Vanessa Hudgens is in no hurry to grow up.

Even though her run with High School Musical ends with the upcoming HSM3, the 19-year-old Hudgens still knows where her bread is buttered.

“Your fans are the ones who support your movies," the singer-actress says in the new issue of Teen Vogue about her screaming-teen fanbase. "Without them, your career is over. I'm turning 20 this year, so of course I'm going to have to grow up. But I'll do it when the time is right."

Take, for instance, Rock On, Hudgens' first non-HSM film project in the last few years. Sure, she may play an edgy, dark loner with no friends, but she's quick to point out, "The script itself is still really family-oriented."

The same goes for Identified, her recently released sophomore solo album. “It’s a little more sophisticated [than my first album]," Hudgens explains, "though not in a sense where it’s too old for my fans.”
