Demi Lovato’s Downward Spiral

Posted on | November 10, 2010 | 5 Comments

Once you get dumped by Joe Jonas, you need something for the pain:

She was doing line after line [of cocaine] like a pro — and she was 17 at the time.

Let’s see: Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Demi Lovato . . . Is there an ex-Disney child star who hasn’t turned into a celebrity basket case yet?

Does anyone want to bet that, within a year, Miley Cyrus will either be (a) busted for DUI, (b) hospitalized for rehab, or (c) both?

Double-or-nothing if she ends up dating Keith Olbermann.

UPDATE: One of my Twitter friends remarked: “What does Disney do to those girls? Did Hayley Mills ever have problems?”

For benefit of younger readers, it is perhaps necessary to explain that Hayley Mills was the star of a number of wholesome old-time Disney movies, including the 1961 original version of The Parent Trap.

So, did Hayley Mills have problems? According to Wikipedia: In 1971, at age 25, she married the 58-year-old man who had directed her in a 1966 movie. They divorced a few years later, and Mills eventually became a Hare Krishna.

Not quite the drugs-DUI-and-rehab trip of latter-day Disney girsl, but I guess Mills’ bio might qualify as “problems.”

    Disney is not good, wholesome, moral, or family-oriented. Their entertainment preaches atheism, Leftism, multi-culti bull, antiamericanism, anticapitalism, the self-esteem myth and the new pseudo-morality of Oprah. Their internal corporate culture is one of greed and money-worship that would make Halliburton and BP look like Greenpeace by comparison. The environment their entertainers inhabit is the typical one of the Hollywood amoral hedonistic sex-and-drugs culture distorted with a twisted Michael Jacksonesque childishness. The Disney that most of the public perceives is a glossy shell of faux wholesomeness painted over the real Disney that is about as real as their animatronic figures and creepy Pixar animation.

    The way these kids turn out is no surprise at all. The only real surprise is that any child exposed to this environment does not turn out even worse than the examples you have given.
