Yesterday, TIME's 'Person Of The Year' cover was unveiled, with the women involved in the #MeToo movement being honoured. One being Taylor Swift.
Although she wasn't personally involved in the movement, she did go through a huge sexual assault trial this year with ex radio host DJ, David Mueller, who groped her during a meet and greet in 2013.
In the publication, Taylor opened up about the experience and the trial for the first time ever.
“I figured that if he would be brazen enough to assault me under these risky circumstances and high stakes, imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance,” Taylor told Time, explaining how the incident went down in a public setting. “It was important to report the incident to his radio station because I felt like they needed to know.”
David has previously sued Taylor for $3 million in damages, however Taylor's countersue of $1 won.
“You might be made to feel like you’re overreacting, because society has made this stuff seem so casual," Taylor revealed. "My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you,” she said.
