Dylan Sprouse, former star of Disney’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, “accidentally” leaked nude photos on twitter. I put accidentally in quotation marks, because come ON. He just went on a tirade about how Joe Jonas was full of bullshit and I guess he realized that got him a lot of attention and so what’s the next move when a former Disney kid gets attention? They get nude. “Accidentally” nude.
After the pics got taken down, he tweeted the following:
Whoops, guess I’m not 14 and fat anymore
I messed up… but I’d be a fool not to own up to it. Got to move past it I suppose
move past it in a sexy way tho ~~ pic.twitter.com/rG7mgjyvZM [the link goes to a photo of him as a baby]
At least you can’t see my third testicle
And then, as if all those tweets weren’t enough, he decided to link to an essay he wrote about the pics with this tweet:
Some “highlights” from the essay:
First off, I will state that the reason I’m making light of the situation is because I don’t think what I did was wrong. To be blunt, I was proud of my progress in the gym, thought I looked hot, and wanted to share it. [...]
Secondly, the real problem here was not me sending my pictures to someone, but rather, sending them to the WRONG someone. The real travesty is a misplaced trust, and while I am certainly to blame for it, it is a shame that my private life was somehow forcibly dragged into the public’s perception of me. [...]
Finally though, and I think that this is the most important part, because of this, I gained 200,000 followers on twitter, 40,000 followers on tumblr, and 20,000 followers on instagram…. It seems to me that the majority of people are actually praising this act as some sort of device to receive fame (or infamy). Why? I have no clue …
My GOD, this KID. SHUT UP. Like the Josh Hutcherson nudes, NO ONE CARES. You don’t have to write a treatise on it. I find this kid and his reaction incredibly annoying and he obviously leaked the nudes on purpose. Oh, and if that’s not enough, he also posted one of the nude pics with his essay. I’m not kidding and I’m not posting it here, because NO, DYLAN. NO.

Joe Jonas recently wrote an article all about what it was like being a Disney
product kid. He talked about how Miley introduced him to weed. He also said that Disney executives didn’t want him to ever grow up. From his NY Times article, via Us:
I had to shave every day because they wanted me to pretend like I was 16 when I was 20 (when the show was done, I cut my hair off and grew as much of a beard as I could).
Fellow Disney alum Dylan Sprouse of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody is calling shenanigans on Mr. Joe Jonas. Actually, to be more accurate, he’s calling bullshit. The 21-year-old wrote on his Tumblr (sorry but LOL, Tumblr),
I think it’s bullshit that they [The Jonas Brothers] were being robbed of choice or creativity. If they wanted to, they could have told Disney ‘NO.’ [My brother and fellow co-star] Cole and I did this hundreds of times and we ended up all right. The only reason they didn’t is because, like many of the people on that channel, I think they fell for the allure of fame. Granted, Cole and I had been acting our entire lives, so we saw it as a means to an end (money making) rather than an opportunity to become successful.
Sure, Dylan. And which executive/producer/handler is holding your strings? You puppet! You Pinocchio! PULL DA STRINGSSS! PULL DA STRINGSSS!
Yo, any day I can work in an Ed Wood reference into a Jonas Brothers piece is a day I can feel great about myself. Oh and Mr. Sprouse isn’t done, he goes on:
Nowadays artists just assume they have to do what they are told by their proprietors because there is a ‘rigid structure to achievement.’ It is nothing more than a scheme to rob you of your individuality and capitalize the gain they acquire from such treachery. If you believe this, not only are you incredibly foolish, but you are a BAD ARTIST. Individuality is modernity’s most interesting trait regarding artwork and so so many talented individuals realize this.
You do not have to become something else to be successful. Not only is it not too late for them to redefine themselves now, it was never too late. What that article felt like was: ‘Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, still shame on you.’
Somebody knows some big words!
