It has been over 20 years since we first heard The Rembrandts I’ll Be There For You and after two decades it still sounds the same way. That all changed yesterday when Vanessa Hudgens and Jimmy Fallon finally changed it up on his Tonight Show. Instead of singing it like the Pop version we have heard time and time again at the beginning of Friends, they made it more Folksy. The way they did it, will make us fall in love with the song all over again. Just like Jennifer Aniston wants us to with her, but that ain’t ever going to happen.
Elle of the Mills is such a big fan of Mean Girls and High School Musical that she wondered what would happen if their world’s combined. Therefore, she mashed up their worlds and gave us a trailer that makes us wish it was a reality and not just one person’s vision.
Maybe it will happen. One is getting reboot and the other is getting a stage musical, so why not?
Vanessa Hudgens was seen kissing a frog, so has she found her finally found the man of her dreams. Unless he turns into Austin Butler, I think she already found him a long time ago.
But then again in her world of High School Musical anything is possible.
Vanessa Hudgens‘ father passed away after a battling cancer for just a few months yesterday. The actress broke the news on Twitter this morning, “I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers.” Then she added, “Tonight, I do the show in his honor.” The show she is talking about is Grease: Live tonight at 7p on Fox.
I admire her courage for taking the stance, the show must go on. I don’t think I could do it.
But there is something about performing and the adrenaline taking over that makes even the impossible, possible.
So tonight I will have her in my thoughts and prayers as I watch her kill it as Rizzo.
Want to feel really old? High School Musical is turning 10 on Wednesday. That’s right, it has been a whole decade since we got to know East High’s most famous students. In honor of the milestone Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Monique Coleman, Corbin Bleu and Lucas Grabeel had a little reunion this weekend so that they could tape segments that will air during a special broadcast of the much loved musical on the Disney Channel at 8p. Zac Efron was not there, but don’t worry he recorded a personal message for you to see during the showing.
If I can stay up that late to watch it, I totally will. But 8p is past my bedtime. At least it will be after today because this news makes me feel older than dirt. Don’t you feel ancient?
BTW I am surprised that they didn’t do High School Musical 4: The 10 Year Reunion. Aren’t you?
