[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Madonna[/lastfm] is outraged at the recent teen suicides related to bullying. She spoke out yesterday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“I’m incredibly disturbed and saddened by the overwhelming number of teen suicides that have been reported lately because of bullying.”
She also said she use to feel like an outsider saying “I can totally relate to the idea of feeling isolated and alienated. I was incredibly lonely as a child, as a teenager. I have to say I never felt like I fit in in school. I wasn’t a jock. I wasn’t an intellectual. There was no group that I felt a part of. I just felt like a weirdo.”
Madonna also noted that she wouldn’t have a career if it weren’t for her gay fans. She was clearly genuinely upset about the bullying of gay teens. “The concept that we are torturing teenagers because they are gay…It’s unfathomable. It’s like lynching black people or Hitler exterminating Jews. Sorry if I’m going on a rampage right now but this is America. The land of the free and the home of the brave.”
