Taylor Swift was absent at the VMAs last night, but it’s not because she was scared of what Kanye West might say! Well, more than likely, anyway.

TMZ reveals that Taylor had to go to Tennessee, as she was actually selected to serve jury duty, and this morning the selection process began. Now, she probably definitely could have still made it with a late night flight or even a private jet…but we’ll let her cook.

The criminal case in Nashville involves charges of aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping and domestic assault. Taylor’s one of 30 potential jurors, but she hasn’t been selected just yet. Highly doubt she will either, but let’s see!
