Grammys: “1989” Gives Taylor Swift A Second Album Of The Year

For the second time in her career, Taylor Swift walks away with a Grammy Award for Album Of The Year.

The latest victory comes for Swift’s smash “1989.” The album, which had earlier won Best Pop Vocal Album, bested Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly,” Chris Stapleton’s “Traveller,” The Weeknd’s “Beauty Behind The Madness,” and Alabama Shakes’ “Sound & Color” for the overall AOTY prize.

Swift previously won the AOTY Grammy for her “Fearless.” She is the first female to win the award for two separate albums on which she was the lead artist.

In her acceptance speech, Swift expressed the importance of women knowing that they — and the people who loved them — are responsible for their accomplishments and fame. The comment clearly registered as a slight against Kanye West, who declares in a song lyric that he made Taylor Swift famous.
