Playing Taylor Swift Gets Picked for Jury Pool, Couldn't Be Sweeter to Fans

Taylor Swift did her civic duty.

The 26-year-old singer reported for jury duty in Nashville on Monday, and showed up makeup-free and dressed in a simple black top. According to social media posts making the rounds on the Internet, Swift happily posed for selfies with her fellow potential jurors, and kept a big smile on her face the entire time.

"Met @taylorswift13 today at jury duty. She is so nice. #civicduty," twitter user @n8foo wrote.

"I really appreciate that she showed up for jury duty in our city despite her celebrity status. She was very gracious, and I was proud that my jury duty peers were very respectful," an eyewitness tells ET.

One video shows a mother regaling Swift with a story about her kids singing to "Shake It Off" that very morning, which she appears to be clearly flattered by.

The case Swift was being considered for as a juror involved charges of aggravated rape, aggravated kidnapping and domestic assault, according to local news outlet WSMV-TV. Although Swift said she could be fair and impartial as a juror, she was eventually dismissed from the possible jury pool.

ET has reached out to her rep for comment.

The superstar's presence was certainly missed at Sunday's 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, though it's not exactly a surprise she didn't attend this year -- aside from her epic beef with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian over his hit "Famous", she wasn't nominated for any awards.

Still, West did bring up Swift while introducing the world premiere of his new music video "Fade," once again reiterating that he "called her" before releasing the controversial song.
