Vanessa Hudgens @ The Tyra Banks Show

Vanessa Hudgens @ The Tyra Banks Show

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens gave quite the interesting interview on Monday’s episode of The Tyra Banks Show.

Tyra threw Vanessa a faux prom because V never got the chance to attend her high school prom. Vanessa also burst into song a couple times throughout the show. Watch the video below! Here are some highlights:

So when you [and Zac Efron] are singing the songs “I LOVE YOU” and stuff, you guys were falling in love on set? I guess! [giggles] It’s fun to work with him. He’s really sweet and singing all of songs is always a blast.

Is Zac Efron a good kisser on-screen? (tight-lipped) Mmmmmm. (Tyra responds, “Oh, it’s that good? Mmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!!”)

What is your ethnic background? My mom’s Filipino, my dad’s Caucasian. But within that, I’m Chinese, Spanish, American-Indian and Irish.

Best part about being famous? THE FREE STUFF.

When you read about young stars like Britney and Lindsay and them getting in trouble, how does that affect you personally? I honestly just think it’s stupid. [laughs] It’s easy to stay out of those situations. You just have to be smart about your decisions.

    oh I wanna see the whole show:(

  • natalie

    LOL it’s ironic she’s talking about how other young stars need to make smart decisions. . . i’m not saying V is at the same level as those hollywood bad girls just for a couple of nude photos, but is she really in any position to judge?

  • http://www.justjared.com/ Just Jared

    Gudny, the video was just added!

  • Its Me

    yea i know wut you mean… Too bad this show was taped before the nude photots came out.. She hasnt done an interview since, even cancelling Leno. I wonder when she will have the first interview??

  • http://www.lastfm.es/group/Zanessa D’rAÚL

    Misss Hudgens THE BEST!!!

  • b

    its one thing to behave badly and everyone knows it. but to act like u dont ever make bad decisions or do something stupid i find it worse. so what if u mess up, life goes on.

    Talk about irony. Yeah Vanessa didn’t do anything near as bad as what Britney and Lindsey do, but still she’s in no postition to judge like that.

  • http://www.gabrielle-christian.com Gudny

    oh yeah i didnt see it..thanks:)

  • Jess

    How embarrassing to have said that last comment on national TV after what happened to her. I know her appearance on TYRA was taped before it happened, but it’s still reeeaaaly embarrassing.

  • allie

    this was recorded before the incident
    so shes not gunna talk about that… if nothign has happened yet, duh.

    love you vanesssa!

  • Vanessa

    LOVE HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Vanessa, ftw

  • jennifer

    ‘smart about your decisions?” well posing nude for pictures was very smart Vanessa!

  • Amy

    “It’s easy to stay out of those situations. You just have to be smart about your decisions.” Says the girl who had nude photos online last week.

  • Nathalia

    SHE SAID THAT ABOUT LINDSAY AND BRITNEY BEFORE THIS SHOW WAS RECORDED. SO STOP THE ‘IRONIC’ COMMENTS!

  • Forever young

    I don’t think people should say that she is judging people – she has always said this and this show was taped before this unfortunate situation. I still don’t think she is a bad person and people need to let her live her a life. Every one needs to remember when they did something they would like to take back and how they feel and then multiply that by 100 as our’s wasn’t broadcasted to the whole world

  • joe

    smart like her and not pose nude for a pic? what a hypocrite…lol

  • joe

    yeah like paris, lindsey and britney are all bad people…everybody (like Vanessa) is judging them so why is ok for us to them and not her?? everyone just needs to worry about themselves and less about trying to purposely pick apart a celebrity…

  • sarah

    pot calling the kettle black LOL its just too funny!!!! she sounds really sincere as well LOL!!!!

  • Troy

    It would have been better for Vanessa if she just would have answered those kinds of questions with “no comment. I like her and all but this isn’t the only time she said stuff along those line those lines. I think she probably (naively) thought the picture thing was behind her but still it’s better to not say anything then to stick you’re foot in you’re mouth. Ah, well I love her anyway and I don’t think she’ll be giving those kinds of answers in the future.

    awweeee

  • Michelle

    Well that sure is that pot calling the kettle black.

