Disney Star, Demi Lovato, 18, is another epic fail churned out by the Hollywood Teen Machine. She has backed out of her world tour with the Jonas Brothers due to “emotional and physical issues” and has taken a trip into rehab (singing like Rihanna but worse), according to her reps. We all know that reps are paid big bucks to hype and whitewash the truth. So, what’s really going on with Young Demi (as opposed to Old Demi as in Moore)?
Perhaps she’s traumatized because she had to tour with her former boyfriend, Joe Jonas. He’s a little heartbreaker, isn’t he? Didn’t he dump Taylor Swift by text message? That’s messed up! Okay, I admit that Joe Jonas is a cutie, but he sure is leaving a path of love entrails everywhere he goes. Stop it, Joe!
Rumor has it that Demi Lovato also had a fling or two with Justin Bieber, but who knows. He’s too young to have flings!
So, Demi is reportedly in rehab due to emotional issues, self-mutilation (cutting) and an eating disorder? Apparently, it seem she’s been wacko-jacko for quite some time, which is pretty bad considering that she’s younger than most of my jeans!
According to an MSN.com article (http://music.msn.com/music/article.aspx?news=608954>1=28102), Lovato admitted that part of her emotional problems may stem from being verbally bullied badly in school and that she left school because she was unable to deal with it and had to be home-schooled. Aw, poor thing! Was she sashaying down the school hallway and some horrible kid screamed out, “I hate you, Demi. You’re too cute and your hair is too fluffy!!!” That’ll do it.
Demi should have lived in my elementary and junior high school days when nobody gave a rat’s arse if you were bullied or not. When we’d come home crying about some kid teasing us, our parents would spank us (hard) for not beating up the bully. Then, after we stopped crying, they’d give us some sound advice:
“If somebody calls you a name, curse them out loudly. If somebody bullies you, I’ll send your big brother or sister down to the school to curse them out and beat them, if necessary. If somebody hits you first, pick up a chair or whatever you can get your hands on and hit them in the head with it! That’ll shut ’em up. Nobody messes with my kid!” Of course, I don’t condone violence, fighting or spanking of offspring in any capacity as it’s never a solution. That’s what my parents told me on how to deal with the bully problem. I’m just sayin’.
Things were a little bit different back in my day. We didn’t call Child Protective Services every time our parents did something that we don’t like and we learned early that the world can be a cold, harsh, cruel place and you must learn to suck it up, tough it out, put on your big kid underwear and deal with it. We didn’t have nervous breakdowns and cut ourselves with razor blades every time somebody said boo. And if you thought you would not have to go to school because you were scared of bullies, you had another thought coming. Us Baby-Boomers didn’t need no stinkin’ rehab and we survived relatively sane and cut-free somehow. Most of us did anyway.
Feel free to refer to my “Over-parenting” article, which can be found at :
If we are “The Baby-Boomers” then the current generation should be named “The Technologically-Overloaded, Whiney, Punk-Arses Who Can’t Deal With Life.”
Honestly, bullying is no joke as we are all learning, but considering that Demi Lovato is one of Disney’s most famous teens at the moment, couldn’t she just leave the past in the past and realize that she got the last laugh on all of those that may have teased her in the past? Hey, she’s a star and you guys ain’t, so ha!
Hopefully, Demi Lovato will be fine and recover and get back to her career. Come on, Demi, pull yourself together, kid! The Technologically-Overloaded, Whiney, Punk-Arses Who Can’t Deal With Life need you as their role model.
