Taylor Swift Called Out Kanye from the Grammys Stage

A glorious subtweet, IRL.

Taylor Swift isn't here for you Kanye. After he dissed her in a song by saying that he "made her famous (opens in new tab)" (among other not so niceties), Swift fired back from the Grammys stage after winning Album of the Year for 1989—but in a classy, most Taylor-like way.

"I just 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—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."

Remember when Kanye interrupted Taylor's Grammys speech in 2009? What a throwback. Taylor: 2, Kanye: 0.
