The pop star has been keeping a low profile this year while she works on her next album (and romances new boyfriend Joe Alwyn), but she found time to pop up for a special shoutout to one famous fan: Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook.
Here's the (very random) message a curly-haired Swift shared with Westbrook's team in honor of his big win.
“Remember I was the one who taught you to play basketball," the singer said. "I was the one who taught you to dribble, to shoot hoops, you know? And I remember the first time you beat me at basketball. I was very upset, and you said, if you remember correctly, you said, ‘You just have to shake it off.' And I got an idea.
"So essentially we have each other to thank for these careers," she joked. "That’s why I’m a part of your congratulations video, because we just, we go back 20 years. Actually, we’ve never met. That’s a fake story, but I wish it were the truth."
That may have made Westbrook's day, but some of his fans couldn't help sharing their second-hand embarrassment.
Hate all you want, but the man likes who he likes. If it's Swift he wants, who are we to argue?
