Quote of the Day

| Filed under: Quote of the DayTaylor Swift


"The best thing you can do in school is to not try to be too cool. My friends and I took pride in the fact that we were the weirdest girls at our school. We never fit in with the cool girls because we didn’t really care what people thought. We has so much fun goofing off and being being crazy. We would go out to dinner in our prom dress, accessorized with scarves, fingerless gloves and costume jewelry. Sometimes we’d draw a beauty mark on our faces, wear a tiara and funny slippers. We didn’t care!"

- Taylor Swift tells Tiger Beat

  20. 20

  23. 23

    OMG TIGER BEAT IS STILL AROUND!!!! how long is that? 30+ years at least? bet perez still has a subscription so he gets his little boy dose. hey perez, in sacramento today? dressed like the good humor man?

  24. 24

    Thats false humility. She took pride in trying to be weird. It's no different than trying to be cool.

  25. 25

    I have this "uncool in school" thing in common with her, but I don't like her.
    Still don't like her. I think fame has changed her, she's a bit more full of herself and even more annoying.

  26. 26

    Yay Taylor! My friends and I were weird in high school too.

  27. 27

    Is she in Germany?????????

  30. 30

  31. @v@ says – reply to this


    Perez knows good parenting when he sees it.

  32. 32

    Tiger Beat? That mag is still around?
    She is a cutie

  33. 33

    Re: _Alice_ – I think she is in Deutchland………no

  34. 34

    Yes, she's absolutely right, teenagers nowadays don't exhibit NEARLY enough attention-seeking behavior. I suppose it's better than whoring around, though…

  35. 35

    wait. isn't she still 15? … shouldn't she be in school? or have i missed something..?

  36. 36

    Chris Brown was found beating Ri Ri with a Rolled up Tiger Beat Mag…..

    Re: sianxoxo – Hey Hottie…. i think she is twenty…..LOL
    Yer good………..

  38. 38

    It always kills me that the pretty rich successful celebrities claim to have been the nerds in school! Bitch please!

  39. 39

    i love taylor swift, she so cool :D

  40. 40


  41. 41

    I wore pink fuzzy slippers to school once…I was just as Taylor described, wearing tutus and rhinestone jackets and shit. Anyway one day one of my pink fuzzy slippers came off and a jock threw it at me. It hit me in the face. Then he threw jello at me - that hit me in the face too. I'd love to say this is wonderful advice, as much as I love Taylor…but seriously, it made me want to kill myself. Better to just fit in.

  42. 42

    LOVEEEE Taylor Swift she is SO right! The most happy girls in school are those who arent always trying to fit in + be cool. It's sad that so many kids feel they have to be a certain way to be considered cool + popular! Just have fun with your friends be goofy don't care so much what others think of you………who really cares seriously?! lol ps. Taylor Swift is such a good role model we need more girls like this!

  43. 43

    not trying to be cool is good but…going out to dinner in crazy outfits? that's a little bit strange…

  44. 44

    I went to school with Taylor from 7th to 10th grade. She was pretty much the exact opposite of what she said. She was also a total bitch.

  45. DaLa says – reply to this


    "didn't care"? Huh? The behavior she describes is SO pretentious and affected.

  46. 46

    Re: Fifi Belle – not true.

  47. Sonas says – reply to this


    I tried to like her.. I really did.. but she's so annoying talking about what she was like in school more than once.

  48. 48

    Re: Long Dong Connery – right, got my information mixed up there then!!

  49. 49

    Barfity barf barf.

  50. 50

    Stupid ass nasty bitch …when is she going to get her own advice talk show to tell the poor little teens what to do. Sheep

  51. 51

    that's most likely bullshit, but i like her, do your thing girl!

  52. 52

    :::: will taylor stay skinny 4 ever?? :::: www.ThisIsWhyYoureSkinny.com

  53. 53


  54. 54

    Right on, Taylor! Most people are way too self-conscious to not walk in lock step with the herd. I had fun doing it my way in high school, too.

