London: Teen sensation Justin Bieber says he was tormented as a child.
The 18-year-old heartthrob, who has given his single `Born to Be Somebody` to a US documentary on school bullying, said he fell victim to tormentors before becoming famous, Femalefirst reported.
"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," he said.
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.
"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."
