Vanessa Hudgens Is Hot Rod This Newgrease
Vanessa Hudgens is ready to show us all her edgier side as Betty Rizzo, decidedly the baddest girl on the '50s high school scene, in 'Grease: Live.' Which is a refreshing shift from her long-time run as the goody two shoes type in ' High School Musical ,' so bring it.
VHudge's character poster for the three-hour Fox special -- which will feature her as the smart-talking Pink Ladies leader alongside Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Keke Palmer, Carly Rae Jepsen and Boyz II Men -- has been revealed, and we can now safely say that she's got the Rizzo 'tude on lock here. Just look at that cut-you-with-all-the-words expression she's got going on here. Excellent.
Thanks to the shimmy-centric teaser the network shared in November, we also know that she's going to be busting out some serious moves like so:Fox/YouTube
But just in case there's any remaining doubt that Vanessa's going to give being bad a good go, she and Keke Palmer -- who plays Marty Maraschino, a similarly risque character (for the times) because she's hopelessly devoted to way older men -- hit the halls with M.I.A.'s 'Bad Girls' to give us a preview of their new gritty grind.
'Grease: Live' premieres on Sunday, January 31.
