Taylor Swift won the big prize at the Grammys -- Album of the Year for 1989 -- and then, she won even bigger.

For most of the night, all people heard from Tay Tay was the opening number, "Out of the Woods," and her cheering when Ed Sheeran won Song of the Year.

But then her win for album of the year brought her to the stage. And on that stage was a microphone.

Taylor Swift laid it down with a rousing speech.

"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 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 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."

To whom could that speech possibly have been directed??

Social media immediately seized on a certain furiously tweeting rapper who had proclaimed, "I made that b*tch famous."

That rapper, who goes by Ye, had been conspicuously silent during the broadcast. One wonders how he'll respond in the morning.
