I’ll start with saying I was bullied in high school. It was all a long time ago and I’m over it now, but it’s something you never really forget. To some degree, it does shape your life.
And now I’m admitting that I watch The X Factor. Well, I’m watching clips of it on YouTube, but it’s a television show and a talent show which is something I’m not suppose to like it but I do like it, so there. I’m glad to get this truth out in the open.
Jillian Jensen knows all about being bullied and the people who make The X Factor, through their direction and editing, know all about how to make life stories dramatic. They did their job well on this one. It got to me. Hell, it even got to Simon.
The video is down below. You had better watch fast as X Factor is very protective of their copyright laws. I predict it will be closed down soon, but you can always go to YouTube to watch it.
Here ya go. . .
What do you think? Did it get to you too?
I wonder if the bullies were watching Jillian sing. I wonder what was going through their heads as she poured her heart out in that song. I wonder if it will change them. I’m guessing probably not.
