Ashley Tisdale @ MTV Movie Awards 2007
The first ones to speak to Just Jared on the
red fuchsia carpet at The 2007 MTV Movie Awards was the cast of High School Musical — Ashley Tisdale, Monique Coleman and Corbin Bleu. They were my first interviewees on the red carpet at an awards show… ever!
Here’s some background: Each press outlet is designated a certain space behind a barricade and a floor marker with your outlet’s name is taped onto the carpet in front of you. JustJared.com was sandwiched between UK’s national news agency Press Association and syndicated columnist Beck/Smith.
Ashley was the first one to recognize my floor marker, point to it, show it to co-stars Corbin and Monique and laugh about it.
When asked if she reads my blog, Ashley responded, “Of course I do! I definitely check out Just Jared!” (blush)
Who was Ashley excited to see at the Awards Show? “I’m just excited to see the MTV reality stars. I’m definitely a big fan of The Hills.” (Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt all stopped by to talk with Just Jared!)
We then touched upon Ashley meeting one of her fave singers, Jessica Simpson, which was documented on YouTube.
On Simpson‘s break-up with John Mayer, Monique said, “I heard they got back together though… but you know, he said, she said!”
“He said, she said!” Ashley giggled (it’s the name of the first single from her debut album Headstrong).
Corbin commented on just getting back from their High School Musical tour in Latin America: “We did the same show out here in the USA but we did it in [Argentina], Chile, Venezuela, Brazil and Mexico. In Sao Paolo, we had an audience of 70,000 people (their largest live audience yet).”
When asked how fans vary from country to country, Ashley chimed in saying, “[The fans in Latin America were] so excited. They don’t get much of that over there. It’s typical in Hollywood for us to be here. But they were just amazed we were actually there.”
Come on USA High School Musical fanatics, the fans in Latin America have gotten you beat!
Future plans for these stars? Ashley will be a shooting a new film this August, but refused to spill any of the details about it. Why? “I’m superstitious,” she laughed.
Corbin will be touring with Drake Bell and teen pop duo Aly & AJ this summer. Monique is searching for her next step after High School Musical 2.
The trio didn’t share much on the topic of High School Musical 2 spoilers but they did mention the opening scene to the film will be the upbeat jam, “What Time Is It?”
The music video for “What Time Is It?” debuts on Saturday June 9th in @ 7:55PM/6:55c on The Disney Channel.
