Bella Thorne Actually Never Wanted To Be On 'Shake It Up!'

Bella Thorne Actually Never Wanted To Be On 'Shake It Up!'

For most of us, when we think of Bella Thorne, we think Shake It Up!

However, the actress revealed that at one point she didn’t even want to be on a Disney show or turn out to be a “Disney girl”.

“Do you think that I wanted to be a Disney girl? Did you think I wanted to do that? We were about to live physically on the street if I didn’t have that role,” she revealed to MTV.

Bella says while she didn’t want to do it, she did out of necessity.

“We were living off Stouffer’s coupons, and that’s all we had to eat every day. That may not sound like a big deal to everybody, but when you’re a single mom raising four kids with debt and you have nothing to your name, it’s f****** shitty.”

Bella adds about her audition: “I didn’t want to audition for Shake It Up!. I literally said in my audition, ‘I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I’m basically tone deaf, and I’m not funny. So I don’t know why I’m here.’ And everybody just started laughing. They all thought it was a joke.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about what Bella said about this?

    I had a nice visit with her mom Tamara. For those that don’t know – Bella lost her dad to a car accident. My heart still goes out to her – what a rotten thing to happen to a little girl. Tamara is the nicest lady – really good photographer, too. I met them at a Texas Instruments meet and greet to honor her for her DLP commercials. You might remember the “It’s amazing its the mirrors” spots in theaters. Also the elephant beside her. She was such a sweet, respectful little thing – way above average beauty that could have been used inappropriately, but her mom has a good handle on her career and definetely wouldn’t let her be exploited. As for Shake It Up – what a nice surprise it was to have her on a regular show. It was obvious that her voice and dancing needed work – I admire her for the tenacity to make both work, especially dancing opposite Zendaya who was already such a pro at dancing long before Shake It Up. Bella didn’t have to be good at everything, but she drove herself to be the best she could.

      I get she struggled in her life and didn’t have much but to shame the show and bring attention to something she didn’t want to do just so she can get money off it is just revolting… I get it she didn’t want to be famous and admitted to not being talented but why admit to that after all these years and work at something she didn’t want to do? This to me seems fake just like any publicity stunt she has done. If you don’t like your job or any of the jobs you have done – don’t do it. simple as that. no one forced you into the business. no one forced you to put your life in public. that was all on you. to blame and criticize disney for their choices of having her on the show – which she admit to say it was a joke/fluke.. honestly the business doesn’t need people like her who doesn’t know what she’s aiming for in this business. there are other jobs you can take than being famous.. just saying..

    I feel like al this girl does is lie for attention,

      Yeah. every interview has a new story that changes the previous one. I think it’s about time she starts recording herself to keep things right because there is so many contradictions to stuff she said previously that it’s not even funny now.

        As a Pop-culture addict, I am curious as to how or why the Disney Channel would hire someone that said they didn’t want to work for them when so many girls do. I did a little research and Bella was on the red carpet as early as 2008 (pre-Disney) in LA so how come they couldn’t afford food but could afford a wardrobe budget and Publicist? Her events go back even earlier if you do a google search but some are in New York. Aren’t Publicists around $5,000 per month? Did they do it for free for her? Enquiring minds want to know

          I do not believe what Bella’s interview says, I’m sorry, and as I said in the link I’ve put in response to the first comment, what Bella is saying that she was not comfortable with ‘Shake It Up’ is a lie.

          If you see the link you see that Bella has congratulated Shake It Up’s 2 years (at that time), and in turn, thanking the good people I met there.

      Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

    Just Jared I am ashamed of you for promoting this garbage on your site. You should do more research before posting articles like this.. Everything that comes out of this girls mouth is a big fat Lie! I have known Bella and her family for the past 11 years ,my son went on auditions with Bella and her sisters and brother. They struggled just like any family out in Los Angeles trying to get into acting but they never went with out, Her mom is the only one that went without. Her mother worked two jobs while juggling 4 kids in show biz just to help make her daughters dream come true. Bella’s mom is one of the nicest moms in Hollywood. I didn’t get to know her mom very well because she was always so busy running around her kids to auditions but when I did I was impressed how hard she worked for her kids. To hear Bella trash her mom and a show that made her absolutely makes me sick!! I remember the day she got the show she was so excited and to say that she didn’t want to go out on it was just another lie out of her mouth. Everything she does is for attention., She said Disney stifled her or her mom stifled her PLEASE we can only hope they could stifle her now. I can’t believe her team lets her run her mouth like she does, oh yea they probably don’t care as long as they are making money off her. They can reign her in because right now she is an embarrassment to the acting world and I am betting she is an embarrassment to her family and friends. If you watch any of her interviews lately you can tell she is high on something and she has lost so much weight. If her team, friends and family don’t help we are going to see a drug overdose someday and if that happens it will be a shame because she was a talented beautiful girl and all I see now is a girl that needs to keep her mouth shut, grow up and stay off drugs, stay off twitter, snap chat and PLEASE no more interviews, she can’t seem to keep her stories straight she contradicts herself in every interview. I hope some one helps her fast and maybe we can start with you and you can STOP promoting her self destruction. I don’t want to see her be another Brittany Spears, Amanda Bynes or Lindsey Lohan and if you look at her and see how she has changed in the last few years it looks like she is following in there path. I hope you will think twice before promoting someone like her instead of someone that is a role model that actually does some good.
