Vanessa Hudgens In Parade Magazine


‘In an interview with the July 26 edition of  Parade High School Musical’s Gabriella Montez says: “That’s why I’m extremely guarded. I really do try to watch everything I say. Because one little tiny slip, and it’s like the world is coming to an end.” She adds, “It is hard. I do always have a wall up. But I feel by doing it, I keep myself safe.”

Vanessa On Gossip Blogs: “I try not to read the blogs or what people say about me. Because that’s what brings everybody down — no matter what you do, you’re always going to have haters.”

Vanessa On Her Extraordinary Relationship With Mom Gina Guangco: “I am so close to my family. I talk to my mom almost every day,” says the self-professed Mama’s Girl. “I got her fired once. I was calling her at work way too much, because I missed her,” the 20-year-old brunette reveals. “Back then, I was so shy, I did not want to leave her side. I would call her at work nonstop, to the point where she got fired. It was horrible.”

On Overcoming Shyness: “When I was young, I would not talk to anybody if I didn’t know them. I’d hide behind my mom if she tried to introduce me to anyone.”

On Living On Her Own: “It’s weird living by myself. I thought I’d be the person who, every time I hear a little noise, would hide under my bed. But I’ve fallen in love with my home. When I’m in there, I feel safe. I don’t think I’ve gotten scared once — knock on wood — in my house by myself. Then again, I do sleep with the TV on so that I don’t hear all the little clinks and clanks at night!”

On The Paparazzi: “I keep my head down. Usually I’ll run around in hoodies, and I’ve got this massive head of hair, and I throw it all in my face so that nobody can see me. But if I want to do something, I’m going to do it, and if people recognize me, the fans, then great. They’re the reason why High School Musical is what it is, and they’re the reason why I’m here, so I’m thankful.”

On Breaking Into Acting: “[In middle school] I started to get into fashion, which tends to make you a little more popular. But when I was on the stage, I felt like I was hiding behind a person, and I adored it. My parents had Grease lying around, and I watched that and fell in love with it. It was interesting to see people moving stories along with songs–it was exciting and different. West Side Story was one of my favorites. [ High School Musical] was the best thing that could and possibly will ever happen to me. I got to make lifelong friends. I had the most incredible time of my life.”
