Really? Demi Lovato being diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and seeking treatment for mental illness is a scandal and "out of control"? Really? Props to the girl for getting help.

Demi Lovato really isn't "sprialing out of control" she knew she needed help and she got it. If a normal person did this, it would be nothing but if a star does it, everyones talking.

You people are ridiculous. None of this means you're spiraling out of control it just means she's young and she's made mistakes.

I"m pretty sure these articles are spat out at light speed to meet "today's" standards, therefore there are spelling mistakes, rash statements, and sensationalized material that most consider  innocuous. But they're trying to sell something. So one merchant sells Lovato's story as a scandal, another adds spin to it, the story runs on different media outlets for years. Unfortunately, it might give the impression that people should hide from their weaknesses and avoid help, avoid admittance, avoid communicating such things. But it's all just spin. Misinformation. The fact that what's her face took a drink as a child is meaningless, who GAVE her the drink is a real scandal. This article is from the point of view of "where did their career go?". Which is an entirely unhealthy perspective from the point of view of a, say father, who would hope to preserve some kind of life... not camera time. These are not strangers. We know some one like this. But was it a catchy title? Spark interest and thought? yes. Sad but true.

She's just like a any kid out there at any time ok folks......
Good attention or bad attention is still attention, and it's that simple people. We have all seen it a hundred times and have lived it as well.

  A child acts out in a bad way and gets disciplined for it. In her / his head it's still attention and will seek it again in the same way. When the attention stops she / he will go further to get the attention she / he seeks over their siblings.

  Now throw in siblings that are doing the same things as she / he are doing to get the attention (in thier heads attention = approval), and you have all the ingredients needed for poor Lindsay to the same mistakes as everyone did when they were younger. Throw in parents that are doing the same thing she is to get attention from the media, and give her an seemingly endless cash flow and it may never stop.


 She still hasn't grown up, and most likely won't. I blame Lindsay for being a child and nothing more. I blame the media and ourselves for giving her what she want's every time.



Not only are some of the examples of the Biggest Child Star Scandals a joke (i.e. Demi Lovato), but the idiots who do the write ups for each of these images, are dumb-asses; they cannot even spell: in the Jamie Foxworth blurb, the tried to write filed for bankruptcy, but instead put field for bankruptcy. I would like to know how to do that
