Taylor Swift comes ‘out of the woods’ to congratulate Russell Westbrook on MVP award
Westbrook is a longtime Taylor Swift fan.
Russell Westbrook finally won the MVP award he has longed for on Monday night at the first-ever NBA Awards show. It was a great moment for Westbrook as he thanked his team, his family, and even the media. As the praise came rolling in on Twitter, one from Taylor Swift showed up on the Oklahoma City Thunder Twitter account.
The video from Taylor is significant for two reasons. Reason one is that Swift has essentially been hiding from the media since last summer. She’s said very little publicly lately about anything at all, yet she was ready to come “out of the woods” to congratulate Westbrook because Russ is the greatest. Excuse my pun, it’s a Taylor Swift song. Seriously, though, she’s been MIA for so long, it turned into a thing.
The other is that Westbrook is a pretty big Swift fan. We first found out about it in 2015 when Russ was singing along to “Bad Blood” in his car.
And then this happened.
And again, when Westbrook was singing “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
Congratulations again to Westbrook on his MVP Award. And as always, let Westbrook be Westbrook.
