Taylor Swift, can you just stop it? You are making all the other musical artists undoubtedly feel horrible. You come across as a pleasant and sincere person
and making other people feel shame is not something that generally happens in regard to you, but once the Grammy nominations were announced on Friday, you might be guilty all the same.
OK, that's enough of me confronting Taylor Swift directly. She is very unlikely to be reading this (although if you are, thanks, Taylor!) thus directing my words at her seems, well...a little strange.
The point is that Taylor Swift set more records during the announcement of the Grammy noms. She previously smashed records for highest-grossing tour earlier this year with her ongoing Eras concerts.
Then she put out a video about the trip that had the largest opening for any movie like it. There are a handful of other records she has set recently as well. In fact, too numerous to name here.
But directly relevant to the Grammy Awards, Swift won her eighth all-time nomination for Song of the Year. That is, of course, a new mark. The song she was nominated for is "Anti-Hero."
She also equaled Barbara Streisand's record for the most album of the year nominations ever received by a female artist. Swift was nominated for her album "Midnights" in the 2024 noms.
For "Anti-Hero," Taylor Swift received nominations for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. She was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her song "Karma" which features Ice Spice.
