Taylor Swift tries to help her fans tackle bullying.
The 23-year-old star - who was singled out and picked on at school in Pennsylvania - gives her biggest fans the chance to meet after her 'Red' gigs and uses her platform as an artist to help them discuss inclusion issues they may face.
She told Top of the Pops magazine: ''After the show we pick fans randomly and they're brought backstage into this amazing tent called Club Red. I go in with about 35 to 40 fans and hear what's going on in their lives - whether someone's picking on them at school or if someone had a party and invited every single girl in the class but them. It happened to me, and that's why as an artist, you should try and help people one-on-one.''
Taylor - who is on the Oceania leg of her world tour where she will be performing in New Zealand at the end of the month - previously took to the stage with former 'X Factor' contestant Cher Lloyd and Ellie Goulding during her US performances and she gushed about her time with them.
She added: ''Ellie [Goulding] is so talented. I thought she was perfect. Cher Lloyd was amazing. It looked like we'd planned all kinds of moves but we were just moving on the same beats.''
