Selena Gomez Bullying

Can you believe the girl who seemingly has it all used to get tortured by her fellow peers when she was in elementary school?

We cannot imagine Selena Gomez ever getting picked on a day in her life! She’s beautiful, well put-together and best of all — humble and gracious! However, things haven’t always been smooth sailing for the 19-year-old starlet — and she recently opened up about her tumultuous time as a kid.

“I was bullied every second of every day in elementary and middle school,” Selena told Cleveland.com in a new segment called “Ask the Artist.” “Obviously, people are going to bring you down because of your drive. But, ultimately, it makes you a stronger person to turn your cheek and go the other way.”

Selena said her best friend, Demi Lovato, who also was bulled, helped her during her tough times. “It’s nice that you have a best friend to go through this with,” she said. “I had a best friend to go through that with and it really helped me ignore negative things I was hearing. So, don’t take no for an answer and keep going.

Have you — or your family and friends — ever been bullied? What’s the best way to handle it?
