War of the Disney Worlds

April 7, 2013


On April 9th 2013, Demi Lovato will be premiering the video of her already released single, Heart Attack. On April 7th 2013, Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus both released their new singles, Selena’s ‘Come and Get it’ and Miley’s ‘Ashtrays and Heartbreaks’, so has this become the battle of the post-Disney starlettes?

There are rumours circulating of Miley and Liam Hemsworth’s split, which isn’t totally shocking as being still a mere age of 20 and constantly in the eye of the public, there are bound to be pressures on their relationship. Some people are saying that Miley’s new single, collaborated with Snoop Lion, is a reference to the relationship rumours and her recent Twitter pictures that arguably expose her as a marijuana smoker. Selena Gomez’s spilt with Justin Bieber is expectant to fuel her recently released single, although Selena is denying these allegations.

It would seem that these three used-to-be Disney child stars are trying desperately to push themselves away from their past and move onto bigger things. Such as Demi Lovato appearing as a judge on the US X Factor, Selena Gomez starring in the raunchy and soon-to-be-released Springbreakers and Miley Cyrus’s not-so-new beau hair do.

The Jonas Brothers have also recently released a new single and video, Pom Poms, which could arguably have reference of a sexual kind, as the main hook is “More to love when your hands are free. 
Baby put your pom poms down for me” and as some may be aware that ‘tossing pom poms’ is rather sexually explicit when searched in the Urban Dictionary. With all three Jonas brothers modelling new hair cuts and looks themselves, is this the generation of the old Disney stars growing into the more mature media attention of people their own age? And more importantly, is it setting a bad example for the younger generation who are still watching these stars old TV shows on the Disney Channel and may be seeing these stars as their role models? The explicit engagement that these stars are being known for in the media is rapidly increasing and could arguably be influencing an entire youth generation in the wrong way.
