Demi Lovato and Trace Cyrus Call It Splitsville



Demi Lovato's brief romance with Miley Cyrus' older brother Trace is over. "Demi is one of my good friends and I definitely became very, very close with her in the past few months," says Trace, a singer with the pop group Metro Station.

"It's something I really wanted to make work, but unfortunately, we both have very busy schedules," Trace told People. "We're both on tour right now. I'm always on the other side of the world and so is she, so it just seemed like something that can't work out at this time."

Cyrus also cited the couple's age difference as a cause for the break-up. Demi, 16, is a lot younger than me," says Trace, 20. "When someone is that much younger, you're looking for different things in relationships. Maybe when she's older and we've both matured, we'll be looking for the same thing and it can work out."

Miley, Demi, Selena, and pals promote Disney Channels Friends For Change



Leave it to the Disney Channel to come up with yet another great idea to inspire our kids. This summer, you may have noticed some public service announcements on the Disney Channel, featuring the kids from your favorite shows talking about ways to help your environment. This is the Disney Channel Friends For Change campaign. It encourages our kids to "reg and pledge to help protect the planet on which we stand." It is broken down into projects, such as climate, water, waste, and habitat.

Here is how it works:

First, go to Disney Channel.com/friendsforchange, and click on register and pledge. There you can click on get started, and view the projects that are currently being focused on. At the end of each project, your child gets to vote on how Disney will spend a quarter million dollars on projects related to the environment. The idea is, one friend is powerful, a million friends is unstoppable.

Choosing the pledge finder will connect you to find individual tasks connected with the project as a whole which your child can do to help do their part. The pledges are pretty simple, such as making sure your mom and dad only run the dishwasher and the washing machine when they are full, or turning off lights when your not in the room. It also tells your child how, when, and why these tasks are important to the big picture. Carpooling with your friends to school or riding your bike helps cut down on cars on the road. This can save up to 790 pounds of emissions a year. Multiply that by a million friends, and our kids can save up to 395,000 tons of carbon monoxide a year.

Aside from doing good for our planet, it gives kids the chance to feel identified with some of their much loved heroes from Disney, such as Miley Cyrus, Selana Gomez, the Jonas Brothers, and Demi Levato, who perform the original song in the Friends for Change music video, "Send It On." There are still two projects which haven't even begun yet, so log on to disneychannel.com with your kids and find out how you can help out. Its a great way for kids to get involved.

Camilla Belle Rep Confirms Joe Jonas Break Up



A rep for Camilla Belle has confirmed that the actress and boyfriend Joe Jonas has parted ways. Through the couple never confirmed they were dating, the rep says rumors of a split are true but Belle and Jonas remain friends.

Joe prompted rumors of a break-up during a gig in Detroit, Mich., on Sunday when he changed the lyrics to break-up song "Much Better."

Instead of singing "Get a rep for breakin' hearts, now I'm done with superstars," presumed to have been a reference to his relationship with Swift, he crooned, "Get a rep for breakin' hearts, now I'm done with movie stars."
He was also missing a necklace the actress had given him as a present. When approached by E! Online correspondent Marc Malkin to confirm the rumors, Jonas' spokesperson confirmed the split, but insisted, "There is no third party involved."

“Yes, it’s true, they have broken up. There is no third party involved and they care deeply about each other and will remain friends,” Belle’s rep Brad Cafarelli confirmed. The pair began dating last November following the Jonas Brothers singers split from Taylor Swift.

Jonas, 19, is currently on the Jonas Brothers World Tour with his brothers and bandmates Kevin Jonas and Nick Jonas. Both brothers have been getting serious with their girlfriends – Kevin recently proposed to Danielle Deleasa while Nick is said to have given girlfriend Miley Cyrus a “promise ring.” Belle, 22, is currently filming Father of Invention with Kevin Spacey.

Disney Channel Talent Search In The UK



Disney wants to find the “next Zac Efron” in the UK, with plans to produce shows in the vein of High School Musical and Hannah Montana that target boys.

Jonathan Bosely, vice president of programming, Disney UK and Ireland, told delegates at the Showcomotion conference in Sheffield, England that he is seeking UK - produced international formats for the new Disney XD channel, including entertainment series focused on music and sports.

“It’s about aspirational characters, great stories and a sense of achievement. What is the High School Musical for boys? The Hannah Montana? These are the things we’re really interested in – supercharged entertainment formats,” he said.

Disney XD is due to launch in the UK in the autumn and will replace Jetix, targeting boys between six and 14, with a sweet spot of eight to 12. Orion Ross, vice president of original series, Disney Channels EMEA, added that the channel is seeking programs that offer a “sense of achievement and accomplishment and moving onto the next level – and also cool stuff like sports.”

Meanwhile Disney Channel is seeking shows that will help it “consolidate” its bedtime slots in the face of competition from BBC Children’s and Nickelodeon, as well as series that will break new, UK talent.

Bosely said: “We want formats that enable us to break new kid talent. We want to find the next Zac Efron in the UK and we think we can. It’s about empowering kids and kids want to sing, they want to dance they want to perform… We’re looking for formats that obviously work in the UK but can also work around Europe and globally.”

One of the Jonas Brothers will soon be tying the knot!



Kevin Jonas has stunned fans of the Jonas Brothers by asking his girlfriend Danielle Deleasa to marry him.

The romantic pop star, 21, reportedly dropped to one knee after showing up unannounced at Deleasa's home in New Jersey on Wednesday morning, after flying in from a Tuesday night concert in Vancouver, Canada. He presented her with a custom-made, cushion-cut diamond ring, according to People.com

The former hairdresser admits that, when she first met Kevin, she didn't know who the Jonas Brothers were. Kevin pursued her after seeing her walking on the beach with a flower in her hair. Thrilled Jonas tells the publication, "It was tough performing last night, knowing that I was going to ask the biggest question in my life to the most amazing girl in the world.

"She said yes, yes, yes, like, 500 times super fast in a row." The couple met in 2007 while vacationing with their families in the Bahamas, and Kevin has the blessing of his parents.

A statement from Denise and Kevin Jonas, Sr. reads, "Our hearts are filled with joy today and we are happy to share with you that our son Kevin has asked Danielle for her hand in marriage. It is such a blessing that she will be joining our family."
