Debby Ryan Reveals That She Had to Fight Really Hard to Make Her Music

Debby Ryan shows off her svelte figure in a crop top and polka-dotted pants in a new photoshoot.

The 21-year-old Jessie star opened up to Bello magazine about having such a big hand in her Disney Channel show and the struggle of making music that everyone seems to have an opinion on.

On how she got into directing: “Since I was on Suite Life, I had been shadowing directors because I’m nosey. All the things that get you in trouble as a kid are the things that make you successful in life. At least that’s what I’m going for. I started shadowing directors, and I fell in love with it. They started really lobbying on my half, which I was so thankful for.”

On battling to make the music she wanted to make: “Everyone’s always like, ‘Oh so you’re doing music. Disney must be making you do music.’ And I’m like, ‘No, actually.’ I’ve had to fight really hard, against everyone, not just Disney and Hollywood Records. I’ve had to fight hard to make sure too many people don’t get to weigh in on my personal brand. Everything has been subject to everyone’s opinion, and music is the thing that I need to be spearheading. Having people fight for me, and being in the trenches with good people, helps. When I said I wanted to direct, Disney helped me do that. It feels good knowing that people are taking a chance on building a woman out of me.”

On having a creative hand since the beginning of Jessie: “Being the lead of a show is one thing, being there from the very concept before characters are even formed is another. It was really myself, the showrunner, and Disney that were involved in bringing it to life. My heartbeat’s been running through this from the very beginning.”

    I love her hair!

    Personal brand? barf. A nose ring and freaky white hair doesn’t exactly make you stand out. Besides her music was run of the mill karaoke. It was awful.

    I’m really not a hater but she can’t sing, she doesnt have the voice she needs autotune and theres a lot of talented people out there who needs a chance more than her I think.
