Brandon Smith on Demi Lovato: 'She Has a Strong Soul'

Brandon Smith is opening up about costar Demi Lovato‘s news that she was checking into a treatment center for emotional and physical issues.

The 21-year-old Sonny with a Chance star shared with ET, “If there’s anything that’s being portrayed in the media as problematic, it probably isn’t. This industry is very brutal and occasionally you just need to take 20 or 30 minutes to yourself. My family comes over every Sunday. We do Taco Night and I bring all my close friends… That’s kind of like the reset portion of my life.”

Brandon added, “I applaud her for actually having the maturity to let them know, ‘Hey, I need my space.’”

Brandon was just announced as one of the six celebs on the roster for ABC’s upcoming Skating with the Stars.

    honestly, demi brought this upon her ownself. why is ashley and joe being attacked by crazy fans saying so many horrible things to them. it’s not there fault demi can’t handle them being together. i mean joes not gonna stop his life just because of demi not being over him.

    Im so proud of demi !! she has always being so strong and and is amazing how she handle being so strong. with all the fame. But I understand being carring with so much for so a long time…..there is always going to be a time that u can not handle it all anymore.

    Im 18 and I went throgh bulling for 13 years. Words stay with you forever.No matter how happy and how littler you think about your past…they are always there like scars….they only erase with time.
    Althought You are permanetly demeged, you can always try to survive.
    I have always been meduim/ and i had to deal with all that pain alone for 13 years because i felt ashamed and i dint wanted to tell anyone about it.

    Demi has been soo inspiring to me. Is amazing the change she has made on my view of things. She is a support for eveyone who is going through the same difficulties. I wish her the best, and I hope the best for her. She deserves the world, she one of the most compassionate artist out there.

    I hope she gets better soon, and I hope she can get to be in peace at some point. She will learn how to deal with the pain, but the scars will heal only with time. Im still in the healing process as well and is not easy.

    She can overcome all of this and she will come out of this fine. She has been strong for all this year ….she has dealt with it. This is a new starting point for her, whch is going to make her stronger.

    She is so amazing !! We all love you and will wait for you !! No matter how long it takes ..we will be here to welcome you back !!

    You are strong !! We love you ! And I wish you the best !!

    Whilst this situation is not directly Joe’s fault he has shown a complete lack of compassion and support for his “best friend” by dumping her and then bringing the new girlfriend on tour. This tour was always going to be difficult and awkward for all concerned. Thought Ashley could have stayed more in the background for now and given things time to heal a bit more and been more understanding of another girls hurt.

    @anonymous: TOTALLY AGREE!

    LOVE STORY~ ♥♥ A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty and he said no. She asked him if he would want to be with her forever and he said no. She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and once again he replied with a no. She had heard enough. As she walked away, tears streaming down her face the boy grabbed her arm and said…. You’re not pretty you’re beautiful. I don’t want to be with you forever. I NEED to be with you forever. And I wouldn’t cry if you walked away…I’d die… ♥♥ THE END ♥♥ …….Isn’t that sweet? Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they like you. Something good will happen to you at 1:00-4:00 pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere on IM or email, outside of school, anywhere! Get ready for the biggest shock of your life. If you break this chain letter you will be cursed with 10 relationship problems for the next ten years. If you post this to 15 pages in 15 minutes, you’re safe
