Taylor Swift Made Chrissy Teigen Very Uncomfortable With Her Grammys’ Speech

The only thing people love more than Kanye West and Taylor Swift’s very public feud is talking about it. No one loves priming his guests for this kind of gossiping than Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen. Following the release of West’s new song, “Famous,” off his new album The Life of Pablo where he takes credit for Swift’s success, the latest punch in this grudge match has come from Swift live on stage at this year’s Grammy Awards:

I want to say to all the young women out there—there are going to be people along the way who are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday 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 greatest feeling in the world.

Referencing this not so sly dig during her Record of the Year acceptance speech, model, author, television host and expectant mother Chrissy Teigen weighed in with her intimate take of the situation. Teigen and husband John Legend are friends with both West and his wife Kim Kardashian, and also with the other side in Swift. Teigen shares:

It’s tough when you’re put in the middle like that. I didn’t get to see it live, but I don’t know. It’s so awkward. It’s an uncomfortable moment. It’s weird. John and I were very uncomfortable by it.

I imagine if you know these people as more than figures of pop culture, publicity stunts always illicit this kind of discomfort. To the untrained ear, it sounds like just another one of Taylor Swift’s disingenuous girl power speeches, but she’s the one that participates in her own undercut by engaging with West. He’s a human publicity stunt. It’s why we love him, but we know it’s not real. Swift, who I now suspect of being a lizard person in a human suit, halfheartedly walks through the same kind of PR road map, fumbling the directions only to look as ridiculous and insincere as Hillary Clinton trying to nae nae.

At least she didn’t dab off the stage.
