Taylor Swift is a Grammy Award-winning international superstar. She's massively successful, extremely famous, and you know what? She still fangirls over Beyoncé. She truly is a relatable queen.

The 2021 Grammys were a memorable night for Taylor and Bey. Taylor took home her third trophy after winning Album of the Year for folklore, making her the only female artist to have three AOTY wins.

Beyoncé also made history as the most Grammy-awarded artist with 28 wins after winning Best Music Video for her song Brown Skin Girl, Best R&B Performance for Black Parade, and Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her work on Megan Thee Stallion’s Savage (Remix).

Taylor recently shared a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and a sweet handwritten note from Beyoncé. 'Taylor, Congratulations on your GRAMMY,' Beyonce wrote. 'It was great seeing you on Sunday night. Thank you for always being so supportive. Sending love to you & your family. B.'

Taylor shared it on her Instagram Story and wrote, 'Woke up to flowers from the queen of grace & greatness @beyonce and suddenly it's the best Friday EVER. Thank you B, and congratulations on your epic achievement on Sunday night!!'

Taylor made sure to thank the people in her life during her acceptance speech. '[Thank you to] Joe, who is the first person that I play every single song that I write,' she said about her longtime boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. 'I had the best time writing songs with you in quarantine. I want to thank James, Inez, and Betty and their parents [Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds], who are the second and third people I play the songs I write.'

Beyoncé used her speech for Black Parade to explain her commitment to uplifting people through music. 'As an artist I believe it's my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times,' she said. 'It's been such a difficult time. So I wanted to uplift, encourage, and celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continued to inspire me and inspire the whole world.'
