Elton John revealed that he had suffered nasty abuse as an adult, thanks to people who took advantage of him because he was shy. So bullying knows no age boundaries.
He told E!, "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."
While he kept his bullying a secret, he encourages those who are victims of the same torment to do something different. He said. "Speak out, speak out. Snitch on them. Try to defend yourself, not like me, who hid it and thought it was OK to just go on like it."
What do you think of Sir Elton John's advice against bullies?
