Madonna speaks up against bullying

The Material Girl speaks up against bullying in schools on the Ellen Show

Madonna has appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres' show to speak up against bullying and the string of teen suicides that have recently taken place in the US.

The singer opened up about her feelings of inadequacy when she was at school, saying that she didn't fit in and often felt like the "weirdo".

Madonna also spoke against homophobia, saying: "To hear that teenagers are taking their lives because they're being bullied in schools and dormitories, is kind of unfathomable." She continued: "The gay community has been incredibly supportive of me — I wouldn't have a career if it weren't for the gay community."

Madonna is just one of a string of celebrities speaking up against bullying.
