Macy Gray:'The Kids Used To Call Me Watermelon Head'
Macy Gray was teased by her peers as a kid because of her huge skull - cruel classmates dubbed her 'Watermelon Head'.
The I Try hit-maker towered over her school pals and spent most of her teens being teased for reaching 5 foot 11 inches by the time she was 12 years old. And Gray admits she was left with a less-than-flattering moniker after bullies decided to point out her overgrown head.
She tells U.K. TV show Loose Women, "I'm 5' 11in. When I was a kid - other kids find something to pick on you about, mine was my height. I've been this height since I was in sixth grade, (maybe) seventh grade. I've always been tall. I had big feet, you know when you're not in proportion yet. My head was oversized. All the kids used to call me Watermelon Head. It's terrible. It all kind of grew into place a couple of years ago really."
