Taylor Swift's Grammy acceptance speech throws shade at Kanye West
Swift insists the rap star wasn't the one who made her famous
Taylor Swift's album of the year acceptance speech at the 2016 Grammys had a message of empowerment for young women.
"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."
She went on to say that if they just focus on the work they're doing, "Someday when you get where you're going, you'll look around and you'll know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there."
It's an uplifting message, sure, but many are also interpreting Swift's words as shade thrown at her perennial nemesis, Kanye West.
The two got in a new beef last week over one of the lyrics on his new album, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous."
The lyric is of course referencing the time that West interrupted Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs.
Some Twitter users seemed amazed that the now seven-year-old quarrel was still ongoing
I wish I could go back to 2009 and tell everyone, you know that Kanye and Taylor Swift thing you're all talking about? IT'S STILL HAPPENING—@ShadowTodd
One person referenced Kanye's pleas to Mark Zuckerberg to invest in his business ideas

Some were staunchly on Team Swift
To people calling <a href="https://twitter.com/taylorswift13">@taylorswift13</a> petty - she has as much a right to defend herself/her career as much as Kanye does to say what he says.—@NYDoorman
And with that <a href="https://twitter.com/taylorswift13">@taylorswift13</a> is like ... BYEEEE Kanye... <a href="https://t.co/p1Sgl1nUwt">pic.twitter.com/p1Sgl1nUwt</a>—@GoodMegan

Others, not so much
If I want Taylor Swift to go away, does that mean I have to want Kanye West to go away too?—@Combat_Jack
Hey <a href="https://twitter.com/taylorswift13">@taylorswift13</a> Kanye made you famous and he can make you un-famous if he wants—@rileybarker12
Taylor Swift should stop embarrassing herself. Kanye was right. Your career did get a boost when he went up on stage and told the truth—@Phresh_Prince95
