Demi Lovato has seemingly exposed Disney over how the giant media company controlled her personal life.

This Wednesday, August 24, 2022, the American actress-singer will appear on Alex Cooper‘s Call Her Daddy podcast. Today, on August 23, Cooper revealed Lovato’s appearance on the podcast and released a small teaser clip.

In the teaser clip, Lovato initially talked about how Disney had their say on her personal life back when she was only a child star. Cooper first welcomed Lovato by saying, “Demi Lovato, welcome to Call Her Daddy,” to which Lovato replied, “Thank you.”

A small intro clip from Lovato’s Disney Channel show was shown, after which the actress said, “It was the golden era of Disney. It was like [That’s So Raven] and Hilary Duff, High School Musical, Selena [Gomez] was on [Wizards of Waverly Place], and Hanna Montana had just happened.”

She then added that she knew her life was about to change. Cooper then asked, “What pieces of your personal life did Disney have a say on?”

Lovato sighed deeply and replied, “Ohhhh, that pressure of you are replaceable was always there, and I was paying for the roof over my whole family’s head. I would even go as far to say like there was a brainwashing element to it.”

“They like barricaded me in my hotel room. They put furniture outside of my door so that I could not get out,” she concluded.

Around a week ago, Lovato reflected on her time as a Disney star and advised the current young Disney stars during her interview with PopCrush on August 17. Reflecting on her time, she said, “It’s more important to have a personal life than it is a career at that age.”

“I think that’s what got lost in the era of Disney when I was in it. We were all working so hard, running ourselves into the ground.” After that, she mentioned that she was so busy being a young Disney star that she didn’t get to “appreciate the journey.”

Lovato continued, “I didn’t have a lot of fun in my downtime. I was often thinking about what I needed to do next.” She claimed that there always was the pressure to “look a certain way,” “be a certain way,” and “act a certain way.”

She also asserted that young stars usually don’t get to live their “life as a teenager” or “experience childhood” without being “under a microscope.” After saying that, she began to advise the young generation of Disney stars.

Lovato said, “If you want to be a teenager, be a teenager. If you want to do this for a living, maybe wait a little bit until you’re older so you can have life experience under your belt. Take it easy. You don’t have to be on top of the world. Enjoy your time right now. Be present.”

Returning to Lovato’s upcoming appearance on the Call Her Daddy podcast, the singer also talked about her recent single ’29.’ Cooper first recited a part of the song’s lyrics that read; 

“Too young to drink wine/Just five years a bleeder, student and a teacher/Far from innocent, what the [expletive] ‘s consent?/Numbers told you not to, but that didn’t stop you.”

The podcast host asked, “What inspired you to write this song?” Lovato answered, “I have never talked about this before, but if you are a young girl and you think that it’s sexy and fun to date older men, it’s not okay.”

The Albuquerque native dropped her single ’29’ on August 17, 2022, three days before her 30th birthday, on August 20. After the song was released, many began to speculate if the song was about Lovato’s ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama.

Another part of the song’s lyrics read, “Finally twenty-nine. Funny, just like you were at the time. Thought it was a teenage dream, just a fantasy. But was it yours or was it mine? Seventeen, twenty-nine.”

Lovato and Valderrama first met during a PSA shoot when the former was 17 years of age, and the latter was 29 — they officially began dating when Lovato was 18. And the lyrics mentioned above resonate with their age when they first met.

As of this writing, Lovato hasn’t confirmed or denied the speculation that the song is about her former partner. Furthermore, Valderrama is also yet to address these rumors.

Kaylee Bryant Reveals Her Real Name, Says She Regretted Changing It

American actress Kaylee Bryant recently surprised her fans and followers by sharing interesting details about her name.

On November 30, 2023, Bryant shared a revealing post featuring herself in a white t-shirt and blue jeans, where she disclosed a surprising revelation about her actual last name.

In the caption, the actress unveiled that her actual last name isn’t Bryant. She explained that when she was 11 years old, she was advised that having the last name Kaneshiro would hinder her prospects as an actor.

In response, she quickly jotted down a random name on a napkin, ultimately choosing Bryant as her new last name. Reflecting on this decision, she expressed regret, acknowledging that she failed to grasp the significance of erasing a substantial part of her identity at such a young age.

Now, with a newfound understanding, the actress declared that there is no better time than the present to reintroduce herself authentically.

Revealing her true last name as Kaylee Kaneshiro (pronounced kah-neh-she-row), she concluded the post by embracing her real name and expressing love for the identity she had temporarily set aside.

In response to Kaneshiro’s post, a heartfelt comment surfaced, with one person expressing, “Your real name is beautiful; thank you for sharing your story with the world. We love you and your name.”

