Thumbs up Vanessa Hudgens could learn from Britney Spears

Link

Vanessa Hudgens, co-star of Disney money machine "High School Musical," spent the weekend apologizing because a naked picture she says she took for a friend ended up on the Internet.

Gosh, imagine that. Still, Disney can't be too happy here, so I thought maybe she'd appreciate a note of support.

Dear Vanessa,

Okay, let me get this straight. You sent out a naked picture of yourself and thought it wouldn't show up anywhere else?

You're 19 years old and you never came across the phrase "Download Screen Saver"? You gotta get out more.

But then, I'm naive, too. Before I read about your picture, I thought the high school in "HSM" didn't exist.

Hundreds of shiny, happy students bouncing around and not one of them shows a sign of having a single sex-related thought?

In which alternate universe?

But if you didn't realize that anything with pixels eventually shows up on the Internet, then I'm wrong. There not only must be a high school where students major in wide-eyed innocence, you're the valedictorian.

Now some mean people on the Internet think this is a setup, that you deliberately triggered a flurry of publicity that wouldn't be serious enough for Disney to fire you, but would be naughty enough to give you a little credibility with people over 12.

I'm not buying it. I believe you thought this picture would be a treat for one lucky fellow.

I believe this because you are a teenage girl. I'm pretty sure a universal obsession among teenage girls is "How attractive am I?" So you take a picture like this because the idea some cute guy is turned on by your pixels is, well, reassuring.

Teenage boys, by the way, have similar neuroses. They just act out or sublimate them in different ways.

Anyhow, if your worst mistake as a teenager is a naked picture, you've aced the course. But where there are enough hormones to pose for one picture, there are more. Hormones are strong. Stronger than Disney.

Ask Britney Spears. She's a Disney grad, too, and not long ago she was America's wholesome role model for tweens. Now she's our national celebrity from hell.

I don't mean that because you posed for one picture, tomorrow you'll chop off your hair, check into rehab and only put half your clothes on.

But next time you're tempted to strike a pose, you might want to pop in a DVD of Sunday night's Video Music Awards and fast-forward to Britney. She's the puffy one who loses all interest halfway through her own song.

I'm just sayin'.

Re: Vanessa Hudgens could learn from Britney Spears

I disagree.
Disney has marketed Vanessa a different way than others when it comes to albums.

"Come Back To Me", which is basically a remake, is a mature song for a Disney audience.
The song talks about a girl making a mistake which cost her a relationship with a guy, but she still believes they have a shot at happiness if they try again.

There's glimpses of humanity and reality there, something that David Hinckley hinted can be missing from many Disney movie plots.
And because of it the song made it onto the top 25 of the Billboard Pop charts.

It had the ability to reach out to more people outside of the Disney core audience.

Hillary Duff and Hannah Montana never accomplished that while with Disney.
They sold many albums but they never were able to get a song into the top 25 of the Billboard Hot 100 or the Billboard Pop 100.

This actually works for Disney and for Vanessa.

She has the most ability out of that group in High School musical to be a star outside of Disney and the musical scene.

If some nudies work for Vanessa Williams, then why can't it work for Vanessa Hudgens.
Both show that you can be gorgeous, a little wholesome, and show a freaky side once in a while.

Shyt Vanessa Williams did the nudies which many were WAY more explicit than that almost innocent picture of Hudgens and Disney requested her specifically to sing the big song in Pocahontas.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

I agree. I wish the next time a star makes a mistake like this they would say, "I'm human like everyone else and sent this picture to someone I loved and thought I could trust. Obviously, that wasn't the case, but that happens in life. You get things wrong sometimes. I will continue to grow as a person and as an actress/actor/entertainer and the people who really love me won't judge me because of one pic."

But no, we got to go through it was a mistake and this and that.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams
