These days, Taylor Swift is…not cool, exactly, but incredibly popular in a nerdy way, like the first flute in the school band who never forgets anyone’s birthday.

Back in 2005, however, Taylor was just like the rest of us – discovering this new thing called social media, and being totally embarrassing on it.

Okay, that might be a bit harsh, especially since Taylor was only in high school at the time, but it’s nice to know that someone who brings every celebrity on the planet on stage when she goes on tour was, not that long ago, a MySpace dweeb who gushed about her friends’ boobs and begged people to take down embarrassing photos.

In addition to the photos below, Taylor posted the following hilarious comments on the ‘Space:

  • December 28, 2005: "Just a little reminder to you that even though the semester is over, I’m still obsessed with you…haha f–k sewing machines."
  • October 12, 2005: "Everybody watch Kelsey’s scrolling pictures of her friends until you get to the one of Shelby. Her boobs look AMAZING!"
  • Februay 4, 2004: "THAT PICTURE OF ME AT THE TOP IS GROSS. THAT IS SICK TAKE IT DOWN. It serves NO purpose other than to make me look FUGLY. I want it off NOW. but I loooove you."
  • Decemnber 16, 2005: "I’m Grant Motherf–king Wood. I do whatever I want and say the word "durr."

Yo, she just went in on American Gothic painter Grant Wood! If he hadn’t passed away at an early age in 1942, homey would be piiiiiissed.

We kid. Obviously, Taylor is talking about some other Grant Wood, who was probably the subject of her first angry heartbreak ballad.

The important thing is that this is the real teen Taylor – the Taylor we’ve heard about in stories from her friends and her first guitar teacher, not the squeaky-clean version her management team tried to present us with early in her career.

We like this Taylor. She might go off ya boy Grant, but she will not forget your birthday.
