Taylor Swift Wins Album of the Year, Sticks It to Kanye West

by at .

Taylor Swift did it, folks.

She got the last laugh in her ongoing feud with Kanye West in the most impressive of fashions:


The superstar reacted in shock upon hearing her name called, prior to hugging good friends such as Selena Gomez and going through an elaborately awesome handshake with Jack Antonoff:

But it was Taylor's acceptance speech that has folks talking today.

Because she took a pretty clear swipe at Kanye West while become the first woman to EVER 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 are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," Swift said at one point.

This was a clear reference to a line in Kanye's new song in which the rapper ponders having sex with Swift and says he made her famous by interrupting her speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

West also calls Taylor a "bitch" in that same track.

Added Swift to conclude her speech on Monday night:

"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 you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there.

"And that will be greatest feeling in the world."

Well said, Taylor,

And very well done.

Swift, meanwhile, also won won Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video for "Bad Blood."

So you just go ahead and keep Tweeting, Kanye. Swift will go ahead and keep winning.
