For those who’ve had their fill of Taylor Swift, courtesy of the NFL, the pop singer was all the talk at the Grammy Awards show Sunday night after winning Album of the Year for the record fourth time.

As usual, Swift found a way to get swept up in controversy when she excitedly took the stage to receive her award, with many viewers feeling she was being “disrespectful” to Celine Dion, who was presenting the award she had won herself 27 years ago.
