Demi Lovato Checks Into Rehab, We Groan

The big news in stupid teen gossip this week is that 18-year-old Demi Lovato checked into rehab for “emotional and physical issues.” She is on TV, so we are going to comment. Rumors (that this blogger previously refused to believe, but the other blogger insisted were true) circulated that Demi was a cutter. She has admitted that she was bullied and hated by her peers. We want to punch these peers in their nasty faces, seriously. Demi is adorable and talented. She is the only one of those Disney Channel twits who can actually sing. ANGST. We wish her luck and hope she gets better. It was smart of her to drop out of the tour and seek help and relief from the pressures of fame without being ordered to do so after legal trouble like most young stars.

Because of the gay suicides, there has been a lot of publicity and celebrity outreach regarding bullying, so you are probably sick of hearing about it. But we are going to add our own spiel to it. One of us bullied a girl in middle school. One of the things she did was throw cheese at the girl, because a recurring theme in the bullying was that the girl "looked like a rat." She even drew a picture of a half-rat, half-girl having…uh….relations with a piece of cheese. Sure, it was really funny, especially when that girl got upset, but years later, it actually haunts this blogger. She’s not on facebook, and that’s not a good sign (because EVERYONE is on facebook). What happened to that girl? It's no excuse that this blogger was 13; she knew better, and it feels gross now. Adults and college kids can bully too, and while it gives you a temporary high and a little entertainment and cool factor, it’s just not worth it in the long run.

You don’t want to be the person who drove someone to hurt themselves. You don’t want that to be your contribution to the world. Even if someone doesn’t seem that fragile, even if they are mean too, or even if what you did “was not that bad,” you don’t know what kind of affect it can have on them.

And if you are being bullied, know that the “It Gets Better” campaign is called that for a reason. The rules for fitting in are different for adults, and you will actually find your niche and good friends one day. You will learn to love your personality and work it for what it is. It does get better, and that is the truth for just about everyone, no matter how hopeless they feel.


  1. 1) Demi Who?

    2) Very well said. Bullying is unacceptable.

  2. I appreciate your post. Poor Demi. I was bullied horribly in elementary school, with kids throwing themselves into the lockers yelling "earthquake!" when I walked by, and yet I was NOT a heavy kid! It's crazy how cruel children can be, but I agree that as you get older, you'll find your niche and people who love and appreciate you for what you are. It's good Demi recognizes her issues, or has people who care about her enough to force it, and they are getting her help.

  3. We guess Mrs. Potts doesn't watch the Disney Channel, haha. You'll know when your kid gets a little older.

    CurvyGirl- Nice comment, thanks for sharing. We think that what makes you "weird" as a kid makes you cool and interesting as an adult.
