"I'm not going to say I'm gonna be in the back screaming but…I didn't say I wouldn't," he said of going to the 1989 Tour.

Swifties can show up in unexpected places -- including on an NBA court.

Jimmy Butler, who recently re-signed with the Chicago Bulls, spoke with Rolling Stone about a whole range of issues, including his Taylor Swift fandom. Yes, you read that correctly.

"I am a T-Swift fan," Butler confirmed. "I'm going to see her in San Diego in August. I'm not going to say I'm gonna be in the back screaming but…I didn't say I wouldn't...She's a Knicks fan so whenever we play the Knicks I just go up to her and say, 'Hey, you know, I listen to your music,' and she's like, 'Oh, well, I watch you play basketball.'"

But just because he's a Swiftie doesn't mean he plays harder when she's in house. "I just play no matter who is there," he said, adding, "If it's another celebrity, I'm just out there doing what they do: putting on a show."

Come August, we're going to need to see the concert footage of Butler shaking it off immediately uploaded to YouTube.
