While Taylor Swift seems full of confidence now, the songstress revealed to The Tennessean that she hasn’t always been so self-assured. Her now signature curly blonde locks once made her an outcast by her Middle School Peers that had her eating alone at lunch.
"I tried so hard to be like everybody else and do what they did and like the things the liked," she said. "I tried so hard and it didn’t work. They still didn’t want to be friends with me; they would still leave the lunch table when I sat down. So I found that trying to be like everyone else doesn’t work.
"It’s just better to be yourself and embrace the things about yourself that are different instead of trying to cover them up."
Now that this Eighteen year old is no longer trying to fit in with the cool lunch table kids, with age she has found that there are new battles with influencial companies that have much more say than in middle school. Taylor confides however, that she will speak her mind if she isn’t comfortable with a sitation she is placed in:
"I’ve gotten (to photo shoots) and they had a wardrobe rack and the only things hanging on the wardrobe racks were bras and bustiers," she said. "I’m like, ‘Cool. Where
are the clothes?’ ‘Those are the clothes.’
"No, no, no. Let’s get clothes. I wear clothes."
On staying grounded and having positive influences and friends around:
"I don’t want to be so bored that I decide to go if someone invites me out clubbing. I don’t want to tempt myself with that because you never know what you’ll do if you are lonely enough."
