WEEKEND | Disney's Resolution: Find a never-aging, never-curious preteen who keeps his/her clothes on and mouth shut unless onstage
2010 found Disney’s team of pop-singing wunderkinds careening into adulthood on a wave of bad press and scandal. Demi Lovato (of “Camp Rock” fame) allegedly discovered that Joe Jonas was dating her under orders from the top and, amidst a flurry of emotional turmoil, ended up in rehab. Vanessa Hudgens took a fall when Zac Efron realized “High School Musical” wasn’t actually real and that he wasn’t contractually obligated to date her (You can cry on my shoulder, Zefron!). Selena Gomez (“Wizards of Waverly Place”) received mailboxes full of death threats after supposedly kissing Justin Bieber backstage at a concert. And Miley Cyrus actually made me cry with laughter when a camera captured her taking a hit of salvia and rapping Nicki Minaj. Oh, and let’s not forget that there may or may not be nude photos of her making the rounds online. Maybe next year Disney will finally take my advice and go back to being cartoon purists. Eeyore never posed naked in his bathroom doorway, now did he?
