Taylor Swift had no idea what the 2024 Grammys held for her. She had four impressive nominations, and she won two. Resultedly, her honored wins made history, and we all know that whatever Taylor touches turns into gold. Not everyone has that luck, but it's a wonderful phenomenon when it does happen.
To top it off, Taylor wore a custom white gown by Schiaparelli and black gloves for the event, accentuating her blonde features and red lips.
As mentioned, Taylor won two of the four Grammy nominations, including Album of The Year for "Midnights" and Best Pop Vocal Album of the same name. This is Taylor's fourth Album of the Year win for the former, making her the first-ever artist to hold the honor. Her previous three wins were "Fearless," Folklore," and "1989," each one delivering acclaimed anthems and synthetics.
Taylor professed her love for her music team and the industry in her emotionally-packed acceptance speech. She additionally expressed that performing music is what she loves doing and desires to keep doing it.
"Guys, you've got to come closer. I feel really alone. I feel so alone. Oh, my God. I [want to] say that I get to work with one of my best friends, who is not only one of my best friends, but also a once-in-a-generation producer. That's Jack Antonoff. I'm so lucky. Our engineer, Lauren Sisk. I [want to] say "thank you" to Serban Ghenea, Sam Dew, [and] Sounwave."
In the next part of her speech, Taylor addresses her friendship with another famous artist, Lana Del Rey, and the upcoming Eras Tour in Japan.
"Lana Del Rey, who is hiding, but I think so many female artists would not be where they are and not have the inspiration they have if it weren't' for the work she's done. I think she's a legacy artist, a legend in her prime right now. I'm so lucky to know you and to be your friend. I would love to tell you that this is the best moment of my life, but I feel this happy when I finish a song or when I crack the code to a bridge that I love. Or when I'm shortlisting a music video, or when I'm rehearsing with my dancers, or [with] my band, or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show."
And finally, Taylor thanks her fans for her craft and the Grammys.
"For me, the award is the work. All I want to do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much, [and] it makes me so happy. It makes me unbelievably blown away that it makes people happy who voted for this award, too. All I want to do is keep doing this. So thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do what I love so much. Mind blown. Thank you so much!"
