When Selena Gomez was rushed to the hospital on June 9 shortly after a taping at the Tonight Show, complaining of nausea and a sever headache, many feared for her health and wished her a quick recovery. When she returned to the hospital two days later and pinned off her sickness as a result of malnutrition, many feared that she would be following in the footsteps of her long-time friend and co-Disney spawn Demi Lovato, who checked into rehab a while back due to emotional and physical issues, one of them being an eating disorder.
Gomez was quick to clear up any speculation or rumors surrounding her recent illness, including an eating disorder and, as crazy as it sounds, a possible pregnancy scare brought on as a joke by none other than Perez Hilton himself. While on the Kidd Kraddick radio show, Gomez said, “I do eat! The problem is is I don’t eat right…I love everything that’s possibly not good for me.”
As much as we are prone to taking everything celebrities say with a grain of salt, I think in this instance we can actually believe Gomez when she says she does not have an eating disorder. Not to mention the fact that she has an amazing mom who will no doubt keep her in line. “She’s been supermom right now,” Gomez said. “She’s definitely shoving vitamins down my throat and following me around.”
On Kidd Kraddick, Gomez also confessed to loving junk food, including M&Ms, Kit Kats, Snickers, and Goobers. “I have to have creamed spinach,” she added, “or I have to have cheese on my broccoli. I have to have something that makes it not healthy.”
Whatever the case, we are extremely happy that it is not an eating disorder that Gomez is battling with, but rather a mere case of wanting to eat too much unhealthy food.
What’s interesting to point out is that in the June/July 2011 issue of Teen Vogue, of which Gomez adorns the cover, Gomez told Lauren Waterman that she recorded her single, “Who Says,” for her fans, saying, “I just thought they needed it, because of bullying.” And it was bullying that caused Gomez’s fellow Barney and Friends pal, Lovato, to take a downward spiral full of eating disorders and self-mutilation.
“I’ve spoken openly about being bullied throughout the past few years, but one thing that I’ve never been able to feel comfortable talking about was the effects that it had on me afterward,” Lovato told ABC News in an interview. “I literally didn’t know why they were being so mean to me. And when I would ask them why, they would just say, ‘Well, you’re fat.’”
It seems maybe Gomez had a double-incentive when putting out that particular single. Regardless, we are extremely happy to see her back on her feet and performing, not missing a beat and doing all she can not to let her fans down. We just can’t wait to see her co-host this year’s MuchMusic Video Awards on June 19!
It looks like high school is finally over for two Disney stars!
Perez Hilton is reporting that teen heartthrob Zac Efron has finally split from costar and girlfriend of four years Vanessa Hudgens.
It’s been confirmed that nothing dramatic spurned the breakup, and that there was no third party involvement (read: nobody cheated).
Zefron and Hudgens met on the set of Disney’s smash made-for-TV movie, High School Musical, and have been dating ever since.
It’s always sad to see a stable (and relatively normal) couple head to splitsville, but let’s not mourn their relationship for too long. Guys, you’re still young! Go forth and be single!
Demi Lovato have been written out of her Disney show Sonny With a Chance until she can get herself out of rehab, reports Pop Eater. Lovato checked into a centre to help her with the “emotional and physical issues” that have been plaguing her as of late.
The show, which premiered in February 2009 and focuses on Lovato’s character Sonny Monroe, a teen star on the kid’s sketch comedy program So Random!, will resume shooting season three in mid-January on schedule regardless of Lovato’s health. Reps from the show have explained that releasing Demi from her duties on set will give her the time and energy to focus on getting better.
Hmm…getting the axe from your own show seems like something that would add stress rather than take it away, no?
New episodes of Sonny With a Chance will reportedly focus more on guest stars and the other cast members of the show-within-a-show, So Random. This will presumably go on until Lovato gets a clean bill of health from her doctors.
Just focus on getting well, Demi! Don’t let the Mouse House overwork you!
Demi Lovato has been in the news recently as reports of her emotional issues surfaced. The actress’ so called ‘emotional and physical issues,’ as RadarOnline reports, forced her to cancel a tour with the Jonas Brothers and check herself into rehab treatment.
