As many of you know, Kanye West recently bragged on his new album that he made Taylor Swift “famous” (along with some other vulgar expletives we’ll leave out).
But instead of stooping low, T-Swift waited for her “Album of the Year” Grammy win last night to make her classy play. Swift offered an empowering message to young girls through the speech, but the dual-message directed at Kanye West was anything but subtle. She said:
“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 that 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. Someday when you get where you’re going, 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.”
Taylor’s army of fans went wild, and even celebs started jumping on board to support the singer. Reese Witherspoon led the pack with this Tweet last night:

I love watching these ladies use positivity to fight their battles rather than retaliating with negative comments. Snide remarks are easy to come by, but taking the higher road is always more rewarding.
Other celebs, from Maria Shriver to Andy Cohen, shouted their support for the gesture with their own tweets as well.
We’re all bound to be ridiculed, but it’s how we handle it that makes us who we are!
