    Ah!what a day.i got 3 thumbs up.thanks sweetheart

  • Wow

    @Nightwish: Omg what this little lunatic b!tch doing here? Is it yummy to suck my toe again? Maybe u can suck my butt after that lolololol

    I don’t see Vanessa as mocking the Indian culture. She is into spiritualism and that explains everything. You don’t have to have Indian blood to wear an Indian sari. I personally think that some are jealous of the fact that she does look beautiful in a sari and turn the whole thing into an insulting one’s culture issue, stupid!

  • http://deleted BO

    It’s a good thing that indians have no idea who she is,otherwise there’ll be an uproar that she insulted their recently passed away god shankar.but they’ll ignore this as they don’t knw she’s an actress.so hudge pudge has nothing to fear

  • http://Justjared.com BOHJI

    To me it is spiritually appropriate, live with it. No one has ownership. If it becomes a trend then, you should be proud. I would be. If the Sarong kebaya caught on with western world.

  • Wow

    @BO: Slut.

  • http://Justjared.com BOHJI

    Ravi Shankar’s daughter, Nora Jones is as western as they come by the way. Stop making a big fuss like as if Vanessa desecrated a temple. Ravi Shankar was a gifted musician period,

  • BO

    ah!she looks ghastly in the pics,u pathetic loser.her thick nose and fish lips highlighted.so weird looking.she better stick to western attire.she ain’t gonna go anywhr in bollywood with all those indian beauties

  • BO

    wow,bitch lol

  • 55

    she looks cute

  • .

    Really @tina? Where did she admired Ravi Shankar? Tell me the interview?

  • Nightwish

    @Wow: No, but maybe i can shove a broken bottle up your butt, as.shole.

  • Nightwish

    @BOHJI: It really comes down to Vanessa’s intent. She has pimped herself out as a hispanic to get roles, pimped herself up to look arabian in that recent magazine shoot, and now Pudgekin is attempting to move in on another culture. If this is somehow self-serving for her, meaning, she is trying to position herself to appeal to the bollywood community merely for acting work, then that will be quite disappointing and qualify more as a cultural prostitution of oneself rather than mere ‘cultural appropriation’. To be fair, maybe her intentions are innocent. Time will tell.

  • maria

    @Nightwish: That is truly asinine. She has not “pimped” herself to look like anything. She probably got those roles because of her looks. She didn’t change them to get a role. How stupid is that? These pics are a tribute to someone she admires, plain and simple. She is not wearing the attire and then posing in a disrespectful way. You idiots take offense to everything she does. God forbid she would have posted a picture of her a$$, like someone else we know. And that is not self serving??

  • Liberty

    1)I don’t think its disrespectful unless you are trying to make fun of a culture or using stereotypes that would be considered racist or not showing the culture in a good light.Vanessa Hudgens is doing none of the above, infact by wearing it she is showing her fans she is open and accepting of other cultures around her,and is open minded when it comes to belief systems.
    2)To the ignoramus who said it is an insult to their culture needs to lighten up, she meant no ill by doing this. By implying that you are saying that you must only stick to the dress deemed appropriate by your culture,which is infact insulting to every other culture out there.

  • xo

    @Nightwish: First of all, she is part spanish, and when she was younger her spanish genes were more dominant so of course she got cast as hispanic characters. Second, how the hell does being on the cover of Haper’s Bazaar Arabia mean she’s pimping herself out as an arabian? Did Nicole Kidman pimp herself out as an arabian when she was on the cover too? What a stupid thing to say.
    And no, she is not trying to appeal to bollywood. Again, there you go making things up.

  • tina

    “pimped herself out” what the he ll is that suppose to mean. ALL actors go out for roles you sad little man, because of her looks she was cast as hispanic. You’re just pathetic.

  • Nightwish

    @tina: What’s with the “little” assumptions with you guys! I’m a decent size, you know. lol

  • Nightwish

    I would rock Pudgies world, thats for sure. You too Tina. lol

  • Nightwish

    Wait, im not even giving myself enough credit here, i am flat out hng. rofl

  • tina

    @Nightwish: I, personally, am refering to your narrow mind.

  • Nightwish

    @tina: Oh. Oops. Merry christmas!

