Demi Lovato Officially Quits Disney Channel Show

| Filed under: TV NewsDisneyDemi Lovato


If this is what's best for her, then we support her decision 150%.

Demi Lovato has announced that she will not be returning to her Disney Channel original series, Sonny With A Chance. She has decided that for the good of her health and the rest of her cast, she will step aside of the program and allow the show to carry on without her. In an official statement, she explained:

"It made sense for me to go ahead and leave the show to focus on my music. It's kind of sad for me that a chapter of my life has ended but there couldn't be a better time for me to move on … I don't think going back to Sonny would be healthy for my recovery. Being in front of a camera would make me nervous."

Thankfully, the House of Mouse is standing behind their girl in this trying time and support her decision to leave the show, despite losing their star. They also released a statement, saying

"We respect Demi's decision to focus fulltime on her music and not immediately return to her acting career. She is a talented young woman and our hearts are with her as she continues to take action to improve her health and bounce back from adversity."

She really is so strong, huh? Seriously - it takes a brave person to walk away from an opportunity like this. This was her Hannah Montana, her Lizzie McGuire. But she is putting herself before her career, something a lot of people in this business are incapable of doing.

We're proud of you, girl. Here's hoping your next step takes you to better places, emotionally and career wise.

    Oh I can't wait. fucking idiot kids. When you suck at singing…stick with the show thats making you cash. Too much real talent out there now with youtube etc…

  2. 2

    being in front of a camera and acting would make her nervous yet she's been doing it since she was out of pull ups…….?? gimme a fucken break - not knowing if my rent will be paid next month makes me nervous. not sure where the money will come from to EAT makes me nervous. the funny sound I'm hearing from my car makes me nervous…………………….this little spoiled brat needs to get a grip and a life.

  3. 3

    and she doesnt famewhore apparently. she went away to that rehab facility and didnt have her parents..oops, i meant "sources" leak bs info like changing her name or "movies" shes supposedly signing onto. lindsay lohan…how about taking a page out of demi's book? going the fuck away for 6 months…shit or how about forever?

  4. 4

    Who cares if you support her decision or not. She is not doing it for your approval.

  5. 5

    no one knows what she went through. I support her decision…she's extremely talented and she will make her big comeback that will blow these negative comments away.

  6. 6

    LOL to focus on her music….she's not even a real artist.

  7. 7

    UMMM Perez you can't really be falling for that excuse, right? This is no different than Miley Cyrus leaving Hannah Montana. Demi knows that the show sucks and that she can make more money elsewhere. If she gets a good offer for acting… she'd accept it today. She's not being "brave" puhlease!

    Re: BITCHyoulostyourmind – How has Demi gone away? I've heard nothing but EVERYTHING about her problems…

  9. 9

    Re: April 20th – You have a good point! Must be hard being beautiful and rich… I just don't know how she gets through the day.

  10. 10

    Bet it was Dark Disney that cut bait with her.

  11. 11

    Re: Manda756 – hey it cant be any worse than lindsay fucking lohan, ill tell you that…

  12. 12

    Everyone in Hollywood knows Demi was fired — and so does she — no matter how she (or you) try to spin(s) it…

  13. 13

    she has an incredible voice. youtube her singing on ellen and also singing the national anthem.

  14. 14

    I think the show went on without her so it would be silly to bring her back anyways. Didn't Perez say they even changed the shows name? But if she doesnt want to be in the cameras spotlight..then do not do music because you in fact, are still going to be getting the same attention.

  15. 15

    Awww, no love for the emo cutter? Dang…Maybe she'll put a sex tape out next.

  16. 16

    Perez approves! It's all about him.

  17. 17

    wow. all these negative comments being made by jealous bitches. hilarious really.

  18. 18

    Re: BITCHyoulostyourmind – Haha! Truth

  19. 19

    There goes her career.

  20. 20

    blablabla, yeah, so brave walking away, .like every other disney star does when they are no longer kids.

  21. 21

    Yeah, right. I'm "sure" it was her decision. After all the bad press, do you really think Disney still wants this girl's name attached to them?

  22. 22

    Next stop for Demi will be 10 years down the line as the Jenny Craig spokesperson.

  23. 23

    Okay all you stupid hating bastards, who gives a FLYING FUCK if she quit or was fired, and in my opinion i dont think she was fired i think that they just saw it best that she didnt resume the show because she needs to focus on herself for now. She went to rehab to GET BETTER. shes quitting her show to GET BETTER. How is she a spoiled brat? she has mental issues she needs to fix! you people bashing her are fucking morons. And she actually has a very good voice, and has a talent at singing. Who the fuck are you to judge when im sure the people saying that listen to fucking lady gaga and kesha who have NO TALENT. fuck you leave her alone!

