’s new boytoy

    No way was this record better than Kendrick and Wknd…wtf

  • Carmen Acosta

    Congratulations Taylor…..Good for you on your speech….

  • Sable’s new boytoy

    would have loved to be in between that taylor and selena scissor sandwich though

  • smmy33

    Album sold over 5 millions copies ( only person comparable is Adele the last decade in album sales) in U.S.
    1989 tour beat U2 and the RollingStone highest for grossing US tour.
    Album had 3 #1 one hits, most viewed vevo video Blank Space. 1. 5 billion.

    And this is her SECOND” album of the Year” win, voted by her peers.

    Public, peers… But you know better, 🌽y Asshole.

  • DAN JfkFlyGuy

    Congrats Taylor on your acceptance speech. You were so determined, so
    fierce, so direct and you got to do it in the World Stage, the entire world
    heard your message. What a platform. You have enough talent to last you
    a lifetime. You will always be #1, Cheers!!!!!!!!

  • ka ms

    Kanye will be the wannabe that time forgot. It’s already starting, GOOD RIDDANCE Kanye West you racist, confused ego-maniac!

  • Shivani Yadav

    Meghan Trainor’s win really surprised me.

  • Cz Gem

    kanye must be so mad, im curios for what he’s gonna do now!

  • James Madison

    ‘And some day they may even ask you for a loan’ would have been a real dis.

  • devvv

    Tori Kelly’s face at 1:50 says it all.

  • bicholaparada

    Its quite annoying when female pop stars came with the “to all the young girls out there” feminist $$hit.
    How many guys have influence Taylor´s career??? producers? song writers?? video directors?? she barely play the acoustic guitar.
    I hate when this bi$$hes talk about “taking credit”…and “work”?? what that hell??? now all “her career” is because of “her creativity and talent” GTFO Taylor….i bet 90% of your career is thanks to a lot of men who produce your records, play the instruments, promote your music etc…
    she talks like she was a real “full artist”….another product of men in the industry. Just like Iggy Azalea, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry…. theres men behind them making money…they need to stop the “to all the girl out there” crap… cause its FAKE.

  • Henrique Alves

    So she just forget that Norah Jones and Lauryn Hill already won 2 grammy for album of the year and she is not the first woman?

  • Carla

    kanye kardashian is a moron

  • Lisa

    They didn’t win 2 for their own albums though. Both of them just won one for an own album and a second one as a featured artist. So she is the first woman in history to win 2 Grammys for 2 of her own albums.

  • Conte435

    We know you do.
    You make a point of nasty comments every damn time a article on Taylor Swift is posted

    Why don’t get a life, instead of being envious of a total stranger’s.

  • Conte435

    Do you think Kanye would have reduced a man in their business with the accomplishments and status of Taylor Swift to nothing more then a sex object ( going still fuck her ) or have the balls to imply he made them famous ( not their talent , hardwork, accomplishments) no this little man did when he took over their acceptance speech at a awards show.

    She is the 1st women to win Grammy’ s Album of the year twice.

    It’s 2016 , the first man did it in 1966

  • Keith

    she just jealous…

  • Conte435

    What ???

  • Conte435

    That was Tory something or other..

    Crazy Days and Night site, just answered one of their blind items from September 2015

    About a new artist ( she was nominated for new artist) making out with a famous rapper .

    It was her and Jayz

  • HoppiSC

    She’s getting to a point in her career where she’s really starting to believe her own hype. She was much more tolerable when she was younger.

  • Lenny

    Given the degree to which controversy has eclipsed the impact of his music, be more accurate to say taylor swift made kanye famous

  • Lenny

    She lost to Meghan Trainor.
    That ugly bitch was not having a good 🌚

  • Joher

    I just loved how she dissed him without even saying his name. Take note Kanye.

  • http://eternalozzie.com/ eternalozzie

    good speech … Bieber and Swift winning Grammys is the modern death of music … they are production and marketing companies, not musicians

  • Arx

    And you make a point of bashing all famous black people whenever you can because…

    We all know why.

    Btw how many accounts do you use? Ive counted 2 separate accounts so far.

  • Conte435

    You’re full of horseshit, I don’t even post comments on people I don’t care for, irrespective of their race.

    Really should get a life or friends you nasty piece of work, you’re either posting nasty comments or accusing others having accounts or of racism.

    Why don’t you join a dating site or something or site for people who need friends desperately.
    nasty lonely people. com is just the site for you.

  • Arx

    In the meantime, I can recommend a good lubricant to help you remove your head out of Taylor’s ass. It’s not healthy having your head that far up the ass of someone so talentless and grossly overrated.
    Now in regards to you not posting negative comments I suggest you scroll down and read some of your negativity. I also recommend looking through some of your previous comments because I seem to remember reading some nasty comments from you… or maybe they were from your other account.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Envy comes from people’s ignorance of, or lack of belief in, their own gifts.

  • Conte435

    Are you naturally this stupid or does it take work.

    You can’t even point to a comment I’ve made of IN favour Taylor Swift besides praising or negative to some random celebrity for no reason.

    And certainly not psycho like you, who makes sure to post nasty comments on a certain celebrity everytime their names mentioned.

    You have your head up your own ass, so I’m not surprised of your lack of awareness and stupidity towards others.

    And since this is goodnight for me, remember there are sites for lonely sadsacks like you.

  • Salomon

    Kanye West is almost bankrupt with a debt of $53 millions. He will probably beg Taylor Swift to lend him some money. Taylor is successful and I listen to her hit songs with the music player. http://ow.ly/YnfoV

  • Shelby

    Good for her! Success is the best revenge.

  • laura

    I’m not particularly a fan of her music, but SHE’S A QUEEN!

  • FU Q

    Typical swift fan 😒 doesn’t matter how many albums she sells it doesn’t make her talented. Unfortunately for her that’s something money can’t buy.

  • Trillegal

    Lol what kind of comeback is this? It’s beyond irrelevant. Taylor hasn’t shown a bit of talent since “Teardrops on My Guitar”. She just follows the formula of garbage pop music. Some of you fans are just blindly falling prey to that formula and then lying to yourselves. Album sales don’t indicate talent. Neither does age.

  • Papaya Queen

    Now that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how you throw shade at somebody! Nothing but class! She took a disgusting Situation and turned it into something that makes not only her fans but pretty much anyone, especially Young women, feel inspired! <3
