If you haven’t heard by now, Taylor Swift made history at the Grammys on Sunday night by becoming the only artist to win album of the year four times. She won that Grammy—her 14th overall—for her album Midnights—which also won best pop vocal album at the ceremony.
We could talk about Swift’s record-breaking achievements, her impact on culture, her crazy 2023, or her mid-Grammys announcement that her next album, The Tortured Poets Department, is being released on April 19. But I have a more urgent, more pressing question that I need to get addressed.
Why did Taylor Swift keep trying to put her Grammy award on people’s heads?
This is a real thing that she did, multiple times, without explanation or preamble, during and after the awards show.
See: exhibit A. Swift had barely finished her speech after winning album of the year when she exuberantly began attempting to force people to wear her award as a hat.
She wasn’t done though. After the show, Swift tried very, very hard to get boygenius to place her trophy upon their heads.
First, she tried to get Lucy Dacus to try out her new hat.
