I was bullied, says Jessie J

SINGER Jessie J has revealed she was bullied as a child. The Price Tag singer has told of how school bullies would throw stones at her.

Jessie said she was bullied while attending East London's Mayfield School in Redbridge.

Jessie said that classmates were "horrible" to her and would "throws stones at my head" for being different.

The chart-topper, who appeared as a guest judge in the judges' houses section on X Factor this year alongside pal Tulisa, told fans that being bullied "makes you special".

The raven-haired beauty has been reportedly signed up by the BBC to become a coach and mentor on their version of The Voice, a rival to Simon Cowell's juggernaut X Factor series.

The singer, who bagged the Brit Awards Critics Choice award earlier this year, opened up about her troubled past in Cosmopolitan magazine.
