Taylor Swift Said Talking to Kesha During Her Groping Trial

He claimed Swift's false accusation that he reached his hand up her skirt and grabbed her bare behind during a meet and greet at the Pepsi Center ruined his chances of ever working in radio again.

"I spent two years reading headlines referring to it as "The Taylor Swift Butt Grab Case" with Internet trolls making a joke about what happened to me", she wrote.

The famous singer opened up about her trial against David Mueller for the first time in an interview with Time magazine after she was placed on the cover for the 2017 Person of the Year: the #metoo movement.

In an interview with Buzzfeed News, Time National Correspondent Charlotte Alter said the inclusion of the elbow was "very intentional", adding that "a huge part of this story we're trying to tell here is that as much as the stigma around this has been removed this year because of the "Me Too" movement, it's still really hard for a lot of people to come forward".

"It's intentional, to represent women who aren't able to come forward", she wrote.

Taylor Swift sued former DJ David Mueller for sexual assault to ensure no one else suffered at his hands.

Swift was awarded a symbolic $1 in damages following the court battle - but she still hasn't received it and she thinks that was a deliberate gesture from Mueller.

Taylor Swift is among the group of women collectively recognized by Time as one of the Silence Breakers in the magazine's Person of the Year portfolio for their bravery in speaking up about sexual harassment.

"In that moment, I chose to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened".

Swift posed alongside other women on the annual cover - which also included actress and Harvey Weinstein accuser, Ashley Judd.

Swift goes on to talk about how Mueller didn't consider "formalities" while grabbing her, so she chose to be blunt on the stand, adding, "his lawyer didn't hold back on my mom - why should I be polite?"

Now a voice for the movement as identified by Time, Swift urged her fans not to feel blamed, as she did. There was an audible gasp in the courtroom when I was named as the defendant.

She said: "When I testified, I had already had to watch this man's attorney bully, badger and harass my team, including my mother over inane details and ridiculous minutiae, accusing them, and me, of lying". "My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you", she said. As she explained, confronting Mueller about his inappropriate behavior was "a lonely and draining experience", despite her court win against him.

"To this day he has not paid me that dollar, and I think that act of defiance is symbolic [of where we still have to go] in itself".
