Rihanna: 'I was bullied my entire school life'
Bajan beauty Rihanna has given a brand new interview to Glamour magazine and exclusively revealed that she was bullied throughout her education.
She confessed that other students at the school she attended as a youngster used to tease her and the bullying would be about a variety of things, from the size of her breasts to her race:
"I got teased my entire school life. What they were picking on I don’t even understand. It was my skin color [which was lighter than her classmates’]. Then when I got older, it was about my breasts. But I’m not victimized—I’m grateful. I think those experiences were strategically put together by God for the preparation of being in the music industry. It’s so easy for me to deal with the bullsh*t now."
The 'Diamonds' sensation also opened up about her experience of fame and explained that while she loves her fans and enjoys her career, she feels saddened at having to restrict her private life activity because of the threat of intrusion from paparazzi:
"There’s stuff like not being able to walk around as I please. I feel like I’m being watched. Always. Like, I want to tan topless somewhere, and I know I probably could never do that. Even if I’m upstairs in my bedroom, and the curtains are pulled, I feel like a paparazzo’s outside on a boat somewhere or somebody’s peeping."
