A woman who claims she attended school with Taylor Swift has revealed what the singer was like before she became famous.

Jessica McLane shared a video on TikTok in which she revealed what the singer was like before becoming famous.

Swift grew up in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, and went to Tennessee at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music.

McLane provided a high school yearbook with a photo of a young Swift as proof that she did, in fact, attend school with her.

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

And it appears that the singer was not as popular in school as she is now.

McLane stated: “When she first became extremely popular, most people despised her.

“Keep in mind that these are her classmates, not random folks on the internet.

“There were widespread allegations about her being a b***h. People would remark, ‘She said this, she said that, and she was cruel.'”

However, McLane did not mince words when it came to some of the causes for the animosity.

“Jealousy was definitely a thing,” she explained. “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 went on to say, “It’s not that these folks aren’t talented; it’s simply that most people don’t succeed.

“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 global brand.

She was selected TIME Person of the Year 2023, with the magazine claiming that she was a key component of US soft power around the world.

However, Swift’s high school ex-boyfriends are less than delighted with this.

The artist is known for mentioning her own life events in her songs, and McLane claims that some of them are upset that they were featured.

She stated, “The boys she was writing these songs about were still in school, and they were still there.

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