Likewise, another individual chimed in, saying, “I’ve always loved your real last name, and it’s even more admirable that you’re standing true to it!! Starting tomorrow, I’ll be calling you Kaylee Kaneshiro.”

Among these comments, a few individuals expressed curiosity about Kaylee’s ethnicity. One person congratulated her and posed a question, saying, “Do you have Japanese roots? According to Google, your original last name is a word in Japanese.”

Explore Kaylee Kaneshiro’s ethnicity

Kaneshiro is of Japanese ethnicity, with a hint of German, Irish, English, and Danish. During her appearance in a Josie-centric episode, she opened up about her heritage. She revealed her fluent proficiency in the Japanese language, developed over years of speaking it.

Similarly, with her grandfather being Okinawan, she has been immersed in Japanese culture throughout her life.

Engaging with Soji Arai, a fellow actor from Japan, during the episode, Kaneshiro expressed the joy of reconnecting with her roots and reviving her conversational skills in Japanese that had somewhat diminished over time.

Moreover, the actress shared her genuine interest in observing people’s reactions when she speaks Japanese. Emphasizing her authentic intentions, she clarified that she is not aiming to symbolize any particular identity or movement. Instead, her focus is on fostering a connection with viewers.

For her, the ultimate satisfaction comes when a mixed-race girl watches her on screen, resonates with her portrayal, and feels a sense of comfort in their own identity.

Brief on Kaylee Kaneshiro’s early life

Kaneshiro was born in Orange County, California. In terms of her education, she embarked on homeschooling at the age of 12, a decision made to accelerate and customize her learning experience.

Remarkably, by the time she reached fifteen, she had already transitioned to junior high as a sophomore. Although details about the university from which she graduated remain undisclosed, it is reported that she completed her graduation.

Post her formal education, the actress significantly increased her involvement in the entertainment industry. This progression marked a pivotal moment in her career as she transitioned from her academic pursuits to actively pursuing opportunities in the world of entertainment.

Mads Lewis and Tana Mongeau Squash Old Beef and Become Friends

Mads Lewis and Tana Mongeau have squashed their beef!

The two had a lot of drama going on between them, but now, it looks like they are friends. They initially started keeping their history behind when Lewis was spotted at Mongeau’s Halloween Party.

Since then, fans and followers of the two had been wondering if they had squashed their beef and become friends. However, neither of them had confirmed it.

But now, both of them seemingly told their fans and followers that they are back to being friends via TikTok. On November 30, 2023, both took to the platform to upload a video of each other.

Mongeau posted a TikTok of them looking at each other awkwardly with the caption, “When we finally squashed the beef and realized we are alike…” Lewis, on the other hand, made a video of the two saying they hate each other but confessing that they don’t at each other’s faces.

Fans and followers of the duo are happy that their idols are back to being friends. A person wrote on Instagram, “Make love, not war or whatever that saying is.”

Fans of Lewis lauded her for being the bigger person and squashing the beef with Mongeau. One of them wrote, “Mads forgives everyone. She’s such a better person bcs the things that they’ve done to her is.”

Likewise, another commented, “Whether y’all like it or not mads is mature enough to forgive garbage [expletive] people have done to her and actually fix/mend her relationships. She did the same with Nessa [Barrett] and other people who did her dirty.”

Similarly, another person penned, “Mads is being a bigger person and not having any animosity with ppl. Squashing beef and not wanting to have problems with ppl isn’t fake. it’s called maturity. I believe she shouldn’t be friends with someone of these ppl but it’s her decision at the end of the day.” 

Although the brunt of Lewis and Mongeau’s feud intensified in the summer of 2023, it began with a tweet Lewis sent following the death of influencer Cooper Noriega. Because Lewis and Noriega had supposedly been closest friends, his followers created a memorial video at the time, set to music by Jaden Hossler, Lewis’s ex-boyfriend. 

However, Lewis took advantage of the situation to disparage Hossler and Noriega’s fans rather than trying to diffuse the tension at a trying moment.

She tweeted, “Y’all know nothing! Please stop using Jaden’s music over edits of Cooper it’s disrespectful. You’re a hypocrite, Jaden, a [expletive] hypocrite,” according to  The original TikTokroom.

Mongeau naturally started the fight when she retweeted Mads and made fun of the mourning influencer by asking, “? who tweets this.”

Lewis and Mongeau also often talk to the BFFs Podcast, where most controversy between the influencers tends to start. After bringing up Mongeau’s Coachella ensemble, Dave Portnoy and Josh Richards inquired about Lewis’ opinion. 

They joked about how she “hates everything,” but she promptly shot it down. Mads said, “I don’t hate everything and I don’t have beef with Tana.” “She just switches up on people so fast. You know what I’m saying? I was really good friends with her, actually,” she added.

