Taylor Swift is getting rave reviews for her aggressive responses on the witness stand in her civil suit against a former radio DJ she says groped her butt in 2013.
But the quote that will live forever came after the later-fired DJ’s lawyer asked Swift why, in a photo, the front of her skirt did not appear to be lifted.
“Because my ass is located in the back of my body,” the “Shake it Off” singer said Thursday at the Denver civil trial in which she seek a symbolic $1 judgment.
CNN said: “Swift was confident and assertive in her testimony. She rejected [David] Mueller’s claim that their interaction was basic ‘jostling’ for a photo and dismissed the possibility that she had misidentified Mueller.”
“This is what happened, it happened to me, I know it was him,” Swift said, adding that she had no reaction to learning that Mueller, then 51, had been fired over the incident.
“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.”
