This came after Kanye West, recently put Swift in his new song “Famous,” where he said, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Taylor said:

“I want to thank fans for the last 10 years and the Recording Academy for giving us this unbelievable honor. I want to thank all of my collaborators that you season this stage, mostly I want to thank my co-executive producer Max Martin who has deserved to be up
here for 25 years,” she began. ….
“And 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. “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, 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.”

Watch this space for Kanye’s response, lol.

Still though, the triple threat is preparing to make 2016 her best year yet. “She still has some baggage from Justin, she still isn’t at the place she’d like to be in her acting career and she wants to make the change for the better and would like to make 2016 her year,” the source told HollywoodLife.com 

So, unsurprisingly, Selena is comparing the epic year that she has planned for herself to the always fabulous T.Swift. “She has told friends that the start of next year is her Taylor Swift year.

Taylor Swift And Kanye West Made Peace For Jay Z’s Sake

“I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with [West] until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me, and he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me—so it was the same issue, and we both reached the same place at the same time,” Swift says. “I became friends with Jay Z, and I think it was important, for Jay Z, for Kanye and I to get along. …And then Kanye and I both reached a place where he would say really nice things about my music and what I’ve accomplished, and I could ask him how his kid’s doing.”

Grammy Winner Insures Legs For $40 Million.

Taylor Swift wants to make sure her legs are safe in case of an accident. So she has reportedly insured both of them for a whopping $40 million.

According to The National Enquirer, Taylor’s team has allegedly looked into insuring the songwriter’s legs just in case something bad happened during one of her routines.

It seems like a ludicrous sum, but if something was to happen to her legs, Swift wouldn’t be able to give her signature stage performances. Her $200 million career would be in big trouble,” a source told the gossip weekly.

Swift was reportedly also shocked by the amount her legs went for. She thought her legs might be worth only a million dollars.

The source revealed to the site, “But $40 million shocked her. She’s even a little embarrassed about it.”

Swift’s team is reportedly completing the insurance paperwork in preparation for her world tour, kicking off in May.

Taylor Swift Looking Ravishing In Cavalli’s Atelier.

Well-played Taylor Swift.

The pop starlet has had a very glamorous couple of days and we’ve loved her high-octane red carpet looks that are a world away from her usual day-to-day style. Last night at the Elle Style Awards she wore a fantastic green gown by Julien Macdonald and tonight she’s rocking custom made Roberto Cavalli.

What a dress! From the front it may not look that special but turn around and there’s drama to spare going on at the back. We are crushing hard on this dragon embellishment. It curves across her back and swirls at her waist ending at the floor sweeping train. Stunning!
