7. Bullied

During her teen years, she was bullied. “I would have girls wait for me outside of school with pipes, to beat me up. They were picking on me because their boyfriends would look at me on the way home,” she told Ellen Degeneres. “Then it got worse. By the time I got to high school, the girls were throwing pies at my face, pulling out my hair, spitting on me. The worst part was when they lit my hair on fire on the bus.”
