Miley Cyrus was bullied in school

It is not easy being Miley Cyrus! In her first autobiography titled 'Miles To Go', Miley Cyrus makes some revelations that might seem a bit irrelevant for all of us who have already lived all these things and just want to forget about it, but for some kids out there it might make a difference.

Miley reveals she was a victim of bullying at school by some big and mean girls, who were probably just too jealous of her and who she calls ‘The Anti-Miley Club’. Finally when Miley saw herself in a dead end, she stood up for herself.

Miley revealed: “The girls took it beyond normal bullying. These were big, tough girls. I was scrawny and short. They were fully capable of doing me bodily harm.”

The singer-and-actress - who was once locked in a bathroom by her tormentors - says they even challenged her to a fight, which had to be halted by the school principal.

She explained: “Three girls strutted up and stood towering over me. My stomach churned. I clutched my grilled cheese sandwich like it was the hand of my best friend. It pretty much was my best friend those days. I was done for.

“They started cussing me and telling me to get up. I sat there, frozen. I didn’t know what to do. Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore. I stood up, still a foot shorter then they were, and said, ‘What’s your problem? What did I ever do to you?’”

Miley might seem way too young to write an autobiography but she does have a lot to say. I would especially recommend teenagers to read it so maybe they won’t feel so alone in this world.