    Well, this may have been shot before the photos came out but that is beside the point, they STILL HAD BEEN MADE, meaning she had no right to make comments like that at all. She knew she had made nasty photos of herself and sent them to someone so she is really being hypocritical.

  • http://www.ilsvont.com ils vont…

    So she is an actress, a performer, some might even say an artist(i am sure she considers herself an artist) and her favorite thing about being famous is the free stuff. What a joke.

    http://www.ilsvont.com

  • Me

    I really can’t stand her.

  • HO

    HER BANNER SHOULD READ PORN QUEEN

  • Brin

    #21 Troy- My thoughts exactly. But, oh well… “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

  • Me

    The free stuff? How Selfish!

  • me

    Tyra is looking really nice. She’s really toned up and she’s thin without looking like a bobble head.

  • nancy

    OMG i love VANESSA!!! She’s sooo cute and funny!!
    Her and Tyra rock!

  • a

    oh, the irony. poor baby V haha.

  • http://deleted tia

    hahah since this was shot BEFORE the fotos came out, she sorta sounds like a hyporcrite!

  • Lauren

    haha, this was funny(:
    this was obviously before the whole picture thing happened..
    and it was very personal until it leaked out.
    so she’s not really like lindsey or britney..
    i support v 100% !!

  • akruti

    i luved it
    it was 2 cute
    i luv when tyra asked v and kissing zac
    funny

  • Troy

    When she made “the free stuff” comment she giggled. So it was just a joke.

  • kat

    v is soo pretty! Tyra was hilarious!

  • Daniel

    What Vanessa meant by it’s easy to stay out of those situations was “Not to do anything that sets a bad example in public” being a good person and a good Role model arn’t mutually exclusive or together. If Lindsay only went commando around her house, and only drank at private parties and made sure not to drive afterwards, She’d still be doing questionable things but wouldn’t be a bad example becuase she was making sure to hide them. We all sin and act stupid, but if you try not to let impressionable people think that sin and stupidity are okay your being a good role model.

  • Shannon

    LOVE VANESSA ITS SOOOOOOOOOOO SWEET!

  • jenny

    ok she a beautiful girl
    you cant deny that
    and as for the rude comments
    i wish this girl the best no one was supposed to see these photos and now thats there out o everyone has an opinion it was no ones business and its still no ones business
    the one who leaked them o hes a hero right
    no hes a B#####D
    who cares if she took them its none of your business
    she just a girl survivng and taking care of her family mind you she earned millions where do you think she spent it
    in an interview she said the bills have to be paid
    soo all you back off vanessa keep fighting youll be ok

  • jas

    OMG LOL Tyra is such a character Love it!

  • Daniel

    #35. relax! theres nothing wrong with appreciating Celebrity Swag. IF Vanessa said “they don’t ID you at clubs” that might be questionable, but saying she likes free stuff (probably shoes and things she could wear around hollywood and on the red carpet) is like saying your favorite part of your birthday is presents, or the best part about winning a raffle is the prize. So don’t worry that she likes getting free stuff. probably SO DO YOU!

  • Rachel

    “I honestly just think it’s stupid. [laughs] It’s easy to stay out of those situations. You just have to be smart about your decisions.”

    lol! I guess we’re just supposed to forget that she’s just been a part of a nudie photo scandal, right? What a dumbass… I can’t stand her.

  • Jennifer

    Vanessa I love you and the show was great. I want the best for you and zac. The both of you deserve it.

  • Becky

    Brazilian’s fans always support V no matter what she did!

    She’s made a mistake ‘n learned ‘n paid too

  • http://www.gabrielle-christian.com Gudny

  • gigi

    omg!

    vanessa

    she’s crazy/beautiful.

    kicks ass more than everrrrrrrr

  • smdwh2

    I’m sure that she did not imply that the Spears, Paris, Lohan or whoever are stupid for doing those types of things, I just think that she thinks that if people are watching your every move that one should be careful with their actions. Vanessa took those pictures before she as famous and I believe that it was around the time that she filmed Thunderbirds, I don’t think that she thought the pictures would ever re-surface. Besides like someone said before that if they knew what they were going to look like at 30 they would have taken pictures of themselves earlier and would post them now!
    What we need to focus on is that she is very talented!
    BIG DEAL SHE IS SEXUAL AREN’T WE ALL?
    I Love You Vanessa! Keep the faith!
