Ashley Tisdale: 'I Was In Love With Zac Hanson!'

Ashley Tisdale: 'I Was In Love With Zac Hanson!'

Ashley Tisdale stopped by the MySpace Celebrity offices a few weeks ago and dished on everything from her new album to her favorite fashion trends. Check out what the 23-year-old singer/actress had to say:

On her musical inspirations: “I love Madonna, and Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry. I have a long list of that. I’m inspired by a lot of people and I really look up to Madonna, Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera. They’re always changing with each album…a different look to their album. It keeps them more interesting. That’s what I was really inspired to do with this one.”

On who’s on her iPod: “The Fray, The Used, Katy Perry, My Chemical Romance, Pink, The Veronicas. I have a lot of people on my iPod.”

On her first album, Headstrong and new album, Guilty Pleasure: “The first album, I felt like I was learning a lot about myself as an artist. This one, I just came in doing exactly what I wanted, the sound that I wanted. It has a lot of breakup songs, which are my favorite. I’m really excited about that. I hope everyone likes it. There’s definitely one song which is a ballad that is the token song that I’m experiencing right now. It’s kind of half-and-half. I really want it to be something to rock out to and have fun…getting ready to go out or in the car. Hopefully I succeeded at that.”

On her favorite fashion trend of the moment: “Probably scarves. I’m wearing one right now. I do love scarves. I think they go with everything — sweats, skirts, jeans.”

On her first concert: “Hanson! I was like in love with Zac Hanson.”

On if she could choose between movies and music: “I can’t pick one, I can’t. I love them both. Music is for me to be who I am. Being in movies is being a different character. I love them both. But there is something about being with an audience. Performing live — there is just no…I can’t even describe the feeling, it’s amazing.”

On any misconceptions about her: “I’m really shy and I don’t know if people know that about me. I’m a really shy person. I think sometimes it comes off like I’m not nice or something, but I am really nice and if you see me at the mall, definitely come up to me.”

    Ashley’s new single “It’s Alright, It’s OK” will hit the radio waves on April 14th! And as an extra bonus, it will also be released to iTunes and other digital retailers the same day too!



    March 30, 2009 — Burbank, CA — Ashley Tisdale, the singer and actress known to millions as the star of the blockbuster High School Musical series, will release her second album for Warner Bros. Records, entitled Guilty Pleasure, June 16, 2009.

    With an edgy, guitar-driven pop-rock sound, Guilty Pleasure is a creative and mature leap forward for this appealing young singer and songwriter, who launched a career as a solo artist with her gold-certified Top 5 rhythmic-pop debut Headstrong in 2007. “Headstrong was a big learning experience, as it was my first album,” Tisdale says. “This time I went in knowing exactly what I wanted to do and the message I wanted to put out there, which is that I’m 23 and I’m not just the cute, bubbly blonde girl you know from Disney. I have a tougher side and I love rock music, which are things people probably don’t know about me. On each album you get to share with the world who you are as a person, and I wanted my fans to see another side to me. This album really reflects who I am at this point in my life.”

    Guilty Pleasure is indeed an authentic reflection of a girl growing up and speaking her mind on songs like the first single “It’s Alright, It’s OK” — a spunky break-up anthem about being single and in control of your life for the first time. “I love break-up songs,” Tisdale admits. “On this album, I put to rest a lot of baggage from a previous relationship by venting about the frustration. Everyone can relate to those moments. That song is about how you need to stand up for yourself and not let someone walk all over you; it’s a message I wanted to get across to other girls.”

    Working with a host of top-flight producers and songwriters, such as Kara DioGuardi (Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood), Toby Gad (Beyonce, Fergie), Billy Steinberg (Madonna), Emanuel Kiriakou (David Archuleta, Nick Lachey), and Swedish production team Twin (who co-wrote the Headstrong singles “Not Like That” and “Be Good To Me”), Tisdale co-wrote several tracks on Guilty Pleasure, including the feisty “Acting Out,” whose lyrics could serve as the album’s mission statement: “Let me out of this cage / I’m not gonna hold back / I’m gonna break these chains / I’m taking control now / Gonna give you something to talk about / It’s another side of me I’m acting out.” She also co-wrote the propulsive “Overrated,” about not changing your personality for a guy, and two ballads “What If” and “Me Without You.” Another album highlight is the slinky, confident “Masquerade,” perhaps the most sophisticated song Tisdale has recorded to date.

    “I’m growing up and this is music I would listen to,” Tisdale says. “On this record, I’m not catering to anyone other than to who I am as a person. I think all of these songs have a message and a story that anyone can relate to. I couldn’t sing them if I didn’t connect with them myself.”

    Guilty Pleasure’s first single, “It’s Alright, It’s OK” ships to Top 40 radio on April 14th — the same day it will be available for purchase via digital retailers.
