Taylor Swift had more important things to do than the VMAs — like jury duty.
Swifty hung back to serve on a possible Tennessee jury … and in the process avoided a possible awkward run-in with Kanye West.
We’re told she’s one of 30 potential jurors for a criminal case. Jury selection started Monday morning, and she hasn’t been selected. Yet. Word is most people in the pool were suddenly excited about having to serve.
Jury duty … Taylor makes it look fun.
