Russell Westbrook is a huge fan of Taylor Swift. And no, I’m not joking. He likes T-Swift almost as much as he likes the movie Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.

Russ revealed his fandom back in 2015 in a couple of Instagram posts. The first showed him blasting “Bad Blood” in his car:

BAD BLOOD!!!! @taylorswift .. Banger!!!!!

The other post showed Westbrook rocking out to “We Are Never Getting Back Together” at a Taylor Swift Concert:

Ironically, both of those songs now describe Westbrook’s relationship with former teammate Kevin Durant. But of course, nobody knew that at the time.

In any case, Westbrook won his first MVP award on Monday at the first ever NBA Awards Show. And though she wasn’t there to support her #1 fan in person, Taylor Swift did record a congratulatory video message for the OKC Thunder’s social media team.

It’s actually pretty hilarious. Take a look:

Man, it’s not everyday you get a video message from THE Taylor Swift. I guess this means Westbrook really is a superstar.
