Elton John Bullied Despite Fame and Money

 

It seems bullying is a growing concern these days.

From ordinary teenagers being bullied in school to celebrities being bullied by bashers and haters on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, bullying is a real issue that someone you might know actually goes through and is currently dealing with.

Just recently, Sir Elton John himself has revealed that he was bullied even after becoming famous by some “important” people in his life and career.

Sir Elton admits that he was tormented by some of the key players in his career, and was even hit by one, saying, “It was about control and them being able to keep me under their thumb, and I was the perfect candidate for it. Even though I was famous and a big deal, it doesn’t matter, it’s who you are underneath that, and I was always kind of shy and intimidated.”

“One was violent and the other two were mentally violent. They were very important people in my life. They were important people in my career and in my personal life,” he added.

Thus, Sir Elton, who is working on an anti-bullying campaign with Lady Gaga, urges victims to tell someone if they are being targeted.
“Speak out, speak out. Snitch on them. Try to defend yourself, not like me, who hid it and thought it was okay to just go on like it.”
