One of the biggest winners coming out of the 2016 Grammy Awards is Taylor Swift. Rapper Kendrick Lamar also fared well with almost half a dozen gongs. Swift took the night’s top prizes when 1989 triumphed in both the Album of the Year category and Best Pop Vocal Album, too.
However, the night’s big moment came when she made obvious reference to her detractors, amongst them likely to be Kanye West, while accepting the Album of the Year award, “As the first woman to win Album of the Year twice, I want to say to all the young women 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”.
“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’ll look around and know it’s you and the people who love you who put you there”.
