Taylor Swift has just won another award, and this one is pretty pointed.

Fresh off of her triumph at the Grammy Awards on Monday, Swift was honored with the NME Awards’ Best International Solo Artist Award, from British music publication NME.

Well, maybe “honored” is a bit of a stretch, as the trophy is shaped like a hand with its middle finger extended.

In a video of her acceptance of the award, the singer admitted that the trophy “feels a little aggressive.”

“I gotta be honest with you about this; when you first open up the box, this feels a little aggressive,” Swift said. “And then you get used to it and you put it on the shelf and you’re like, ‘You know what? I kinda like it.'”

The singer went on to acknowledge that the rudely shaped award “is actually like a strange compliment.”

“First impressions were a little weird here, but now I understand that this is actually like a strange compliment,” Swift said. “You’re like being cheeky about it.”

The “1989” chanteuse concluded, “Thank you so much for the award.”

Swift racked up three awards at the Grammys on Monday, including Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video. But clearly this latest win is a real stand-out.
