Vanessa Hudgens Wants a Driver's License for Christmas

Vanessa Hudgens Wants a Driver's License for Christmas

The stars of the High School Musical franchise shared what’s on their wishlist this holiday season with USA Today. Here’s what they had to say:

On her wish list: “My driver’s license. I plan on taking my test really soon.”
A favorite holiday tradition: “Putting up the Christmas tree together as a family. I love doing themes. This year is going to be gold and crystal.”
Her hope for Gabriella in HSM3: “We’re all going to be seniors, so I hope she gets into a good college.”

On his wish list: “I’m constantly breaking things, and I go through skateboards pretty fast. So a new Sector 9 Longboard would be nice.”
A favorite holiday tradition: “I always help pick out a natural, chopped-down-in-the-woods tree, so our whole house starts to smell like Christmas.”
His hope for Troy in HSM3: “To win another basketball game – maybe even nationals.”

On her wish list: “Christian Louboutin heels.”
A favorite holiday tradition: “My great-grandma has passed the tradition of Christmas cookies on to my grandma and my mom. The recipe is top secret.”
Her hope for Sharpay in HSM3: “To win prom queen. She didn’t get the musical in the first one. She didn’t get the guy in the sequel. She needs to be prom queen!”

On his wish list: “A package of guitar picks. I’m always losing them.”
A favorite holiday tradition: “I’m always in a different country for Christmas, so I’m always adapting to traditions abroad.”
His hope for Ryan in HSM3: “That he takes a break from dance steps. Maybe join the basketball team and shoot the winning goal. That would be fabulous.”

Find out what the rest of the cast had to say at USA Today. The High School Musical 2: Extended Edition is out on DVD Tuesday, Dec. 11.

    Let Sharpay be prom queen, and Gabriella the valedictorian!

    Hmmmm… that would mean Troy would definietly be prom king hands down. So, more drama in HSM I suppose!

  • Jessica

    Vanessa, Vanessa, Vanessa..

    Also, I saw this pic and it made me laugh, does anyone know where it’s from and if there’s a reason why he looks like that?

    Oh wait, I found the rest, haha, ok, so it wasn’t that weird if you looked at all the pics of everyone in the cast.

    The brother part was sweet. I can only imagine.

  • pebbles

  • http://- jack

    pretty girl!

  • zvkg

    lol. go go go Vanessa. Goodluck with that. Hopefully, all those paps that follows you, will give you space to actually learn driving. gahhh…I hope they find a place where paps won’t bother w/ her learning. That could be a sticky, and scary situation if they do. x_x In a good note, I’m sure Zac will come and teach you. lol. He’ll probably lend you his old car for learning. heheehe…

  • ellie

    Ok, here’s another limerick! Oh and JJ, I just wanted to say thankyou for using this article as today’s V post and not any paparazzi pictures!

    Decorate it to a tee
    And hopefully get a kiss under the mistletoe from V!

    Are all comments being moderated now?

  • ellie

    Oh geez! ZA’s the haters are out early today! We already seem to have imposters and those persistant people who just don’t know when to quit *sigh*

    Well, to keep things on a positive note, I’ll just keep posting limericks, how does that sound?

    She lost out when Gabi came on the scene
    And couldn’t win Troy because she was mean
    But Sharpay’s gotta plan
    To win back some fans
    She’s going to be the East High prom queen!



  • Nessa

    Haha, I think Ashley’s right =)
    Sharpay deserves prom queen…
    Oh goodnessss
    the drivers test around here is pretty easy…
    so hopefully V will get her lisence soon!
    LOL I’ll buy you a new longboard Zac Efron =)
    I need one myself…=)
    Thanks JJ!
