Busy, Busy Ashley Tisdale

Ashley Tisdale is a busy person these days. With a second album in the works, HSM3 and her Degree Girl deoderant pitches she's on an amazing public blitz. With HSM3 filming this month she'll be in high demand.

Speaking to TV Guide she reflected on her role in HSM3: "I don’t know much, because I haven’t read the script yet! But I have recorded the songs, so I do know a little bit about it. It is senior year, so there’s going to be graduation and prom, but I can’t spill much else."

"All the music is great. They’re much bigger productions this time — they’re huge — so it’s going to be really exciting."

"I think every single moment with High School Musical was nerve-racking and exciting as well. It was a whole snowball effect, starting with the ratings themselves, and then going into the Billboard charts and getting a Billboard Award for the No. 1 album of the year. Every single moment of High School Musical was an OMG moment. It’s been a crazy ride."

"I would love for Johnny Depp to be in it. He did say in an interview that his kids love High School Musical and he wouldn’t mind doing a cameo. We should really jump on that one." Ashley said to Extra.
