Remember when Macklemore and Ryan Lewis beat out Kendrick Lamar for best rap album at the 2014 Grammys? Well following that he apologized to Lamar and was very vocal about thinking that Lamar should have won.

Last night during her walk up to the stage after winning Album of The Year, it looks as if Taylor Swift might have had a moment similar to Macklemore.

Swift rose up with the shocked face that we are use to seeing over and over again and celebrated with her team. Then, she looked around and found Kendrick Lamar who was on his feet clapping for Swift.

She walked over to him gave him a big hug and said what looks like "I love you." Of course Swift and Lamar have a way better relationship that her and Kanye West, so it's more than likely that she was just going over to show her friend some support after winning an award over them.

So, it's hard to say whether or not she actually did have that Macklemore moment.

That being said, Swift did address the elephant in the room in her speech.

"As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice," said Swift.

"I want to say to all the young women out there that 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."

The comments were directly related to Kanye's lyrics in his song "Famous." Kanye has denied that his lyrics were a diss to Swift. Either was it has been a pretty eventful week for Taylor Swift.