  55. 55

    Still she is the WEIRD KID of Country… what a nasty looking face…

  56. 56

    she was one of those loser girls that made up for being uncool by being the weird creepy girls hah.

  57. 57

    yea alright she was a loser than an is still a loser now shes no different than the other kids except instead of being a whore she acted like a freak

  58. 58

    When she is 20 will she still behave as a 12 year old girl???

  59. 59

    now THAT is trying too hard.

  60. 60

    god i love that girl

  61. 61

    lol. love her even more

  62. 62

    Barf, she's a mean girl trying to be cool. They obviously wanted attention and DID care what other's thought. Why else would she put so much effort into being "weird".

  63. 63

    Oh, please. Yeah, you're so alternative Taylor. Come on, is anyone actually buying that crap she's saying just to reach out to all the "weird kids" now?

  64. 64

    "We has so much fun goofing off…."
    it should be we HAD

  65. 65

    Oh and I don't want to forget to mention JUST MAYBE having tight, wet, little PUs*IES didn't hurt either?

  66. 66

    Taylor Swift is awesome….She doesn't give a crap about what people thinks of her……..

  67. 67

    i didn't know why i just didn't like her…now i know

  68. =] says – reply to this


    not too long ago before she was this famous, on her myspace she talked about how she hated dressing up and how she was more of a jeans kind of girl. she's just seems so fake to me…and the people who tend to talk about how they don't/didn't care are the ones who care the most. what's so cool about dressing like a 3 year old playing tea party anyway?

  69. 69

    It's one thing to be quirky and fun. It's another thing to just be a dork-ass begging for attention. Maybe you weren't cool at school because you were annoying as fuck… and if you really didn't care how mean the girls were to you, you wouldn't mention it in EVERY magazine interview that you do.

  70. 70

    oh, come ON. It is so "in" to be weird right now it makes me sick. Taylor was obviously one of the "cool" girls. Just LOOK at her. Don't try to be "cool" now by trying to be weird, hun. Not falling for it . . . you're as girly and wholesome American girl as they come.

  71. 71

    I really hope she's still friends with them…

  72. 72

    i don't get it at one point she is using the whole "i was bullied in school" thing for symapthy and now she's saying she doesn't care
    …..so does she want to try to makes us feel srry for her
    teamm joee

  73. 73

    blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

    i bet that's all bullshit. She's trying to hard to be the cute modest good girl. BORING. what a loser. haha

  74. Low says – reply to this


    There is a difference between being young and looking like a nutcase Taylor. If you don't care what people think .. then what do you, or what did you care about besides looking weird??

    Trust me… nobody like a weird attention seeking snotnose kid. Try and pull that now.. you are still young. See what you get…. A front page story saying you have gone nuts ala 'Brittney style. Not to cool is it?

  75. 75

    'we were cool, because we didnt try to be cool, and now i an cool' oh shutup

  76. 76

    Re: sharre – I know her BFF (in real life, not just on myspace) and I've seen the pictures of them doing this. It's true.

    Re: =] – When I was 16 I didn't wear anything BUT tshirts and jeans. Now, at 20, I love to get dressed up and I wear a dress for any occasion that I possibly can, which is why I can't wait for summer because they're appropriate all the time.

  77. 77

    "We didn't care!"
    well, neither do we.
    god she's creepy looking. she looks 60 yrs old.

  78. 78

    Re: Sonas – She talks about EVERYTHING over and over and over.

    Congrats to her tho….

  79. 79

    Conformity leads to mediocrity. Look at all the bitter people on Perez with their average job, average house, average income, etc. Never happy about yourself or other people, but at least you fit in, eh?

  80. 80

    She talks as if she's longggggg past her highschool years. Is she 30 or something? I thought she was 15.

  81. Laxer says – reply to this


    We didn't care? How funny….all the time you took to draw attention to yourself does not portray someone who doesn't care; it shows someone who cares desparately for the spotlight. I would probably retire this story.
