I mean, the truth is, I never really stopped loving her, but like the moon, my feelings wax and wane a little bit. Sometimes her public persona bugs me a little, but her music has always been top notch for me.
But reading over her words on the stand as she faces David Mueller in court have my little feminist heart soaring. You see, Taylor Swift alleged that David Mueller reached UP HER SKIRT and GRABBED HER BARE BUTT during a meet and greet. After Taylor told her people about this, her people contacted Mr. Mueller’s employer and they ended up making the decision to terminate his employment. David Mueller got upset and decided to sue Taylor Swift for causing him to lose his job. To the tune of $3M. Taylor then issued a countersuit of $1 with the sole purpose of proving the point that this kind of behavior is just not okay.
I find this David Mueller guy to be shady as is, especially in light of the fact that his story has changed a multitude of times, and he “accidentally” destroyed some of the evidence of the conversations between himself and the management at his Denver radio station KYGO. And his testimony didn’t really do him any favors. He denies that the incident happened.
But nevertheless, Taylor Swift persisted. And her testimony on the stand was firm and direct.
When viewing the photograph of the incident, she said, “this is a photo of him with his hand up my skirt — with his hand on my ass,” she said. “You can ask me a million questions — I’m never going to say anything different. I never have said anything different.”
When asked why the front of her skirt isn’t lifted, she replied, “Because my ass is located in the back of my body.” And when it was pointed out that her body was closer to Mueller’s then girlfriend in the picture, she replied, “Yes, she did not have her hand on my ass.”
And generally speaking she had this to say, which I believe says everything that needs to be said, “This is what happened, it happened to me, I know it was him, I’m not going to allow you or your client to make me feel in any way that this is my fault, because it isn’t. I am being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are a product of his decisions and not mine.”