Following the news, Demi’s father, Patrick Lovato, spoke out about how he thinks Demi ended up at this place in her life. He claims that the pressures of show business have been hard on her and denounced his dislike his daughter’s choice to sign with Disney.
“There are a lot of pressures,” said Patrick. “That is one of the things I worried about when she signed with Disney. It’s just going to happen.”
Demi has been estranged from her father for quite some time and her fans have come to her defence, some in very extreme ways.
RadarOnline reports that Patrick Lovato has been receiving death threats in response to his comments, including a note which was nailed to a fence at his home which read, “You’re dead.”
“I don’t care, let them come at me,” explained Patrick, continuing, “I’m not responsible for where Demi is right now… I love my daughter.”
Although Disney’s lawyers and Demi’s mother have spoken out against Patrick’s allegations, there haven’t been any lawsuits slapped down yet.
According to sources all over the web, Demi Lovato has checked herself into rehab for undisclosed “emotional and physical issues.” Perezhilton.com reports from an insider source that Lovato is being treated for an eating disorder as well as self-abuse. Lovato also will not be finishing her tour with the Jonas Brothers.
Apparently Lovato was quite the party girl on her current tour. Lovato and her reps have blamed the bad habits and the rehab stint on the pressures of Hollywood and fame. It’s not difficult to believe that fame can do harmful things to a person especially when young and vulnerable like Lovato. We’ve seen so many cases of child stars going down the wrong path from Drew Barreymore to Lindsay Lohan.
It seems that many of the Disney starlets are troubled. You have Lindsay Lohan who got her start in Disney films and now she is in and out of rehab. Miley Cyrus isn’t in rehab, but she has tainted her pure image quite a bit in the last year. We can even take Britney Spears as an example as she got her start in the Mickey Mouse Club. What is the deal with Disney?
In any case, hopefully Lovato pulls through the rehab stint and can get back to Camp Rock. However, Disney may pull the plugs on this one, she’s no longer innocent.
The film earned an additional $62 Million last week, making its total box office gross $208 Million, according to Hollywood Insider. 13 percent of that money came from the IMAX 3-D screens.
The Tim Burton film topped original box office expectations by the Disney executives. However one cannot be completely surprised by these results with people lining up for 11am screenings. Additionally there was strong support from British audiences which brought in $16.8 Million, even though the film almost wasn’t released in theatres there.
According to slashfilm.com, Disney plans to close the doors of the studio which is known for distributing films that launched the careers of Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Steven Soderbergh and more.
Kevin Smith made the following comment on the closure:
The infamous blonde wing and cowboy boots are being hung up. Perhaps for good.
After about a year of speculation, a Disney representative confirmed that the Hannah Montana show will end after the fourth and final season.
Disney Interactive Studios has announced that Mickey Mouse will be taking his adventures beyond Kingdom Hearts. Along with Junction Point, Disney is developing a new platform-adventure gaming starring the 81-year old anthropomorphic rodent.
In Disney Epic Mickey, the mouse pulls an inFAMOUS and unwittingly devastates the world of the Cartoon Wasteland, where old and retired cartoon characters go – which ironically sounds like Florida without Disneyland.
Mickey stumbles into this realm and must choose to be a hero or to just get the hell out as fast as he can, since being the mouse that inadvertently rained destruction on this world he isn’t exactly popular. Sounds good, especially with the combat style being approached from the 4th-wall breaking idea of paints and thinners. I’ve always wanted to erase Donald Duck anyway.
So playing Fable as Mickey Mouse, huh? Sounds interesting. We’ll keep an eye on it for you.
Disney Interactive Studios has announced recently that there will be a Disney Sing It: Pop Hits, available to the masses. With the game being a multi-platform karaoke style title letting everyone the chance to give it a try. There will be a lot of familiar songs and expect singing tips along side vocal lessons from Tiffany Thornton herself.
On the Wii, Playstation 3 and Playstation 2 consoles, players will have the opportunity to match their talents with the performers which includes master recordings and popular music videos from global fan favorites. Read more…

Break out the three-dimensional glasses: Walt Disney announced Tuesday that it will release the computer-animated hits “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2″ as a 3-D double feature on Oct. 2.
