Good grief, I love Taylor Swift.
Friends, bear with me here… you are going to love this story. I promise.
Yeah, I’m a Swifty and I am not ashamed to tell you that. I have been listening to her for 3 solid days now and because of this Tay Tay content is being served to me on all platforms by the bucket load.
Last night I watched the cRaZiEsT TikTok video from someone who went to High School with her.
The person spoke very candidly about how people were incredibly mean to the singer during her school days. For whatever reason, they just didn’t like her. They bullied her and made her feel completely less than.
This went on for years.
Eventually, she left school and started being home-schooled, partly due to the bullying and partly due to her career.
In 2009, Taylor’s second album rocked the music world. Her name was everywhere and she was being nominated and given awards from every major ceremony around the globe. One of them was the Country Music Association Awards (the CMAs) which were taking place close to her hometown. The singer decided to invite her entire high school to those awards, and obviously, all the kids were overjoyed at the thought of being at such a prestigious event.
Little did they know that Taylor would go on to win nearly every award they gave out. Like all of them. And she performed 3 or 4 songs during the show.
And they had to sit through it all.
Some of them were even forced to hold signs up that said: “I love Taylor Swift” while looking at the back of her head. Yes, they were forced to support the very person they were so mean to… while looking at the back of her head!!!
The following year Tay Tay released a song called “Mean”… this was the chorus:
“Someday, I’ll be living in a big old city
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean.”
The classmate – in the TikTok – then looks at the camera and says, “We totally deserved it. Touché Taylor.”
Having sold over 200 million records globally, Swift is one of the best-selling musicians of all time. Her accolades include 11 Grammy Awards, including 3 Album of the Year wins; 34 American Music Awards, the most for an act; 29 Billboard Music Awards, the most for a woman; and an Emmy Award. She has been featured on rankings such as Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time, Billboard’s Greatest of All Time Artists, the Time 100 and Forbes Celebrity 100.
On Friday, Taylor did it again and crashed Spotify. In just 24 hours, “Midnights” broke the record for the most-streamed album in a single day in history!!!
And yes… those classmates… all they will ever be is mean.
What a flipping story.
That’s it. Don’t be mean.
Okay. Love you.
