 Add to favorites

Presenter and DJ Greg James has caused a stir online after an interview with Taylor Swift, in which he told her she needed a shower.

James was speaking to Swift shortly after she’d come off stage at the weekend’s BBC Biggest Weekend in Swansea.

“It’s nice to see you,” said James. “I think you need to have a shower now.”

Swift took the comment in good humour, replying: “I agree! And I’m not offended that you said that! There’s a lot going on and none of it’s good.”

However, many viewers and Swift fans were less than please with James’ comment. Some called upon James to apologise for being “rude” and “ill-mannered”.

I can’t not believe someone had the audacity to tell Taylor Swift to take a shower in her first interview in 2 years.THE NERVE

Really @GragJames telling @taylorswift13 she needs to take a shower? However British you are, remember that you're being watched globally. Where are your manners?

@gregjames I can't believe you just told the actual @taylorswift13 that she should probably go and take a shower. #BiggestWeekend

However, other viewers defended James – hailing the moment as “pure gold”:

@gregjames telling @taylorswift13 to have a shower was pure gold. Highlight of the weekend ????????

@gregjames I mean all these live performances are great and all but the highlight of #BiggestWeekend for me (and indeed all of us I think it would be fair to say) was when you told @taylorswift13 that she needed to have a shower ????????@BBCR1

James, who wracked up millions of views on Youtube by performing ‘Blank Space’ with Swift in a proto version of ‘Carpool Karaoke’ several years ago, responded to the criticism – telling followers that the pair were “all good”.

“TS has a great sense of humour and we have known each other for ages and had a good catch up after the interview,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s all cool. It was hot up there. I almost said we should both go for a shower but after this reaction I’m glad I didn’t!”

She really is right. TS has a great sense of humour and we have known each other for ages and had a good catch up after the interview. It’s all cool. It was hot up there. I almost said we should both go for a shower but after this reaction I’m glad I didn’t! X
