Demi Lovato, ‘Bullies Made Me Cry’

demilovatopurplebootsperfeft-89_0


Demi Lovato on bullying: ‘Bullying is something I went through when I was 12 years old. I actually ended up leaving school because of it. I just remember the hard times that I went through that caused problems that I struggle with every day to this day. I was bottling it up 100 per cent and one day I was in a bathroom

and the lights were out, I couldn’t turn them on because you had to have a key in a separate part of the school. I just called my mom and I was crying and I said ‘I don’t want to go to school any more’. It was a rough time I was by myself. I home schooled with Selena so she was a good friend to me then and she still is.’

    Oh and Demi
    at least you had a phone
    to call your mommie.
    But others had to fake a stomachache
    and such just to go home
    and some parents don’t believe
    in homeschool.
    So they have to live with bullying
    they’re whole life in school.

    So I know how it feels.

    hah. in some countries like mine, home schooling isn’t legal unless your parents are teachers. it’s a shame, we’re also not allowed phones in school, we’re not even allowed to be sent home during school hours, even if we’re sick. ;/ but yeah, i know how bullying feels, i’m sure everybody has been a victim at some point in their lives.

    I was bullied. Yes, it’s terrible but seriously Demi. STOP TALKING ABOUT IT. You’re letting the bullies win by constantly wining. Just let it go.

    1. “sorry but that girl is a drama queen” – NO! She is trying to help others who are dealing with the same problems that she had, that’s why she talks about it. Like diabetes is Nick big cause, fight against bullying is Demi’s cause.
    2. She probably was asked about that, so what should she have said? “Sorry but my haters on OcenUp are tired of me talking about bullying”?
    3. Glad too see a young person like Demi (and Nick, for example) trying to help others. People here should do the same instead of hating on who is doing it.

    so she was a good friend to me then and she still is.

    Boo you, whore.

    Everyone gets bullied at some time or another. There’s not one person who doesn’t go through it at least once.And there is no “I got bullied worse than you” contest going on. Demi is a national spokesperson for an anti-bullying campaign, so she has to talk about it alot! I just wish would talk about different experinces instead of the same old thing over and over…