  24. 24

    Re: gellinlikeafelon – REALLY? they sure as hell still have MILEY CYRUS attached to their name and shes been caught on camera doing drugs and in way more scandals than demi..

  25. 25

    I believe in her 1,000,000%! i always have and i always will. She has the best voice of any Disney star to date! I only hope to work with such a wonderful woman someday! GO DEMI!

  26. 26

    Quit? sure… More like fired her ass.

  27. 27

    Give me a break this crazy skank was trashed from the channel.

  28. 28

    I liked Sonny best of all the Disney shows. Wonder what it will be like now?

  29. 29

    She's 18. Not cute little teenager anymore… Disney doesn't like them when they grow up!

  30. 30

    Re: LagunaBarbie44 – Miley has more star power than Demi. That's why Forbes reported she made $48 million last year and Demi's income isn't even available.

  31. 31

    Re: LagunaBarbie44 – You can't put Kesha and Lady Gaga in the same category. Lady Gaga is classically trained and writes and produces her own songs. In fact you cannot even compare her to Demi… she may have a voice… but that's it.

  32. 32

    She has written most of her music, and is very talented. I didn't like the show that much anyways. Disney tries to get so much out of one person, that they'll do anything. She is a singer, and she can act. But I love her music so much more. I'm glad she's taking a time FOR HERSELF. We don't know the real story. Tell me, do you know the real story?

    Honestly, most of the people commenting on here are wasting their time, because they're stupid. If you don't like her, why are you following her every move and making comments? And it's better that she's trying to get better, than pushing herself back to work. You think you know her, but you don't. I don't either. So give the girl a break. I'm happy she's doing so much better than she was before.

    We love you Demi!

    Re: Douche Hunter – Why is it that all these celebrity haters are just so god damn stupid? I like how you assume money is the be all end all solution to everything. You seem to be doing pretty fucking well for yourself if you can bitch and moan about celebrities. How uninformed are you?

  35. 35

    Re: Manda756 – You really are an idiot. Not only that you have no idea how mental disorders work or what not. But she should take comfort in the fact that ever her most brain dead moronic haters finds her beautiful lol. That's too funny.

  36. 36

    Re: UhYeah – Compared to Miley and Selena? She's more of an artist than they are.

  37. 37

    Re: Banananaaa – Yeah even though Disney confirmed that she was the one that decided not to come back. And even SHE confirmed it as well as the fact that even DISNEY said "We will wait till she is ready to come back." stupid…

  38. 38

    Re: Ivybby – You are aware that she has a ton of offers to work with other people right? And she's still with HR and has like a ton of collab opportunities right? But she'll always have a career. You guys keep talking about her, she won't be going anywhere anytime soon in one shape or form.

  39. 39

    Re: LagunaBarbie44 – no offense but Gaga at least has talent. Kesha? Really? You're gonna compare Lady Gaga to Kesha?

    Hell even compare Demi Lovato, who can at least write her own songs to Kesha? silly silly girl.

  40. 40

    Re: Douche Hunter – she doesnt suck at singing u should watch live before u make such a harsh comment

  41. 41

    i think it would be a really hard choice to make. but i also think that she doing the right thing putting her self over her career how many celebrities could say they did that im betting not many. so all the people making harsh judgments and and commenting out of jealously or hate or what ever ur problem is. just remember ur in contol of ur own destiny and however ur life as panned out is somewhat based on ur own decisions. Also no one knows why she went to rehab so before he judging u should get the WHOLE story of why she has made this decision.

  42. 42

    SMART! Fuck that Disney shit!

  43. 43

    actually bitches, she has a good music career. and this girl actually has a good set of pipes.

  44. 44

    Re: relavent88 – i so agree with you

  45. 45

    Re: DontForget – watching…yep….still sucks.

  46. 46

    Re: ThePerezHater – Oh and I thought you understood the industry…apparently you don't. Do you think her songs would make a major release? Nope….two words. Dr. Luke. It's all about credits, cash and entitlement you fucking moron. The odds of her having a bigger music career are slim to none. You must be one of those existentialist dreamers…
    you are sad

  47. 47

    You people REALLY need to get a life. Stop spreading hate. Stop wasting your lives saying hateful things about someone with a mental illness, that you don't even know, no less! If you don't like them move on with your life and stop being such a prick.

    She is still human. So seriously, if you don't like her, how about just leaving her alone. Bullying makes people take their lives.

    Don't waste your time on hate. It does nothing but bad to you and everyone else.

