Taylor Swift is OK getting this middle finger

Posted on Feb 20 2016 - 5:02pm by

This time, Taylor Swift is “flattered” about getting flipped off.

The “1989” singer was named best international solo artist from NME magazine — which sent her a gilded trophy of a hand giving the middle finger.

Swift couldn’t accept the dubious distinction in person at the U.K. ceremony, however, so she sent an adorable pre-recorded video graciously thanking the awards show for the rude gesture — which is the magazine’s standard award.

“I gotta be honest with you about this: When you first open up the box, this feels a little aggressive,” she says, pausing for comic effect as she hoists the graphic trophy into frame.

Swift later admits you “get used to it” once you put it on the shelf.

“You know what? I kinda like it. It’s kind of like, LOL,” she says.

Taylor Swift accepting her 2016 NME award for best international solo artist. Yes, the magazine’s trophy features a middle finger in a rude salute. But Swift took it in stride.

“But just saying, at first, first impressions were a little weird here. … Thank you so much for the award!”

The golden digit should be right at home with the three new Grammys that Swift added to her collection on Monday night, when she threw shade back at Kanye West for rapping in his new song, “Famous,” “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”

Swift took the high road in her album of the year acceptance speech, flipping the bird at West only with words.

“I want to say to all the young women out there, 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,” she said. “But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there.”
