Paramore’s lead singer, Hayley Williams reveals her bullying ordeal to Sugar magazine in the December 2010 issue. Williams says the torment was too much for her to endure on a day to day basis and was home schooled as an alternative:
“I went to one school for six weeks and I was miserable. Even the teachers didn’t like me. The girls were such b**ches. They would invite me to parties and I wouldn’t go because I didn’t want to be around them, then the next day at school, there would be all these rumours about me, like, ‘Hayley’s a s**t’, ‘Hayley’s gay’.
“I went home crying, saying, ‘Mum, I’m such a loser, I’m never going back’. She saw how upset I was and she was like, ‘Okay’.”
Hayley’s family had moved from Mississippi to Tennessee when she had to be pulled out. The 21 year-old did have something great come from that move: she met her future band mates Josh Farro, Zac Farro and Jeremy Davis.

Having a good body image and self esteem is tough for girls of any age and Disney star Demi Lovato wants to help other teen girls who’ve been tormented or bullied to know that there are positive people who want to encourage them. After having starred with The Jonas Brothers in Camp Rock and becoming famous overnight, Lovato has come under some scrutiny and has felt pressure to be and look like everyone else.
“I guess it’s [a challenge] just feeling beautiful, knowing that I’m different. I have a different body type than other people,” she confessed. “I’m not your typical skinny, tall girl, but I love my body that I’m in. One day I want to continue to help with bullying, or girls that feel insecure about their beauty, or things like that. I know that my purpose in life is to do more with the dreams that I have.”
Lovato has so many fans and it’s great for her to reach out to them the way she is. Don’t forget to watch her new show ‘Sonny With A Chance’.
