Taylor Swift revealed to Top Of The Pops that she wasn’t popular in school: ‘In middle school and junior high, all my friends ditched me so I was really lonely. I was doing different things at the weekend so I wasn’t part of the gang anymore.
I just wanted to play shows and I think it got really irritating to them. It’s weird, I thought I’d have so many more friends now but I feel like I’m less popular than I’ve ever been. My best friend is Abigail and we’ve been friends since I was 15.’
On relationships with boys: ‘I’ve never really been popular with the boys. I had my first boyfriend when I was 15 and we dated each other for about a year, then I was perpetually single after that.’
