Young teenage and twenty-something Disney stars owe Miley Cyrus a lot. WTF? No really. Miley was the first Disney former child star to go from wholesome to naughty. Remember ten or so years ago when she was doing Hannah Montana? She was smack in the middle of the Disney universe, a place where just about everything is squeaky clean, wholesome and gee-whiz so totally behind the times. Corny? Yes. Popular? Totally, if you are ten years old. As Miley herself has said, there was a point where she was an adult acting like a kid. But then about eight years ago, we started getting slightly racy cover shoots, then the odd leaked hacked image and the p*nis party she threw birthday boy Liam Hemsworth, culminating in that break-the-Internet twerking act at the VMAs in 2013. Now, we get Miley freeing her nipple, posing with s*x toys and, well you get it. But Miley may have been the first, but she has suddenly begun to look tame alongside some of the younger Disney stars like Zendaya Coleman, Bella Thorne, Cierra Rameriez and Maia Mitchell, who have gone from child star to bad girl s*x symbol in a flash. Like from zero to sixty in the blink of a camera lens. Here are 15 pictures that prove that young Disney stars are so not innocent anymore.
15. Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens was a wholesome teen in High School Musical. Or was she? Some say she sent nudies to Nickelodeon star Drake Bell, way back when. Then on several occasions over the last eight years or so, leaked nudes of Hudgens have shown up online. Some say they maybe could have been leaked by her publicist to give her “continued exposure”. Exposure is the very word we had in mind. Some are fairly decent underwear shots. But others are just naked, nude, in the buff, whatever. And some say worse. Now, the only thing is that if they are being leaked by her team, that must mean Vanessa is on board and cooperating. And the look on her face is… well, we wouldn’t call it wholesome.
14. Zendaya Coleman
What was she doing on that controversial cover? Zendaya means “to give thanks” in the language of Zimbabwe’s Shona people. And a lot of people have been giving thanks for Zendaya Coleman. The Shake It Up Disney star is twenty and showing definite signs of coming of age. There have been sanitized sexy magazine covers for Cosmo and edgy, sexy covers for Hunger magazine. Okay, then there was the 2016 Wonderland cover. In the full body shot, it’s just obvious she is “pleasuring herself”, if you get our meaning. Shock horror, that even eclipsed Miley’s twerking moment. As Maxim put it, “Zendaya gets handsy on controversial magazine cover”. Was she or wasn’t she? Talk about an awkward news story to watch with your mom. And the Disney child star appears to be moving on, starring in a 2017’s Spiderman: The Homecoming and alongside a very grown up Zac Efron in The Greatest Showman on Earth. Goodbye Disney. Hello world.
13. Bella Thorne – PDA, Hot Pictures And Swinging Both Ways
Another very grown up Shake It Up star: Strawberry blonde singer/actress Bella Thorne at nineteen is definitely telling the world childhood is over, finished, behind her. In 2015 she started dating actor Gregg Sulkin, who later came out as bisexual. Then last summer Bella plants a kiss on BFF Bella Pendergast, posts it on Snapchat and confirms on Twitter she too swings both ways. Later she hooks up with actor Tyler Posey for some serious PDA and on her birthday posts shots showing a love bite on her neck. What your granny used to call a “hicky”. Add to all of that things like the s*xy bikini body Galore photoshoot and 2017 films such as Amityville: The Awakening and The Babysitter, and it’s just clear that Bella is fast-tracking herself into hot and steamy stardom.
12. Cierra Ramirez
She was an adorable, if pesky, Disney child star. Then, wham! With the release of her “Faded” music video in the summer of 2016, twenty-one year old rapper Cierra Ramirez was saying adios to Jasmine from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and hello to s*xy, help the man undress, F-word we “be up” all night Cierra. Rappers Honey Cocaine and Casey Veggies were there and there are some bedroom scenes of Cierra helping a guy undress and then up close and personal in a horizontal position. If you get our meaning. Lots of s*xy bikini photoshoots followed. We’ve got the message, Cierra. From ABC Family sanitized same sex couple family The Fosters, to very grown up music star with an edge. And what about that cozy girl on girl picture with BFF Maia Mitchell? Read on.
11. Maia Mitchell – Is That A Baby Bump? And Girl On Girl
Is it just us? We think Maia Mitchell looks a lot like Selena Gomez, full of innocent (?), well innocent-looking anyway, sex appeal. In December of 2016, she was spotted sporting what could be a baby bump and toasting with water at a dinner. So, is Rudy Mancuso about to become a dad? Scary thought. The star of Disney’s Teen Beach Movie is 23-years-old and showing signs of leaving her teens and beach movies far behind her. And what about those pictures of her, girl on girl with The Fosters co-star Cierra Ramirez. Sure, they may be BFF, but it looks like there may be some more things going on. By the way, her rep would neither confirm or deny the pregnancy rumor.
10. Demi Lovato – Leaked Pictures, Girl On Girl And Alcohol
Demi Lovato was an annoying child star when she hit our screens in Barney and Friends. Some say she was a bit of a brat. By 2010, the still teenage Lovato was causing trouble on the Disney Camp Rock 2 world tour when she punched a dancer in the face. Then a couple of years later those totally embarrassing girl on girl, all loved up pictures of a very grown up, even raunchy, Demi. In 2014, we had pictures of her in bed with older boyfriend actor Wilmer Valderrama. Could it get any worse? Well, yes it could. There were very public bust ups with former BFF Selena Gomez and digs at the likes of Taylor Swift. Until a few years ago, Demi’s life was a rolling trainwreck. She seemed to be doing everything she could to grow up disgracefully.