Many fans who rushed to the comments section to express their thoughts about Mongeau and Lewis agreed that the former had a reputation for switching up. 

Then, Mongeau decided to defend herself on CANCELLED, her podcast. She claimed that the two met on social media and exchanged a couple of story replies.

Then, they had one phone call where Mongeau was drunk. During that call, Lewis explained about Hossler, who used to be her ex, dating his new girlfriend at the time, Nessa Barrett.

Mongeau said, “We never hung out when the sun is out, we’ve never hung out alone, I couldn’t tell you anything about her. Respectfully, Mads, you don’t know me well enough to know what me switching up would look like.”

Lewis then posted on her TikTok a snapshot of a string of texts between them, in which it appears they are close friends. Tana also texted, “U KNOW I GOT YOU FOR LIFE,” something that most acquaintances wouldn’t say to one another during the conversation. 

Additionally, they mentioned several phones, suggesting they each had various phone numbers. Mongeau then went on the BFFs podcast to claim they were not as good of a friend as Lewis said.

She claimed they had hung out two times and met each other six times. Regardless, she indicated that she had no bad blood against the influencer.

Now that the two have squashed their beef, it looks like they can be genuine and close friends moving forward.

TikTok Star Gabby Morrison Gets Engaged to Boyfriend Luke Joseph

Gabby Morrison is getting married soon!

She announced her engagement to her boyfriend Luke Joseph on Instagram on November 29, 2023. She uploaded a series of photos of Joseph proposing to her and also posted a picture of her engagement ring with the caption, “I’m a fiancée.”

The comment section of her post was filled with congratulatory messages, wishing her the best for her upcoming future. Joseph also posted a video showing his plans before she asked Morrison to be his wife.

He posted a countdown video from 24 hours before getting engaged. He showed the process which included getting Morrison’s nails done, celebrating their anniversary on a yacht, and then to the beach where he had planned their engagement.

He had prepared a heart-shaped structure made with roses at the beach with a sign that said, “Will you marry me?” The pathway to the heart was bordered with candles and red roses, adorned with rose petals.

He also had miniature fireworks on the side, while the bottom of the heart was decorated with pictures of the couple. Along with their Instagram posts, Morrison uploaded a video titled ‘I SAID YES!!! // FULL ENGAGEMENT VIDEO’ on her YouTube Channel, where she reacted to her getting engaged to her boyfriend.

She admitted that she had a gut feeling Joseph was about to propose to her when they took a small boat to the restaurant where they were going to have their engagement dinner.

On the way, Joseph showed her a video he had made for their anniversary. The video was made on Minecraft, where he detailed their entire relationship.

He said how he met the love of his life on Minecraft eight years ago and shared snippets of their friends and family wishing them the best. Morrison got emotional seeing the video.

The two then made their way to the restaurant, or so Morrison thought so. As soon as they stepped out of the boat, she saw the setup and realized that her hunch was correct —  she was getting engaged.

She then saw her parents and got emotional. Joseph gave her a small speech about how much he loved her and was happy to be her boyfriend. 

He called her his “favorite person ever” and admitted how much he loved her family as well. As a result, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.

Morrison said yes, and the two hugged, hopeful for their future. Joseph shared his experience of proposing to his partner and said that Morrison made a face that he had never seen before.

She looked very happy but wanted to cry and “burst out in tears.” Morrison said that she had never felt the way she felt while getting engaged. 

She was overwhelmingly happy so she was struggling to show her correct emotions. She thanked her partner and claimed that she had always wanted to have her engagement at a beach.

So when Joseph did that for her, she was very, very happy. Joseph admitted that the plan for engagement changed four times with two different venues.

The duo admitted that they had not comprehended them getting engaged properly since they went to Thanksgiving dinner right afterward, and the next day, they went on a cruise. 

They revealed that they were going to Disney the next day and then would have an engagement party. They promised that they would make a new video sitting down and detailing their wedding plans.

The pair started dating in November 2021. However, they went Instagram official with their relationship only in April 2022. 

Initially, they were in a long-distance relationship. But later, Joseph came to America from the UK for her. 

Since then, they have featured each other on their social media, including TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. They have also traveled to various countries together.

All in all, it looks like the couple are happy and can’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together.

Before Joseph, Morrison was in a relationship with Andre Swilley. They were in a serious relationship and were even living together in L.A.

But after dating for two years, the duo parted ways. Morrison said in a YouTube video that they broke up because she completely lost herself in the relationship.

They were constantly bickering, and the influencer was not happy at all. In the end, they parted ways, and Morrison started dating her current boyfriend, Joseph.
