Just Jared Jr: The 19-year-old British popstar just recently donated her new song, “Get Weak” to a bullying charity to raise awareness about the issue. The song will become the anthem for Beatbullying’s Big March, a global online protest campaign. Pixie shared, “As an ambassador of Beatbullying I know that anyone can be a victim of bullying - it’s not embarrassing! Tall or short, skinny or big, they always find something to pick at. Don’t let them win. If you’re determined to make it, you can and you will.” (Pixie Lott Donates 'Get Weak' To Anti-Bullying).

Bullying is an abusive treatment, the use of force or coercion to affect others, particularly when habitual and involving an imbalance of power. It may involve verbal harassment, physical assault or coercion and may be directed persistently towards particular victims, perhaps on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability. The "imbalance of power" may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a "targeted individual" (Wikipedia).