The special presentation is slated to run for two weeks only.
Audiences will also see a 3-D trailer for the new “Toy Story 3,” which opens June 18, 2010. Like the 1995 original and its 1999 sequel, the movie features the voices of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen.
Miley Cyrus has issued a statement regarding the photograph that surfaced of the teenager doing the “slant-eyed’ poser”. The photo shows Cyrus, her boyfriend Justin Gaston and a group of friends pulling their eyes back as if they were mocking someone of Asian descent.
The Disney star responded on her official fan site, MileyWorld. MTV News has a transcript of her response.
Cyrus wrote, “I’ve also been told there are some people upset about some pictures taken of me with friends making goofy faces! Well, I’m sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context! In no way was I making fun of any ethnicity! I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy?”.
“It seems someone is trying to make something out of nothing to me. If that would have been anyone else, it would have been overlooked! I definitely feel like the press is trying to make me out as the new ‘bad girl’!”.
According to MTV News, Cyrus feels as though she is a new target for scrutiny since the spotlight has faded on the infamous Britney Spears. “I feel like now that Britney is back on top of her game again, they need someone to pick on! Lucky me! Haha,” she wrote.
“You guys know my heart and know the most important things to me are my friends, family, fans and God! In no way do I want to disappoint any of you! But when I have made mistakes in the past, I feel like I’ve owned up to them and apologized”.
Cyrus concluded with an appeal to the people and media. “Anyway, I really wish everyone would stop focusing on my personal life and get back to focusing on what I love! Music and acting! Hopefully, I will be touring again this fall! Yayy! It will be a nice change to be back out on the road again! xoxo Blessings”.
Selena Gomez is setting the record straight about her song “I’m Sorry.” The Disney show actress is dismissing rumours that her single is about beau Nick Jonas, reports People magazine.
“It’s definitely not about Nick Jonas,” Gomez, 16, tells PEOPLE. “It’s about someone back home in Texas. When I read it, I was like, ‘Oh no this gossip has to go away!’ I haven’t known the Jonas Brothers for that long, but I’ve gotten really close with all of them.”
The actress starts in the hit Disney show ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ and has just started work on her album.
“This year I’m finally in the process of starting an album. It’s something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time and I also want to take my fans through that journey so I’ll definitely do a whole behind the scenes thing,” she said.
Although Gomez has a packed schedule, she still makes time to watch her favourite show ‘Gossip Girl.’ “I absolutely love it,” said Gomez, who got to meet the cast at last month’s Teen Choice Awards. “I think the whole cast knows that I like their show. They all looked as a group and waved and smiled at me. I almost had a heart attack!”
Fans of The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus can now get even more from their favourite artists by simply inserting their CD into the computer.
Disney has set up “Unlock More Rock,” a website that features never-before-seen acoustic performances, interviews, behind-the-scenes videos and other exclusive content from Disney performers.
Those who own the artist’s album can access the exclusive content by visiting www.unlockmorerock.com and inserting the CD, which unlocks the extras.
Other acts featured on the website include Vanessa Hudgens, The Cheetah Girls and Demi Lovato.
Also featured is “Disney Mania 6,” a compilation album in which contemporary acts cover songs from such Disney films as “Monsters, Inc.” and “The Little Mermaid.” The “Unlock More Rock” website gives fans a chance to check out the “If I Didn’t Have You” recording session by Emily Osment & Mitchel Musso of “Hannah Montana” fame, as well as the making of Colbie Caillat’s “Kiss The Girl” music video.
Say goodbye to “Ebert and Roeper at the Movies.”
Both of the famed film critics will not be renewing their contracts with the show because Disney has decided to take it in a different direction.
Roeper released a statement Sunday, explaining that “Several months ago, Disney offered to extend my contract, which expires at the conclusion of the 2007-08 season. I opted to wait. Much transpired after that behind the scenes, but an agreement was never reached, and we are all moving on.”
Ebert followed suit yesterday, announcing his departure on the Chicago Sun Times web site.
He said that though there would be changes, the trademark “thumbs up” rating system would continue.
