American Cheerleader

With peeps like Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus exiting Disney Channel, it was only right that a new “it girl” be crowned and that new girl is…Debby Ryan.  She’s about to star in a new Disney show called Jessie and unlike on Suite Life, she’s the entire focus of the show. And just to give a little more proof of Debby’s rise to fame, she’s American Cheerleader‘s October 2011 cover girl. No big.

Catch highlights from Debby’s interview (she claims she discovered Bieber!) and peep some gorg pics from the shoot!

On a tiny rumor that she was the first Belieber: “It’s true! I write a music blog and I’m kind of a YouTube creep. So, I saw this little kid singing “With You” by Chris Brown and I was obsessed with him. I thought he was super precious and very vocally talented. I ran around on [Suite Life] set with my iPhone showing people Justin Bieber. Everyone was like, “Oh my gosh, he’s amazing!” A couple months later his music video with Usher came out and I was like, “No fair!” It’s just so cool to watch the whole thing happen.”

On being Disney’s new “It Girl”: “Even before the Selena’s and Demi’s and Miley’s, there was Hilary Duff and Shia LaBeouf. And sidenote—I love Raven’s career. But I feel like instead of them setting standards, it’s sort of like they’ve carved their own paths. For me, I’m all about longevity. I’m just trying to create my own little venue.”

On whether or not she got hate from Suite Life co-star Cole Sprouse’s fans: “Initially I did. Some people were like, “Who’s this new girl?” Now I get the sweetest messages from Cole fans like, “We wouldn’t let anyone date Cole, except you!” They’ve totally welcomed me into this whole Sprouse fandom, which is cool. I was actually the first “Suite Life” cast member on Twitter, and kind of influenced the guys to get on there, so people are really happy about that.”

    DEBBY will be the next it girl, she has what it takes and is a good role model nothing fake she is great with her fans she works hard to get where she is going and i believe it is to the top. love you Debby keep up the good work.

  • Kevin

    I really don’t see what all the hipe is about this girl. She’s annoying, she’s big time fake & her acting is really BAD, at it’s best moments. Also her looks are closely that to over the top drag queens.
    I don’t see this person going further in acting or singing outside Disney. What I do see is drugs, alcohol & sexy pics after Disney boots her to the curb. God help her.

    Also that “Johnny Dad” down below sounds as if he’s masking his Fatal Attraction to Debby by saying HIS kids are fans. Obsessed much PERV!!!

    • Brittany

      Did you even read this article? I almost didn’t, but I’m glad I did, I’m actually seeing another side of her. Debby actually is really down to earth and she seems to have something really smart to say, but not calculated or preplanned. She appears to be pretty smart as well as a deep thinker. The fact that she is a bit older when she’s becoming the “it” girl may help with the going crazy thing and she does seem to be more grounded. She started out very green in her acting, over coached but she has a lot of levels that other Disney stars don’t seem to be able to reach. I see her improving a lot and able to do comedy and dramatic roles as well. Only time will actually tell but I am willing to bet money that she will be around for a long time.

  • Brittany

    I can’t believe she is real. She is so down to earth but she is gorgeous, funny and smart. I hope she goes really far. She deserves it in every way.

    • de’asia donaldson

      yes i agree with u brittany she can make it to the top if she just believes

  • Johnny Dad

    I’m a dad of two Disney fan, so my kids have been following Debby’s music Blog for awhile. She writes like an author and can analyze the industry, bands, talent, musicians, music, and song writing. She really does troll for new and lesser known talent, interviews them, and writes about them in her Blog. She didn’t write about Bieber, but she has not been caught in a lie in the last three years. So YES I believe that she FOUND OUT about him before he was big and told people. I wouldn’t say “discovered” like Chris Brown did. She is definitely the new Disney Girl. After Selena, Miley, Demi, she has the most Twitter Followers and has done three Disney Movies (16 Wishes, Suite Life, Radio Rebel). She was a series regular on SLOD, did guest star roles on other shows, and has the lead in Jessie. She was in two movies released in theaters and now on DVD (Longshots and What if). She wrote, produced, and sung 5 songs, did Disney Mania, Music videos, and the Disney Christmas Parade. She has acted, danced, and sang in Professional Theater (Broadway Lion King and a few other shows when she was 10). She has hosted award show (The Gracies). She is always doing charity work. She was an 8th grade mascot and freshman on varsity Drill Team. Then she finished high school early with an “A” average. I think she is a christian. At least there has been no reported drama (like slutty behavior or adult pics, drugs, partying, fighting) and she hasn’t even dated a Jones or Biebs. Good role model, multi talented, intelligent, funny, beautiful inside and out. I steer my kids toward her to look up to as opposed to some others who may be more popular, but seem to struggle with a drama free life.

    • Kevin

      Are you sure it”s your kids & not YOU that’s a BIG fan of Debby Ryan. You sound more obsessed with this no talent loser then your “supposed” kids. You obviously have so much to say about someone who has done so little in the entertainment field. And you’ve done some extensive background on Debby’s history that you seem to be on border line stalking. You & I’m guessing your make believe kids need to get away from the T.V. & explore the world outside some more because really, YOU are obviously in need to get a freakin LIFE!!!

      • Ashley

        Lmao!!! Yeah he does sound like a perv.

    • Ashley

      You’re a perv!!!! Leave Debby alone.

      • bria

  • courtney

  • meiner

    • Kevin

      I agree…No talent so no interest.
