Jimmy Butler was caught dancing like he’s “22,” and his moves got Taylor Swift’s stamp of approval.
An old video of the professional basketball player — and longtime Swiftie — showing off his moves and singing along to the upbeat Red track in the locker room aired in an interview segment on TNT this week. Laughing, Dwyane Wade gave him a 9 out of 10.
Butler’s reaction? “Y’all need to stay off my Instagram or wherever you got this from.”
But the clip caught the eye of Swift, who offered top marks for the effort: “13/10,” she tweeted with a cat emoji on Friday (Feb. 19).
Butler once named “I Knew You Were Trouble,” “Shake It Off” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” as his favorite Swift songs, though that list circa 2015 might have changed with time.
