Taylor Swift Upsets Kendrick Lamar, '1989' Wins Album of the Year GRAMMY

Taylor Swift just won her second Album of the Year award at the GRAMMY Awards in a fairly shocking upset, as 1989 trumped front-runner Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, among other finalists.

Swift previously won Album of the Year for her sophomore album, Fearless. She noted onstage that she is now the first solo female artist to win two Album of the Year awards, and shared inspiring words to all aspiring female musicians out there in her acceptance speech.

Swift was joined onstage by the reclusive super-producer Max Martin, as well as collaborators Jack Antonoff and Ryan Tedder.

The pop superstar trumped Lamar as well as the Alabama Shakes, Chris Stapleton and The Weeknd. Lamar was nominated for Album of the Year in 2014 as well, for good kid, m.A.A.d city.