9. Ariana Grande – Those “Leaks” And That Video
She was Cat on Sam and Cat. She was totally cute, sweet little Ariana. Or was she? Some say there is a pretty wide gap between the public Ariana Grande and the private one. She used to come on stage sucking a pacifier and wearing cute Cat ears or dress in little girl dresses and slippers. Meanwhile, behind the scenes there were rumors of nude picture leaks, which she denied, saying the pictures were fakes. She even maintained that position when in 2016 a man was convicted of stealing those pictures. See, in Ariana land, she is never wrong. Then there was her romance with rapper Big Sean that ended suddenly when he wrote lyrics praising her “billion dollar” private parts. And then there was that video… Read on.
8. Debby Ryan – DUI and Hot Photoshoots
The star of Jessie has come clean about an abusive relationship she managed to get herself out of. Then, back in April, Debby Ryan and her Audi plowed into a Mercedes on the streets of Los Angeles and when the cops did a field sobriety test, she blew eleven, three over the limit. There was a felony DUI charge because the other driver claimed to be injured. The charges were finally reduced to two counts of misdemeanor DUI. In the end, she pleaded no contest, was spared jail time, but is on probation until 2019. She was mortified and went on Twitter to apologize to fans. Then there was that Fault magazine cover, where Debby channeled a dangerously edgy rock n’ roll vibe. “So much more than just another Disney Dynamo”. As far away from innocent as you can get, we’d say.
7. Laura Marano
She was on the totally annoying Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? and Disney’s chirpy Austin & Ally. But that was then and this is now. Twenty-one and all grown up, her “Boombox” track and music video prove that the days of childhood innocence are totally and completely behind her. In stilettos and with legs that go on forever, Laura Marana is a very grown up, s*xy young woman. And there is not a bare nipple or leaked nude in sight. She has managed the transition from wholesome child star to s*xy performer with a fair amount of style and grace. Innocent? No. Classy? Definitely. And very talented as well.
6. Elizabeth Gillies
Elizabeth Gillies and Ariana Grande played side by side on Victorious. Back then, she was the girl next door-type. She and Grande became BFF on the show and the friendship stuck. Now all grown up, as her s*xy photoshoots prove, Gillies and Grande still hang out a lot. Then there was “that” video of the two kissing that Ariana says she accidentally posted to Instagram. Of course, Ariana would never do anything wrong. And even if she does, she denies it or has an excuse. So, some wondered exactly what was going on between the two. Even though Ariana plays Miss Goody Two Shoes, she (and Gillies) are big girls now. So, maybe, just maybe? Nobody seems to be confirming or denying.
5. Aly Michalka
Aly and Amanda (A.J.) Michalka were an adorable singing duo. Ally went on to do Phil of the Future and then did a more grown-up stint on Two and a Half Men as usually-in-underwear Brooke. But did we see that Maxim magazine shoot coming? No, we didn’t. There Ally Michalka is in all her glory, in various states of dress and undress. She is hot, edgy and more than a little dangerous looking and seems to be enjoying herself tremendously. The guys at the magazine loved her, enthused about the shoot and said when others saw what she was really and truly about, they would become card carrying Michalka-holics. We can certainly see their point. All grown up and so totally NOT innocent.
4. Veronica Dunne
Veronica Dunne stars alongside Zendaya in K.C. Undercover. The twenty-one year old, like Miley Cyrus before her, is an adult playing teenage roles. But then, there are those photoshoots. Hot, steaming hot, photoshoots. And when she and boyfriend, The Young and the Restless actor Max Ehrich, went to Hawaii, there was all that PDA, her nearly naked backside in the surf and a picture of nude Max, taken from the back with the caption “freethebunz”. Nice shot, Veronica. Reportedly the two were taking in the beach scene from their Ritz Carlton hotel balcony. It’s clear the two are totally all loved up. No word on what, if anything, Veronica was wearing on that balcony.
3. Dylan Sprouse – Bizarre Selfies
Dylan and Cole Sprouse were the oh-so-cute twins who played Zack and Cody on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Dylan was bad boy Zack, the kid who was always in hot water on the show. He’s still up to his neck in it. A while back some bizarre selfies appeared online showing one picture of Dylan flexing his muscles in the bathroom mirror and another (apparently in the buff) one where he seems to be fondling his private parts. And it happened more than once. So, what was going on with him? Hack? Self-induced leak? As for brother Cole, he Tweeted a reaction to the obvious minimalist state of certain body parts, simply saying “Cold in that bathroom?” That’s brotherly love for you.
2. Adrienne Bailon
Adrienne Bailon was a Cheetah Girl, on the show of the same name. It was a Disney squeaky clean version of a wacky girl group. It was cute and fun enough. But then New York Daily News reported that the twenty-something was suing mad. Why? Seems her laptop had been stolen from a luggage cart at JFK International Airport in New York and was returned hours later by someone demanding $1,000. All of that is bad enough, but then those naked and near-naked pictures of Bailon, obviously in a hotel room and obviously not alone, began appearing. “It’s not a scenario where she… leaked the photos for attention,” Bailon’s rep told the paper. “We’re pursuing legal action.” But against who? We doubt. Anyway, some suspected a self-induced, get-attention kind of leak.
1. Kelli Berglund
She is in the hugely popular Lab Rats, a rising young star who many think will go far. But earlier this year, she was arrested, maybe a little worse for the wear, with a fake ID Trying to buy alcohol. Did we mention she was only twenty at the time? Legal for certain activities, but not for buying or drinking alcohol. It all happened at California’s Coachella Music Festival. She got a free picture, courtesy of the police and then went straight back to the party at the festival and then to the Paper magazine party the next day. Some people learn from their mistakes. Some just continue to party.
