Naked Barely Legal! Disney Stars?!?


How many embarrassed chicks have to be on the internet before girls stop letting people take naked pictures of them? I just don’t understand. Is it some sort of “well it can’t happen to me” mentality or what?

Recently Disney star Vanessa Hudgens had nude photos of herself “leaked” on the internet. Hudgens was the star of the most watch program of the summer, High School Musical 2, which was the follow up to the smash made-for-tv movie. Supposedly her and costar Zach Efron (who was also in the big screen musical Hairspray) have had a real off screen relationship, and it is speculated that the photos were taken for him. He has not commented about the situation.

Disney’s Reaction

Well, Disney is a company targeted towards this wholesome image that allows parents to feel secure when their children are watching their programs. So, one might think that they would have a negative reaction towards this kind of behavior, but money can make you overlook pretty much anything. They have made so much money from this movie and from merchandising that they “can’t afford” to let her go. Personally I find it sad. If you are going to represent something wholesome play they part. In my Disney hay day I did not see Lizzie McGuire naked on the internet. Their quote on the matter…

"Vanessa has apologized for what was obviously a lapse in judgment. We hope she's learned a valuable lesson,”

Comments from the Vixen Herself

Well of course the first course of action was to deny, deny, deny. Then when everyone knew it was her she decided to apologize. Comments include:

“I want to apologize to my fans, whose support and trust means the world to me. I am embarrassed over this situation and regret having ever taken these photos. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends.”

And my personal favorite from her representative…

"This was a photo, which was taken privately," said a statement from Hudgens' publicist. "It is a personal matter and it is unfortunate that this has become public."

The comment wasn’t “Well she shouldn’t have done it.” Which would be nice for all the little girls who look up to her to know, but it was more of a “Well it’s not bad to do it if no one shows the public.” The truth is that when you take a picture and give it to someone else you are handing them your dignity, your privacy, and your personal respect. Do you really want to give that to someone else? Especially a teenage boy? Come on girls. Be smart.

More Naughty Images?

So today it was released that there were more naughty images of the young actress supposedly with lesbian action. Well its like two girls touching tongues. The buzz was just pretty much a play on press for more crap to write about. There was no boob action, not even any hardcore making out. It was all just hype.

Jay gets the Stiff…

So since all this controversy over the nude photos the starlet has cancelled her appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. I find this very sad. Look, if you are going to screw up and apologize about it, especially when the majority of your fans are preteens at least go on national television and face it. Not to mention that if she did go to Leno whatever Vanessa says about the incidents will be replayed over and over and over the next day giving her major amounts of publicity. She wouldn’t even comment about the cancellation.

Was She Underage?

The latest controversy is regarding how old she was. Well the claim for this is that she took the photos for Drake Bell, her TV boyfriend. HA! So since he has already denied this, I’m going to go out on a limb and say its just press trying to hype stuff up again. Basically IF they were for a guy that she didn’t’ really date in real life. IF they were taken in the time period that they worked together on Drake Bell’s show Drake and Josh. And IF they can find ANY proof. Then she was only sixteen. So she probably wasn’t because who waits two years to release things this juicy.

New Career Opportunities?

No one can be sure how much this will impact her career. She is getting a lot more publicity. I mean I only knew her as the girl from that famous movie on the Disney Channel. I probably wouldn’t have recognized her if I saw her on the streets. But NOW I know her name, I have seen her boobs and hoo-hah, and I know that she was in a Disney movie. What a lovely combination. But as for new opportunities Vanessa was reportedly offered $500,000 from the creators of Girls Gone Wild to show her fun bags again. How does that saying go? When one door closes another one opens. Well have fun with that.

It is really interesting how some pictures just get "leaked" over the internet. Who even knows...maybe she thought her career was ending and wanted attention, or maybe her life long dream was to be on girls gone wild. If this is what you get from a Disney star, then what can we expect from anyone else...
