It’s been scientifically proven that no one does scandal like former Disney Channel stars. I don’t know what’s in the water over there at the network, but I guess the combination of singing, dancing and acting at a young age leads you down the wrong path. One of the best Disney Channel scandals starred birthday girl Vanessa Hudgens! The girl had nude pictures of her leaked more than once, which is quite the accomplishment. Not saying the leaks were her fault, because they weren’t, but she’s got to stop hanging out with people who spread her naked body all over the internet. To celebrate the 25th birthday of Vanessa and her scandalous nature, here are the best Disney Channel star scandals ranked from least scandalous to super scandalous.
1. Hilary Duff
Hilary has remained pretty tame since leaving the Disney Channel. She’s married, looks great and has an adorable son. But we’ll never forget the pictures of what looks like her going down on her boyfriend after he proposed.
2. Selena Gomez
Selena was doing so well. She stopped babysitting Justin Bieber, finally had a number one single and went on tour. Then, it happened. Precious Selena had dropped an f-bomb onstage for all to hear (and record). Selena is free to use the f-word whenever she pleases, but the girl has still got pretty young fans and their ears just aren’t ready for that.
3. Joe Jonas
Joe revealed some pretty intense stuff in his recent interview with Vulture. But I think the real scandal here is him throwing Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus under the bus by revealing they were the people that made him smoke weed for the first time. If they wanted us to know, they would have told us. Also, I’m counting the mustache on his face as a scandal because it’s terrifying.
4. Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa is the perfect picture of taking scandals and running with them. Since the world had seen her naked, she figured, why not star in the movie Spring Breakers and release a song called “$$$ex?”
5. Zac Efron
Zac shed his Disney image a bit faster than most Disney stars do, but people still saw him as a well-rounded guy who stayed out of trouble. It was cute when he dropped a condom on the ground at The Lorax premiere because he was just so darn embarrassed about it. So consider me shocked when it came out that he allegedly went to rehab for cocaine. It just goes to show that you really don’t know anything about a celebrities’ life when the cameras aren’t around.
6. Demi Lovato
When Demi punched a girl in the face and then went to rehab for drugs and an eating disorder, the world was shocked. She had mastered looking happy in interviews so well that no one could believe it. Since then, Demi’s continued to be open about her struggles. And I think as long as she stays on the right path, she’ll end up being a great role model to everyone who’s ever struggled with anything.
7. Miley Cyrus
What scandal hasn’t this girl had? Provocative pictures? Check. Drug use? Check. Underage drinking? Check. Twerking on Robin Thicke and scarring the entire world? Check. She’s even taken it upon herself to ruin Christmas. But, she seems like she has this whole diabolical plan to take over the world and I think it’s working, so it all seems a little less scandalous.
8. Lindsay Lohan
Reigning queen of Disney scandals, Lindsay started out with a DUI and now she can’t go a year without a scandal. This year was going to end on a good note for her, but now it’s alleged that she might have hired someone to beat up Paris Hilton’s brother. So I guess I can just stopped being surprised when she messes up.
