Here's something that I don't quite understand. Lindsay Lohan was one of those Disney chicks that guys didn't develop a protective brother role for when she was underage, instead drooling and waiting anxiously for her 18th birthday. I blame her downfall on Fez, but it's time to get past that. Now that Disney is homogenizing their starlets a little bit more, the best scandal we can get from one of them is some camera phone or web cam snaps of her in her underthings. And everyone acts so chaste about their lust. But since this week's selection is technically 20 years old, feel free to do an all-holds-barred run-down on her.
Here's the thing... aside from the HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL crap that she's starred in and hearing about the fact that they've let her have her own CD, I don't know much about Vanessa Hudgens. I don't know if she can act, I don't know if she can sing. I can only base what I know about her on the tabloid stories written about her and the way she looks in pictures.
And the way she looks in pictures... well, she looks damn good. I like that she's not another stereotypical blonde and that she doesn't even have a stereotypical Latina look. She's of mixed blood, something more common amongst the world's population these days and because I can't put my finger on what exactly she looks like, it makes her all the more intriguing to look at.
Still, until she grows into a more adult stage of her life where she's taking on roles where she's more of a real character and less of a Disney caricature, I can't give her all that much credit. Perhaps she's the Annette Funicello of her generation, here and hot for the moment, forgotten the next day because no one is sure where to pigeonhole her. The only thing I can say with absolute certainty is that she can most definitely rock a bikini.
Hudgens, whether you're familiar with her work or not, is hot or not in your opinion?
