Remember when Taylor Swift made headlines in February of last year by shading Kanye West during her Album of the Year acceptance speech? Well, her controversial time at the podium is the inspiration behind a brand-new Grammy TV spot for the upcoming ceremony.
In a new advertisement, which was released on Tuesday (January 31), viewers see a string of young women reciting the pop titan's 1989 speech and it's an inspiring minute of womanhood. "I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," the montage of young girls repeat. "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 will look around and you will know — it was you, and the people who love you, who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world."
Swift has been noticeably absent from the scene apart from a tweet in honor of this month's Women's March, but the chart-topper is expected to return to the stage once again for the AT&T DirecTV pre–Super Bowl concert the night before the big football showdown on Saturday in Houston, Texas.
