She may be best-known for her tabloid headlines and reformed ways after years of hellraising, but did you know that Parent Trap child star Lindsay Lohan also had a go at a pop career in 2005?

She’s also shifted 196,000 albums. Biggest hit: That very first hit, Naturally, which peaked at Number 7.

5. Christina Milian
Long before she was shaking her thing on Top Of The Pops (yes, it was still going when she first appeared), Christina Milian was a regular on Disney’s Movie Surfers. After a guest spot on Ja Rule’s 2001 hit Between You And Me, Christina launched her solo career with A.M. To P.M., reaching Number 3 in January 2002. She went on to have more hits, and also co-wrote and did backing vocals on one of Jennifer Lopez’s biggest hits Play. Listen carefully and you can hear The Milian on the chorus.

4. Demi Lovato
In the mid- to late-Noughties, Demi Lovato was almost a permanent fixture on Disney TV shows. Cutting her teeth on movies like Camp Rock and hit show Sonny with a Chance, it wouldn’t be long before Demi was picking up a mic and launching a pop career. She first hit the Official Singles Chart in 2008 on a duet with Joe Jonas, This Is Me. She’s best known right now for being a judge on the US version of The X Factor, taking her place alongside Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio, but the hits keep on coming.

Biggest hit: Heart Attack peaked at Number 3 in May 2013, and has sold over 250,000 copies.
3. Miley Cyrus
So here she is, Smiley Miley, in third place in our Disney princess countdown. We’re still holding out for Ariel from The Little Mermaid and Belle from Beauty and the Beast to be our Top 2 (err, wrong kind of Disney Princess – Fairytale Ed). The daughter of Achy Breaky Heart star Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley started out, of course, on Hannah Montana, as a teenager who lived a double life, moonlighting as a famous singer. While she just missed the Top 40 as her alter ego, Miley has notched up nine hits under her own name, with no doubt more to come now that she has unleashed her Bangerz upon the world and all that twerking and whatnot. Sales: Miley’s tracks have a sales tally of 2.5 million (more than you thought, right?) which includes 430,000 as Hannah Montana. Biggest hit: Miley’s first Number 1 was We Can’t Stop back in August. It’s sold over 375,000 copies so far. Can Wrecking Ball demolish that record?
2. Christina Aguilera
As soon as the Genie was released from its Bottle, former Mickey Mouse Club star Christina Aguilera was destined for success. After that first Number 1 in 1999, Christina would go on to have three more – Dirrty, Beautiful and Lady Marmalade with Pink, Mya and Lil’ Kim. She’s scored 22 Top 40 hits, 16 of them going Top 10. Sales: She has sold over 1.9 million copies of her second album Stripped – it’s the biggest selling album out of all the artists we’ve listed here – and has shifted over 3.3 million albums in total. Albums aside, Christina has sold 6.1 million singles in the UK. Biggest hit: Christina’s biggest seller in the UK isn’t even a Number 1. Her collaboration with Maroon 5, Moves Like Jagger, has racked up a whopping 1.4 million sales since its release in 2011 – but it only got to Number 2. Solo, her top seller is Genie In A Bottle – her very first Number 1 has sold 694,000 copies.
1. Britney Spears
Well, look who it is. Fancy seeing you here, Britney. Yes, it comes as no surprise that taking the biggest crown of all the Disney princesses is none other than Britney Spears, another breakout star of the Mickey Mouse Club. Since her first smash in 1999 with …Baby One More Time, Brit has clocked up 28 Top 40 hits on the Official Singles Chart, with 22 of those going Top 10 and six of them hitting Number 1. And it looks like there are more to come. She’s about to release her eighth studio album and has signed to do a two-year residency in Las Vegas called Britney Spears: Piece of Me. New single Work Bitch is coming soon. Sales: Britney’s singles sales weigh in at 8.1 million, putting her comfortably on her throne. She’s shifted 4.9 million albums and her new one is on the way. Biggest hit: Her top seller is still …Baby One More Time, which has sold over 1.5 million copies.

Montgomery Media writes an article interviewing Disney starlet Bridgit Mendler: With such a prolific profile at the age of 20, Mendler has found success at nearly every turn. “Good Luck Charlie,” the Disney sitcom in which she stars, showcases both of her best talents as she also belts out the show’s theme song, “Hang in There Baby.” Not that it’s the first time Disney has realized what a talented young lady it has on its roster. Two years ago it was Mendler’s voice that could be heard throughout most of the Disney Channel movie “Lemonade Mouth,” and its corresponding soundtrack. And as she served as co-writer for her album “Hello My Name Is…,” it was obvious listeners were pleased to make her acquaintance when the debut CD dropped at number 30 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album’s first single “Ready or Not” is a certified platinum hit song. And all before her 21st birthday.
Imagining this article as a time capsule, she has a simple phrase to send to her future self. “Please make changes that stay true with who you are.” While navigating through busy Los Angeles traffic, Mendler mentions that staying true hasn’t been a problem so far, despite what people might think goes along with the territory of being a successful entertainer. “People sometimes ask if things have changed, but they really haven’t. I still feel so normal. I guess the one thing is sometimes people come up to me and ask for a picture or something, but it’s really a non-disturbance to what lifestyle I’ve really had since I first started working for Disney four years ago,” Mendler said.
Not that the impact of being a Disney star hasn’t hit her yet. Mendler is inundated with Twitter and Facebook messages every minute from young fans around the world who watch her every day on the Disney Channel. “[The cast] has really turned into a family,” she explained, “so to see other people respond to that family is so cool. They wind up knowing more about our family than we do just because there’s so many episodes, sometimes we forget. People are caring about the characters and what they say and do, which is really cool.”
On Aug. 29 at the Keswick Theatre, local followers of Mendler and her music will be in for a treat when she mixes the fan favorites from her album with covers from such artists she respects like Ellie Goulding and Neon Trees, but it’s JT whom she looks up to the most. “I really admire Justin Timberlake’s career. I think he’s done really great things with the opportunities that he’s had and I think he makes great music and he really chooses smart movie roles. And I love that he’s on ‘SNL’!” Maybe in time it’ll be Mendler shouting on NBC, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” If her devotion to songwriting, recording, performing live and acting isn’t enough of an indication of her passion, it’s obvious when she speaks candidly about what moves her as an artist.
“I think what’s probably most exciting for me is when things are creative,” she explained. “Whether that’s figuring out a character and how that character feels at any given moment or writing a song and trying to think up reality or lyrics.” For those attending her performance at the Keswick, fans are in store for a performance that’s equally special for Mendler. “I recently started playing the ‘ge-tar’ at my shows,” she laughed. “Hopefully that doesn’t spoil the surprise when I come to visit you guys, but that’s something I’ve always dreamed of doing during my show. It’s a weird dream, but I finally have done it onstage. I don’t know if I’m making a complete fool out of myself or what, but it’s fun. I enjoy it and I feel like a rock star.”
Mendler will be showcasing her range when she demonstrates her softer side musically. “We also have a little acoustic segment in the show, which is really fun to sort of change up the vibe and make it feel a little more intimate.” With all of her rising accomplishments, Mendler continues to raise the bar for her goals higher and higher. As she confidently declares in the chorus of her Top 40 International single, “Ready or not, here I come.” “The ultimate accomplishment for my music career would be to write one really special love song that kind of lives on. There’s no way that a story hasn’t been told before, but to write one that really hits it, a story that sticks with people, would be really cool. And for acting — I mean, I’d love to win an Oscar.”
