Taylor Swift Told To Shower By Cheeky Interviewer And Fans React

The sweaty pop star laughed off the light remark, but some of the faithful got hot and bothered.

A bit of dry British humor on a muggy day did not amuse some Taylor Swift fans.

BBC Radio 1’s Greg James lightheartedly told the pop superstar “I think you need to have a shower now” after she performed at the Biggest Weekend festival in Swansea, Wales, on Sunday.

A sweaty Swift, who sang an energetic six-song set in high humidity, appeared to take the comment in stride.

“I agree,” she said. “And I’m not offended that you said that. There’s a lot going on and none of it’s good here.”

But some of her fans did not appear to shake it off so easily ― prompting the interviewer to share on Twitter that Swift “has a great sense of humor” and they had a pleasant follow-up chat.

Here’s a sampling of negative comments. Look what you made them do, Greg James.
