We hate Gabriella Montez. And, believe us, we’re all in this together.
Vanessa Hudgens has star in Sucker Punch, Spring Breakers, Machete Kills and Grease: Live. But it all started with the worst movie ever produced by the Disney Channel.
Aside from the alarming lack of creativity from its title (really, you couldn’t come up with something better to name the darn thing?), High School Musical’s plot is a quasi-reimagining of Romeo and Juliet that would make William Shakespeare want to crawl back to his grave.
But perhaps the movie wouldn’t stink so bad (after all, it stars the internet’s ultimate boyfriend Zac Efron), if it wasn’t for know-it-all, goody two shoes Gabriella Montez. Sure—she may be extraordinarily beautiful and academically-gifted, but she was also underqualified to just be an overnight stage sensation. And that’s only the beginning.
In honor of Vanessa Hudgens’ birthday, here are 12 reasons why we hate Gabriella Montez, her whinny brat character in High School Musical. Get’cha head int the game and hop into the “I hate Gabriella” bandwagon.
