A lot of celebs lately have been taking a stand against bullying – and Madonna is one of them.
Feeling “isolated and alienated” from other children at school, Madonna felt like a “weirdo.” She spoke about her school experience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“I can totally relate to the idea of feeling isolated and alienated,” she said. “I was incredibly lonely as a child, as a teenager. I have to say I never felt like I fit in, in school. I wasn’t a jock. I wasn’t an intellectual. There was no group that I felt a part of. I just felt like a weirdo.”
She even expressed her deep concern for the rise in teen suicides in the U.S.
“I’m incredibly disturbed and saddened by the overwhelming number of teen suicides that have been reported lately because of bullying,” she said.
“Teenagers committing suicide is extremely disturbing, but to hear that teenagers are taking their lives because they are being bullied in schools and dormitories is kind of unfathomable.”
So is Madonna worried about her own kids being bullied? She says she makes an effort to educate her children — Lourdes, 13, Rocco, ten, and adopted David Banda, five, and Mercy James, four — on their social responsibilities and not judging others.
