Oh, how the tables have turned!

Taylor Swift won Album of the Year tonight at the 2016 Grammy Awards for 1989, and after doing some excited jumps alongside bestie Selena Gomez and a secret handshake with Jack Antonoff, the singer took the stage and delivered a fiery speech that gave chills to anybody who heard it.

Not only did it scream girl power, but she blatantly called out Kanye West, who recently put Swift in his new song "Famous," where he raps, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous."

Well, Taylor had something to say about all that...

"I want to thank fans for the last 10 years and the Recording Academy for giving us this unbelievable honor. I want to thank all of my collaborators that you season this stage, mostly I want to thank my co-executive producer Max Martin who has deserved to be up here for 25 years," she began.

"And 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. 

"But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going, you will 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. Thank you for this moment."

Ooooooh snap!

Kanye and Taylor were frenemies for many years after he infamously interrupted her speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, but the pair seemingly made up at the 2015 Grammys. Taylor even presented Kanye with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs.

Although Yeezy claimed it was all in good fun and that Swift was in on the whole thing, we're starting to wonder if that's really the case. Especially since Taylor's spokesperson strongly denies that she knew about the actual lyric.

And, you know, this epic speech.
