Taylor Swift’s high school classmates speak out: “Most hated her”

Taylor Swift’s latest album, “Midnights,” has stirred a fresh wave of speculation about the targets of her songs, and a TikTok user by the name Jessica McLane claiming to be a former classmate from Hendersonville High School in Tennessee has shared insights into the pop sensation’s high school years.

“In 2006, I’m a freshman in high school. Taylor is I think a junior. ‘Teardrops on my Guitar’ had just come out I think over the summer,” the tiktoker recalled.

According to McLane, when Swift began gaining massive success in the music industry at the age of 16 or 17, a significant portion of their high school classmates “hated her.”McLane emphasizes that these weren’t random internet users but peers who had witnessed the songstress journey.

McLane admits that jealousy played a significant role in the negative sentiments, especially considering their proximity to Nashville, a hub for aspiring musicians.

The young people in the area were playing in local venues, not winning awards or gaining fame. Swift’s decision to pursue a music career and her subsequent success stirred resentment among her high school peers.

In a follow-up video, McLane reinforces that her claims are based on her observations and experiences, standing by her assertion that Swift faced animosity due to her burgeoning success.

She admits she didn’t personally know Swift but emphasizes her connection to people in Taylor’s class. “The fact remains that there were not a lot of people in high school who had nice things to say about her,”McLane asserted.

The TikTok user also shares that Swift invited their entire senior class to the 2009 Country Music Association Awards (CMAs). Although the invite was unexpected, McLane acknowledges that the experience was exciting, even if the reason for the invitation remained unclear.
