Reese Witherspoon and Ruby Rose have praised Taylor Swift for her empowering acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards on social media.
The “Shake It Off” singer became the first female to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice when she scooped the award for 1989 in Los Angeles.
During her acceptance speech, Swift told young females to not let others take credit for their success. This is thought to be in response to Kanye West’s new song “Famous”, in which he references Swift by claiming he made her popular.
“@taylorswift13 Loved your amazing words! Keep encouraging all those young women to write their stories& sing their songs #Grammys,” Witherspoon posted on Twitter.

Swift, 26, who also won Best Music Video for “Bad Blood” and Best Pop Vocal Album for 1989, celebrated at the Hyde Sunset Kitchen and Cocktail venue with Lorde, Ellie Goulding, Jack Antonoff and boyfriend Calvin Harris.
