Biebs’ Bully Hell

The Singer Opens Up About His Childhood Ordeal...

Justin Bieber has revealed he was a victim of bullying before he became famous.

The 18-year old, who has leant his song
‘Born To Be Somebody,’
to a US documentary entitled ‘Bully,’ has spoken out about his ordeal, stating it's time to make a stand against tormentors.

Speaking to Showbiz Tonight, Biebs confessed,

"I was bullied. Most people in their lifetime have been at some point. I think it's about time that people start making a change.

"A lot of the time, principals let it go, teachers let it go, other students just let it go ... I think [Bully] is really powerful and can help change a lot of lives."

He added, "If you're a bystander, too, tell somebody, because a lot of times, it's just not spoken of, and you ended up keeping it all inside, and it just hurts even more."
