Bella Thorne is everywhere these days!

Disney has released images and details of the newest princess, and some are not happy. The company had announced plans for a new Disney Latina princess, Sofia, that will be starring in a Disney Channel movie, followed by a TV series on both the Disney Channel and Disney Junior.

In an ad that both confuses us and ruins childhood memories, a Venezuelan plastic surgery center gives the mermaid princess Ariel, well, some major work. The ad for Clinica Dempere shows Ariel escaping from Ursula the seawitch and swimming straight for the clinic -- where she's given not only legs, but seemingly bigger boobs, a nose job and probably some Botox, to boot.

Starlet Bella Thorne arrived at Disney Channel's Radio Rebel sporting a very stylish yet effortless look. The young actress posed wearing a casual button down shirt with a trendy metallic blazer to dress up the outfit.

In order to keep up with the fast-growing and ever-changing Latino demographic, Univision and Disney are currently discussing the possibility of launching a 24-hour news channel for English-speaking Latinos in the U.S. The proposed new channel comes in light of the 2010 census results, which highlights that Latinos born in the U.S. make up for 60 percent of our nation’s growth in the last ten years. The news channel may premiere just in time for the presidential election in November, but neither company has gone on the record to confirm.
