Charice tells cyberbullied girls: "if they say 'you're ugly,' it’s just a word-it's never gonna kill you"

( After her recent run-in with detractors on social networking sites, international singing sensation Charice spoke out against cyberbullying, reports The celebrity news website caught up with the singer at the Lifesavers Gummies at Bowlmore Lanes in Times Square last June 14.

When asked about the  negative sentiments written about her on Facebook and Twitter, Charice said, "It is just part of [using social media]... You just have to be strong about it. It's just words coming out of other people, if they say ’you're ugly,’ it's just a word-it's never (going to) kill you."

Despite the online adversity, Charice remains a perennial Twitter user. "Twitter is really addicting... It's fun to share stuff... It's a great way to promote stuff," she said.

Charice, who just finished filming the Hollywood movie Here Comes the Boom with Salma Hayek, also opened up about her co-stars' Twitter use. "It's funny because every time I go to the set everybody talks about Twitter. Henry (Winkler)-he is really cute-is like 'Oh, Charice's fan tweeted at me,' and Salma (Hayek) is like 'What's Twitter?'" she said, adding that Hayek was not into tweeting.
