“I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who will 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 the greatest feeling in the world. Thank you for this moment."

After her swipe at West, the rapper tweeted:

Her remark comes after West premiered his new album, The Life of Pablo, in New York City on Thursday. One song contains the line: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ I made that b**** famous” in his song “Famous.”
