Taylor Swift Makes Grammys History, Becomes First Woman To Win Album Of The Year Three Times Throughout Her Career
She's done it again! Taylor Swift made Grammys history on Sunday, March 14, by becoming the first woman to win Album of the Year three times in her longstanding career.
The 31-year-old songstress took home Album of the Year for her surprise 2020 record folklore, which dropped in July. She previously won the coveted trophy for her 2008 album, Fearless, and her 2014 album, 1989.
During her speech, the blonde beauty couldn't help but give her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, who co-wrote "Exile" and "Betty" with her on the album.
"Joe is the first person that I play every single song that I write, and I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine," she said.
“I want to thank — I want to thank James, Inez and Betty and their parents [Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds] who are the second and third people that I play every new song that I write but mostly, we just want to thank the fans. You guys met us in this imaginary world that we created, and we can’t tell you how honored we are forever by this," she continued. "Thank you so much, and thank you to the Recording Academy. We will never forget that you did this for us. Thank you so much.”
