Taylor Swift was more cautious than ever when talking to peers at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

On Sunday night (February 4), the 34-year-old singer-songwriter made a glamorous entrance at the prestigious music ceremony at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California.

During the event, Swift was spotted talking with her tablemate Jack Antonoff, 39, who co-produced her album of the year-winning record, Midnights (2022).

A video captured by E! News revealed the artist holding up a black folding fan over her face while carrying on a discreet conversation with the Bleachers musician.

Watch the moment below:

Many users on X (formerly Twitter) shared their reactions to the humorous display, with one user person remarking: "Lmfao she’s like I’m not getting caught in 4K again."

Another chimed in: "That cracks me up. No way they are catching anything lol," while a third user referenced the first single off Swift's Reputation album, penning: "Look what you made her do."

A fourth user shared: "Dying at Taylor Swift bringing the fan to make sure people wouldn’t be reading her lips this time."

The move appeared to be inspired by a scandal from January's Golden Globe Awards ceremony when the 'Love Story' hitmaker was spotted chatting with her longtime friend, Selena Gomez.

In case you missed it, viral online footage revealed the 31-year-old Only Murders In The Building star leaning in to discreetly talk to the 'Karma' songstress and Miles Teller's wife Keleigh Sperry.

At one point in the clip, Swift and Sperry's mouths drop open in shock as Gomez then appears to confirm what she has just said with an enthusiastic nod.

According to one X (formerly Twitter) user, a lipreader claimed that Gomez said: "I asked for a picture with him and she said no," to which Sperry seemingly mouthed the question: "With Timothée?" - potentially referring to the 28-year-old actor Timothee Chalamet, who attended the award show with his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner.

Of course, the internet went wild after seeing the video which is why Gomez cleared all speculation in the comment section of an E! News Instagram post, which had the headline: "Was Selena Gomez Gossiping About Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet at the Golden Globes? Here’s the Truth."

The former Disney Channel star clarified that her and Swift's actual conversation had nothing to do with Chalamet and Jenner, writing: "Noooooo I told Taylor about two of my friends who hooked up. Not that that’s anyone business." (sic)

Chalamet also seemed to shut down the rumors of a feud between Gomez and his girlfriend when he was spotted by paparazzi on January 8 in Los Angeles, California.

When a reporter asked him whether he was "cool" with Gomez, who he co-starred in the 2019 rom-com A Rainy Day in New York with, he replied: "Yeah, of course," and, when questioned whether there was any "beef" between the two women, the 'Call Me By Your Name' actor said: "No."

The 'Anti-Hero' musician reigned victorious at this year's Grammys as she won Album of the Year for Midnights, becoming the first artist to win the prize for a fourth time, having previously won for Fearless, 1989, and Folklore.

Swift received the prize from Celine Dion, who made an unexpected appearance amid health fears and also delighted her supporters by revealing that she would be releasing her 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, on April 19.

The artist uploaded the cover to social media after leaving the stage, with a photo of lyrics that read: "And so I enter into evidence / My tarnished coat of arms / My muses, acquired like bruises / My talismans and charms / The tick, / tick, / tick, / of love bombs, / my veins of pitch black ink."

Miley Cyrus and Billie Eilish also took the other top awards at Sunday's ceremony, with R&B stars SZA, Victoria Monét, and all-female indie supergroup Boygenius picking up multiple accolades too.
