For weeks I’ve wanted to include Vanessa Hudgens in one of the Matchups of the Week, similar to Bar Rafaeli vs. Blake Lively. The problem was, who is similar to her? Sure, I could have done “Former Disney Channel stars who are now incredibly hot,” but who does that leave? I could have done Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera, but they haven’t been that attractive since the late 90′s. I could have done someone like Ashley Tisdale, but she’s mediocre-at-best. I considered Hilary Duff, but she’s not famous anymore. The best choice was Aly Michalka, who is definitely hot but just doesn’t have the same allure that Hudgens does. So thank Vanessa Hudgens for a new feature: NSD Approved. We’ll alternate these with matchups, but we promise we’ll only reserve them for girls of no parallel, for girls who we approve as true ambassadors and pioneers of National Skirt Day, for the type of girls who are the very reason we get so excited about National Skirt Day each year. NSD Approved girls are the top of the skirt wearing world: the Michael Jordans if you will. Hudgens is one of these. She started out innocent enough (albeit hot then too), starring in the hugely popular High School Musical movies with Zac Efron and the aforementioned Ashley Tisdale. But even in her teeny bopper days, you knew Hudgens had a wild side when nude pictures of her were released, causing the straight-edge Disney Channel huge embarassment and male teenagers everywhere happiness. After finishing the last of the HSM movies, Hudgens dumped Zac Efron and moved into the next phase of her life: partying, posing in increasingly sexual magazine spreads, and partying all over the world. Recently Hudgens was seen taking molly at the Coachella festival (her publicist said it was white chocolate. What a lazy response. Does she expect anyone to believe that? I know I always bring bagged white chocolate to music festivals with 100 degree heat for one), while more nude pictures were leaked. Hudgens is also multi-talented, winning rave reviews for her turn on Broadway in Rent, and has a bunch of movies lined up. Here’s hoping that she replaces ugly stars like Cameron Diaz or Katherine Heigl and gives us something to get excited about at the movies again. Full gallery after the jump. Continue reading
We have a bunch of new jams for our users to check out but I want to dedicate this post to a specific song. 50 Cent and Nicole Scherzinger collaborated to produce a new song that is sure to turn into a mainstream radio go-to that could possibly be the hit of the summer. Yes, this song is catchy and you may become sick of it over the next few weeks. The reason why we are dedicating this post to it is because of the music video. Nicole Scherzinger, the lead singer from the pussy cat dolls, is a sight that will keep your eyes glued for hours. She is Hawaiian, Fillipina, and Russian and has been ranked in Maxim’s hot 100 for the past few years. This music video is addicting, with or without the volume on. So in her honor, we have provided this slideshow before presenting the jams of the week…
We figured we would provide you with some new music to jam out to on your iPod while you prepare yourself for skirt day. Some new joints for this week…
- Kanye West ft. Drake and Lil Wayne – All of the Lights Remix
- Britney Spears – Seal it With a Kiss
- Lupe Fiasco – Break the Chain
- Wiz Khalifa – No Sleep
- Katy Perry – E.T.
You can always count on a Lil Wayne and Drake duo to make a great song an even more kick ass song. The ‘All of the Lights remix’ is dope and is sure to hit the clubs soon. Both Britney and Lupe have provided quite the list of hits with their new albums. I’m sure you’ve heard Britney’s first two singles, ‘Hold it Against Me’ and ‘Till the World Ends’, so here is another slammer with a dubstep kick. If you were into ‘Black and Yellow’ then you will be sure to be playing Wiz Khalifa’s ‘No Sleep’ from his latest mixtape. And of course, I’m sure you’ve heard the new Katy Perry track in the club: E.T.
