Demi Lovato says Disney normalized eating disorders, couldn’t return to the network!!! Demi Lovato revealed the real reason she never returned to Disney Channel was because she believed eating disorders were “terrifyingly normalized” for the young stars.
Lovato, 27, battled with an eating disorder prior to landing major gigs on Disney like “Camp Rock” and “Sonny With a Chance.”
In 2010, she got in a fight with a background dancer, which caused her to go to rehab for the first time. The decision meant that she had to take a break from filming “Sonny with a Chance,” but she never returned.
“I kind of looked around and had a moment where I was like, ‘Wow. This is so terrifyingly normalized,’” Lovato told Bustle in regards to the pressure Disney stars felt to remain slim.
She continued: “I came out of the experience with the choice of talking about my struggles or my journey with the possibility of helping people, or keeping my mouth shut and going back to Disney Channel. And I was like that doesn’t feel authentic to me. So I chose to tell my story.”
