The talk around is that this may affect her in a bad way because of her Disney association, which provides a clean cut image (in some ways a fake one) that kids in America are expected to look up to and partially aspire to be. The catch, however, is this young lady has been shown in her private life as more than just the good girl image she portrays on a show. And it is great that we teach our children to dream...but, it's not like the photos of Ms. Hudgens are aiming towards sexual suggestion. But they are comaratively as pure as those of a model in the nude, who was simply standing for the camera. And I really see nothing wrong with that.
Now where the problem comes in, as it relates to the issue of Disney and her reputation, is that she may be excluded from High School Musical's (HSM) list of stars. A shame -- too -- being as she's one of the three main stars. So I definitely feel it can hurt -- not just her, but the show -- if the consequences are like some wish for, with her being seen as some sort of consequently shameful representative to what kids are supposed to be; outside of her character, that is. However, there are choices that can be made to where we can potentially grow from this (and no allusion to perverted desires on this -- hehe -- watch it, buddies). So on that note, I would love to just leave this whole thing alone, as HSM should not be used as an excuse for lack of communication between parent and child regarding realities outside of a television show. No, this is not to say that Vanessa didn't make a mistake, but proposing that her young career be destroyed because of this one thing is arguably excessive.
She is a young lady after all, and in reality she, like many others, does have a life outside of some show or other career project. She is a real person whose character on a show still accounts for some things that can be seen as positives, and there are simply too many barriers holding people back from positively moving forward in life already to hold this young lady down as a hellion because of something so unshamefully human as a picture she "may have even just taken herself"... with an automatic camera -- before someone stole it from her and posted it all over. And we have the option to make a positive out of this negative and either communicate to kids the difference between real life situations and what is seen on screen, or we may choose not to even mention the occurrence of this display she's involved in. After all, part of the hype surrounding this comes from the media (grownups) ranting on it constantly and keeping it in the faces of kids; otherwise, it is quite likely that, as with many other "not so fuzzy-hearted things," this would pass on and be a little issue -- as it in some ways needs to be -- just not worth troubling the innocence of our children by hunting to concentrate on. Thanks.
Fuck all that....she made a bone head move, she deserves what ever losses they(as in film studios, fans, media) dish out to her. I'm tired of people arguing that celebs for some reason should NOT be held up to a higher standard.
If your dumbass stars in a kids show for Disney....then you are a straight up moron for allowing a nude pic to be taken of you....no matter who took it.
Same thing happened to that chick in Growing Pains and old girl on the Cosby Show....if you star in what is supposed to be "wholesome" entertainment...can you really expect anything less than to be booted off in shame. Had this dunce been turning objects on Price is Right or on some HBO drama....nobody would care....but when you deal with "family" programming....you have to stay squeaky clean. She should have taken the Lohan route....stay clean until you get away from the family crap THEN go apeshit.
Look man...we live in a U.S. where Paris Hilton can give lathargic blow jobs on video and Spears can flash her weather beaten vage and they STILL are media dolls not stressing for jobs....
I really doubt this moron's career will tank over this.
Eat shit Rusty.
