Taylor Swift rocked BBC Music’s the Biggest Weekend festival in Swansea, Wales, on Sunday, and though she put on quite a show, the singer received a comment afterward that she probably wasn’t expecting.

“It’s nice to see you. I think you need to have a shower now,” BBC Radio 1’s Greg James joked to singer after their televised interview.

“I agree! And I’m not offended that you said that!” Swift responded cheerfully. Though the temperature in Swansea reached a high of about only 71 degrees on Sunday, according to Accuweather, the humidity was quite high at around 80%. And so like many of the 26,000 fans at the festival, Swift was a tad sweaty.

While the 10-time Grammy winner gave a perfect response to the DJ’s comment, some viewers shared their disbelief on Twitter.

“#TaylorSwift has her first recorded interview after years of not doing them and she’s told that she needs a shower … --,” the Taylor Swift News account tweeted along with a video of the moment.

One person tweeted a photo of Swift staring directly into the camera as James spoke to her and captioned it, “And here we see Taylor Swift asking the camera person to help her escape this Greg James interview.”

But the reactions weren’t all negative. “‘Taylor Swift’ planning her revenge song against Greg James --,” joked one person.

James joked about his faux pas on Twitter after receiving a barrage of criticism on social media, writing: “If anyone’s got a video of a cow that gets excited when it sees the Queen, now would be a good time to tweet it.”
