Hollywood A-listers are throwing their support behind Taylor Swift after her powerful acceptance speech at Monday night's GRAMMY Awards.

The 26-year-old singer's 1989won the coveted Album of the Year award, and when Swift took the stage, she definitely had a message in mind. Calvin Harris' girlfriend appeared to be responding to Kanye West calling her a "b**ch" in his new song, "Famous," and crediting himself for her rise to fame.

"And 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 try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments and your fame," she said. "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."
