She didn't even have to name-drop.

Taylor Swift has finally addressed the "misogynist lyric" Kanye wrote about her in Famous, a track on his latest album The Life of Pablo.

“For all my Southside n*** that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous / God damn / I made that b*** famous,” he raps on the track.

Years later, the pair finally buried the hatchet and were pictured together at last year's Grammys. This was, of course, before Kanye dropped the recent album.

Although he defended the lyric, saying it had been Taylor's idea in the first place, the pop star kept mum.
Until now. "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," said Taylor while accepting the coveted Album of the Year award.

"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."
