Susan Boyle'Britain's Got Talent' sensation Susan Boyle sat down with Oprah Winfrey on Tuesday to give her take on the hot-button issue of the day: bullying. The operatic singer, there to promote her book 'The Woman I Was Born to Be,' recounted growing up in Scotland with taunts for being different.

Winfrey, seizing on the issue, asked Boyle what kinds of things bullies would do to her. Things like "burning my clothes with a cigarette" and being "hit on the head" were par for the course.

"That is the physical, but the more hurtful is the psychological," Boyle said. "Name-calling. Really repeating name-calling. It made me feel as if nobody loved me. I didn't really matter. I was just a target. Once you give bullies that power, they've really got a hold on you."
