Taylor Swift Childhood Photos – Not the Cutest Kid

Taylor Swift revealed to the Reading Eagle that she was picked on as a kid,

“I didn’t have friends. No one talked to me. I used to go to the Wyndcroft School (nationally recognized for academic excellence) in Pottstown, and when I moved to Wyomissing, I didn’t know anybody.”

She got through the day knowing that when she went home, she could write poems and songs in her diary.

roya | April 29th, 2009

they shoudnt have picked on her she was so cute as a kid

luis avilar | May 3rd, 2009

She was and is an ugly female. Squinty eyes are not attractive. The heavy eye make-up she wears just makes her eyes look smaller and squintier.

Aubreigh | May 8th, 2009

I’m not a huge fan of Taylor, but I can really relate to what she said. I’m 14 years old and I was definitely not the cutest kid. Everyone picked on me, I used to go to a school for the academically talented, and I wrote songs and poems about my sad experiences. I definitely understand what she went through! It reminds me of my 2006.

erica | May 16th, 2009

dear taylor,
i know wha you were going trough at that time you are my role modle when i get older im gonna be a perfesional singer love you like a sister erica

kala g | September 13th, 2009

Kanye West is a racist ego fueled wanna be…. and while he has the right to his opinion that was a classless way to show it. I’ve seen ALL the videos that were nominated and while i like taylor s. but i’m not a huge fan…. her song was better. but her video was much better.I like beyonce but there is more to music videos than shaking yo junk in front of a camera… hands down Taylor S wins…..I really hope this is kanye’s last dance I think living on the streets eating garbage suits him well

adub | October 15th, 2009

will you marry me taylor?

I cant see what Taylor Lautner sees in her. That girl is just pittaful!!!!! Taylor Swift if u really want to take someones advice dont take Jessicas. cause that is a horrible picture no offense but it is you look horrible!!!!!!!!!

OMG Taylor! You know what I wanna say right now?! You are the ugliest girl I’ve ever seen! What’s up with your eyes?! I like blue eyes but yours are so SMALL! The only reason ur pretty now is bcuz u put too much make up on! I like ur songs though. Stop singing love songs! GET OVER JOE JONAS HES NOT WORTH IT!! HES A STUPID UGLY IDIOT AND SINCE UR PRETTY NOW, U 2 DONT MATCH! IF U LOOKED LIKE HOW U DID WHEN U WERE LITTLE THAT WOULD WORK! WORLD’S UGLIEST COUPLE NO OFFENCE! Thats the truth!

Rosie | March 13th, 2010

Taylor I have the same problem as yours. everyone at school hates me. im a new student there. they hate me so much. everyone teases me. in sports nobody wants me in their team. they say rosie you can be the referee. nobody plays with me at lunch and recess. some times i go in the toilets and hide there till bell rings. There’s another new girl in the class, and every one likes her even the boys wants to hang around with her every time. all the girls like her. some of these girls have a club in our classroom. and they put the new girl in their club and left me out. one day when we were playing volley ball a girl pushed me and started calling me a loser and a bitch and pinched me to get the ball off me. I ran to the toilets and started crying. i washed my face. the leader of the club in our class came up to me and promised me that now i’ll play with them only at recess and lunch. and thje nxt day she forgot her promise and didn’t even ask me to play with her. everyone at my new school is just so mean to me. I was very famous and filled with attitude at my old school. The hate me so much that they don’t leave a single chance of teasing me. And if i get a certificate or teacher says a good comment about me they get very jealous.
yeah so that’s the whole story. I don’t know what to do. please give me some advice

she is not the worst kid. i think she was cind of pretty

sarah | July 11th, 2010

This pic shows that not only BLACK/negros can only wear braids and look pretty . Shes not pretty shes beautiful this is not ugly shes beautiful i think and if you dont think so you MUST be ugly because your just jelous i think if she went in a beauty pagent she would win 1st. place. she looks good in braid black/negros look pretty kinda too but not like her because most black/negros hav FAKE hair that is why they look pretty NOTT
and back on topic they hav FAKE hair and she doesnt and yall pplz who are jelous of her yall are going to hell because being jelous of someone or something if yall didnt know and be lazy and dont go to church that is a commandement and you are never aloud to breack a commandment of God and you pplz are going to hell so you are just jelous so just admit it ok stop hiding in side you should be happy just the way you are and if you think this is stupid then stop sitting on the computer and go preach the word so go to church more often so you blacks/niggros need to stop wearing that weev AND take it out so you look pretty and on special accasoins you can wear it but also all BLACK/NEGROS DON’T WASH THERE HAIR BUTT ONLY ONCE A MONTH THATS JUST NASTY i think pplz or Black pplz shouldnt wear braids so call me what you want butt you no im right!!!!!!

People get their feelings hurt everyday, chicky try going to rape abuse prostitution slavery and bs so stop crying glad u made ur success but ur getting picked on is nothing to cry bout. Its lonely and cruel but there’s no much worse. Sorry if that sounds inconsiderate but its true. Eminem’s story 8mile is something he can complain bout ur gettin teased isnt

OMG TAYLOR SWIFT! you should never let them bring you down. They are only words! And besides, all those people are:1. BLINDED BY YOUR SHEER BEAUTY, 2.ARE REALLY, REALLY, WEIRD. or3.SOMTHING IS BOTHERING THEM.omg, also, on ur bday, we made a cake with the words “Happy Birthday To Taylor!!” Instead of happy birthday as a song, we sang”my faith in you was fading when I met you on the outskirts of town and I said,Romeo save me ive been feeling so alone, I keep waiting for you but you never come is it in my head I don’t know what to think he knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said, marry me Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone, I love you and that’s all I really know, i talked to your dad you’ll pick out a white dress, its a love story, baby just say yes.”
