Taylor Swift, the first ever female artist to win ‘Album Of The Year’ award twice, impressed every person at the audience in the 58th Grammys with her epic take-down of Kanye West and she seems to have garnered another fan with her powerful words.
Actress Reese Witherspoon has joined a chorus of celebs congratulating the 26-year-old songstress after her smack-down speech, reports News.com.au.
The 39-year-old actress led the chorus tweeting, “Loved your amazing words! Keep encouraging all those young women to write their stories & sing their songs #Grammys.”
Earlier, Kanye West attracted criticism after he claimed in his song ‘Famous’ that he made Swift a star, referring to that moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when he hijacked her acceptance speech for ‘Best Female Video’ to argue that Beyonce deserved the award instead.
Australian model Ruby Rose also tweeted that West had crossed a line with the lyrics of his song ‘Famous’, “Too many lines crossed. If I put myself in the shoes of the women he has hurt recently.”
Journalist Maria Shriver, whose cousin, Conor Kennedy, Swift once dated, also joined in support the singer, “Congrats to @taylorswift13 for making history at #GRAMMYS, but it was her speech to young women and women of all ages that inspired me Bravo.”
