Disney Star Controversy

When it comes to child stars you can't always expect them to keep that disney persona for long. The media feels there is too much of a controversy when teens and tweens enter the entertainment business they have to make sure they maintain that youthful image. It is hard for anyone to enter the entertainment industry at any age let alone a kid because they have their whole life ahead of them to be successful. The media needs to realize that kids grow eventually. When Miley Cyrus was becoming famous the media was becoming suspicious when she was coming of age. When she was performing on the pole that caused a lot of shock because most of her fan base is little kids. When she turned 18 she was legally able to smoke so when she was caught using salvia people were concerned that she was growing up to fast when it reality it is legal in the state of California to smoke salvia at 18. When Jamie Lynn Spears got pregnant at 16 it made headlines everywhere because she was a star from "Zoey 101" and also was on Nickelodeon's All That. Before she got pregnant, she was just known as Britney Spears little sister and then the roles were switched because of her fan base and who used to be her target audience from her shows. It is very difficult for kids to be on TV shows and balance their personal life, the fame, their image, their fan base all at once to please everyone when at the end of the day they are just human beings.
