Demi Lovato ”I guess I’m being bullied because I’m a Woman”

Demi Lovato is coming clean about being bullied in high school in this month’s Nylon Mag. I present the juicy parts.

 Demi Lovato I guess I’m being bullied because I’m a Woman

I’m sure you’re so sick of talking about it at this point, but can you tell me about what happened?

Yeah! I was bullied, and I’m not trying to play the victim. When you’re twelve you engage in gossip, rumors, and things like that, so I wasn’t bullied for no reason. I’m sure I was a little brat back then, but no one deserves to be bullied to the extent that I was bullied. They had a ‘Demi’s Hate Wall’ in the bathroom where they wrote things like, ‘Demi is a whore’ and ‘Demi is a slut.’

Were you bullied by boys or other girls?

It was girls. It was in the girls’ bathroom. I think I had just had my first kiss a couple of months prior, so it didn’t make sense. It doesn’t bother me anymore, but they just chased me into a bathroom and had a bashing party. They had a petition and they wrote a bunch of nasty things on a piece of paper so that everyone to sign. It led to other problems down the road. At the time I was really confused as to why I was being bullied, so I just went off the things they were saying about me. I thought, ‘I guess I’m being bullied because I’m a slut.’
