Swift applauded the “Sweet Love” singer for obtaining the rights to her catalog after a complex battle with her former record label, as Blavity previously reported.
Twitter users immediately recognized that the “22” artist was unaware that she was speaking to an elder and quickly corrected her verbiage.
