Guilty Pleasure

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: Ashley Tisdale; Status: In Season

Ashley Tisdale, the singer-actress best known for her role in Disney’s tween-bonanza franchise High School Musical knows from guilty pleasures; her high-camp diva Sharpay was one of the few bright, tart spots in an otherwise diabetically sweet series, and her ‘07 album, Headstrong, offered several delicious bubblegum bits. At 24, though, she’s still treading an overly familiar pop-rock trail already better blazed by 16-year-old Miley Cyrus, and Guilty Pleasure isn’t so much pleasurable as simply vapid. Independent-girl anthems like ”It’s Alright, It’s OK” and ”Delete You” are glossy enough, but it would be better still to see Tisdale finally graduate. C+
