Justin Bieber is a pop sensation, the music industry’s current “it” boy — and a victim of bullying, he says. Watch as the teen singer tells Showbiz Tonight about his experience.
As a victim of bullies before, Justin Bieber understands the importance of getting the message out behind the movie “Bully”. He has now lent his song “Born to Be Somebody” to be featured in the movie trailer.
“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. 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.”
And like many other celebs, J.B. urges those who get tormented to speak out.
“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.”
