Demi Lovato Blogs About Bullies

Demi Lovato Blogs About Bullies

Demi Lovato sat down and blogged on bullies on her MySpace during her lunch break on the set of Sonny With A Chance on Wednesday afternoon.

Here’s what the 16-year-old actress and singer had to say on bullying: “I’ve been talking to a few fans lately and I’ve been fortunate enough to maintain a friendship with them over myspace or emails and even though our lives are completely different, we still have one thing in common; having trouble dealing with the cruelty of others. Or some people call it bullying. I’ve dealt with it before until I made the decision to homeschool but sometimes it seems as if it doesn’t just end in high-school. Sometimes I get online and read blogs (which I probably shouldn’t if I can’t handle it) and read the horrible things that people say in comments… and it can really take a toll on you. Verbal abuse can be just as harmful as physical abuse. The fans that I have stayed in touch tell me all the time that they’re either being harassed online or being beaten at school and it hurts me to hear that. I took the easy road out and decided to homeschool but unfortunately not everyone has that option. So as a message to everyone, please keep in mind when you’re about to threaten someone, make fun of them or leave blog comments about them…that what you say or do to others can truly affect someone. And as cheesy and lame as it may sound… never forget the golden rule. And by the way, I wanted to say how thankful i am for you all. I’m so honored to be in the position that I’m in. You all have saved me.”

Demi‘s new show, Sonny With A Chance, is about a talented Midwestern girl who has won a nationwide talent search to move to Los Angeles and star in a popular television series. The series will debut in 2009 on Disney Channel.

    She’s so amazing, not just at singing. I can really look up to her, even though she’s the same age =]

  • kristan

    so… basically the show is about her life?
    and JONAS is about the jobros life?
    whats up with disney? they can’t come up with any original plots, they’re only making tv shows about their products lives.

    poor demi. she has such amazing talent, so much potential to really become something great, and all to waste being controlled by disney :[

    You know, I know bullying is bad and not right. It’s not nice, but good lord she talks about it all the time. This happened a few years ago. Seriously, life is too short to be dwelling on what people think about you. She’s super successful and rich and should be enjoying this ride while it lasts. Live it up and have fun. I’m tired of hearing her play this victim role.
