I was bullied as a kid, says Justin Bieber

April 12, 2012 - Washington

Justin Bieber has admitted that he fell victim to tormentors before becoming famous.

The 18-year-old heartthrob has also lent his single 'Born to Be Somebody' to a US documentary on school bullying.

"'I was bullied. Most people in their lifetime have been bullied at some point. I think that it's about time that people start making a change," Contactmusic quoted him as telling 'Showbiz Tonight'.

The film, titled 'Bully', looks at the issue through the eyes of five youngsters, and the 'Boyfriend' hitmaker believes it has the potential to make a real difference.

"'A lot of the time, principals let it go, or teachers let it go, or other students just let it go, but I think this movie's really powerful and can help change a lot of lives," he said.

Meanwhile, he even urged those who witness bullying, as well as those who experience it first-hand, to share the problem with someone and seek help.

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