Taylor Swift Testifies Against Alleged Butt-Groper + More ‘Twilight,’ ‘Hunger Games’ Movies Coming: Pop Bits
Some memorable (and not for good reasons) testimony at the Taylor Swift groping trial earlier today -- that and more, in this afternoon's Pop Bits:
Taylor Swift on Alleged Grope — "It Was a Very Long Grab": Swift was called to the witness stand in the groping trial against former DJ David Mueller. She did not mince her words. We also learned that her mother did not take the news well when Taylor told her what (allegedly) happened.
