4. Taylor Swift

Would you believe that the “Shake It Off” singer was picked on in school? Swift remembers the cruelty saying, “Junior high was actually sort of hard because I got dumped by this group of popular girls. They didn’t think I was cool or pretty enough, so they stopped talking to me, the kids at school also thought it was weird that I liked country music. They’d make fun of me.” Swift says the bullying forced her to spend hours inside playing the guitar until her fingers bled, but her hard work has definitely paid off. In 2011, Swift’s music video for her anti-bullying song “Mean” dealt with homophobia in high schools and was nominated for an MTV VMA social activism award.
