However, West took things a bit too far this year, when, on his new album, The Life of Pablo, he called out Swift with the notation: “I made that b**** famous.”
Swift’s friends and family reacted at the time; she herself did not. Until the night of the 2016 Grammys, that is. Upon scoring the evening’s highest honor – Album of the Year, for her set 1989 – Swift took the stage and delivered a stinging speech, with an only thinly veiled dig at Kanye.
“As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice,” she noted coolly, “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.”
