Webisode 2 of Corbin Bleu’s ‘Being’ series for Pepsi Smash features the ‘High School Musical’ star in the studio talking about the work involved in the recording process and admitting he doesn’t like his voice. “Singing definitely is different for me,” Bleu said. “I picked up acting and dance when I was two years old. Those are my first loves. Then I started taking choir when I was in elementary school, so that’s when music started coming into my life. For me, I don’t personally enjoy my voice actually. It’s one of those things. I don’t really fully enjoy listening to the sound of my voice.”

Tommy2.net has interviews with Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel, and Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman of ‘High School Musical 3: Senior Year’, who all talk about the just released Disney film. Asked if she was going to miss the ‘HSM’ crew after doing three films, Hudgens responded, “I’m gonna miss everyone. I’m gonna miss being able to do this with everyone. Not every movie you do you get to experience the experience we’ve had, and you don’t build the relationships that we’ve built. The fact that we’ve got to do this together for three years, and we’re not sick of each other, and we still love each other so much is amazing. We’re just so close, and I’m really gonna miss them, because that really happens on a blue moon. It’s very rare.”
