Justin Bieber: I was bullied

Los Angeles - Justin Bieber was bullied as a child.

The 18-year-old heartthrob - who has leant his single Born to Be Somebody to a US documentary on school bullying - admits he fell victim to tormentors before becoming famous.

He said: "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."

The film, titled Bully looks at the issue through the eyes of five youngsters, and the Boyfriend hitmaker believes it has the potential to make a real difference.

'Teachers let it go'

He told Showbiz Tonight: "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."

Meanwhile, he urges those who witness bullying, as well as those who experience it first-hand, to share the problem with someone and seek help.

He said: "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."
