Taylor Swift wins Album of the Year and sub-tweets Kanye West
While many were hoping Kendrick Lamar's epic To Pimp a Butterfly would take home the Best Album of the Year trophy, Taylor Swift snatched it away from the Compton rapper for 1989, her '80s influenced pop record. Instead of pulling a Macklemore and apologizing to Lamar, she used her speech to fire a couple discreet disses in Kanye West's direction.
"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 will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," she said from the stage. "But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world."
