A woman who went to the same school as Taylor Swift has revealed what other students really thought of the Bad Blood hitmaker.
30-year-old Jessica McLane of Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, moved to Tennessee when she was 14 years old to pursue her career in country music.
While studying at Hendersonville High School in Nashville as a freshman, McLane met Swift, 32, who was at the time in her junior year. While McLane barely talked to the singer herself, she now revealed what other students thought of her before Taylor found fame.
“I went to the same high school as Taylor Swift, we grew up in the same town,” she revealed in her viral TikTok video.
“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 claim], ‘She said this, she said that, she was mean.’”
McLane also suggested that other girls were likely jealous of Taylor because she wrote songs about local boys and got a lot of negative attention in return.
She also insisted her classmates started spreading false rumors that she had bought her fame after her career bloomed in 2005 and 2006 following her signing with Big Machine Records and her debut album called Taylor Swift.
“Jealousy was definitely a thing. 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,” McLane 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 [felt they] were vocally a lot better.”
She continued: “Also, 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?”
