It’s a departure from Disney, that’s for sure.
The former High School Musical starlet released the music video Friday for her Spring Breakers track “$$$ex” and I have no words. Let’s just say that if I tried to describe this video, you would think I was recounting a particularly vivid acid trip from a wild rave in the 90s. It’s something you have to see to believe. I understand growing up and wanting to separate yourself from the squeaky clean Disney image, but I think the multiple nude photo scandals and risqué role in the movie were enough for her.
Check out the video here:
Sadly, Coachella isn’t about the music anymore. The event has now become a place for optimal celebrity watching as fabulous people dressed in swimwear drink and listen to more fabulous people perform.
Since Coachella has become a fashion show for most media outlets,we decided we would jump on the bandwagon. While the likes of Darren Criss, Sophia Bush, and Lucy Hale looked casual and adorable at the music festival, some people opted for a more homeless hippie look than fun and casual swimwear/summer wear.
It’s such a shame when attractive people don’t dress well when they know their famous person status is bound to catch the public’s attention. People will find you, and WILL take a few pictures of you. Dress with caution, and please look twice in the mirror.
Still, if paparazzi are going to be at this event, take your two/three pictures then let the people enjoy the show please. Sorry Darren Criss. I’m with you on this one. This blows, but it’s the way it is.
Geez guys at least get my good side! And watch the concert!

HERE ARE THE FIVE WORST LOOKS AT COACHELLA SO FAR:
A thick-looking vest paired with lots of black for a music festival? I don’t follow.
I don’t really understand what Katy Perry is wearing. Why are there faces on her skirt?
With Spring Breakers in theatres, you can’t help to wonder – when did Selena Gomez grow up? It’s only been a year since the Disney star has appeared on Wizard of Waverly Place, but with her career continuing to skyrocket, it’s been a busy one. Then you look at her co-star Vanessa Hudgens who has completely transition herself from sweet Gabriella on High School Musical to her own person, taking on mature roles. Too bad some other Disney stars can’t say the same.
Here’s just a quick and handy chart to show you what life is like after Disney.
First former Disney stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, now the Disney princesses, it looks like everyone is getting wild during spring break.
College Humor took the liberty of spoofing the much talked about Spring Breakers movie with all our favourite Disney princesses. Not everything is all “Happy Ever After” for Jasmine, Ariel, Cinderella and Snow White as they rob stepmothers, get crunk with a cornrowed Genie and shoot some magical wands off into the air. The girls get so wild that Mickey Mouse would probably chose to shoot himself rather than watch.
“It means no worries for the rest of your days, y’all,” the Genie says.
WATCH THE FAKE TRAILER BELOW:
Welcome to the New Year everybody!! Here’s hoping 2013 will be just as fashionable as 2012! And here are the five celebs who will usher us into the new year of fashion and style!
What she’s wearing: T-Swift rocked ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest’ in Time Square wearing a flashy red sequined IRO jacket, black YSL leather pants, and Jimmy Choo boots.
Why we love it: After failing to take the top spot on our Best Dressed list for 2012 last week, Swift is coming out of the gate swinging this week in this glam rock look. The red sequined jacket reminds me of Michael Jackson’s iconic red leather jacket but with a flashy new twist. This is a different look for Swift who usually is very ethereal or retro-chic, and I love it! I usually joke around with my friends that Swift is a unicorn incarnate, but I eat my words with this outfit!
I couldn’t resist re-posting this.
Takeaway: Don’t have a New Year’s resolution? Why not try to be more adventurous with your fashions! The new year is the perfect time for a new look and to venture outside your box. While the sequin red jacket is perfect for the stage, it might be too much for the streets. But opting for a red leather jacket will create the same effect– remember leather is on trend!
Carly Rae Jepsen
What she’s wearing: Ms. Jepsen also preformed at ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest’ in N.Y.C. sporting a black velvet and sheer crop top and a red tulle Sachin + Babi maxi skirt with appliqués.
Why we love it: Another new look that we haven’t seen before from the pop-star. I love how she’s playing with proportions and volume. Also Jepsen tweeted she’s wearing long johns underneath her skirt which sort of makes me love this outfit even more despite the long johns not being visible.
Takeaway: We’re in the midst of winter so it’s important to keep warm despite our fashion choices. I don’t know about you but the amount of girls I saw in mini-skirts freezing while waiting forever in line outside a club on New Year’s Eve was really depressing. So be smart and always have a strategy to keep warm!

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.
Ashley Benson Read more…
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.
Direction (and see photos from the premiere below)
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:
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Sarah Hyland gets personal in the latest Seventeen magazine and Lady Gaga wears another meat dress.
HIT: Sara Hyland talks kidney transplant with Seventeen Magazine
Sarah Hyland, a.k.a. Mila Kunis Jr., plays Modern Family’s Haley Dunphy so well, you’d think they’re the same person — you’d never guess she suffers from kidney dysplasia. The young starlet has been suffering from the disease since she was nine-years old, and recently received a kidney from her own father. Hyland is the kind of person young girls should look up to because of her strong work ethic and sense of self.
MISS: Justin Bieber apparently had a thing for Vanessa Hudgens, says an unreliable source
According to the National Inquirer, the two met on the set of Spring Breakers when the Biebs was visiting current fling Selena Gomez, and then yadda yadda yadda. Let’s be honest here: trusting the National Inquirer as a reputable source of “news” is like trusting Bristol Palin to be the voice of reason when it comes to the sanctity of marriage. You’ve got to be certifiable crazy to be do either.
HIT: Someone FINALLY writes an accurate bio for Kim Kardashian’s IMDb page
Kimmy K.’s cultural relevance boils down to her ass, a sex tape, and now Kanye West. So, it warms my black heart to see IMDb writer Jon C. Hopwood’s brutally honest profile — or roast if you will — of the reality star. Here’s a sample: “… Kardashian is possessed of [sic] photogenic good looks but is short of any other discernible talents outside of the bedroom.” IMDb has taken it down since, but you can still read it in full 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?
I’d say my worst class photo is from grade two, when I made the regretful decision to chop off my hair in a short mushroom cut that wasn’t too different from Bam Bam in The Flintstones. Needless to say, it wasn’t a favourite look on the playground that year. Luckily, I can now look at that gap-toothed photo of myself and laugh.
It’s also why I love these awkward celebrity yearbook photos, which show how celebrities have evolved from their Wonder Years. Consider adorable Taylor Swift, above, who’s almost unrecognizable, save the eyes.
Surprisingly, most of them look relatively unchanged, despite some extra baby fat, different hair or braces. I’d say the least unchanged award goes to Snooki and the most changed award goes to Taylor or Vanessa Hudgens. What do you think?

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.
No! My eyes! Take it away please.
James Franco looks like Britney Spears’ reject Kevin Federline for his role in the upcoming movie Spring Breakers. He channeled sleaze and scum all at once while filming in St. Petersburg Florida, yesterday. The gold teeth, cheesy Hawaiian shirt and unnecessary bling inspired universal gagging.
Selena Gomez, who also stars in the movie with Vanessa Hudgens and
Federline Franco, tweeted the photo above with the caption: “This is where the trouble begins… ps Rachel is sexy” Franco on the other hand…
It’s March Break!! And suitably, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens just happen to be filming their upcoming movie Spring Breakers.
The movie follows four college girls who land in jail after robbing a fast food restaurant to fund their spring break vacation. They’re bailed out by a drug and arms dealer who naturally wants them to do some dirty work in exchange.
The ladies were seen in Florida today in their teeny bikinis riding around on Buddy scooters. What’s work for them is a dream day for
me everyone. The movie doesn’t have a release date yet but filming wraps up this month.
How are you spending March Break?
It seems that re-kindled romances are all the rage this season! This list includes the rumoured couple seen locking lips in the photo above.
According to TMZ, Wemi – a.k.a. Wilmer Valderama, and Demi Lovato - were spotted during a make-out session outside Chez Valderama on Tuesday, a day after the two attended a Halloween party together the night before. This wasn’t the first time the couple was spotted – it was reported back in the end of October that the two were also seen “stealing kisses” while at a party at “Family Guy” Seth MacFarlane’s house.
The couple dated back in 2010, and reportedly split due to difficulties brought on by the age gap – Valderama is 12 years Lovato’s senior. The age difference between the two is hardly one you can ignore, and the fact that the person Lovato dated before Valderama (the first time around) was a Jonas definitely of puts things into perspective.
The big question is if either of these rumours true, or could they just be drunken/random hook-ups? We’re hoping they’re true, but only time will tell!
The full photo album is available on TMZ!
They’re back! The Highschool Musical sweethearts were seen out together enjoying each others company. It’s pretty hard to not enjoy being with Zac Efron…
At first the two were just laughing and chatting just like the good ol’ times, but as the evening progressed so did they. At the Eden nightclub in Hollywood, both Zac and Vanessa were spotted dancing quite closely to each other, completely oblivious to anything or anyone else around them. At one point, they were even kissing for quite some time.
It seems like Zac and Vanessa will be back together in no time à la Troy & Gabriella. I can’t say it’s disappointing, but the pair could have taken their time dating around the Hollywood block before returning to their fateful relationship.
Whether it was a magical evening of love or a drunken hook-up, we can’t be sure but the latter seems like the obvious choice.
50 Cent is pimping out Vanessa Hudgens…..in a movie.
The 22-year-old actress recently chatted about her upcoming film, Frozen Ground. “It’s an amazing cast. 50 Cent is going to be my pimp,” she laughed.
Vanessa added, “I feel like it’s going to be a challenge that’s unlike anything I’ve done before. I’ll be playing off of a true story and the person who went through all of this will be by my side.”
Once a pimp, always a pimp.
Austin Butler was caught unsuccessfully trying to perform, what we here at andPOP call, “The Houdini.” In a not so sneaky attempt, Hudgens’ new piece tried to escape while she was probably pre-occupied dreaming about her newest line of acne cleanser. If there is any doubt why Austin spent the night, we’d like to be the first outlet to speculate he spent the night on Charlie’s old “St. Cloud”. Dude clearly just rolled out of Zack Effron’s side of the bed and tried to tiptoe past her endless supply of Neutrogena before getting sucked into going for breakfast. You can tell by the look on his face, Austin, desperately wants to get out of there before anyone realizes he’s wearing the same clothes from last night and smells like the “iT Perfume” Hudgens endorses. Unfortunately the paparazzi caught him sneaking out, but because it’s Vanessa Hudgens, this “Walk Of Shame” gets upgraded to a “power-walk of awesome.”
