After online gossip suggested Ashley Tisdale was getting a nose job, the ‘High School Musical’ star went to People magazine to tell her side of the story, confirming she had a rhinoplasty procedure on Friday in Los Angeles. “I didn’t do this because I believe in plastic surgery. I did this to help my health. I literally almost could not breathe out of the right side of my nose,” the 22-year-old said. Asked why she’s being so open about it, unlike pop peer Ashlee Simpson, Tisdale said it was because “I want my fans to know the truth. I’m not someone who is going to act like I had nothing done. I just want to be honest because my fans are everything to me.” Read more.

‘The Early Show’ host Hannah Storm chatted with Ashley Tisdale from ‘High School Musical 2’ about her burgeoning solo career and how it feels to not have to share the limelight. Tisdale then performed her new single ‘He Said She Said’.
“Through the process of making the album I definitely realized I was headstrong,” Tisdale said about the title of her new album ‘Headstrong’. On the personal tracks from the CD, she confessed, “There’s been a couple of break-ups. There’s been a couple of jealousy, high school, girls are jealous. I co-wrote three songs on the album that were definitely personal to me.”
Asked about being a 22-year-old that avoids the tabloids, she said, “I’m not perfect, I have to say. I’m just not someone who wants to be in the whole Hollywood tabloids. I’m not someone who wants to go clubbing. I don’t drink and I don’t smoke, so a lot of it has to do with that too.”
On big crowds coming to see her on a mall tour, Ashley confessed, “I just couldn’t believe it. I’m just not used to being by myself. I’m used to being in the group of six for ‘High School Musical’, so just seeing fans out to see me I’m like, ‘They’re here for me. That’s awesome.”
