Gotta love Taylor Swift!

The 26-year-old singer blasted Kanye West without mentioning 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.

She was on stage to pick up the award for her album 1989 and here’s part of what she said:

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.

Watch her speech below.

      Thanking God for the fact that I’ve changed a little, but not so much as not to tell you to shut your trap! If it was before, I would have told you to shut your bloody trap. Notice I didn’t add “bloody” to it this time hmmm? Eke is my hobby.

    I was under the impression that Kanye West’s lyrics had been run by her and she okayed it.

    On another note the Grammys are a joke. All these artists have 8 to 20 of them like it is water. Kanye has almost 20. Meanwhile Michael Jackson who sang for decades had 13. I guess the competition isn’t great anymore.
