We at Dirt Bag often bring up how trashy and unreliable Radar Online often is, but just like Tess McGill became a killer businesswoman by reading W and Page Six, we must keep it in our gossip rotation because occasionally they’re not only right, they’re sourced.


Today they published a story about David Mueller, the DJ who was convicted late last year of groping Taylor Swift at a meet-and-greet back in 2013. (He was famously ordered to pay a symbolic $1 to Swift.) And guess what? They talked to him. Not only does Mueller claim he didn’t grab Taylor’s “bare ass cheek,” he claims he’s a perfect gentleman who would never even dream of doing it.

During his chat with Radar Online, Mueller pondered how Swift could “live with herself” after ruining his life—specifically his relationship with ladies—adding:

“Now I’m afraid to even talk to women. I feel like I’m in a prison. I’m not myself anymore. I don’t even go near women... It make me upset. I was always the gentleman. I would always say, ‘Hey, watch your language, there’s a lady here,’ and then I get accused of this. I know that if I didn’t do it I would have never been able to live with myself. At least now that my life is totally screwed up I’m proud of myself.”


Here’s that picture, by the way.

2. A quote:

“The things that I actually will get for myself in terms of snacks—pea protein. I like these bars and this shake called Orgain and I get them on Amazon and they’re very easy. If I’m getting, like, that sudden hunger and I need to eat now and I don’t have time to get a healthy snack, that’s like a bar that I get that I’ll eat regularly... Macro bars are really great as well. I’ll also eat salads throughout the day or hummus, I’m a big hummus person.”


3. Some questions and comments:

  • What is pea protein?
  • What is Orgain?
  • What is a macro bar?
  • Salads are not a snack.
  • Hummus is the only relatable thing on that list.
