Vanessa Hudgens on 'High School Musical 3'

Vanessa Hudgens, star of Disney's "High School Musical," has a new CD called "Identified." She spoke to Ramin Setoodeh. (Article continued below...)

Are you really on the set of "High School Musical 3"?
I'm in San Francisco. Part of the movie is shot at Stanford. I get accepted.

Congratulations.
Thank you.

Are each of you at different schools?
That much I can't give away. But of course we don't all go to the same school.

Will there be "High School Musical: The College Years"?
Not for us. We're pretty much done, I think.

So what's next?
I'm going on tour. After that, I want to relax for a minute, be able to breathe, feel life, buy a house, kind of get situated.

How do you relax?
I go shopping. Retail therapy is always good.

But it's dangerous.
I know. It's really dangerous.

Sometimes I buy stuff, and after I feel good, I can return it.
Wow. That's hysterical. I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that. Sometimes it never gets around to being worn, huh? I think before I buy.

What do you think of the Jonas Brothers?
They're great. I was friends with them before they even started to blow up.

How did you know them?
How do I know them? Hmm. I forget. I used to see them around a lot. I was on tour for my last album in New Jersey, and they came to one of my shows.

Do you and Ashley Tisdale hang out?
Oh, my God, we hang out so much. When we're really bored, sometimes we'll make little music videos on her computer.

Would you release them?
Oh, no. It's just us messing around in our hotel rooms.

"HSM" director Kenny Ortega once told me you and Zac Efron started dating on the first "High School Musical," and I don't think I've ever heard that story.
And I'm going to keep it that way.

You're not going to tell me?
No. Only because I don't want to talk about it. It might hurt the relationship. That's something I have to myself.

So, is it hard to go on dates?
No. We do what we want.

Are the reports true that Zac doesn't like to shower?
That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Whoever came up with that is completely idiotic.

Because when I met him, he smelled perfectly fine.
He showers! He showers! ­Believe me, he does.

Every day?
Yes! Of course.
