Vanessa Hudgens is back as the face of Bongo for a second go-round, and frankly, I’m a little shocked… that Bongo still exists. Vanessa will take what she can get, since her main claim to fame lately is being photographed on her way to/leaving yoga class. And dem abs, of course.
Apparently Vanessa chose to go “au natural” for these photos – as in, Photoshop-free, which I find hard to believe, but eh, maybe it’s the truth.
Here’s what she said in a press release:
“I love that the final ad images are unretouched. It’s so important for girls to remember that real beauty shines from within and I’m so proud that Bongo is choosing to send such a positive message with this campaign.”
Here’s a question for any of you who have teenagers/are teenagers yourselves: is Bongo even a thing – as in, is it a coveted brand everyone is after? In my day, the Delia’s catalogue was the shit, but who knows what the kids are into these days.
Here are a few other photos from the campaign:

Vanessa Hudgens, mega hippie, was asked to explain Selena Gomez is 5 words in a Mobio INsider chat with fans , and one of them was “gypsy”. Prepare for backlash, because the word gypsy has been viewed lately as non PC.
From Us Weekly:
A follower asked Hudgens, 25, for “5 words to describe Selena Gomez.” The High School Musical alum replied, “Beautiful, talented, go-getter, loyal, gypsy.”
The Spring Breakers costars have remained close since the 2012 film, and recently cuddled together at the Vanity Fair Oscars after party in early March.
Do you have a problem with Ms. Hudgens using the term “gypsy” to describe her friend? Why or why not?
How would YOU describe Selena Gomez in 5 words? Here are mine: boring, pretty, ill-advised, boring, boring.

Everyone’s favourite hippie flower child, Vanessa Hudgens, used to date her High School Musical co-star Zac Efron back in the day, so now that he’s been to rehab for some serious drug issues, she’s speaking up to insist that she‘s never done drugs because it’s not “smart”. Uh…
From Cosmo On Campus:
“I have never liked ‘partying’. I love dancing, but that’s as far as it goes. It’s tough because a lot of clubs are everything I loathe, especially in LA.
“They’re always very ego-filled and people get up to mischief. It’s just not a pure environment. I stay away from [drugs] because I know it’s smart to steer clear.”
Methinks thou doth protest too much, Vanessa. If you feel the need to keep talking about how many drugs you DON’T do, that probably means you’re actually doing a whole lot of them. I mean, am I going crazy? I also don’t believe that she doesn’t like partying, really. I mean… maybe she just goes to all the music festivals for the music or whatever, but we all know it’s where you go to get high as a kite and have orgies or whatever it is people do there.

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.
