Taylor Swift has been vocal about her painful childhood, being bullied by her schoolmates. But a new throwback photo from the pop superstar — who grew up in suburban Pennsylvania before finding fame in Nashville and the rest of the world — shows that she may have brought some of the teasing upon herself. 

On Wednesday, Oct. 28, the “Blank Space” singer, 25, shared an adorable throwback photo of herself from a long-ago Halloween via Instagram. 

“When you dress as the yellow teletubby for Halloween, but it's before Teletubbies got huge so all the kids at school ask you why you're dressed as a yellow pregnant alien,” she captioned the funny pic of herself in the large costume, holding a Teletubby doll.

Nowadays, Swift has a whole posse of supermodels and superstars to go trick-or-treating with (read: to bake cookies with) and she’s known for getting into the spooky holiday.

Last year Swift dressed as a pegacorn (a unicorn with wings) for an appearance at the Z100 studios in NYC while promoting the new release of her album 1989. 

"Cause, darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a PEGACORN. #HappyHalloween!" she captioned a cute Instagram at the time.
