The Internet might've made a fuss over Chris Carrabba's surprise serenade for Taylor Swift's best friend Abigail Anderson on her birthday, but the Dashboard Confessional frontman doesn't think it's any big thing.

"To me, it's like, it's not newsworthy when your friend asks you to come to a birthday party for one of her other friends and sing," Carrabba told HuffPost Live in a Friday conversation.

"It wasn't newsworthy to me," he continued, "Until she just decided, like -- she [Swift] didn't have to post it. It could've just been a private moment, but that's not who she is."

Though, the singer insists he didn't mind the video of him singing "Hands Down" alongside Swift, Anderson and Paramore's Haley Williams making its way onto the Internet.

"Post everything, Taylor!" he laughed. "She's incredible."

Carrabba's praise for the "Bad Blood" songstress didn't end there.

"She's incredibly deserved of her success based on the quality of her truly incredible songwriting, but also the fact that she's just really a great person," he said. "That's hard -- to stay a great person when you're the biggest artist in the world."
