Fans believe Taylor Swift snubbed Celine Dion on stage at the Grammys.
Fans of the Canadian diva were left scratching their heads at what they saw when Taylor received her Album of the Year award from Celine, with some believing Taylor seemed oblivious to the enormity of what was happening.
“Taylor Swift just took the album of the year trophy from Celine Dion without batting an eye and/or acknowledging that a legendary GOAT was handing her the award. So cringey for my soul,” one fan posted to X/Twitter. GOAT is an acronym for 'Greatest Of All Time'.
Given it was one of Celine’s few public appearances since her 2022 diagnosis of Stiff-Person Syndrome, her fans were clearly feeling protective.
A progressive neurological disorder that affects the brain and the spinal cord, the disease has affected Celine’s ability to walk and sing, bringing her live performances and scheduled tours to a halt.
“My biggest disappointment of the Grammys was Taylor Swift winning Album of the year and hugging all of her people but taking the trophy from Celine Dion as if she was the hat-check girl, and not seeming to realize how very amazing it was that Celine was standing there at all,” wrote another fan.
However, all may not have been as it seemed, with the pair later spotted arm in arm backstage.
The Grammys telecast also showed Taylor giving Celine a standing ovation when the My Heart Will Go On legend appeared on stage.
