|Respect THE HUDGE|
It all started one Christmas in the late 2000's. My young cousin was running around with a crap load of new High School Musical 2 swag she had received from Santa. The dark haired girl in the cast caught my eye. I made nothing of it though. One year later, the High School Musical 3 media blitz had engulfed most of the Western World and I was now well aware of who Vanessa Hudgens was. And so it began.
Creepy? Chris Hansen-ish? Yeah I know. But then I found out that Hudge (as I affectionately refer to her) is actually only a few years younger than I am. Her insane mix, of Spanish, Irish, Chinese, Native American and Filipino ancestry has created an adorably ageless blend of perfection. Sure, she kind of resembles a chipmunk/elfish creature, but I argue that's a testament to her overpowering cuteness. There's something else about Hudge that drives me crazy though. She's petite, yet has a striking confidence about her. Hints of her intellect sprinkle through all those lame talk show interviews she does, her smile and enthused giggle seem genuine. She honestly seems like a rad girl.
And also, from the tragic (GLORIOUS!) hacking of her phone/email we've learned that Hudge is kind of a sexual super freak. Not that this should surprise anyone. There's a sure fire seductiveness about her camouflaged behind that Disney exterior that brought her fame & fortune. Take a look for yourselves...
So Vanessa, Hudge, darling. If you're reading this, except this humble tribute/blog post as my offering to you. I promise to watch Sucker Punch soon and if you'd have me, I'll be your date at next years Coachella (since you like that stuff so much) and buy you all the ice cream your heart desires.
