Paritial “25 Things” list of Vanessa Hudgens.

  1. My biggest splurge was a purse from Louis Vuitton. Ashley Tisdale and I each got one in different colors when we were on tour in Mexico. We call it our friendship purse. I don’t want to say how much it cost. I don’t like revisiting that place.
  2. I’m an online shopaholic: ShopPlanetBlue.com, Shopbop.com, IntermixOnline.com. I love that you can see everything, rather than fishing through the racks. And the surprise of getting it in the mail is like a present to yourself.
  3. My secret to flat abs is pilates.
  4. I like sitting in the front row of cycling class. I feel like everybody behind me is looking forward, and that pushes me to do my best. I look at myself in the mirror and get this really ferocious, angry look on my face like I’m about to kill someone. It’s crazy.
  5. Sometimes I feel prettier without makeup. You take it off and you’re like, “Oh, there I am!”
  6. Red lips make me feel sexy. Put on red lipstick and it brings out the vixen in you.
  7. I like looking for funny video clips on YouTube. ‘Charlie bit my finger—again!‘ makes me die every time. And ‘sneezing panda‘ is the most hysterical thing ever.
  8. I love snakes. I think they’re sexy. Not in the wild, of course, but pet snakes.
  9. I’m a passionate person. If someone makes me mad, they’ll know it. It’s so much better confronting someone than pouting about it. I don’t hold grudges, but I definitely don’t settle until I know it’s done and over with.
