Last night (February 15) at the 58th annual Grammy Awards pop star Taylor Swift, 26, became the first female artiste to win the Album of the Year category twice.

She won the prestigious award for her fifth album '1989'. When making her acceptance speech Taylor Swift took shots at Kanye West for his claim that he made her famous.

"As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, 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" said Taylor Swift referring to Kanye West's recent claims.


Taylor Swift added "But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going,' she added, 'you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment."

On 'Famous' featuring Rihanna, Kanye West raps "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn)/ I made that bitch famous." This line about Taylor Swift was first heard on Thursday, February 11, 2016 during Kanye West's preview of his new album 'The Life Of Pablo'.

The line is based off Kanye West's infamous moment in 2009 when he crashed Taylor Swift's VMA acceptance speech. This incident started the love-hate relationship between the two music stars.

The Taylor Swift line sparked controversy after 'Famous' was previewed which made Kanye West address the issue on his Twitter account.

According to Kanye West the line was Taylor Swift's idea and the word 'bitch' is an endearing word in Hip Hop.
