Hudgens is featured in the magazine's most recent issue, which includes an interview in which she talks about her "Gimme Shelter" role, upcoming projects and day-to-day life. Fans are buzzing about the transformation her career has made and how she has cast aside her good-girl Disney persona for grittier roles. For Hudgens, it's all part of growing up. "I don't think it's 'good girl gone bad.' I think it's more 'girl growing into a woman and being passionate and taking choices.' I have so much work to do, and I think I will always feel that way," she told the magazine.

Girl growing into a woman, indeed.
