Taylor Swift Accused of Disrespecting Celine Dion Onstage While Accepting Grammy Award

Published on

Although it was a fleeting encounter between two individuals who are friends, I am aware of one individual who has met Taylor Swift. According to that individual, she was beyond pleasant.

Some individuals did not perceive that as the version of Swift at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

With the Grammy for Album of the Year, “Midnights,” Swift became the first performer in history to be awarded the prestigious award four times. Some were disappointed by the 34-year-old’s apparent impoliteness toward music icon Celine Dion, who unexpectedly appeared to present the award despite her own personal struggle with stiff person syndrome.

Since disclosing her condition as a rare neurological disorder in December 2022, Dion has been notably absent from public appearances.

Swift “shared warm embraces with her collaborators Jack Antonoff and Lana Del Rey before snatching her trophy out of the hands of the music legend,” Page Six reported.

Video appeared to show Dion saying “Congratulations” as she passed the award to Swift, but Swift didn’t seem to respond.

In her defense, Swift seemed very surprised and a bit overwhelmed by her win, and, as Page Six pointed out in a separate article, “ignored” boyfriend Travis Kelce in her acceptance speech as well. (Of course, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end wasn’t standing two feet in front of her, as his team is already in Las Vegas preparing for next week’s Super Bowl.)

“It should be [also] noted that Swift, 34, enthusiastically sang along to Dion’s hit ‘The Power of Love’ when the Canadian superstar, 55, made her way onto the stage for her surprise showing at the ceremony,” Page Six wrote, apparently in more defense of Swift.

There were also pictures of the two recording artists taken “moments later” backstage that had the effect of “immediately shutting down any speculation about bad blood,” the outlet noted.

Although those photographs may have dispelled that rumor (for the record, The Western Journal has not observed any rumors of “bad blood,” only Swift’s impoliteness), they did not dispel the social media criticisms regarding Swift’s conduct.

“Taylor Swift just took the album of the year trophy from Celine Dion without batting an eye and/or acknowledging that a legendary [GOAT] was handing her the award,” X user “easy e” wrote. “So cringey for my soul.”

User “Mike T” agreed, but with significantly more drama.

“Taylor Swift will never EVER live down ignoring Céline Dion at the Grammys,” he wrote.
