Scoring an interview with the December issue of Women's Health, Taylor Swift opens up about her school days, admitting she was a victim of bullying when she was still a high school student. She recalls the past experience, telling the magazine that many of her friends thought she was "weird" and would keep a distance from her.

"[Growing up on a Christmas tree farm] was basically a shunning - and that's never a good thing, you know?" she says. "A lot of girls thought I was weird. Actually, the word they liked to use was annoying. I'd sit at their lunch table and they'd move to a different one."

Not being bullied ever since she became famous, Taylor however finds out that she has more friends when she was still in senior high school compared to when she is a famous singer. "It's funny - I thought my contact list in my phone would grow if I was in the music industry. But I had more people in my phone book when I was in high school!" so she openly reveals.

As for her first job, Taylor doesn't mention exactly what it was. But the fact that she began writing her first song when she was still 8 years old has earned her enough money to buy herself a Lexus 430 SC convertible, the vehicle that she still drives.

Taylor Swift graces the cover of the December issue of Women's Health in gray top and dark blue jeans. She is seen in the cover wearing sheer make up.
