3. Taylor Swift: "Bullies Inspired My Music"
Taylor Swift was bullied by a group of popular girls at school after they decided she wasn't cool enough to hang around with any more because she liked country music. But the experience ended up being a positive one for the 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer, who said it gave her motivation to write songs. She told Teen Vogue that the same girls later went to watch her live in concert: "They showed up, wearing my T-shirts and asking me to sign their CDs. It was bittersweet, because it made me realise that they didn't remember being mean to me and that I needed to forget about it, too."
