Looks like singer Taylor Swift, who clinched three trophies at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards on Monday, took a dig at rapper Kanye West. Swift, who won in categories like Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video, also sent out a message to young women singers in the industry.

“As the first woman to win Album of the Year twice, 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 you fame,” Swift said, while accepting the award for Album of the Year for 1989 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
