Bonnie Says: Good For You, Demi Lovato, For Seeking Treatment– You ARE a Great Role Model!

Tue, November 2, 2010 2:00pm EDT by 11 Comments

Demi Lovato hasn’t been like a certain other teen pop star who DOESN’T want to be a role model. She has always embraced the opportunity that her talent and fame have given her to reach out to fans.

Before bullying became the topic du jour this month, Demi recognized the terrible toll that bullying could take. Bravely, she admitted that she had been bullied by mean girls at her middle school, and went on to make public service announcements about her experience on behalf of the Pacer Center’s Teens Against Bullying organization.

“It was the darkest period of my life so this past September I decided to home school” because of it. She described her experience as “verbal harassment,” but also talked about a hate petition against her.

Bubbly Demi bravely talked about her bullying experience on The View on July 23, 2009. She said, “my mom was there for me every step of the way” when she coped with the mean girls who tried to ruin her life. Let’s hope her mother, Dianna Hart DeLaGarza. is giving her the mega-support she needs right now.

Demi — star of the Camp Rock films — has taken her role model responsibilities seriously and now I’m glad she’s taking her own personal issues seriously and is getting the help she needs! Wishing you the best, Demi!

Ahahaha. you Demi Lovato fans…I used to love her too but god she is not perfect. Do you even know what she did? She PUNCHED a backup dancer (Alex Welch, known as bgirlshorty) because she thought she tattle-taled on one of her private inappropriate parties. And Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas are not at fault, as both Demi and Ashley have confirmed, there is no feud other than that between Ashley and the incessant rudeness she gets from you Demi fans. If you guys were really Demi fans, you would not resort to bullying to stick up for someone whose life was destroyed by bullying.

Why are you covertly bashing Miley? Miley is not a bad influence. She is growing up like other girls her age. She is allowed to make mistakes and learn from them. Are you people who run this website seriously going to tell me when you were in your teens & twenties you didnt do the things miley’s doing that you think are “bad?” She not doing drugs or out drinking till 5 in the morning. She wants to dance so she goes places where she can do that.

Leave the girl alone

PS I think Demi did the right thing.

Dembo is NOT A ROLE MODEL. She is annoying. It is humiliating that she can’t let Joe go. Dembo you seriously need to go away and take that huge horse mouth with you. Ashley Greene runs circles around you and she is better then you could ever hope to be!!!!!!!!
