West released his new album “The Life of Pablo” this week, and in the song “Famous,” West raps about having sex with Swift and making her famous.

West raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.” (RELATED: You Won’t Believe What Kanye West Says About Taylor Swift In His New Song)

But during her acceptance speech for album of the year at the Grammy Awards Monday night, the 26-year-old defended her hard work.

“I want to say to all the young women out there,” Swift said. “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’re going, you’ll look around and you’ll know it was you and the people that love you that put you there.”

“And that is the greatest feeling in the world.” (RELATED: People Are Losing Their Minds Over The Way Taylor Swift Wore Her Hair Tonight)
