High School Musical fans may get angry over the following comparison between celebrities, but it's hard to argue with, isn't it?

While Zac Efron is best known for looking cuter than a puppy sitting atop a kitten, the same may also need to be said about talk show host Ellen DeGeneres now.

Dazed Zac Efron

The two stars have a similar haircut and smooth face. We can imagine Vanessa Hudgens going home with Ellen by accident one night... and DeGeneres not minding at all.

Zac Efron earning the surfboard as top hottie at the Teen Choice Awards wasn't exactly a shock.

Anyone who saw the topless picture of this High School Musical star, contrasted with that of Kim Kardashian, can point to a few (handsome... wet... gorgeous) reasons why there was little competition for the award.

Maybe someday, though, Jared Murillo can give Zac a run for his adorable money.

Zac Efron accepts his Teen Choice Award. Vanessa Hudgens can't wait to get him alone after the show, we bet.

Get excited, High School Musical fans:

The Disney Channel is airing a special dance-along version of the sequel on Sept. 8. The hosts will include the modern day Brangelina, Zanessa (Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.)

Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron

Efron, Hudgens and company â€" Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, Olesya Rulin, KayCee Stroh, Chris Warren, Jr. and Ryne Sanborn â€" will do more than merely host the movie: they'll instruct viewers on how to imitate their dances during the opening and closing numbers.

It's the airing of a lifetime.

"Our viewers made dance moves from the first movie iconic, and we're pleased to once again provide them with an opportunity to learn the new dance moves from HSM2," Disney Channel Worldwide senior VP Scott Garner said in a statement.

We can only imagine how excited Jodie Sweetin, the former host of Pants Off/Dance Off, is about this news.

Kim Kardashian is known for large boobs and a big backside.

Zac Efron is known for boyish charm and a smooth singing voice.

But these two celebrities have something in common in the photos below: Each is wet and wearing a bathing suit.

Cooling off in the summer heat, Kim Kardashian looks moister than she does during a night with Reggie Bush.

Efron, meanwhile, is making every girl on the planet more jealous than ever of Vanessa Hudgens. Yes, ladies, she gets to see all this and more on a daily basis.

Kim Kardashian Bikini

Other stars hitting the the beach this month also have a connection to Kardashian: Nick Lachey supposedly had sex with her, while Brody Jenner is her step-brother.

Moreover, a nude Sienna Miller laid out on the beach and gave the world her best impression of Kim during the Ray J sex tape.

High School Musical without Zac Efron would be like Friday Night Lights without Kyle Chandler.

Therefore, after the record-setting peformance of High School Musical 2, the only question fans care about is:

Zac, Down Under

Will Zac Efron sign on for High School Musical 3?

Here's the celebrity gossip we have on the topic: in February, plans were set in motion for a Halloween-themed feature film the studio dubbed Haunted High School Musical. Of course, somewhere between then and now, this plan was scraped.

Today, Disney says it will instead focus on the senior year of key characters (such as the one played by Corbin Bleu) at East High to complete this film's triology. The original writer from the first two films, Peter Barsocchini, is writing the script. The original producers and director Kenny Ortega are also on board.

As far as Zac, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale are concerned, Disney released the following statement:

"There is no contractual obligation for any of the cast members to return. That said, we are in active negotiations with all the principle cast members and are feeling optimistic."

When Billy Bush asked Zac last week at the High School Musical 2 premiere about another installment, the golden boy replied: "A third movie would be a dream come true. Finishing High School Musical with a third movie, that would be in theaters, is just sort of a tribute to everything we kind of did here."

Bottom line: Don't worry, ladies. Efron will return. You haven't seen Daniel Radcliffe bail on Harry Potter, have you?

You've probably gotten enough of just staring at photos of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, right?

Okay, maybe not.

Zanessa 4 Eva!

Nevertheless, here's your chance to listen to these High School Musical stars actually sing. Below, the couple best known as "Zanessa" rehearses the tune, "Gotta Go My Own Way."

If only Zac could take his shirt off during it...

Forget Grey's Anatomy.

Who cares about Heroes?

17 Again Star

And does anyone even watch The Hills on MTV?

Barely, at least when compared with the monstrous ratings put up by Disney's High School Musical 2 on Friday. The movie attracted 17.24 million viewers.

This makes the premiere of this Zac Efron and company's film the single most-watched basic cable telecast in history.

Overall, these figures also mean High School Musical 2 was the most-watched program on TV since the season finale of FOX's hit drama House on May 29 drew 17.26 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. Kids seem to love singing in the hallways!

And get excited, young ones: High School Musical 3 is in the works, as is a movie feature that will play in theaters. You'll never stop seeing Ashley Tisdale at this rate.

Meanwhile, as far as the franchise's stars are concerned, Efron and Vanessa Hudgens were united on the blue carpet at the premiere, cuddling innocentmy enough for the throngs of under-12 fans.

"He's an amazing guy," Hudgens said of her gorgeous co-star.

The Hollywood Gossip takes you everywhere.

Here, enjoy a look at Heath Ledger as The Joker.

Go behind-the-scenes look at the recent Britney Spears photo spread for Allure magazine.

And now it's time to provide you with an exclusive visit to the set of a High School Musical 2 shoot.

Seen here, Zac Efron is looking, well, like Zac Efron. Smooth. Cute. Inviting. He makes us melt.

There's also a peek at his co-stars, Lucas Grabeel, Ashley Tisdale and Corbin Bleu, as they share a laugh during this TV Guide photo op. We wonder if Ashley is cracking up over her hopeful triumph in this morning's Photo Finish with Vanessa Hudgens.

It's not what you think. In fact, if you guessed "they're famous for no reason," obviously you haven't seen our boy Zac in High School Musical. Just saying.

Nicole Richie, Zac Efron are among several young stars recently spotted rocking crimson bracelets - much like the red Kabbalah string Madonna made famous a few years ago.

Conrad Pic

Is the trend making a comeback?

Richie (pictured here with the string on her limp, bony arm) and Lauren Conrad - also spotted wearing the string of late - each have been sporting a charm of a hand on them called a "hamsa," explains Rabbi Shmuley Boteach of TLC's Shalom in the Home.

"It's a kabbalistic symbol. Wearing it is meant to bring down God's mercy and kindness."

But a rep for Zac Efron (who's girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, also wears one), tells Us Weekly that his bracelet has no significance.

"It's not a kabbalah string," the rep said.

"There's no religious meaning [to the red string]."

Meanwhile, Lauren Conrad's rivals on The Hills, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, are probably rushing to try and patent string, as well as the color red, so they can cash in on this fad.