  • cookie

    do you know what’s worse than defending someone for cultural appropriation? tearing whoever sees something wrong in those pictures, saying it’s not racist. if people who belong to this culture just said this is, in fact, racist, you should just keep your mouth shut, and listen. otherwise you’re being as racist and ignorant as someone dressing with traditional clothes of a culture she’s not part of.

    ya rly she meant no harm to anyway, well uhm, thank god? no one here’s saying she’s being racist on purpose. in fact, many people aren’t even aware of what qualifies as racist or offensive torward a specific culture (now y’all tell me wearing a native american headdress for non native americans is perfectly fine, right?), and she’s a living proof of that.

    not to mention that the fact you people think she’s oh so cool wearing those traditional clothes, while you’d probably laugh at an indian woman wearing the same clothes, shows how blissfully unware you are about white privilege.

    so go ahead now, thums down my comment and keep ignoring this matter. it’s just so easy to ignore racism when you’re white. and keep in mind it’s a white woman speaking.

  • sam

    Why why why does she have to do that UGLY DUCK FACE. She’s a beautiful girl and that ugly duck face makes her look ugly.

  • tina

    @cookie: Are you saying you are Indian and are offended?

  • .

    Tina i asked you a question before woman. Where did Vanessa admire Ravi Shankar ? Or were you making it up ?

  • http://www.justjared.com telle

    GREAT¡¡¡ she’s the cutest … =)

  • maria

    @.: She posted on her FB, “Ravi Shankar, incense, and meditating.” She is not being disrespectful. She is saying she is listening to Shankar, has incense burning, and is meditating. She has long been a fan of ALL those things. No disrespect intended……in fact, it’s the opposite. It’s not something that is a part of most American’s lives, but she admires other cultures, and brings that into her own life. Geez. I think that’s a beautiful thing.

  • MUAH

    UGLY..

  • Allusions

    There are two people famous named Ravi Shankar.
    -sitar player, 92 years old, died recently, Nora Jones father
    - Shri Shri Ravi Shankar is head of the non-profit Art of Living foundation. Teaches ancient breathing technique and meditation. Stress relief program.

    Which one are you all speaking of? They are different people!

  • toria

    I’m sorry VH fans, but these are horrible pics. She looks like the joker in Batman.

  • lanas-world

    @The truth: I dont like her , but if she is ugly, then I am Quasimodo -.-”

  • A

    She looks so stupid.

  • Sheila

    It means a lot to you for her to post pictures of herself? Gosh, every young impressionable girl should have a wise older sis to help guide her through life so she doesn’t become a rabid fan of a celebrity. I wish I had one when I was little & obsessed with Britney. One day you’ll realize how silly it is. Live for yourself, see each day as yours – not what your fave celeb did, said, wore…not defending them endlessly when that energy would be better served improving yourself….no celebrity is what they appear to be and that’s fine, just keep it in mind… take everything with a grain of salt…don’t ever cling or become obsessed.

  • A

    “the 24-year-old actress has created an official account to connect with her fans via her photos.”

    Okay so you guys said that when Ashley did this it made her a famewh0re and that you were glad that Vanessa didn’t share her personal photos with the world. Now that she is, you’re praising her for it. Uhm, own up guys. Own up.

  • A

    “@maria God forbid she would have posted a picture of her a$$, like someone else we know. And that is not self serving??”

    She took pictures of her cl!t and t!ts dumb@ss. Oh my God. Leave Ashley’s mere bikini photo alone. In which her @ss looked fabulous by the way.

    What did i tell you guys? Of course there is an ulterior motive! This was from way back in feb, so i wasnt aware.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Nightwish

    Come on Pudgekin. There is no need to pander to another race just to further your own career. You don’t look Indian, not even northern Indian. You look filipina/haole. Maybe hispanic, but that’s a bit of a stretch if you ask me. There are many Indian actresses who deserve the roles you want to try out for.

  • maria

    @A: Honey, she didn’t post them on IG. So nice of you to take a look at private pics like that. At least the guy who stole them is in JAIL. Whatsherface posted them on purpose. No comparison. And no one ever said that just having an IG or any othe social media, makes you a famewh*re. It’s what you post, how often, posting what you do and where you go every day. That’s what’s offensive. And for the record, if Vanessa ever does that, I will say it’s true as well. But I will go out on a limb, and say she’ll never post a pic of her a$$ for her fans. If that’s what you call staying in touch with your fans, i will laugh my head off.

  • steLLe

    Well if we go by Maria’s logic above then Stella is clearly a FAMEWH0RE. She’s always posting pics of her boobs while making sexy faces.

    I don’t think Vanessa will be posting pics of her a$$ (maybe vag!na perhabs) cause we already have seen them so nothing exiting to see there. She should do porn now. The only think we haven’t seen is Pudge in some real action doing what she’s best at. PORN

  • K

    If she was actually mediating then she wouldn’t be instagramming.

  • M

    @steLLe:
    stop changing your name. And YOU ARE following Stella, so you are making her relevant. She never said “im Vanessa´s sister, so you should follow me”. If YOU ARE following Stella is because YOU ARE interested on her. She is just a normal teen posting normal pics, if she wasnt Vanessa´s little sister you wouldnt even been talking about her, because her pictures are totally normal.

    Vanessa, you gorgeous girl, i cant with your beauty!!!!

  • steLLe

    Ow really M? then Ashley posting pics of her a$$ is also fina na? is it only Stella who has the courtecy to post pics of her boobs? What is the difference between that?

    I am not following her btw. You can just go to her tag on tumblr and all the pics are there. I ain’t interensted in her. I was using the chick as a example to show Pudges fans that If Stella can post pics like that then Ashley can too. Does Stella get a excuse because she’s Pudges sister?

  • M

    @steLLe:
    so thats means you are actually intrested on Stella… you are searching for her tag on tumblr. And once again STELLA IS NOT FAMOUS, she is just a normal 16 years old (she is going to fight with her friends over twitter, she is going to talk about her boyfriend on twitter, she is going to post quotes about being sad or happy… SHE IS JUST 16, SHE CAN BE A LITTLE INMATURE, is not like she is 30 and posting songs or shading other people… SHE IS NOT FAMOUS), IF YOU ARE obssessed with her, and YOU ARE following her on twitter and instagram, and YOU ARE searching for her pics/tag on tumblr it actually means YOU ARE interested on her.

    SHE IS NOT FAMOUS RIGHT NOW!!! she is just a normal 16 years old.

  • steLLe

    You aren’t understanding my point here @M. What I am saying is how come is it O.K for Stella to post provocative pics and thats fine with the Vanessa fans. (she is her sister) when Ashley does the same thats wrong. You guys are obviously giving her a excuse because she’s Pudges sister. You can’t say anything bad about her sister. Then that would be like bad mouthing Vanessa. It doesn’t matter if she’s 30 or 16. Actually if you think about it its more wrong on Stella’s part. She’s a teenager. Ashley is a adult. Gina didn’t learn anything from pudges scandal. Gina need to keep a eye on Stell. But its way too late now. She’s already on her way to become the next airhead from the Pudgens family. Gina must be very proud.

  • steLLe

    @M you aren’t Stell herself aren’t ya? Sounds just like her.

  • M

    @steLLe:
    So you’re saying Stella is as “famous” as Ashley? Stella is 16 and SHE IS NOT FAMOUS, if she wasnt Vanessa´s little sister you would NEVER EVEN KNOW ABOUT HER, so you would NEVER EVEN KNOW ABOUT HER INSTAGRAM, so you would NEVER SEEN HER PICTURES. You know her because she is Vanessa´s sister, and YOU ARE MAKING HER RELEVANT. She has an instagram like any other 16 years old, because SHE IS NOT FAMOUS.

    So if she is not famous WHY DO YOU EVEN CARE ABOUT HER. She never asked YOU to search for her pictures. YOU KNOW HER BECAUSE SHE IS VANESSA´S LITTLE SISTER, WHy would you even talk about someone who isnt famous? We already know you are obssessed with Vanessa, but … are you obssesed with Stella too?

  • steLLe

    @M alright you must be a airhead as well. Do you live under a rock. Stella is famous for being Vanessa’s sister. There is lot of candids of her taking Stella with her to pimp her around. Gym pics and etc. Everyone who knows pudge also knows she has a sis. You are just reaching here. You aren’t a regular here either way. You just ignore my point as a whole and is trying to turn it to your own advantage. Again I ask How is it O.K for Stella to post pics of her cleavege when its wrong for Ashley to post pics of her stuff? You will again repeat the same “stella isn’t famous” as a excuse. But you know it goes both ways. If its O.K for Stel to do so then Pudge fans need to shut the hell up about Ashley posting pics. The pics Stella have posted are way more provocative that the Pics Ashley have posted. You must follow Stella as well na? So you must know this. Don’t use that “Stella isn’t famous” on me again. She is clearly famous for being pudges sister.

  • steLLe

    You can’t compare Stella to a normal teenager. She’s celeb’s sister. The Hudgens family clerly knows lot of eyes are on them. They are famous. Its dumb of you to compare her to a normal 16 year old when she isn’t

  • steLLe

    goodnight ya’ll be back in the morning.