  48. 48

    Re: Douche Hunter – I understand it more than you do. You are aware that Hollywood Records is a major record label right? So no I don't think her songs would make a major release. Because they already did you dumb shit. And thanks to haters like you she's in the public eye now more than ever. She only gave interviews to “small companies” like ABC, and People magazine. As far as having a bigger music career, Maybe not. But she's still popular enough to generate a large enough income to from the idiot haters like you to keep her afloat. So good job adding to her bank account you fucking dumb ass. Congrats to you. You're a moron! lol

  49. 49

    Re: relavent88 – She does have a good music career. Maybe not the size of Justin Bieber but big enough to make her popular. And good job overlooking an entire continent like South America Douche Hunter. You know, the place where Demi is actually more popular than Justin Bieber and the douche Jonas Brothers? Yeah that's such a huge failure of a career. An entire continent of people who love her.

    But you are right, it is about the credits, cash and the entitlement. She certainly got the bank roll, she's got the fame credits since you idiots can't stop talking about her and as far as entitlement goes? If she didn't have it then, she certainly has it now since more record producers are keeping an eye for her.

    So you just helped her "slim to none" career go into the mainstream spotlight. Lol, you're a retard!

    Burn! ha ha ha

  50. 50

    Re: Douche Hunter – PS dumb ass. Using Dr. Luke in your example is frankly stupid on your end. You are aware that he's an award winning song writer and a GRAMMY winning song writer right? You have yet to grasp the simple nuances of arguing. If you're trying to convince me that you know more about the industry than anyone else, you certainly didn't do so with that faux pas of an example.

    Lol. Fail dude. Fail.

  51. 51

    Re: Jeff Ting – You fucking idiot…I referenced Dr. Luke as the one who would actually be doing her tracks…not her. But hey you learned something by googling Dr. luke.

    you are so fucking stupid.

  52. 52

    Re: Jeff Ting – Also…if you actually believe anyone reads these comments that is relevant and "puts them in the mainstream spotlight" you should check your ego.

    nobody gives a shit what you say or I say. Now go listen to your Disney music

  53. 53

    Re: Douche Hunter – So in other words you're telling me her working with a grammy award winning song writer as well as working with a huge hit producer like Timbaland not to mention being put on a MAJOR record label is her NOT getting her music out there? Lol. Yeah you might want to get your mental ineptitude and over ignorance check you dumb ass. Your example fails.

  54. 54

    Re: Douche Hunter – So in basically working with a grammy award winning song writer, being signed to a major record label and getting produced by a veteran producer is her NOT getting her music out there then right?
    Yeah your argument still fuck fails you dumb ass lol. Try again.

  55. 55

    Re: Douche Hunter – You mean besides the news media that continues to run story after story about her is not putting her in the mainstream spotlight? Her 20/20 and GMA interviews coming up are not mainstream spotlight exposure? Or what about the pink haired fat fuck running this site that continues to generate comments that “nobody gives a shit about”. Looks they do give a shit since it generates more articles about her. You moron lol that it's not even funny. And I know one person who gives a shit about what I say. You you fucking retard! Or else you wouldn't responding! Oh you suck again! :) I'm gonna sit here with my “disney music” while you bask in your world of ignorance and stupidity. You're good at that ;-)

  56. 56

    Re: Jeff Ting – see you are dumb bro…it isn't her music…she would just be the robot singing over it. Which is what this conversation was originally about…you said she was a good songwriter. I just used that as an example. Come on man….its fucking Demi Lovato. I am over this conversation.

  57. 57

    Re: Jeff Ting – go pick the rice

  58. 58

    Re: Douche Hunter – Re: Jeff Ting – see you are dumb bro…it isn't her music…she would just be the robot singing over it.

    No you fucking moron. This conversation was about her "getting a major release". Because you have an obvious inability to read people's post I never said anything about her being good or bad. But because you're a fucking dumb ass you assumed I did. Also even if she did work with a so. Writer, it's still her song she is working with. Just because Adam lambert worked with a friend when he wrote adtermath doesn't mean that Adam lambert siding "write" the song as well you moron. Lol How fucking stupid can your dumb ass be x-D!!!

  59. 59

    Re: Douche Hunter – ps: the only thing that is better is…the room. Nobody is better that Tommy wiseau. Not even Jesus :p

  60. 60

    the girl has a great voice.. she can definitely make a career out of singing if people mature, open their minds and don't see the fact that she was a disney star. I heard lots of her song and her voice is really mind blowing, honestly!

  61. 61

    Re: April 20th – Why is she a spoiled brat? Because you don't understand why she doesn't want to play Sonny anymore? I'll tell you why she said that she would be nervous in front of the camera. She's has gained 15 Kg weight (that's what happens if you're not stick your finger in your throat after every meal anymore) and is very unpleased the way she lookes. She has to buid up new self confidence and comments like yours aren't helping.

  62. 62

    Despite the critical comments I just read, I truly believe that this show has been holding her back along with her personal issues, which everyone may have to deal with at some point in their life. I think her potential lies within her musical talents. She has yet been given a chance to shine in the music industry, and she has the talent. She just needs a good song to sing, whether she composed it or not. She is going to be great.

  63. 63

    she was n it for the money anyways
