    That was sweet.

    I do, however, sometimes have a hard time believing these always-been-beautiful stars who claim to have been bullied in junior high/high school, etc. I've seen what Taylor Swift looked like when she was in middle school; I doubt her gorgeous (at least what teenage boys consider gorgeous) self really experienced any bullying. She also signed her first record contract at 13. If anyone picked on her after that, they were beyond stupid.

    I feel that way as well but sometimes people get picked on or ostracized because of envy. Taylor Swift is pretty but sometimes she comes off as kind of goofy or gangly to me.

    Taylor grew up about an hour away and her being bullied was a big topic of conversation in the media as she was starting to "make it." I recall interviews of kids from her school who talked about how bad she was treated by a group of kids. Taylor knew what she wanted to do, was actively performing and getting attention. That seems to have upset some girls at her school. Then they moved and that ended the bullying.

    leann may have been bullied but i doubt that someone threatened her with a knife. but i bet she was a braggart who taunted the other kids as well.

    I have a nephew who recently took a leave from his Sr year of high school because he was being bullied. He's a handsome talented young man. A talented musician. The last person I ever thought would be bullied but he was. I guess it shows that the person you least expect can be bullied.

    Hope that made sense.

    It does make sense, and I hate to hear that happened. I understand it can happen to anyone; there is no rhyme or reason to cruelty. I just think people (especially celebrities)tend to overuse the term these days. One mean comment is not bullying; it's usually just someone being an asshole. It seems it's kind of the hip thing to talk about how badly one was bullied, how they were the ugly duckling, etc.
