Ashley Tisdale spoke with CBS News about her new album ‘Guilty Pleasure’, which she says is a reflection on where she is in her life. The ‘High School Musical’ star said she never thought she’d do an album, growing up watching Britney Spears on ‘TRL’ and doing music videos in her room. “The fact that kids or teenagers or girls look up to me, for who I am, that’s awesome,” Tisdale said. “Because I’m not trying to be anybody else. The fact that they like me for me, that’s definitely sweet and very cool. But I wouldn’t consider myself a role model. I never actually looked up to celebrities, I always looked up to my sister or my mom, because I just feel celebrities – they’re not perfect.” Ashley also talked about her new movie ‘Aliens in the Attic’. Watch it below the cut. (more…)
Ashley Tisdale visited the ‘Today’ show in New York City on Tuesday (July 28). Tisdale talked about how it’s good to be branching off from ‘High School Musical’, doing CGI for the first time with her new movie ‘Aliens in the Attic’, and being excited for the release of her new album ‘Guilty Pleasure’. Tisdale then performed its first single, ‘It’s Alright, It’s OK’. Watch it via MSN.com below.
Ashley Tisdale visited ‘It’s On with Alexa Chung’ in New York City on Tuesday (July 28) as Alexa’s first repeat guest, talking about horseback riding, being fearful of monkeys, starring in the new Boys Like Girls music video, her new movie ‘Aliens In The Attic’, and her new album ‘Guilty Pleasure’.
On trying something new since her last appearance, Tisdale said, “I used to horseback ride, but I just did ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ in Missouri and I got back on the horse. It’s been a long time. I think I was ten when I was horseback riding. I was so nervous, and the horse was kind of spooked by all of the trailers and everything out there, so I was just like let’s go over (away).”
Asked about her starring role in the Boys Like Girls ‘Love Drunk’ video, she said, “I always liked Boys Like Girls, and I was on a radio show and I saw Martin on a picture on Kidd Kraddick, and I was like oh my god, I love Boys Like Girls and he gave Martin my number, and we started texting and he was like hey, do you want to be in the video? I was like yeah, for sure.”
On filming ‘Aliens in the Attic’, she said, “It was a lot of fun. It was different because there was a lot of CGI and I never had done anything like that, so it was cool. It was challenging. It was a big action comedy. We had Kevin Nealon and we couldn’t keep a straight face the entire time.”

Last week, Ashley Tisdale premiered her new movie ‘Aliens in the Attic’ at the Mall of America in Minneapolis. The 24-year-old also performed songs from her new album ‘Guilty Pleasure’. The first of four live videos from her set has been posted at Tisdale’s MySpace Video channel. Watch the first, ‘It’s Alright, It’s OK’ below.
Ashley Tisdale stopped by AOL Sessions to record intimate performances of ‘It’s Alright, It’s OK’, ‘Hair’, ‘Hot Mess’, ‘Masquerade’, ‘Tell Me Lies’, and ‘What If’, all off her new album ‘Guilty Pleasure’.
The ‘Aliens In The Attic’ star also answered questions about her sophomore release, meeting Michael Jackson and staying in touch with the rest of the ‘High School Musical’ cast.
“He was one of the most amazing people I have ever met,” Tisdale said about meeting the King of Pop. “I loved him growing up and watched all of his music videos. The minute that he came into the room it was just like insane. It’s weird but there was this glow around him. It’s like it would take your breath away. It wasj ust amazing to meet him. I thought it was the coolest day of my life. He was really nice, really nice guy. His kids were really great and it’s probably a moment I will always remember for the rest of my life.”
Asked how this album differs from her debut, Tisdale said, “Well the first album for me was just me learning about myself as an artist, and where I was. It was very new to me, it was an experience where I had never recorded an album before. So ‘Guilty Pleasure’ for me, I knew exactly where I wanted to go going into it. I just really wanted it to be a reflection of who I am and where I am in my life right now. It’s a little be edgier, a little bit more mature. I’m 23 turning 24. I think it’s a different side of me that people haven’t seen. Everyone really knows me as Sharpay from ‘High School Musical’, but it’s a different side of Ashley that you haven’t really seen before.”
Video of the performances and interview at AOL.com have since been removed.
Ashley Tisdale sent in a new video blog from a recent trip to New York City, where the singer/actress stopped by Seventeen, People.com, Teen.com, MTV, AOL, and more to talk about her new album ‘Guilty Pleasure’. Tisdale is seen discussing her preference for upbeat breakup songs, having only three ballads on it so it could be an album to listen to when going out, and how the CD was a “therapeutic album”.

Ashley Tisdale spoke with BOPtv at the Magic of Mentoring event in Beverly Hills, California, offering some advice for aspiring young stars. “Just believe in yourself,” the ‘Aliens in the Attic’ star said, “because that’s what I have always done. My mom has always told me to believe in myself, and just keep going. I’m here today, and I’m extremely seriously like the girl next door, and I just kept on going, so it’s gonna be hard work, so be prepared. It’s not gonna come easy, but if you really want it, you work hard for it.” Watch the comments below.

Just passed a Golden Corral. That’s where I ate with my pappy for the last time. Nothing better than all you can eat ham and a loving pappy.
