High School Musical Star Caught In The Nuddy

My girls are huge High School Musical fans... if you're not involved in the lives of Under 16 year olds, you probably don't know what High School Musical is... but suffice to say, it is THE thing for my girls at the moment, so much so that Sept 22 has been written down in our calendar for the girls to watch the sequal on Foxtel.  The girls will have some friends over and they've been excited for weeks.
 
Which, is as fads go, a pretty good fad as the show is a wholesome Disney movie and is really good for that demographic... so kudos to Disney for making it...
 
But which leads to the revelations this weekend of the young starlet being caught in a nude photo scandal.  (Link to story)  Most sites no longer have the photograph as the lawyers have been threatening lawsuits and they've all been taken down, but I saw the photo on Saturday morning.  Its a full frontal nude shot of her smiling at the camera... other than her celebrity status, its a bit ho-hum as far as scandals go.  Its not like she's drunk, spread eagled or entertaining anyone in an intimate manner...
 
But what gets me is that this girl has become news worthy because of it and now my girls' favourite movie(s) have been tarnished and I am sure the kids will talk about it and raise a whole lot of delicate questions / rumours.
 
Now seriously, why does every starlet get busted in a nude photo scandal?  Lindsay Lohan - ex Disney girl.  Brittney Spears - ex Disney girl.  And even the previous Disney starlet Hillary Duff is getting out and about shedding her pre-teen starlet image with a bit of a sleazy look now...
 
It seems so sad that the process of making girls famous means that they become caught out in some shocking sex / nudity issue... I don't know what can be done, but it sure does seem strange that nude pics of celebrities become so passe these days... it wont be long before the next girl goes straight from Disney to a porn career it seems...

I think everyone should have a nude photo posted on the internet so that it no longer becomes newsworthy.

Liking it must be a girl thing :-)
