Woman who went to high school with Taylor Swift reveals what she was actually like

Taking to TikTok, they claimed that Taylor Swift was not well-liked at school, with some people even allegedly calling her 'b*tchy'

A woman who says she was at school with Taylor Swift has revealed what the singer was like before becoming famous.

Jessica McLane posted a video to TikTok and spilled the tea on what the singer was like before achieving fame.

Swift grew up in Wyomissing Pennsylvania before she moved out to Tennessee at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music.

As proof that she did indeed go to school with Swift, McLane produced a high school yearbook which featured a picture of a young Swift.

The pair both attended Hendersonville High School in Nashville, Tennessee at the same time.

And it seems that the singer may not have been quite so popular at school as she is today.

McLane said: "When she first started becoming super successful, most people hated her.

"Keep in mind, these are her peers, this isn't, like, just random people on the internet.

"There were not a lot of people in high school who had nice things to say about her.

"There were general rumors about her being b***hy. [People would say], 'She said this, she said that, she was mean.'"

But McLane didn't mince her words when it came to some of the reasons behind the ill feeling either.

"Jealousy was definitely a thing," she said. "The 16, 17-year-olds who were trying to have a career in music at Hendersonville were playing downtown or at the local coffee shop, not winning awards."

She added: "It's not that these people weren't talented, it's just that most people don't make it.

"Also, back then, Taylor didn't have as good of control over her voice as she does now, so there were a lot of people in high school who were vocally a lot better."

Swift has of course gone on to become an international superstar and worldwide brand.

She was named TIME Person of the Year 2023, with the magazine arguing that she was a huge component of US soft power internationally.

But some people who are less than thrilled by this are Swift's ex-boyfriends from high school.

The singer is known for referencing her own life experiences in her songs, and McLane said that some of them are not pleased that they featured.

She said: "The guys she was writing these songs about they were still in school, they were still there.

"And now they have a hit song about them talking about what a s**ty boyfriend they are, you know?"

UNILAD has reached out to representatives for Taylor Swift for comment.
