She may have risen to fame singing and dancing for millions of young fans on the Disney Channel, but Vanessa Hudgens, like so many of the company's former child stars, has clearly moved on from her cookie-cutter past. The 25-year-old star was spotted jogging in Los Angeles' Runyon Canyon on Wednesday, Jan. 29 wearing a controversial tank top.
The white crop top featured the word "dank" — a slang term meaning "high quality" and often used in reference to weed — in big green letters. But more shocking than the word was the way in which it was spelled out.
The "D" was in the same font as the iconic Disney logo, and the "A" was in the shape of an upside-down marijuana leaf. The rest of the letters were also in the official Disney font.
This isn't the former High School Musical star's first scandalous offense. In September 2007, nude photos of the then-18-year-old leaked onto the Internet, causing a major problem for the Disney corporation, which was preparing to release High School Musical 3 the next year.
In a recent New York Magazine essay, Hudgens' fellow Disney star Joe Jonas, revealed some details of what happened directly following the nude photo leak.
Jonas, 24, said Disney executives came up with a plan to "keep her on lockdown. We'd hear execs talking about it, and they would tell us that they were so proud of us for not making the same mistakes, which made us feel like we couldn't ever mess up."
