Steven Tyler not only had a major drug problem — but he was also bullied as a kid growing up!
Now that he's both successful AND sober, it looks like he's getting the last laugh!!
“I was called terrible names when I was a kid. Pinhead, and n***er-lips, for a white boy who grew up in the Bronx, that’s terrible. Now I’m honored by that. (I was) beaten up, spit at, (called) queer. So we got a band together.”
Why do kids (and people in general) have to be so cruel??
It serves NO purpose, and it can destroy lives!!
We're so glad it did the opposite for Steven — it inspired him to prove everyone wrong! So fab!
