Taylor Swift Turned to Kesha for Advice During Groping Case

Taylor Swift Turned to Kesha for Advice During Groping Case

Taylor Swift is revealing how she turned to Kesha for help throughout her sexual assault trial.

The “Call It What You Want” singer was taken to court by a radio DJ after she came forward that he groped her during a photo opp. Taylor won and requested a symbolic one dollar from him.

During her court proceedings, Taylor turned to the “Rainbow” singer, who is currently embroiled in her own legal battle against her former producer Dr. Luke, whom she claims sexually assaulted and emotionally abused her.

“People have been largely very supportive of my story since the trial began in August,” Taylor told Time in her Person of the Year cover story, “but before that, 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. The details were all skewed, as they often are. … I spoke to Kesha on the phone and it really helped to talk to someone who had been through the demoralizing court process.”

Taylor Swift Profiled By 'Time' After #MeToo Movement Named Person of the Year

Taylor Swift Profiled By 'Time' After #MeToo Movement Named Person of the Year

Time‘s Person of the Year for 2017 is the “silence breakers” – aka those who have come forward as part of the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct – and Taylor Swift is one of those being profiled.

If you don’t know, the 27-year-old entertainer was taken to court by a radio DJ after she came forward that he groped her during a photo opp.

“When I testified, I had already been in court all week and 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 mom was so upset after her cross-examination, she was physically too ill to come to court the day I was on the stand. I was angry,” Taylor said. “In that moment, I decided to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. This man hadn’t considered any formalities when he assaulted me, and his lawyer didn’t hold back on my mom—why should I be polite? I’m told it was the most amount of times the word ‘ass’ has ever been said in Colorado Federal Court.”

Taylor then gave advice to people who may be in a similar situation as she was. “My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you. You should not be blamed for waiting 15 minutes or 15 days or 15 years to report sexual assault or harassment, or for the outcome of what happens to a person after he or she makes the choice to sexually harass or assault you,” Taylor said.

In addition, Taylor revealed she never did receive the money she was awarded from the courts – a symbolic one dollar.

“When the jury found in my favor, the man who sexually assaulted me was court-ordered to give me a symbolic $1. To this day he has not paid me that dollar, and I think that act of defiance is symbolic in itself,” she said.

More Photos from Taylor Swift's Shoot for 'British Vogue' Revealed!

More Photos from Taylor Swift's Shoot for 'British Vogue' Revealed!

We already showed you the cover of British Vogue‘s new issue featuring Taylor Swift and now we have the inside images from the magazine!

The 27-year-old singer was photographed by the legendary Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, who she worked with for the artwork on her album reputation.

Taylor wrote a poem for the magazine that you can read if you pick up the issue, on sale Friday!

“For me, the chance to help transform America’s most fascinating sweetheart was a joy,” the mag’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful said in a statement. “As we took the pop icon on an epic fashion journey with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, what struck me most about Taylor was her brilliant sense of humour, but also how, for a woman in her twenties, she has an incredible sense of who she is. Obviously she is a world-class lyricist – and has written a stunning poem just for Vogue on the timely subject of reinvention and moving on – but she also takes her duties as a role model very seriously.”

Taylor is acutely aware of her following and how she communicates with young women, and will never portray a character that would send the wrong message. That said, even superstars aren’t immune to the power of a great dress. Taylor says she has never seen herself transformed like this before, and I was very touched to see how emotional she was at the end of our shoot day in London,” he added.
