Taylor Swift Responds After Being Criticized For Ignoring Celine Dion

With a single charming photograph, Taylor Swift dispelled rumors that she had deliberately snubbed Céline Dion during the 66th Grammy Awards held on Sunday night.

Dion, who disclosed her diagnosis with the rare neurological condition known as stiff-person syndrome in December 2022, has been largely absent from the public eye. However, she made an unexpected appearance at the event in L.A.’s Crypto.com Arena to present the Album of the Year award. The award was won by Taylor Swift for her album “Midnights,” marking a historic moment as Swift became the first artist to win Album of the Year four times. Caught up in the excitement, Swift seemed to briefly accept the award from Dion without much interaction, a moment that sparked criticism from Dion’s fans online. “Taylor not even acknowledging Celine Dion is not sitting right with my spirit,” commented a user on X, emphasizing, “Girl, that is CELINE DION.”

However, concerns were quickly alleviated when the two stars were seen together backstage, sharing a warm moment. In the shared photos, Swift, donning a sculptural Schiaparelli Couture gown, is seen with a broad smile, gently embracing Dion, who looked elegant in a Valentino Couture blush gown and caramel coat, with her arm around Swift.

In addition to her Album of the Year win, Swift also secured the Best Pop Vocal Album Grammy for “Midnights.” During her acceptance speech for this award, Swift took the opportunity to announce her 11th studio album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” set to release on April 19.
