Taylor Swift Stands Up For A Bullied Teen – Read Her Heartfelt Message Here!

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals
Taylor Swift took a break from her busy schedule recently to reach out to a bullied teen online named Hannah who was about to start another difficult school year and begin high school. Taylor sent the teen a beautiful, heartfelt message on Instagram that will bring tears to your eyes. Taylor writes,

“Reading this made me so sad because I love seeing you in your videos and photos being so happy and wide eyed, like the world isn’t as harsh and unfair as it actually is. I hate thinking about your pretty face covered in tears, but I know why you’re crying because I’ve been in your place. This isn’t a high school thing or an age thing. It’s a people thing. A life thing. It doesn’t stop. It doesn’t end or change.

People cut other people down for entertainment, amusement, out of jealousy, because of something broken inside them. Or for no reason at all. It’s just what they do, and you’re a target because you live your life loudly and boldly. You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical. They won’t understand you and they won’t understand me.

But the only way they win is if your tears turn to stone and make you bitter like them. It’s okay to ask why. It’s okay to wonder how you could try so hard and still get stomped all over. Just don’t let them change you or stop you from singing or dancing around to your favorite song.

You’re going into high school this week and this is your chance to push the reset button on how much value you give the opinion of these kids, most of whom have NO idea who they are. I’m so proud of you and protective of you because you DO. If they don’t like you for being yourself, be yourself even more.

Every time someone picks on me, I’ll think of you in the hopes that every time someone picks on you, you’ll think of me… and how we have this thread that connects us. Let them keep living in the darkness and we’ll keep walking in the sunlight.

Forever on your side, Taylor.”

We think it is wonderful that Taylor shared such a powerful bond with a fan who was having a hard time. As so many of our readers head back to school this week, remember to always be yourself and if someone judges you don’t let it change who you are as a person. Keep going, keep persevering and make your dreams come true despite the odds. Always remember to “Shake If Off,” stay strong, and know that it gets better!

Kevin Jonas Returns Home To His Girls, Promptly Invents New Sport With Baby Alena — Watch Now!

Kevin Jonas + Alena Rose

After a quick trip to Los Angeles to attend a couple of pre-Oscar parties (including one benefiting Artists for Peace and Justice, which he co-hosted), Kevin Jonas returned home to his wife Danielle and daughter Alena Rose on Friday (February 28) — and not a second too soon!

Kevin told E! News on the red carpet at the Hollywood Domino and Bovet 1822 Gala that he missed one of Alena’s firsts while away from home: “It is my first time away from being a father. You know, it’s amazing having a daughter that every minute you want to be with her. And of course she does something awesome. Like she found her thumb yesterday so she started sucking her thumb yesterday and I wasn’t there. I didn’t see it and I was like, ‘UGH!’ but it’s good.”

Danielle couldn’t resist posting the picture of their reunion (seen above) with the caption: “Daddy’s home! #lovehimsomuch”. And after a good cuddle with his daughter, Kevin couldn’t resist creating a new sport with the help of his brother-in-law Brian Gonsar — baby stroller curling! Seems like some people really got into the Winter Olympics this time around!

Although Kevin called it “new dad fun,” Danielle wasn’t as amused as her husband, Brian, and her sister Dina (who filmed the whole thing) were. Check out the hilarious and adorable video and Dani’s Instagram comment in response below now:
