Taylor Swift: ‘Bullies Inspired me to Become a Musician’


Monday, November 8, 2010

Taylor SwiftTAYLOR Swift says her school bullies inspired her to become a musician.

The 20-year-old singer was tormented by several classmates when her family moved from their farmhouse in Pennsylvania to a new house in the city.

The pupils would tease her and shun her offers of friendship, but ultimately Taylor believes those adolescent experiences made her more determined to pursue her music dream.

“There are two ways you can with it if you are bullied,” Taylor said. “You can let it destroy you, or you can use it as fuel to drive you: to dream bigger, work harder. I wasn’t invited to parties and I look back now and I’m so thankful that I was at home playing guitar until my fingers bled.”

Taylor — who has just released her new album Speak Now — says some of her bullies now come to her concerts and signing sessions but she no longer feels the need to confront them about what they did to her.

“I don’t think they even remember what happened,” she said. “And when I see them sitting in line at my meet-and-greets wearing my T-shirts, I’m not going to walk up to them and say, ‘How could you do that?’ Because look at how life has gone. They were there for a reason, and I’m happy about it.”

    Taylor had told it, in her famous song fifteen.”cause when you’re fifteen, and somebody tells you they love you, you gotta believe them.” She was too young to find out the truth.She might think those boys were getting crush on her.很显然人们讨厌她的自作多情,孤立她,疏远她,评价她的穿着举止,讥讽嘲笑她的缺陷。他们肆意的调侃与捉弄,毁了Tay本该无忧无虑的青春。其实Taylor很可怜。
