Vanessa Hudgens, the once-wholesome High School Musical star whose naked body has now been viewed by untold millions of (warning: link NSFW) depraved perverts on the internet, has just released a statement apologizing for posing for the racy photographs that have Walt Disney's cryogenically frozen head spinning in its freezer. From ABC News:

"I want to apologize to my fans, whose support and trust means the world to me," said Hudgens. "I am embarrassed over this situation and regret having ever taken these photos. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends."

We're sure her public will quickly forgive her for this youthful indiscretion, knowing that in this age of self-leaked, poorly art-directed sex tapes, they're lucky that their tweens weren't prematurely ended by stumbling upon grainy night-vision footage of their hero copulating with co-star/rumored boyfriend Zac Efron while innocently surfing High School Musical fan sites.
