While her presence gave way to a set of viral moments, one of them was Swift seemingly dragging Lana Del Rey on stage. Disappointed fans spoke out about Swift’s ‘rude’ gesture. Here’s how fans reacted to the viral moment.
Taylor Swift Slammed For ‘Disrespecting’ Lana Del Rey
Taylor Swift created history by being the only artist in history to win ‘Album Of The Year’ four times. Taking two awards home for her album ‘Midnights‘, she won the award against artists like SZA, Olivia Rodrigo and Lana Del Rey.
Though critically acclaimed and one of the biggest singers of the current era, it’s quite surprising that Lana has never won a Grammy despite putting out brilliant music with every album she creates.
Lana Del Rey, an artist who reshaped Pop and Alt Music In 2012 and paved a new way for artists she has simultaneously built her own sound witch each album again and again She is also one of our greatest Song Writers of all time and this grammy snub proves people downplaying alt pic.twitter.com/AxPEtuYytO— #1nfrstan (@1nfrstan) February 5, 2024
What fans found worse was Taylor’s reaction to Lana’s loss. Swift and Lana were seated together for the show, and the former celebrated her win for ‘Midnights‘ with the latter, hugging it out and then dragging her to the stage despite Lana’s protests. While on stage, Lana stood way behind in the dark as Swift made her acceptance speech.
Many fans pointed this out as disrespectful for Taylor to drag Lana on stage for an award she lost.
i'm sorry but taylor is so evil for not only dragging lana on stage with her but also making this pitiful speech about lana when she's the one holding a grammy in her hand… y'all don't see how much of a mean girl moment this is? pic.twitter.com/VCQz3qoETm— ฅ/ᐠ. ̫.ᐟ\ฅ (@ok__matt) February 5, 2024
taylor swift is disgusting for forcing lana on stage and rubbing that grammy in her face knowing she was also nominated my heart aches and i can’t believe she ever considered this woman a friend. pic.twitter.com/PLivTtayM5— hey (@loveheqrts) February 5, 2024
Swift also included Lana’s name in the acceptance speech, acknowledging her musical prowess and for her work on the album. “Lana Del Rey, who is hiding, but I think so many female artists would not be where they are and would not have the inspiration they have if it weren’t for the work that she’s done” Swift said, adding, “I think she’s a legacy artist, a legend in her prime right now. I’m so lucky to know you and to be your friend.”
While both artists have continued to be big fans of each other, the same cannot be said for their fans who have continued to partake in fan wars.

Taylor Ignores Celine Dion On Grammys Stage
In a surprising turn of events, Celine Dion showed up at the Grammys and fans were thrilled to see her healthy and looking absolutely stunning. The chanteuse got up on stage to present the prestigious Album Of The Year award- which went to Taylor Swift for her album ‘Midnights‘.
As Swift got on stage, she also took Lana Del Rey and Jack Antonoff with her as she proceeded to celebrate the win. But what caught fans aback was how the ‘Anti-Hero‘ singer completely ignored Celine’s presence and just took the award from her and started on her thank you speech.

Many also pointed out that despite battling stiff person syndrome, Celine showed up and gave the award to Taylor- which she should have acknowledged.

Celine who?— Cathlina Rivas King 🇺🇸 (@AmeraucanaLover) February 5, 2024
I don’t dislike Taylor Swift like some people do but how she treated Celine Dion is shameful and I watched her face when they were announcing the nominees and Taylor knew that was Celine
That was some cringeworthy stuff for sure and poor Celine has had to cancel her… pic.twitter.com/4qaXoY6d9G
Fans were outraged and slammed Swift for her ‘disrespect’. Later on, however, media outlets published pictures of both the artists smiling and hugging it out implying that there’s no beef.
None of the artists have spoken on the matter as of now.
