“Being cool is being your own self, not doing something that someone else is telling you to do.”

“So many people try to grow up too fast, and it’s not fun! You should stay a kid as long as possible!” “I am human like everyone else. I am aware that there are people who look up to me. When mistakes are made, they aren’t intentional, and I constantly push myself to be a better person.” “I just love expanding my horizons and growing as an artist. The only way you get to do that is by doing something that scares you or takes you out of your comfort zone.” “You have to be able to love yourself because that’s when things fall into place.” “If people don’t like me for whatever I do, for being me, then that’s too bad. I don’t want to change to be something that I’m not for other people to like me.”You have a choice whether you want to be happy or not. I choose to be happy.” HAPPY 26TH BIRTHDAY VANESSA HUDGENS!

She first heard about “Gigi,” she admits, during a low point. Hudgens was at Coachella, one of her favorite festivals. She and her friends could barely move around. Everybody wanted a picture. Everybody wanted an autograph. She had been hoping to relax and listen to Arcade Fire.
