What's in Ashley Tisdale's Shopping Bag?

02/16/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

What does a 21-year-old TV star with a brand new album shop for in New York City? Not what you’d think. PEOPLE tagged along with High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale on her CD release day, Feb. 6, as she perused the racks at Scoop NYC. After all, the girl’s a born shopper — she was discovered in a mall at age 3. But in a store full of party-perfect pieces, all she wants are sweats. What’s more, “I like ’em baggy,” she says. (Hey, even pop stars like to be comfy!) While Ashley tried on Free City hoodies and sweatpants at a breakneck pace, Ashley’s mom, Lisa Tisdale, pointed out that her daughter’s already got “hundreds of sweats.” “Mom, they’re Free City,” Ashley explains of the Ron Herman vintage line. “They’re my favorite!” The eventual haul: sweatpants in white, black and green; sweatshirts in yellow and white. Though Ashley wanted to do the rest of the day’s promotional appearances in her new loungy duds (really, who wouldn’t?) she stopped into Arden B and picked up a cute, versatile babydoll top instead.

To get Ashley’s purchases: call Scoop NYC at 212-633-6535 for Free City sweats, $115-148 each and call Arden B 1-800-753-7325 for her baby doll top, $78.

many of you probably haven’t heard of her because she is a Disney channel star. She co-starred on a show for kids and was in a Disney movie, high school movie. She now has an album out and is changing her look and style. she’s getting way more popular!

Okay, after reading the nice and naughty posts, I thought I’d put my opinion in.

I love Ashley Tisdale.

Granted, her singing isn’t mind blowing, but her music is some of the catchiest that I’ve ever heard. I truly believe that if she was allotted the chance to write her own album, it would be incredible. Prove of that is in her song, “Suddenly.” She co-wrote it, and it is THE most gorgeous and meaningful song I’ve ever heard. However, you must take into consideration that her core audience is about 16 and under. I seriously doubt her and her record label were aiming to impress 30-year old soccer moms. But, I’m willing to bet that those moms love her as well, seeing as how every single kid who watches Disney adores Ashley.
Even if you aren’t impressed with her voice, recognize that she has come an incredibly long way. Watch the episode of The Suite Life where Maddie and London enter a Battle of the Bands contest. I winced and cringed and writhed in my seat when I heard Ashley sing. Who knew that a year later, I would be one of her biggest fans? High School Musical did her, and all the other cast members, worlds of good. It is obvious, from comparison, that Ashley has worked on her vocal talents, and it truly paid off.

About her hair, yes, she has extensions. She used to have pretty, long, curly brown hair. But we all know that brunette Caucasian girls that are trying to make it big won’t succeed. Hilary Duff and Britney Spears were naturally brunettes. Vanessa Hudgens and Brenda Song pull it off because of their nationalities. Once Ashley becomes concrete in the world of Hollywood, she will, without a doubt, experiment with hair colors, similar to Cameron Diaz, Lindsay Lohan, and Scarlett Johansson. In any case, her hair was the key factor that got me intrigued by her. I love it!

And trust me, she WILL stay famous. She’s not a one-hit wonder. Anyone who plays a main character on a successful Disney show is guaranteed a booming career. But most importantly, with a world-renowned hit like High School Musical, Ashley, Zac, Vanessa, and Corbin are not fading from the limelight anytime soon. I would even like to see more of Lucas and Monique.

With the whole clothes thing, if you had the money to buy clothes like that, I would love for you to sit there and tell me that you wouldn’t. I know that if I had the liberty to nice, cute, brand name clothes, I sure would purchase many a new outfit. I would still buy cheap things if I liked them, but…she’s a celebrity. It’s uniform in the world of entertainment to buy expensive clothes. Quit bashing on the teen queens. Think about it. If there were no semi-talented, yet incredibly attractive young guys and gals out there, the kids of our world would have no interest in show business. I see very few 5 and 6 year olds interested in Aretha Franklin and The Beatles. The youth needs to have their own music, and since kids aren’t very judgmental, the key is to have their stars be attractive, not superbly talented.

…and she does have great style. =)

Bottomline, she is a great role model. She has talent. She’s attractive. She’s likeable. Nothing wrong there – at all.
