Zac Efron's Apology to Paris Jackson Has Everything to Do With 'High School Musical'

Paris Jackson spoke from the heart of every High School Musical fan out there when she talked about her 10-year-old self’s disappointment in Zac Efron.

Paris stopped by The Tonight Show last week, and she revealed a heartbreak she has been nursing for some time: “The first [concert] that I actively really wanted to see was ‘High School Musical Live,’” she told Jimmy Fallon, but when she went to the performance Zac Efron wasn’t there.

“I was so bummed,” Paris remembered.

Zac feels so bad about the incident that he apologized to Paris on E! News, saying: “I’ll make sure I’m on set next time if you come to visit.”

He even offered her an invitation to the Baywatch premiere!

Yes, please!

Vanessa Hudgens & Zac Efron No Longer Speak to Each Other

Let’s face it, Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron are original couples goals.

So when Vanessa just confessed that the two don’t speak to each other any more, it stung a little.

Not that we expected the couple — who met on the set of High School Musical in 2005 and dated for four years — to stay besties forever.

But we did hold out hope there might still be a little nostalgia between the two.

Nope!

Speaking with Access Hollywood Live, the 28-year-old Powerless star admitted that she has “completely lost contact” with Zac.

Which is probably for the best, since V has been happily dating Austin Butler for the past six years.
