Taylor Swift dismissed from jury duty

Update : 02 Sep 2016, 05:01 PM

Another potential juror, Tracey Bates, alerted the world of the star's appearance. “I am on jury duty with @taylorswift13,” she tweeted. The star was in a holding area at the courtroom with dozens of others waiting to hear if they would be selected.

Initially, people weren't allowed to take pictures but the singer did go on to pose for several selfies while waiting. A number of pictures were posted on social media which have since then been deleted or made private.

As it turns out, Taylor Swift won't actually be serving on the jury. There was a conflict of interest because of an ongoing sexual assault case she in which was involved in Denver, Colorado.

The Davidson County district judge agreed to dismiss her because of “concerns about an upcoming trial.”

Swift had not been nominated for an award at this year's MTV Video Music Awards but many thought her absence was because of her long-running feud with Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West. Kanye had been given four minutes on stage to do whatever he wanted. He did briefly mention Taylor Swift during that time.
