‘I cried and ate a lot’: Poor Tay-Tay admits Grammys loss hit her HARD

In the aftermath of the 2014 Grammys – Taylor Swift was certainly courting plenty of attention, though not necessarily for the right reasons.

Although she was a performer on the night – as well as a high-profile nominee – the 25-year-old ultimately didn’t walk away with a coveted gong.

Worse still, video footage caught her bitter disappointment as it was announced that Daft Punk had beaten her, scooping the Grammy for Best Album.

"When they announced the Album Of The Year winner it was like, 'And the album of the year goes to… Reeeeeandom Access Memories, Daft Punk!'” Ms Swift has now explained.

“And they really dragged out the reeee…”

As her own nominated was entitled Red, there was understandably some momentary confusion. “For a second there, I kind of thought we had it, and we didn't.”

The disappointment meant the singer-songwriter wasn’t in the mood for partying. “I remember not going to afterparties,” Swifty added.

“I went home and I cried a little bit, and I got In-N-Out Burger and ate a lot.”

The songstress furthermore explained that prior to the ceremony, a load of fellow attendees had told her that she was definitely “gonna win”.

"I wish they wouldn't do that because you don't know if you're gonna win – someone else could very well win."

To add insult to injury, the Trouble singer in the aftermath sparked countless memes which captured her distress.

However, Tay-Tay went on to state that not winning a big award can actually prompt better music: "You can say, 'Maybe they're right – maybe I did not make the record of my career.'

“Maybe I need to fix the problem, which was that I have not been making sonically cohesive albums.

“I need to really think about whether I'm listening to a scared record label and what that's doing to the art I'm making."
