Looks like Taylor is ready to fight back against people 'taking credit' for her 'fame'...

Taylor Swift took the opportunity to respond to Kanye West over THAT spat at the Grammys last night – and boy did she do it in style.

The singer, 26, made a massive dig at Kanye in a highly emotional acceptance speech when she collected the prize for Album of the Year, days after he released the track Famous containing the shocking lyrics: ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that bitch famous.’

A defiant Taylor told the audience: ’As the first women 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 side track you, someday when you get to where you’re going; you’ll look around and you’ll know that it was you and the people who love you that put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.

‘Thank you for this moment.’
