Taylor Swift Addresses Her Sexual Assault Trial in a Rare Interview

In August, the Reputation singer stood trial against radio DJ David Mueller, who asserted the sexual assault claims she made against him were false.

In the accompanying issue, the singer breaks her own silence about her court case earlier this year against DJ David Mueller, who sued her for defamation after he was sacked when she told his superiors that Mueller had groped her backstage at a concert.

What happened in the courtroom made headlines for weeks, but one of the mot profound moments was Swift's strong testimony against Mueller. Swift responded to questions about her experience from TIME in writing. That lawsuit was ultimately dismissed, and Swift won hers. She was honoured alongside Tarana Burke, Ashley Judd, Susan Fowler, Adama Iwu, Isabel Pascual, Terry Crews, Rose McGowan and more.

She was angry with him before she entered the house but as soon as she saw Priyank, she was left with mixed emotions. As the task continues to test the determination of the housemates, will see more guests to enter Bigg Boss house.

Taylor Swift was featured on Time's Person of the Year cover on Wednesday, as one of 2017's "silence breakers" who spoke out during this year's cultural reckoning surrounding sexual harassment and abuse.

In the end, her motivation in getting justice was to protect those with even less pull or power in the industry. "I figured that if [Mueller] 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", she said. She reported the incident to Mueller's radio station, and he was sacked. Two years later, Mueller brought a $3 million suit against the singer for defamation. She reported the incident to his employer, and Mueller was sacked. "I was angry", she said of the moment she took the stand.

"When the jury found in my favor, the man who sexually assaulted me was court-ordered to give me a symbolic $1", she told Time. When I testified, I already had to watch this man bully, badger, and assault my team, including my mother.

She added, "I'm told it was the most amount of times the word "ass" has ever been said in Colorado Federal Court".

If you feel like you've been the victim of sexual harassment at work - including conduct such as offensive jokes, slurs, name-calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures, and interference with work performance - there are groups who will support you and help you break your silence. My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you. Swift filed a countersuit a month later for sexual assault and battery and sought a symbolic $1. But the one thing she did that did not survive in the news-cycle for long-but should have-is the symbolic victory she gained over a man who sexually assaulted her.

She, too, was brought to the U.S.as a child from Mexico, and like Angeles was unsure how she'd ever afford college. Carrion didn't qualify for numerous public grants but was able to attend Whitman College on private scholarships.

At first, some may have been confused to see Swift - a famously apolitical celebrity who has been criticized for not taking any political stance in this divisive year - categorized as one of "the voices that launched a movement", as the magazine put it.
