Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens: Battle of the B’Days

By: Celebuzz / December 15, 2008

Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens both had birthdays this weekend—the country crooner turned 19 on Saturday, while the High School Musical sweetheart hit the big 2-0 on Sunday—and both rang in their big days with squeaky-clean, wholesome-as-milk activities.

Nessie celebrated her b’day with her 21-year-old beau and High School Musical co-star Zac Efron, who showed up at her house with a bouquet of flowers and a big gift under his arm. The two then drove off for dinner at Los Angeles restaurant Stanley’s.

What could Zac have bought his lady love? Apparently, that’s a private matter, and from the looks of their recent shopping excursions, perhaps it should stay that way.

Oh, and Hudgens also received a brand-new Audi convertible, though it’s not known who bestowed her with that particular gift.

Swift, meanwhile, kept things similarly low-key. People magazine reports that Tay-Tay gathered family, friends and bandmates at her Hendersonville, Tennessee, home on Saturday for an intimate shindig marked by bacon-wrapped scallops, a ping-pong tournament (won by the singer’s manager) and S’mores—those gooey campfire favorites—cooked over an outdoor fire pit.

Wow; someone call the National Enquirer! Scandal city!

No word on what Swift wished for as she blew out the candles on her two Cold Stone Creamery ice-cream cakes.

But she could be forgiven if it involved grievous bodily harm to a certain 10,000 BC actress.
