TIM McGRAW: Speaks Up Against Bullying
Tim McGraw surprised the kids at a middle school near Nashville this week to talk about the problem of bullying. At the assembly, he encouraged students to be kind to one another, speak up if they see someone being bullied and not to become bullies.
Tim, who came to the school at the invitation of his 11-year-old nephew, tells Nashville's Tennesean, "I think it's important for the students to hear. Anything I can do to stop bullying is what I'll do."

Taylor Swift has grown up a lot in the past few years -- especially in the romance department. She tells Glamour magazine, "I look for someone who has passions that I respect, like his career. Someone who loves what he does is really attractive. In high school, I used to think it was like sooooo cool if a guy had an awesome car. Now none of that matters. These days I look for character and honesty and trust."
The issue of Glamour with Taylor on the cover hits newsstands Tuesday.
