Selena Gomez might seem like an unlikely choice (at least in comparison to say, Vanessa Hudgens) for a movie like Spring Breakers, which is a girly version of some of the debauched bro-centric shit out pretty often, and that’s because she totally is. Still, she was keen to get rid of her squeaky clean Disney image and while she was nervous about parading around in a bikini on film, it was her mom who convinced her that the project was worthwhile. Go on, Mom!
From E! News:
“She loves this kind of vibe,” the former Disney darling told me at this week’s Hollywood premiere. “She’s super into Indie movies and Indie directors…I think it was more of her pushing me and being like you should go for it.”
And from US Weekly:
“I wasn’t scared. I definitely wanted to do this,” she told reporters of deciding to shed her wholesome Disney image. “I thought it would be a great opportunity for me, and Harmony [Korine, the director] explained the movie perfectly and that’s the reason why [I chose to do the film].”
“I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into but while we were there, it was incredible to create and to play and it was liberating,” she continued at the Saturday, March 16 press junket.
I don’t really know a single thing about Selena Gomez, but I still like her because she got enough sense to get rid of Justin Bieber and seems to think his recent breakdown is totally hilarious, which it is. Spring Breakers is probably a terrible movie, but I guess I’d watch it if, like, a torrent came out or something. .

In what has to be the most ridiculous story of the day – nay, the entire week – it seems that Justin Bieber was unfaithful to on-again/off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez… with Rihanna. Bahahaha! I’ll let you get it all out of your system before proceed. Go on, take your time, catch your breath. Okay?
Take it away, Life & Style:
Life & Style can exclusively reveal the reason Selena Gomez broke up with Justin Bieber after two years of dating: Selena found out that Justin had cheated on her in the early stages of their relationship — with Rihanna.
“It has devastated her,” a friend of Selena and Justin’s reveals in the new issue of Life & Style. “It really cut like a knife because it happened in February of 2011, when Selena and Justin had been dating for months and were falling in love. It’s caused Selena to question their entire relationship.”
After flirting at a basketball game in LA on Feb. 20, 2011, the friend tells Life & Style that he and Rihanna hooked up.
Though Justin and Selena, who have been dating since late 2010, have been off and on in recent months as work kept them apart, this devastating piece of information caused her to break things off for good, says the friend. Now, “Selena thinks maybe they’ve been hooking up all along,” their friend tells the mag.
Okay, I don’t even know where to start with this one. First of all, I know Rihanna is sexually liberated and gets her swerve on at all times (get yours, girl – no shame!), but Justin Bieber? In 2011, he would have been just about 17. His voice was barely mature, so I doubt much else was. He was just some wannabe Usher with mediocre singing and barely passable dancing – hardly her cup of tea, if I had to guess (regardless of how “awesome” Mike Tyson thinks he is). Second of all… just, no. I don’t even have a second of all, it’s just that stupid.
I will say, however, that I’m sure Justin has cheated on Selena with quite a few girls, most likely 13-year-old groupies who stalk him at his concerts. He’s just the worst – dunno what anyone sees in this little asshole.

Here’s a photo of the two friends at the Soho House in West Hollywood while celebrating a Coach-sponsored event, and they both look pretty hot (though, in my most humble of opinions, one is significantly hotter than the other).

It’s official: Justin Bieber definitely cheated on Selena Gomez, and that’s why they broke up, probably. Otherwise, why would Selena be ripping off one of Justin Timberlake‘s crappier songs? Why couldn’t she be singing ‘Sexy Back’ or something? Why’s it got to be ‘Cry Me a River’ unless, of course, she’s singing it in Justin (Bieber)’s eye, kind of like how Justin (Timberlake) did to Britney? Are we going to watch Justin Bieber melt down like Britney Spears did, now? Is Justin Bieber going to shave his head, attack people with umbrellas, drive around under the influence of meth, and cry in front of photographers while sitting on street corners and petting stray dogs? Is this what we have to look forward to with Justin Bieber? Because guys … if it is … I’m so f-cking in. Hand me some popcorn and a pen, ’cause I want to write all this shit down so I never forget it.

Girlfriend sat and did an interview with the magazine, where she talked about her BFF (Taylor Swift!), on love, and on being a “good” girl.
Here’s Selena on Taylor:
We both experienced the same things at the same time. But we’ve never once talked about our industry. She just became the person I’d go to for an issue with my family or boyfriend. It’s so hard to trust girls, so I’m lucky to have her.
… Oh my God, she goes to Taylor Swift for boyfriend advice? I can’t even, guys. I just can’t. Ask Michael J. Fox. He knows what he’s talking about.
Selena on her personal life:
I’m having fun. At the end of the day, love is such a normal thing, and everyone deals with it. Just because it’s a different lifestyle doesn’t change the meaning of what I’ve been raised on, which is fairy tales.
(There’s the Taylor Swift talking there—I’m just saying).
Selena on being photographed all the time:
I think the paparazzi are over me because I’m so boring. I get to Topanga Mall and they’re like, “Why is she back at the same place?”
On Spring Breakers:
It was my first audition in years. I definitely felt that with my first stepping-out role, I should choose something that I could understand a little more. I was really nervous, but Harmony took a chance with me. He said, “You live in this bubble, and I’m going to take you out of it, but you have to trust me.”
And on never actually having a Spring Break:
I don’t think I’ve even had a spring break. I had to have someone show me how to hold a cigarette. Harmony [Korine, director of Spring Breakers] was like, “It’s good that you don’t know. Maybe that’s a character trait!”
Oh yes. Not knowing how to hold a cigarette isn’t complete oblivious idiocy or anything, it’s a “character trait.” Sure.
Isn’t this little girl just so darling? Isn’t she, like, the perfect, dark-haired, pop-singing version Taylor Swift? Of course she is, guys. Of course.

Is it possible that Selena Gomez is going to be an actress? I know that she’s an “actress,” but an actress? A Real Actress? I mean, if I can completely block out the Tweener thing she had/has going on, and the fact that she deflowered Justin Bieber probably, I can see it. Maybe.
As for James Franco, he sure is versatile, isn’t he? I mean, ripping Kevin Federline off so eloquently? That’s what that was supposed to be, right?
And hey. It’s coming out right around Spring Break, and that’s so appropriate.
