Although Cody Simpson has become an international phenomenon, the Australian singer once was a victim of bullying. That’s why he has joined the anti-bullying movement Defeat the Label, along with Miley Cyrus and Paula Abdul.
“I’ve seen the severity of bullying, just being a regular kid coming from a regular school, it’s a bigger problem for kids my age than drugs and alcohol,” he told SMH.
“I was teased a little bit for choosing a career path that not many kids do, a lot of kids were doing other things like joining the rugby team but music was just something I loved.
“I just learned very early to not care what other people think, the music teacher at my old school used to let me into the music room when everyone else was running off to do other things as it was just something that I loved.”
Look whose laughing now bullies.
