A victim of bullying during her school days, Demi Lovato admits she sometimes still receives nasty blog comments from people even though she's no longer a seventh grader. "Sometimes [bullying] doesn't just end in high school," so she writes on her MySpace blog. "Sometimes I get online and read blogs (which I probably shouldn't if I can't handle it) and read the horrible things that people say in comments ... and it can really take a toll on you."
Sticking to her commitment to help other young girls who are bullied or harassed by their friends, Demi offers some wise words, writing "So as a message to everyone, please keep in mind when you're about to threaten someone or make fun of them or leave blog comments about them, that what you say or do can truly affect someone." She also adds, "Cheesy and lame as it may sound, never forget the golden rule."
In an interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last month, Demi admitted she used to be bullied as a seventh grader that later forced her parents to homeschool her. "I never really understood why it was at the moment until looking back. I had a different lifestyle than everyone else. Whether it was because of my hair color or what ever the reason was, I pinned it on myself," she shared to Ellen DeGeneres about the reason why she was bullied.
She thus has vowed to help other young girls who have the same experience with her, now that she has become famous. "I guess the way that I want to impact girls as a ... role model - It's not me not making mistakes because I'm going to make mistakes but one day I want to help with bullying. Because there are girls who can't just up and home school and focus on their career," she stated.
