Help Us Change The Way Celebrities Are Talked About Online
Back in 2008 we were energized by Disney and its stars. We had worked at Radio Disney, as part of the Boston Radio Disney Road Crew. We learned dances to “High School Musical” and “Hannah Montana” songs. And we couldn’t get enough of “Wizards Of Waverly Place” or Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens’ romance.
The Disney stars have dropped like flies. Every year. It was expected that they would leave the company, and venture into their own solo careers, but it wasn’t expected that each one would have some incredible struggle – relationship drama, career drama, drug drama, etc.
First came Vanessa Hudgens’ photo scandal, then Miley’s hatred of Hannah Montana, then the Jonas Brothers leaving Hollywood Records, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato’s falling out, Demi’s trip to rehab.
We can’t forget Demi and Joe Jonas’ fight, Vanessa and Zac Efron’s split, Zac’s trip to rehab, then the Jonas Brothers’ fight and subsequent split.
Or what about David Henrie refusing to come back for another “Wizards Of Waverly Place” movie, or Selena’s turbulent romance with Justin Bieber. And her trip to rehab.
And we can’t forget Miley’s total image change. Or her “Hannah Montana” co-star Mitchel Musso’s DUI that got him fired from “Pair Of Kings.” Or “Wizards Of Waverly Place” star Jake T. Austin’s DUI and car accident.
And just about every Lindsay Lohan headline over the years.
Every morning now we wonder what insane stories we’ll hear throughout the day. And when there isn’t any true-to-life drama we wonder what made up garbage the internet will throw our way.
Did Disney stars have a hand in making the internet it’s own form of trashy magazine? Probably. But they’re definitely just a piece of a larger picture.
Somewhere along the line following celebrities became less of a hobby for the world and more of an obsession. And not a healthy one. It’s no longer about being excited to see what stars are doing, now it’s all about watching as they fail. And if they aren’t failing, finding ways to manipulate the news until it looks like they are.
All we know is we can’t even deal with it anymore. And if we’re sick of it that means some of you must be too.
So, we want to know your thoughts. What you want to see on DisneyDreaming.com in the future. What stories you love the most, which ones you can’t stand.
Which stars you love hearing about, and which ones you want to never hear about again.
Do you like long posts, short posts, videos, polls, or something we haven’t included on the site yet. Lets get back to making celebrity news more fun, entertaining and less downright depressing. xox
