Swift Slammed For Snubbing Music Icon
Swift had a busy night at the star-studded ceremony. She collected her fourth Album of the Year Grammy for Midnight. But her win was overshadowed by how she accepted the award. Music icon Celine Dion presented Swift with the award. And amid her excitement about the win she didn’t acknowledge Dion but instead just grabbed the trophy from her as she was presenting it.
The exchange caused an uproar on social media.
“Not acknowledging Celine’s legendary status was disrespectful, especially with her declining health. Celine Dion’s Grammys presence is monumental making Taylor’s action regrettable,” one user said.
“Taylor Swift ignoring very sick legend Celine Dion during the Grammys while accepting Album of the Year. Wow. Classless personified,” another user said.
“Taylor Swift just took the album of the year trophy from Celine Dion without batting an eye and/or acknowledging that a legendary 🐐 was handing her the award. So cringey for my soul,” another user added.
Killer Mike Breaks Silence on Grammys Arrest
The 2024 Grammys had a lot of controversial moments. It was a night of highs and lows for rap star Killer Mike. He took home his first award in 2024 and completed a clean sweep of every award he was nominated for. And shortly after the Los Angeles Police Department had him in handcuffs.
TMZ reported that he was being detained because of an altercation that happened before the event. But Killer Mike says that nothing happened.
“Ain’t nothing had happened, man,” Killer Mike said. “But we winners. That’s it. We hit a speed bump and then we hit back to the party.”
