He may be one of Pop’s more confident performers, acquiring legions of loyal fans with his hit singles ‘Whatcha Say‘ and ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home‘ but according to singer/songwriter Jason Derulo he was the victim of bullying as a child because of his passion for music.
More information below…
The performer, whose latest LP ‘Future History‘ hits stores September 27th revealed:
I was prone to taunts when I was younger because I was into singing. But I’m a pretty big guy and when that stuff happened to me, I didn’t back down – I got into fights all the time.
Going onto explain:
If you’re being bullied, you do have to put a stop to it straight away because if you do back down, it’s them winning and they’ll do it more. Stand up to it and it’ll go away because bullies don’t want to fight, they just want to show off.
In the words of a certain Jessie J– ‘Who’s Laughing Now?’.
