Picture a parallel dimension where ‘Midnights’ dropped just a year earlier, and Lana Del Rey would gracefully walk away with the coveted Grammy for Album of the Year. However, the new regulation demanding a minimum 20% feature on the album denied Rey her ‘Midnights’ recognition. But let not disappointment cloud the night, as Rey graciously adorned the event with words of praise. She stated that she loved being there, enjoying the company of everyone, sipping tea, and hanging out.

Dressed to the nines, she felt not one “ounce of negative emotion” throughout the award ceremony, turning the absence of acknowledgment into a celebration of joy, humor, and camaraderie. Enter Swift into this tale, a steadfast friend. Swift, unbothered by the rain, played the role of Rey’s savior. She used her black opera gloves to wipe off Rey’s babydoll dress. This gesture went beyond mere cleanup. Rather, it was a symbolic act of friendship. It turned a potentially dampening moment into a heartwarming one under the Grammy night sky.
