British singer Patrick Wolf credits playground bullying with giving him the mental toughness to succeed in the music industry. The 24-year-old had some unhappy times growing up, but maintains bullies have made him a stronger person. Wolf recalls, "Some b**stard tried to stab me in the leg during assembly to see if I would scream and make a fool of myself. Things like that make you harder. "You realise there are b**stards and beautiful people in the world, and you have to try and move towards the latter."
