Taylor Swift took home Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards for 1989, and she wasted no time in addressing the elephant in the room: her beef with Kanye West. Speaking directly to all the women in the audience, she implored them to not let the haters get to them. "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," she said. "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'll look around and know that it was you."

The comments follow West saying he "made that bitch famous," in reference to Swift on his song "Famous" off his recent album The Life of Pablo. Watch Swift's speech in the video above, and check out all the night's winners here.
