As we speak, Taylor Swift is on the stand in a Denver courtroom for a sexual assault lawsuit that dates back to 2013.
Swift is suing DJ David Mueller for allegedly groping her inappropriately. She describes the incident as: "[Mueller] reached up under my skirt and grabbed my ass right when I was having to pose for a photo."
This isn't the lawsuit's first life — in fact, Mueller sued first, as he claims that Swift's allegations cost him his job. Now, it's Swift's turn to reach for justice in what has become a closely-watched trial.
Naturally, there aren't any pictures from the courtroom. Instead, a sketch has been released. Swift looks... not quite right. The blonde bangs are there, but she somehow looks both evil and dowdy. Her brows are arched like she has a secret she'd rather not share with the class. The all-over confusing sketch has fans wondering: Did Katy Perry draw this, or what?
Twitter is having a field day with this picture, albeit hopefully keeping in mind that this is, at the end of the day, a woman going up against her alleged assailant.

The side view, at least, is a little better. If Taylor Swift's team is as powerful as they seem to be, we have a feeling we're only going to be seeing side views from now on.
