Ashley Tisdale responded to a YouTube question from a fan asking if she’s changed since becoming famous.
“I’ve been getting all your video responses since the first, but I wanted to let you know I’m still the same ol’ Ashley and I’ll never change,” the ‘High School Musical’ star insisted. “I have the best fans in the world, and I hope all of you guys know that I’ll always be the same Ashley and I’ll always appreciate all of your support!”
In the video clip, she said, “Hopefully I will never change. I think you have a really good point that sometimes in this business people get to a certain point and when they get successful they do change. I’m a pretty grounded person. I’ve worked really hard to get to where I am, and hopefully that will always (be the case). My family is really supportive and great. Hopefully I’ll always stay the same and be the same Ashley.”
Watch her reiterate that sentiment below.
Ashley Tisdale got a big surprise when she was driven to a surprise meeting with one of her favorite artists, Jessica Simpson, who was filming ‘Blonde Ambition’ at the time.
“No way. No joke. I might pass out,” Ashley said. “I don’t know what to say. Oh my gosh, shut up! I feel like a Make A Wish child. People are looking at me really weird.”
After meeting Simpson, Ashley enthused, “Oh my god, she came over and hugged me and she was talking to me and it was the coolest thing ever in the entire world. I literally like was almost I just could not talk. Daisy was there. Daisy hung out with Blondie. Oh my god, they’re best friends. I’m so exited! She totally knows who I am because she was like someone that she knows was like, ‘She thinks you talk so highly of her in all her interviews.’ I’m like oh my god, she reads my stuff. It’s so cool. Oh my god it’s the coolest thing in the whole world I have to tell you.”

Ashley Tisdale tells Blender she’s a different kind of pop star, who resists alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs. “Personally, I don’t think that’s cool,” the 21-year-old said. “My mom really instilled confidence in me, so I’m not somebody who’d be under peer pressure.” As for the troubling pantiless trend, Tisdale remarked, “I don’t know why they do that. Maybe they didn’t do laundry. I’m definitely the kind of person to wear underwear all the time.” Asked if she’d agree to Madonna asking to recreate her VMA girl-on-girl kiss, the ‘High School Musical’ star said, “I’d like to open for her. But I don’t think, um … no. No. No. Definitely not.”
