Spring Breakers stars Selena Gomez, Rachel Korine and Ashley Benson broke out into song and sang Britney Spears’ ubiquitous hit “Hit Me Baby One More Time” during their SXSW film panel.
The trio (who was missing Vanessa Hudgens) wanted to prove that they weren’t lip syncing in the movie. Funny because they sound just fine to me live.
Among his zillion projects, James Franco had time to cover Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” with Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson. The over-sexualized, poorly filmed music video would probably be considered conceptual art by Franco’s entourage, but let’s not over-think it. It’s just pure hilarity and they’re having fun with it. Franco has since taken it down from his WhoSay account but DUH this is the Internet so someone immediately copied it for the personal collection then SHARED IT WITH THE WORLD. Thanks anonymous person.
And if you’re saying “OMG it’s soo raunchy” then please just go watch Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers and then come talk to me.

When most people go to a barbecue the host is all “oh, remember to bring a couple bags of chips — Dill Pickle please!” But when Scooter Braun goes everyone must be like “oh BTW, do you think you can bring that Psy fellow? You know the one with the song that’s ALWAYS IN MY HEAD?”
Braun tweeted a YouTube link today with a video of Psy dancing at a barbecue with synchronized swimmers. Meanwhile, Braun’s friends, including Ashley Benson’s boyfriend Ryan Good and choreographer Nick Demoura joined the party.
Braun signed the K-Pop star, whose hit “Gangnam Style,” is garnering pretty much a thousand covers day (but we’re probably lowballing it). We’re expecting this cover to go viral stat.

If you’re the major fashion fanatic we think you are, then you know this past week has been INSANE, what with New York Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out, the MTV Video Music Awards, the Toronto Film Festival and more. It’s fashion overload and we love it! If you want to check out some of the best looks from the MTV VMAs, take a look here. As for the rest, here we go!
Why we love it: This look proves florals aren’t just for spring and summer and can work into the fall season as well. The embroidered floral detail pop off this white mini is on trend with its hints of cobalt — a major colour for the fall season. The lace yoke (the part of the dress at the collarbone and shoulders) is also on trend for the fall, so expect to see lace yokes in a lot of upcoming looks.
Takeaway: Invest in cobalt pieces for your wardrobe. This hue has been popular for a while now but is making a huge splash in the fall runway season. If you’re not a fan of showing cleavage, then lace or sheer yokes are a good fashion technique to keep covered while not looking too demure.
Why we love it: The vibrant red-orange colour is a surefire way to stand out. Unlike her co-star Emma Watson’s dress at the TIFF premiere, this dress shows off Dobrev’s cleavage while still working in the embroidered lace detail in the sleeves. This dress manages to mix two trends, lace and cutouts, in a fun and stylish way.
Takeaway: If you’re not a fan of long-sleeve dresses (because let’s be honest sometimes long-sleeve dresses look older) using cutouts, lace, or other sheer fabrics keeps things youthful while getting to show some skin in a fun and strategic way.

Selena Gomez provided my favourite insight during the Q&A portion of TIFF’s Spring Breakers premiere. She said: “It’s really hard to find a teen movie that tells the truth and shows what’s raw and real.”
I can’t say I personally know anyone my age that funds their hedonist exploits by robbing and threatening to blow the f*cking heads off customers at fast food joints with booze-filled water guns. But director Harmony Korine is painting a broader portrait of a selfish, Jersey Shore-loving generation that becomes
young, wild and free completely disillusioned during their “break from reality.” And we sure as hell all know college kids like that.
Faith (Selena Gomez) is a Jesus-thumping undergrad who is disillusioned by the banality of her life. She eagerly follows her childhood friends, played by Hudgens, Pretty Little Liars’ Ashley Benson and Korines’ wife Rachel, on their illegally funded spring break vacation to Florida.
While Faith is encouraged by her “spiritual retreat” — even wishing to make her pause from reality infinite — her fun is over when the ladies land in jail and meet a cornrowed hustler named Alien (James Franco). Just as Faith’s spring break vacation ends, it just gets started for her thrill-seeking friends.
Three things I loved
The film isn’t for the faint of heart, nor is it necessarily for Gomez and Hudgens’ fans. The Disney stars smoke bongs and dance alongside breast-baring partiers during their violent and sexual retreat. Teen idol haters might be pleasantly surprised by all the actresses’ adaptability, particularly during some raunchy scenes with Benson, Hudgens and Franco, that couldn’t have been comfortable to shoot… for the girls anyway.

The Spring Breakers
Ashley Benson donned a beautiful couture dresses and hung out with BFFs and co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez at the Venice premiere of Spring Breakers. Her job is very difficult. It requires her to submit to the idea of fun, wave to adoring fans and wear a stunning designer outfit.
Officials were wondering why so many teen girls fainted precisely six minutes ago until they realized One Direction tweeted a photo of Harry Styles and Zayn Malik looking devilishly handsome rehearsing for tomorrow night’s VMAs. The county sheriff’s department is investigating.

In the past few months, there’s been countless candids floating around from the set of Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. You can’t help but realize that this movie isn’t going to be anything but a racier image to what some of these co-star’s have done in the past. Ashley Benson told JustJared: “It’s more edgy and it’s a little bit darker and I just play an insane character, but it was fun.” The movie won’t be released until early next year, but will be making a couple debuts at film festivals around the world.
The film follows four friends (Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine) as they head to Florida for spring break, but end up behind bars after robbing a restaurant. A couple drug dealers bail them out (why aren’t they in jail..) but the price the girls have to pay is doing some dirty work.
In the clip, Selena Gomez who seems to be in a jail cell says: “I’m so tired of seeing the same thing every single day. Everybody’s miserable here because everybody sees the same things. They wake up in the same bed, the same houses… same depressing streetlights. One gas station. The grass, it’s not even green it’s brown. Everything is the same and everyone’s just sad.”
Well that’s fun. In a new film directed by Harmony Korine, The Black Keys are dressed like giant babies in pastel onesies, holding bottles and giving the camera their trademark deadpan expressions. It’s all to the tune of their song “Gold On The Ceiling,” which already has a music video, but hey, who cares?
What else would we expect from Harmony Korine after all? The guy is directing the controversial new film Spring Breakers starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson.
The video is so bizarre it makes me like The Black Keys more than I already do, which trust me, is a lot. The track is from El Camino, which is out now.
Watch it here:
We’ve been getting glimpses of the upcoming movie Spring Breakers for months courtesy of Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson’s Twitter feed — even though it doesn’t come out until 2013. As if those shots didn’t get us excited enough they were photographed for Interview Magazine, doing all kinds of bad, like getting arrested and looking indifferent to James Franco pointing a gun at their heads.
Spring Breakers stars Gomez, Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and Rachel Korine as four college girls who land in jail after robbing a restaurant to pay for their spring break vacation. And don’t go thinking it’s going to be one of those cheesy teen flicks either. The film is directed by Harmony Korine, who wrote the script for your parent’s worst nightmare Kids.
Are you excited to see the film?
Just saying, if I was in high school and posted this photo on Instagram, I would get a lot of ”I’m so disappointed in you” comments from my parents. Of course, the ladies were in costume for their new movie Spring Breakers, or at least we hope.
A bikini-clad Selena Gomez (second from left) poses with Rachel Korine, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, who later posted the photo on Twitter. They’re a little risque but it’s no different than they’ll look in the upcoming film. The ladies have been posting photos non-stop from the set, which seems to be the best publicity never paid for.
There are a few amazing things about this photo. First of all, Selena Gomez (furthest left) is wearing an amazing red wig and her “Spring Breakers” co-star Ashley Benson has pink tipped hair. Next, Skrillex is holding a Capri Sun (word) which makes me remember all the cafeteria “trades” I made in elementary school. Capri Sun was a hot commodity…
The most obvious draw to the photo is the company. Okay, so the fact that Selena Gomez, Ellie Goulding, Skrillex and Ashley Benson are hanging out together isn’t earth shattering news, but it’s still an unlikely foursome.
They posed for the photo after Skrillex finished his DJ set at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Pop princess meets indie songbird meets dubstep ruler meets PLL star — what were they chatting about? [Source]
Ryan Good, the man behind many of Justin’s “Bieber-isms” has decided to leave his young apprentice for unknown reasons. The news broke out on Twitter when Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun tweeted “all u asking..ryan is going to pursue some of his dreams…we encourage him 2 go after his. he will always b a part of this family. always”. Shortly after, the news started trending worldwide as thousands came together to honour his swag-seniority with the hashtag “#weloverygood”. We’re guessing that he left the Bieber camp to do some pro-bono work in under-swagged nations. andPOP will be accepting donations on his behalf for a charity we’re tentatively calling “Suspenders without Boarders.” It’s sad news Good has decided to hang up his hi-tops, but like every good Jedi, Justin has outgrown his master and it’s time he takes responsibility for his own style.
