Apparently, Taylor Swift has to sit through jury duty just like the rest of us. Womp. Womp.
It's probably good the pop star didn't make an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, because she had jury duty in Nashville Monday morning.
Swift showed up for jury duty Monday morning with security in tow. The Tennessean reported that Swift posed for photos and videos with fans and when prosecutors asked her profession, she replied: "I am a songwriter."
The trial is a domestic violence case involving a charge of aggravated rape, according to The Tennessean.
It is expected to last two or three days. However, Swift was dismissed from the jury around 1 p.m.
Swift's courthouse appearance garnered plenty of attention.
The very enthusiastic, Tracy Bates, whose Twitter bio says she's a "Licensed Instructor of Criminal Justice," live-tweeted the whole thing.
Bates has since taken many of her photos down because of backlash on Twitter. Many people chastised her for taking photos.
According to the Huffington Post, jurors in Nashville are allowed to use their cellphones in the jury assembly room but not in the courtroom.
Swift also did a video shoutout to one of the juror's kids.
