Katy Perry’s message to victims of bullying: 'Be proud of who you are'

Katy Perry has taken to Instagram to write a lengthy message to any of her fans who are experiencing bullying.

Perry began by saying: "Be proud of who you are. Recently, I've been getting a lot of comments and tweets from fans who are struggling with self harm or being a victim of bullying. Which brings tears to my eyes. I want you to be strong. There's only one you in this world, embrace it."

The ‘Teenage Dream’ songstress reassured fans that their situation will improve in the future: "Trust me, when you grow up and become successful those bullies will WISH they were friends with you and were nice to you. Karma will do payback to them, just watch."

She also gives some practical advice of how to deal with bullies: "When they bully again, just laugh at their faces or simply say I don't care. If they see it bothers you, they'll continue. If they see that you don't care and that it doesn't bother you, they'll stop! Simple! Stand up for yourself. Make those bullies look stupid. If it gets bad, you can simply tell the authority at school."

The American pop star also addressed the topic of self harm by saying: "It's horrible to me. Don't ruin your skin, I think your skin is beautiful. Putting scars on your wrists or anywhere else is just heartbreaking for me. Cutting yourself doesn't fix anything. Please, just stop. For me, for your family, for your friends, for you."
