Kanye West, you’ve been served.

Taylor Swift took home the coveted award for album of the year at Monday night’s Grammys. And while, yes, the world was satisfied that the singer’s collection of many singles was recognized at the awards ceremony, the most memorable moment of Swift’s acceptance speech came when she finally addressed the rapper’s “Famous” jab.

“I want to say to all the young women out there, 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, some day when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

Mic drop.

So, what does Twitter have to say about Swift’s passionate speech that not only took on West’s allegations that he was the reason the “Out of the Woods” singer is famous, but also aimed to empower young women everywhere? Take a look.
