EL SEGUNDO, California - Vanessa Hudgens, who got her start starring in The High School Musical series, was recently seen having a pepperoni and peanut butter pizza at the Pompous Pizza Parlor in El Segundo.
She was sitting with a friend identified as Moxie Gummygarden. The two had just been shopping for sports jerseys. Vanessa had purchased a Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers jersey and Moxie had purchased a Blake Griffin Los Angeles Clippers jersey at Jersey's 'R' Us.
As the two left the pizza parlor, Hudgens was approached by Kiowa Kettle with Tittle Tattle Tonight. She was asked about the rumor that she had agreed to record an album with former American Idol judge and Aerosmith frontman Steven "Lips" Tyler.
Hudgens was taken aback and said that she had never heard Tyler referred to by the nickname Lips. Miss Kettle informed her that Tyler has had that nickname for at least 29 years or so.
She pointed out that she thinks that the first person who began calling him Lips was Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones.
Hudgens giggled and remarked, "Now there's a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black huh?"
She then told Miss Kettle that she and Steven plan to go into the West Coast Woodstock Recording Studio in Tarzana in three weeks to record an album.
When asked what the title will be. Vanessa replied that after tossing around about a dozen or so possible names she and Tyler decided on the title Steven Tyler and Vanessa Hudgens Sing The Song Hits of The Village People.
"The Village People...really?" Miss Kettle asked.
Vanessa replied yes and added that the Village People had lots of hits and in fact actually had more top 40 songs than the City Slickers, the Townfolk, and the Community Chumpz.
SIDENOTE: The word out of the Left Coast is that Steven has asked Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Celine Dion to sing backup on some of the songs.
