Ashley Tisdale shared a selfie on Saturday, saying “RIP to my body before quarantine.” There was just one problem. As one response said, “literally everyone around the world” was having a hard time spotting the difference between this and any of Tisdale’s recent pics.
The singer/actress, 34, rose to fame after starring in the original “High School Musical” movies (from 2006-2008). Tisdale had a smooth transition from her Disney days into more mature roles, and she’s become quite the TikTok star during this coronavirus quarantine.
In fact, the outfit worn in Saturday’s photo might be the very one seen in her skin-bearing TikTok shimmies.
For her mirror shot, the “Hellcats” star opted for a short-sleeved, cutoff white tee and a pair of frayed denim shorts…which were conveniently left unbuttoned.
Tisdale’s previously noted caption (“RIP to my body before quarantine”) was clearly meant as a negative. But, most saw her outrageously shapely physique as nothing but a positive.
“You’re still killing it!!?,” a follower wrote.
“wish I looked like u,” another said below.
“Girl, you are always beautiful! No pressure ?,” a third encouraged.
“Chris is so lucky,” one said, referring to musician Chris French, Tisdale’s husband of six years.
It appears Tisdale was in a midweek funk ahead of her midriff showoff. On Wednesday, she shared “another super honest post.”
“I’ve been having waves of anxiety and depression while in this quarantine. This morning while I was reading I realized it’s the feeling of being stuck, stuck in this moment, stuck in this quarantine and the overwhelming [sic] state of the world.”
“I then realized we aren’t stuck, we are simply just here. Here in this moment. Not in the future, not in the past. Just here. And that made me feel a lot better, it changed my perspective which then calmed my anxiety.”
“So if you’re having the same feelings, know that we aren’t stuck, we aren’t in this moment forever we are simply just here and that’s ok. ❤️”
Tisdale is one of many celebrities sharing their personal experiences during Mental Health Awareness Month, which has been observed in the United States for over 70 years. Similar messages have emerged lately from fellow Disney alum Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, as well as Justin Bieber, Cara Delevingne, and Shailene Woodley – just to name a few.
After Tisdale and co-star Vanessa Hudgens teased a “High School Musical” reunion in March, the entire cast appeared in last month’s “The Disney Family Singalong.” Since then, Tisdale has slain TikTok with a slithery dance to the Britney Spears hit “I’m A Slave 4 U”. She’s also confirmed new music of her own is on the way.
A May 5th Instagram update at a lemon tree announced an aptly-titled song called “Lemons.” All Tisdale wrote in the caption was “??? #comingsoon,” but her next-day Twitter post slated a May 22nd release date.
The song comes just one year after Tisdale’s 2019 album “Symptoms,” her first since 2009’s “Guilty Pleasure.”
