Vanessa Hudgens: Breaking Free from Disney She Pivots

    • Society & Culture

In 2006, High School Musical became an instant classic, full of songs that are nearly impossible to get out of your head, even 17 years later. The movie proved to be a breakout role for then-teen Vanessa Hudgens, who dreamed of making it big on the silver screen. But Vanessa soon found that she had to distance herself from the “good girl” image of Disney in order to avoid being trapped in a single genre. On this episode of She Pivots, Vanessa recounts her first foray into Broadway, the impact of media scrutiny over her body, and the inspiration behind the Caliwater brand.
