Shade it like Taylor...
Here is a guide to shading like Taylor Swift.
1. When the 'enemy' says or does something, DO NOT REACT.
Taylor famously tweeted at Nicki when she thought Nicki Minaj was taking shots at her last year and that backfired so now when Kanye's song and diss came up this year, our girl didn't say a thing.
Remember, the whole world is refreshing your page to see what you will say or do so KEEP YOUR COOL.
Instead of wasting your energy on bad blood, channel it into you. Rise, win, and succeed. Afterall, you know what they say about success right?
Congrats to Taylor on her grammy wins last night. She is now the only woman to have won a grammy for 'Best Album', twice.
While we may not all win grammys in Versace, we can still celebrate our successes and shade!
3. Empower and Shade the beep off!
Taylor Swift's acceptance at the Grammys was on the face of it, an encouragement for women and an admonishment of the 'male dominated' system.
But if you of course know the background to it, with Kanye insisting he made Taylor famous on his song, "Famous", then you see what she is really saying.
Taylor in one speech, told the Grammys and the Music industry we need more diversity for women, boasted about being the only woman to have won Best Album twice, encouraged women and girls, AND told Kanye to sit down.
Queen T anyone?
Now you've learnt how to shade it like Taylor, go ye forth and enjoy!!!
Excerpt from Taylor's speech:
"As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I wanna 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, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you’ll know that it was you and the people who love you that put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world,”
