She`s actually a Disney Channel star, not an MTV one, which is why she was on tour with the Jonas Brothers.

I think they really should just have said she had to go get some things taken care of and left it at that. There are a lot of little kids who watch her show who don`t need any more poor influences than they already have.

"who the hell is demi lovato and why should i care that she cuts herself"

The article didn`t mention herself, it just mentions `cutting`...

who is this? I`m going to hazard a guess that she is some "MTV nobody" celebraturd that wants more attention. Wouldn`t be easier to be known for doing something, than to pretend to be "broken".

And this "singer" could have just as easily said "drop out of tour with <fellow singing nobodies> to take care of personal issues. Family requests...bla, bla, bla..."

Celebrity and fame are for morons, and those that "follow" such poo.

Here`s what really happened...

Demi went to her publicist crying that no one was hiring her & paparazzi weren`t stalking her `cause she`s a has been at 18.

Her publicist and agent said "Go to Rehab and write a book" - "Do the talk show circuit" - "get on OPRAH!"

A career is reborn.

It sucks that she has problems or whatever, but it`s not like she would care about my problems. Why should I care about hers? Until I saw this, I knew as much about her as she knows about me.

In a couple weeks she`ll be out of rehab and on the Talk-Show circuit about her traumatic experiences {both of them}. People will say how strong and brave she is to face her "demons" {promoting her book}. She will be a new Teen Idol of Strength.

Why do people make celebrity/hero`s out of them? All they did was have the lack of character and strength to become crack heads {or whatever}.

Here`s a thought: Don`t become a coke whore in the first place. THAT would be something new.

"After trying for so many years to gain approval from the masses and going to such great lengths the have followers worship the very ground you walk on, you can`t simply decide to walk away and be left alone."

If someone has a sudden flash of sense - why not - the `they have courted this` argument is a lame one propogated by the paparazzi, trash publications and people living their lives by proxy.

Bullying, eating disorders and cutting? Emo...

As far as "respecting their privacy" goes, celebreties have a hard time realizing that they can`t simply choose when they want people to give them attention. After trying for so many years to gain approval from the masses and going to such great lengths the have followers worship the very ground you walk on, you can`t simply decide to walk away and be left alone.

I have no idea who this person is, but it`s really sad that she`s going through that sort of thing. Bullying is a lot worse than people think it is, and it can effect people for a really long time.

The fact that she`s going in for cutting and eating disorders is a LOT different than going in for booze and drugs like LiLo a lot of those other child stars.

People who are saying she`s doing this for attention are forgetting that when you`re a star, you don`t get to choose what is made news and what isn`t. If you`re doing something bad or disgusting, or something people consider immoral, the press thrives on that sort of thing like maggots on rotten meat-- of course they sensationalize it at make it a bigger deal than it needs to be.

However, that being said, at LEAST things brings attention to the affects of bullying.

I don`t know if society is causing more of these illnesses in the youth, or whether it`s just more acceptable to admit to having mental illnesses, and so more seek help.

It`s a fantastic sign that more celebs are admitting to mental illnesses and disorders. The stigma attached to mental illness is based on ignorance, and as more people admit to suffering them, the more society may begin to understand that these are valid medical conditions, no less valid or important than physical ones. Just look at what the war overseas has done for mental illness. Would you go to a soldier with PTSD and call them a looney?

You should care because she`s a person. Not that it should be headline news, but I think as people we should feel sorry that she was turned into this. Today`s pop scene is churning out too many messed up young people, it`s just part of it now. Sad day.

Eating disorder and cutting are what her "people" have spun it into. People that follow celeb gossip know she was a coke head, and know this was written about her:

*let`s hope she doesn`t go down the road miley cyrus has, and become a whore. there comes a point you can`t feel sorry for them anymore.

hopefully she can use this as a way to relate to teens and let them know its OKAY to be who you are and how you are.

poor thing. i know puberty is hard, but being broadcast during it is that much harder. i feel like miley cyrus had such aspirations to be a good role model, but fame corrupts.

demi lovato is not as far gone as `hannah montana`, though, i don`t think. eating disorders, cutting, these are awful when they`re brought to light in a disney starlet, sure, but at the same time... most kids turning into adults go through SOMEthing huge such as this. my mother was strong enough to confess that she had struggled with an eating disorder in highschool, but that she got over it. my father was brave enough to stop drinking when he had been an alcoholic since 10th grade.

i`m not discounting that it`s a bad thing, and she should be ashamed, but i think she would be. being on camera constantly, with weight fluctuating as you grow... all i can say is poor thing.

they`re all deserving of our empathy, in a sick way. let us just hope she doesn`t go down the road miley cyrus has, a

I wouldn`t be so sure. She has a one in five chance of dying from the eating disorder. And only a 40-60% chance of recovery.

She`s a Disney girl but she is actually legitimately talented- the girl has an amazing voice.

She might not be well known to a lot of users on I-A-B but she`s the perfect person to reach out to young teens who are struggling with their identities and bullying. I hope people follow her example and get help instead of taking the more drastic step!

Poor little girl :( Good for her for making the effort to seek help instead of self-medicating *coughlindsaycouch*

I was reading about this on twitter last night. I knew she had a history or cutting- there are pictures of the scars. Nobody, regardless of how beautiful or how talented they are, isn`t going to be affected by bullying like that.
