Ashley Tisdale Interview: Guilty Pleasure, Aliens In The Attic And More!

High School Musical star Ashley Tidsdale is back on the big screen with her new CG action-adventure flick Aliens in the Attic! Between battling menacing martians, Ashley found time to hit the studio to record Guilty Pleasure—the hard-rocking follow up to her 2007 debut album, Headstrong. Ashley recently took some time out of her jam-packed schedule to talk about her new projects and connect with her Kidzworld fans. Check it out!


Aliens In The Attic

Aliens in the Attic is “kind of like the Goonies meets Home Alone,” Ashley says. “Those are two movies I really liked growing up.” Ashley plays Bethany Pearson, a girl so desperately in love with her boyfriend (played by Robert Hoffman) that she doesn’t realize he’s been hypnotized by aliens. Kidzworld asked Ashley if she’s ever been lovesick over a boy. “Yeah, I think so,” she says, “like when I was younger for sure. I think that in high school I definitely had that same reaction to guys.”


Bethany is the older sister in the Pearson family and she’s not too excited about the family vacation. “She’s kind of in her own world,” says Ashley. Filming Aliens in the Attic posed some new challenges for the rising star. “I got to do a lot of CGI work, which I’d never done before.” And what about stunt work? “No stunts,” Ashley says, “but I did get to beat up an alien with a tennis racquet!


You can check out Ashley’s tennis swing when Aliens in the Attic lands in theatres July 31st.


Guilty Pleasure

Ashley says her 2007 debut album Headstrong was “me getting to know myself as an artist and learning about the whole [recording] process,” whereas with her new release, Guilty Pleasure, “I knew exactly what I wanted.”


Guilty Pleasure “is a little more edgier and mature than the first one. It’s a reflection of where I am in my life right now. It’s a little more guitar-driven a little more pop rock, but it’s fun—it’s upbeat.” “I got inspired by Christina Aguilera, Madonna, Gwen Stefani—they all did their own thing and with each album they’re always changing, so you’re always interested”


Ashley co-wrote “What If” with American Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi and says it’s her most personal song. “It’s about when you’re in a relationship, how you’re always fighting to make it work,” she says. The song asks, “if I really needed you, would you be there for me?” Kidzworld wanted to know if “What If” was written for someone in particular. “It was,” Ashley says, but will she tell us who? “No,” she laughs—guess it’s up to the fans to figure that one out!


You can pick up your copy of Guilty Pleasure in stores on July 28th.
