Vanessa Hudgens has always struck me as more magic mushrooms and LSD than cocaine, but what do I know? Apparently back in 2011, she was seen doing coke at Coachella – a rumour she’s just now addressing in 2013 in a new interview with Marie Claire:
More recently, she was spotted at Coachella indulging in a substance she insisted was white chocolate and not cocaine.
“I couldn’t do anything but laugh. It’s amazing how people like to create something out of absolutely nothing,” she says. “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.”
The lessons learned are implicit in her attitude toward protecting herself. “It’s one thing to have a chat with someone, it’s another to have them know your deepest, darkest secrets. Just because people enjoy watching you in films doesn’t mean they have to know everything about your entire life.”
Well… okay. My most pressing question is why Marie Claire is doing a feature on Vanessa Hudgens as if it’s 2008 and she’s actually relevant, but as for the coke thing being white chocolate, I don’t really buy that, either. How in the hell does melted chocolate look like a powder? I mean, I guess you can’t expect her to come out and admit that yeah, she was doing lines off a port-a-potty toilet with the drummer from Arcade Fire or whatever, but seriously, that’s the best she could come up with?
Who knows, maybe she was telling the truth. At the end of the day, who cares? She’s got yoga pants to wear and hippie events to attend.
