Who? Well, she apparently stars in Disney’s tedious High School Musical films as “Gabriella, the sweet, innocent science geek” and has recently had a nude photo shown on the internet.
What makes it such a ‘scandal’ is down to her status of the character she plays and the fact that it’s a Disney film aimed at a young audience, but what I don’t understand is, why bring so much attention to it and why have so many parents already seen the photo? How did they find the photo and I suppose a more important question is, why were they searching for it in the first place?
“She’s damaged,” Renee Rollins-Greenberg, a Los Angeles mother of two, told Reuters. “She’s got this teeny-bop audience, young pre-teens and younger, who are admiring her and thinking she’s this wonderful, pure innocent person. Eighteen is awfully young for this kind of display.”
“I’m devastated because I have an 8-year-old for which I now have to have an explanation,” said another Los Angeles-area mother, Rosie Konkel. “She’s always looked at this character as a very smart and proper young lady.”
Huh? 2 mothers that have seen the image? How, what, where and why were they looking/searching/whatever at the image? It’s not like something like this is plastered just anywhere, so for those people that have seen the image, they must have heard about it and searched for it or something. It’s doubtful you’re going to see it on TV on the evening news or in any respectable newspaper, so the fact is, if you’re going to search for it on the net, quit moaning and if you have any kind of decent filtering on the computer, kids aren’t going to see it.
I must admit though, it’s a nice pic!
