Collectively, the teenage former Mouseketeers sold tens of millions of albums and embarked on fully fledged adult careers. Now well into their 30s, Timberlake, Spears, and Aguilera remain everywhere, and set a template for transitioning from kid-friendly TV to teen-pop to megastar in the modern age. Probably because the Mouseketeer formula has become remarkably easy to replicate, both by Disney and rival Nickelodeon, and the airwaves have become overcrowded with grown-up versions of childhood stars. As VP at music marketing agency MAC Presents, I spend a lot of time working with brands and media partners to gauge the relative marketability and, just as crucially, marketer-friendliness quotient of artists, culled from years of on-the-ground research from my days as a reporter for Billboard and Advertising Age. Taking into account important metrics like record sales, streaming, endorsement deals, and other less-scientific factors ability to get someone fired, anger parent groups, etc.

The Disney Channel has a "machine" in place to crank out young stars. They accomplish this through TV shows, original movies, and a record division many of their stars both act and sing. The machine is very good at what it does, as quite a few popular performers have emerged from it over the years. The thing about child stars, though, is that they eventually grow up. And when they grow up, they have to re-establish themselves as adult actors. They can't get by on mere kid cuteness anymore.
Mr Skin has them all! The hottest exotic Asian and Japanese celebrities exposed on camera! And now this milf does hardcore sex on camera woohoo!

If you were anywhere between kid and tween in the 90's, you had the honour of being subjected to a slew of Nickelodeon shows. The shows were cheesy as hell and featured a lot of epically bad hairstyles. They were the types of shows you watched in secret; afraid to admit that you secretly enjoyed following The Secret Life of Alex Mack. They were the shows you watched when you were home sick, or snowed in, or when there was nothing else on TV. Some of them actually weren't that bad. Running for 7 seasons, this Canadian gem spooked us with eerie tales told over campfire by The Midnight Society. As we got older, so did the stars who made their acting debuts on Nickelodeon and Disney. Amanda Bynes, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande and Keke Palmer are just a handful of the tween queens who have blossomed into successful starlets. Fame and scandal often go hand in hand, and these stars were not exempt from getting caught red-handed in compromising situations. Wardrobe slips, loose lips and drunken missteps are par for the course for these former tots.
