Hey, so guess who crept out of the woodwork: Taylor Swift!
The popstar recorded a video to help congratulate the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook being crowned the NBA’s most valuable player for 2017.
In the one-minute clip released on Monday night, Swift jokingly tells Westbrook she taught him basketball, but that he helped with the idea for “Shake It Off.”
The video is a little awkward okay, very awkward but cute.
“I remember the first time you beat me at basketball, and I was very upset, and you said if you remember correctly you said, ‘you just have to shake off.’ And I got an idea,” Swift said.
“So essentially we have each other to thank for these careers, obviously.”
Of course, that’s not the truth though, although Swift “wish it were.”
But really, Westbrook is quite the fan of Swift, as evidenced by his knowledge of the pop star’s lyrics at a 2015 concert.
