While I'm listening and taking notes, the guys have undertaken an impromptu game of parkour, jumping between suede couches, a trampoline, and a Tron pinball machine. They stop for Efron to take a phone call from a hysterical Vanessa Hudgens — his High School Musical costar and girlfriend — and eventually, we head upstairs to the kitchen for a snack of Sunny Delight and gumbo.
When they ask for my honest opinion about their new songs, I mutter something about them being "outside the box" and "memorable." Though my answer is clearly insincere, Wayne seems unfazed.
"This isn't the only thing I got going on right now," he says as the two young celebrities walk me out past a stuffed emu with a gold medallion hanging around its neck. "I just did songs with Mannheim Steamroller, Good Charlotte, and Bow Wow, something for the Mario Universe videogame, a track with a bunch of monks from France, something for the new Raffi album, and 16 bars in Spanish on Juan Luis Guerra's new one. Plus, I just finished designing a new spring line of clothes for H&M with Hillary Duff's sister, and I'm trying out for that show Iron Chef. I may even star in Mel Brooks' upcoming stage theatrical version of Spaceballs if I can get my gun charge dropped in New York state."
Does he ever get overwhelmed by the pace of his high-flying lifestyle?
"Hell, no," Wayne says emphatically. "This is how I live! I get up in the morning, get my dick sucked four times, drink a Molson's, and then hang out with Zac. What, do you want me to go to Hawaii for a vacation? You got a job, but this is my vacation right here."
Adds Efron, "Word!"
