I am not such a fan of High School Musical; or any of its sequels. Rich-looking, clean cut white kids, dancing and singing their way through high school? I once had a dream like that that ended in machine gun fire.
So when news broke that one of the film’s precious stars took some nude photos, I had to laugh out loud (that’s “lol” to the AIM obsessed). Through the amazing wonder of Google, I found said image in a matter of seconds. I gave it a once over and to be honest, I don’t really understand what all the fuss is about. So some Disney Channel teen got naked in front of her boyfriend and took some pictures without thinking it’ll end up on the internet. That stuff happens all the time. At least it wasn’t a video of her taking one in the mouth while answering her cellphone. And is this the sort of girl that teen boys are crushing on? She really isn’t all that exciting to look at. In fact, the most amazing thing about this picture is not of the girl herself, but of a glorious red curtain in the background. Click the curtain to view its full glory…
Vanessa and the Red Curtain (9/2007)
Seeing the real picture brought a quote from Tony Scott’s The Last Boy Scout to mind. After Joe Hallenbeck (Bruce Willis) speaks with a detective, the detective says, “There’s a new invention out, it’s called the razor.” Hallenbeck is quick to reply, “Too risky. I might start thinking of you and slash my wrist.” I wonder if Vanessa knows of this invention.
