Disney Star Calls Joe Jonas Out on “Bull****”

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Rants, Rivalries,

Joe Jonas has been slammed as a "bad artist" by Dylan Sprouse.

The former Jonas Brothers star gave a revealing interview earlier this week in which he claimed he felt working for Disney meant he had to "sugarcoat" his true self and had little choice or creative input into his work.

But now his fellow former Disney star Dylan - best known for starring with twin brother Cole in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody - has hit out at his "bulls**t" comments, insisting Joe was more likely dazzled by fame than being prepared to make his own decisions. In a blog post, Dylan wrote, "I think it's bulls**t that they were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted too, they could have told Disney 'No.' Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn't is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame... Nowadays artists just assume they have to do what they are told by their proprietors because there is a 'rigid structure to achievement.' It is nothing more than a scheme to rob you of your individuality and capitalize the gain they acquire from such treachery. If you believe this, not only are you incredibly foolish, but you are a BAD ARTIST [sic]."

Selena Gomez Misses Her Disney Days

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Kids, Cable, Cancellations, Features,

Selena Gomez on 'Wizards of Waverly Place'Selena Gomez wishes she was still a Disney star.

The 21-year-old star singer-and-actress found fame on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place - where she played young wizard Alex Russo - and misses her the years of teen acting as she makes a transformation into an adult star. "I miss it. I wish I was still a part of it. I think it was the perfect thing for me at the time I was 14," she said.

The brunette beauty insists she doesn't yet feel as though she has made the transition from teen star to adult artist. Despite starring in Spring Breakers, releasing her debut album Dance Stars and overhauling her style, Selena - who previously dated Justin Bieber - sometimes still feels like she's 15.

Being interviewed by JLS star Marvin Humes on UK TV show Lorraine, she said, "I think everybody has a journey and you feel you have to love at the end of the day. There is not really a formula. I don't really know if I have fully made the transition yet. I feel like half the time I feel like I'm 15 and then I feel like I'm 21 then I feel like I'm 30 when I'm sitting at home by myself on a Friday night watching the same episode of Friends."

Disney Infinity to be unveiled January 15 by Disney and Pixar

disney infinity

The chief creative officer of Disney and Pixar, John Lasseter, is unveiling mystery "gaming initiative" Disney Infinity on January 15, 2013 in Hollywood. Also in attendance will be John Pleasants, the principle creative advisor at Disney Imagineering. The attendance of these two suggests the enormity of Disney Infinity, which we currently know nothing about.

The New York Times interviewed Robert Iger, Disney's chief executive, in October, with Iger discussing a similar gaming initiative called Toy Box. It's possible that Toy Box has since transformed into Disney Infinity, which the NYT's described as a "console game with extensive mobile and online applications in which various Pixar and Disney characters will interact with one another for the first time."

We'll keep you posted on more news about Disney Infinity as it develops.

Selena Gomez: I’d Have Two Kids by Now if I Stayed in Texas

Selena Gomez on 'Glamour'Singer-actress Selena Gomez has offered up what she believes her life would be like if she hadn't become a huge star and opened up about growing up with Disney.

In this month's issue of Glamour, the Spring Breakers actress claimed that she would have probably become a teen mom had she remained in Texas: "I'm terrified of what I would have become if I'd stayed there. I'm sure I'd have two children by now."

But that's not to say that she was exempt from the semblance of a high school experience:

"I grew up in one of the biggest high schools in the world, and that’s the Disney Channel. Everybody was falling in love with each other or not liking each other, and it was exhausting…and I was the shy one in the corner. And now I’m so opinionated, and I don’t have time for the cattiness. I have good people around me, and I’m glad I’m at the place I’m in. I wish I was there back then."

The Glamour issue hits newsstands on Tuesday, November 6.
