James Franco: Justin Bieber 'Boyfriend' Parody with Ashley Benson!

James Franco: Justin Bieber 'Boyfriend' Parody with Ashley Benson!

James Franco does his best Justin Bieber impression in this new parody video posted to his WhoSay account.

The 34-year-old actor stars alongside his wig-wearing rumored girlfriend Ashley Benson in the clip, which features James lipsyncing to the hit song “Boyfriend”.

Back in October, James denied that he was dating both of his Spring Breakers co-stars, Ashley and Selena Gomez, saying “those are [Justin] Bieber‘s girls and I wouldn’t dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!” Looks like he doesn’t mind impersonating him!

    Not long ago I saw a bi stating that vanessa is seeing someone very very lowkey in order to maintain the image with Austin. She is extremely smart with what info can get out so its either someone in the industry that shes known for a long time, or someone who has nothing to gain from media attention, and could easily be rich so wants to remain private too…if its true of course

    She still keeps this friend Andrew close by.

  • Kitkat

    Did you see my comment about vanessas BI?
    Drew is the inner circle for sure

  • Kitkat

    Referring to the comment I made about zac in the other thread (possibly being abused at a young age) I also thought of vanessa. She hasnt been to rehab or anything, but she did have a string of nude photos. And looking at blind items regarding Weinstein its a high chance they weren’t for boyfriends but part of the casting couch for directors or the execs. She was young and would be much easily coerced by an adult for her career than a teen boy. Its also telling that her dad fired her first agent and warned other parents of his perv ways. Gets you thinking…

  • rainbow2

    No, I didn’t see it till now! I don’t know what happened?

    Interesting what you say about Vanessa. What is a BI? I believe you what you say about Vanessa seeing someone else. She is keeping Austin around for a reason. Because she does the minimal PR for him lately.

  • Kitkat

    BI is blind item
    I think they are at the point in the relationship where they don’t need to display too much for people to know they are still together. And the pr is non existent now but I feel like this is because she has got a new team helping her. I’ve done a bit of work in pr and its clear that since hosting the bbmas she’s had to put better focus on her ig. I mean she can get over a million likes for a good pic of just her face purely because there is better direction in the work. She could always achieve that but was never putting work into it.

    I dunno where Austin’s career is going because shannara is not gonna get picked up after this season and if it does it well be another network not MTV (maybe CW? Or one of those types)

    If vanessa manages to pick up another good gig her team is going to want a partner to be on her level (not higher or lower) in terms of fame and networking.

  • rainbow2

    It does make sense. Right now, is the question would they step up to say something against Harvey. I bet her dad saw something and didn’t like it. Why changed agent? and warned other parents. I feel she was compromise. Vanessa was smart. She told her dad. I bet Zac’s parents did too. They were more concerns with their kids than other parents probably were.

  • Kitkat

    Drew must know alll the dirt on vanessa hence why he’s valuable.You gotta be careful in hollywood. I think drew and gg are currently vanessas closest friends but drew, stella and laura know the most in terms of behind the scenes.
    GG is not well liked amongst vanessa fans and I cant pinpoint why. Shes similar to vanessa in wackiness – but I think the fans are worried shes misleading vanessa despite vanessa being in hollywood her whole life so is old enough to figure out who to hang out with.

  • rainbow2

    Thank for the info and clarification! Agreed! I liked how you broke it down. She is getting more noticed on ig and her overall stuff in her career.
    Austin is just waiting right now. Did you know she was looking for another house. I though it was strange how she, “leaked,” it at a
    Josh and Shaenee? house on a Saturday night.

  • Kitkat

    If not directly effected, its best they stay out of it. Because everyone looks like hypocrites right now. Everyone hung out with Harvey. Joked with him and all, yet now they are shocked about allegations even the public knew?? Even Lawrence and Jolie are being called liars purely because its clear this is just a moment of “I cant believe this! ” bandwagon.

  • rainbow2

    Yea, Drew knows everything. I like him. He is low key, but there for Vanessa. He was the one who went with them to Miami for the New Years Eve with Kim, and Andy at the time. I thought why take Drew with them? I take GG over Ashley. Laura knows things, but I feel Laura put her career on hold to hang with Vanessa when she needed her. Now, she is doing more stuff than before. They see GG as out there and not reserved like her other friends.

  • rainbow2

    Agreed! Everyone knew but didn’t say something for fear for their careers. Remember Zac and Vanessa did interact with them when they appeared at the Oscars. There are pics of them together. Vanessa wore a Machessa Dress and went to her fashion show when she went to NY.

  • Kitkat

    I knew she was moving but I didnt know she leaked the info, to josh and shanae? Is that her new double date couple?
    I wonder what happened to her and shawn pyform. They were very close and suddenly nothing.

  • Kitkat

    I had to google it but yes I remember that dress, the red marchesa as well as her black Oscar dress. She also wore marchesa throughout bbma awards which fashion bloggers found interesting since she has been advertising chloé a lot yet changed. Interesting…

  • rainbow2

    Shawn commented on one of her ig pics lately. Yea, it was on a snapchat video. Josh and Shanae? is more Austin’s friends than Vanessa.
    It was this weekend when Vanessa commented on it August 20, 2017.

    Yea, it is interesting what Vanessa is doing right now. She finally posted on Shannara on her ig:

    Noticed how Vanessa stands out in the crowd with her orange outfit.

    What is funny to me about their posing, it never changes only this time Austin’s head is touching Vanessa, but their body language never changes:

    Vanessa did lay it on thick last night, but noticed her ig didn’t really get the whole
    cast. She looked out of place to me at the screening. It was about Austin for sure PR, but JMO> it is beginning to look awkward.

  • Kitkat

    I guess we spoke too soon on her doing less pr for him
    I guess it was only a matter of time
    Did u see rose McGowans emails? She posted about the verbal abuse she got from her managet evan, and hudgens confessions realized that its the same manager as vanessa. Now its looking like vanessa could have been spoken down to on many occasions by her management
    Thats hollywood for you

  • Kitkat

    Ah I just saw this and accidentally commented about it to you just now

  • Kitkat

    It looks so stupid when she does thIs. There’s being proud and then there’s being overbearing. She’s doing to much, but it looks like she is being told to do this

  • Kitkat

    She does look out of place, its pRobably because she shouldn’t really be there since the cast doesn’t have their partners there. It looks like she invites herself like an overprotective gf even though that may not be the case. And tbh, things like this make u think of those relationships where they try to cover up the fact that there’s infidelity through excessive closeness. Or they feel guilty so project that guilt by checking up on them more

  • rainbow2

    No, I didn’t see it. WOW! It says a lot of Evan’s credibility. Not good for him or Vanessa. I think Sofia Viagara is rep by him as is Emily Ratajkowski. Yea, I don’t doubt it. Remember Vanessa is not white either which makes it more believable she was talk down. I remember she did an interview where some casting personnel said, she wasn’t to white, or to Philippine.

    Yea, she did PR, but the amount of it was low compare to her projects. I just found it odd how she didn’t have any other cast member on her snapchat video only the one guy Marco.

  • rainbow2

    Yea, She did only the basic of PR for him. She didn’t do it last year. She only posted on her ig about Shannara. Now, she was at the viewing party, but didn’t interact with the rest of the cast which I thought it was strange. I posted a comment saying it was only with Marco she did.

  • rainbow2

    Good points! I think both of them are ready to move on. They are hanging together for PR purposes? I agreed about overprotectiveness may not be the case. Looking like they are close is what they want to show fans they are close.

    And his ig doesn’t go up at all! I see how Austin didn’t do any PR as much either for his show. It is like he rely on Vanessa for all the PR.

  • rainbow2

    It amazes me how Austin’s sister didn’t make a single post on her ig about Austin’s
    show, but post on Vanessa’s show and when they went to SYTYCD?
    https://www.instagram.com/_ashleybee_/
    No pics of Austin with her when she went to Australia and visited the set of Shannara with her fiance.

  • Kitkat

    yeah and the fact that evan is still her manager is questionable. but hes managed her, selena, emily and sofia – all of which have a similar look and target audience no?exotic brunettes. vanessa struggles a little harder because shes not white like you said and probably deals with lowkey racism even from management.

    maybe she only likes marco – or he only likes her out of the others. or she doesnt like the cast that much

  • rainbow2

    Forgot about Selena. Yea, I bet all of them experience some form of racism while dealing with Hollywood management.

    Good point! I think she doesn’t like the cast. I remember how Austin would hang out with them and Vanessa Morgan would start posting snapchat videos with Austin. When she went to see in during February, it stopped. There was this night time snapchat video where Austin was in a car discussing the food? You could tell Austin was close to the cast. What about their bonding in the pool and hanging out:

  • rainbow2

    https://twitter.com/Shannara/status/918341465511575553
    See how much the cast was together a lot.

  • Kitkat

    even though the blind item about vanessa and zac just proved how easy prey vanessa was back in the day, im still torn by the fact that this year she wore a string of marchesa dresses – and there are talks that if you were her dresses, weinstein has done something to you. i would hate to think she gave in

  • Kitkat

    vanessa would never expose weinstein if the event is true (and i believe it is) because she has been through too much with the media to deal with it all again.

  • rainbow2

    Or she was loan these dresses as PR for his wife. She did go to her fashion show. Maybe she is friends with the wife. Or to compensate for what happened 10 years ago as she could wear Marchesa dresses when she wants too? but she didn’t do any movie with Harvey Winstein? Bandslam? Sometimes, Vanessa is to trusting with other people.

    In the blind, some other answers were Rob and KStew. Funny, becasue this blind was about Zendaya:
    ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 10/11 **#10**
    This former Disney actress has barely said two sentences about Harvey. She has a lot more she could say but won’t. She is one of the victims and doesn’t have to say a word. I think she thinks people will take it the wrong way because she went all in on the sex for roles and the Marchesa dresses. The whole Harvey train. This is not Bella Thorne although it wouldn’t shock me at all if she has a Harvey story or 20. Zendaya (Marchesa dresses)

  • rainbow2

    Yea, she went through the ringer with to much scandal with her nudes pics twice. Right now with the blind is giving to much PR to them, but I wonder if this is a good thing for them. It puts Vanessa and Zac in a better light about them as a couple. This PR could be good for them even though it happened under difficult and scary event.

  • rainbow2

    Lately, there has been some blinds about Zac and Vanessa. Seems odd to me and I wonder why.

  • Kitkat

    Were there other ones besides the recent Weinstein one u posted?
    Although it stated that he didn’t manage to bring down their careers, I believe he still had a hand in their lack of success, especially vanessa. Zac is doing okay but could b so much better. And vanessas is always hit and miss, like from grease live to powerless to the bbmas to sytycd

  • rainbow2

    This one was about her career and Zac, but didn’t paint Zac in a good light
    http://blindgossip.com/?p=84975#more-84975

    This one is has the girl, “singled,” which I thought couldn’t be Vanessa
    since she has a bf. I was wondering if Hollywood knows more about Austin and Vanessa’s relationship. It didn’t matter becasue the majority of the answers were Zac and Vanessa.
    https://blindgossip.com/?p=86728#more-86728

    Good point on their success. Maybe he did in a way, but didn’t want the public to noticed by having her wear Machessa dresses.

    This one is about Ashley:
    5/25/17 Blind-item #11 Having no luck with the acting thing and watching her former co-stars eclipse her, this former Disney actress from that huge franchise is trying to reboot it and also trying to become a YouTube star. Anything to keep her in the public eye and to make some money. (Ashley Tisdale High School Musial). http://crazydaysandnights.net/2017/05/blind-item-11-420.html
    5/22/16

  • Kitkat

    i saw the first one, which paints zac in an awkward light – and like i said, hes a pretty man in a pervy world so unfortunately i wouldnt be surprised if it was true

    the second one was very strange! why would they paint her as single unless they know something – like you said. they used a lot of key words like powerless and high school hinting to vanessas career. most replies were her. and i cant think of anyone else who it would be. so i think they forgot :/
    im so shocked!

    its funny that ashley is jealous of vanessa when zacs technically a bigger star – but i guess vanessa is her closest competition.

  • rainbow2

    Yea, I thought how strange how the blind painted Vanessa as single, but what was more strange and had me scratching my head was this paragraph:
    “Fast forward a few years, and they are both still single. However, their careers could not be more different.”
    Huh? it is saying if I am reading it right, both of them are still single to imply both of them were never in another relationship? That is the part which I found weird and strange. So her relationship with Austin was nothing? becasue we know Sami was PR is Austin just PR?

  • rainbow2

    Ok this was posted on hudgensistersconfessions:
    vanessa mentions on BG that she was dating austin for 4
    and a half years so this year would make 5. so that means the *6th
    year* we thought was just a flirty phase before dating

    The episode was filmed over a year ago so that’s how long they were dating
    at the time but now it’s the 6th anniversary. It just took a long time
    to air.

    This was Bear Grylsis episode. So she is dating him? Not her bf? Yet, she calls him, “her man, or bf,” when she needs to for PR? Yet, it Maria from hudgensistersconfression they are together for almost six years, yet the blind gossip says he and she have been single and hasn’t been in a relationship since they were together. You have to read my other comment to understand what I am saying her. Just overall strange.

  • rainbow2

    Amazes me how Vanessa can climb in ig followers and Austin doesn’t? His show premiered and no new ig followers. His ig lacks any real PR for Shannara while the rest of the cast had a lot of ig postings. Weird especially since Austin is one of the leads in the series. Shouldn’t he have moved or something by now? He only moved after Vanessa posted a Happy Birthday post. Alexandra moves more than Austin.

    Vanessa:
    9/24/16 – 26.9m
    10/2/16 – 27m
    10/15/17 – 27.1m

    Austin remains the same:
    3/21/17 – 1.5m
    8/27/17 – 1.6m

  • rainbow2

    Well…..Austin don’t tweet or post an ig about his next episode for Shannara Chronicles yesterday, but the cast do? He is one of the lead of the show too. His sister don’t post on her brother new show for the second week at all but does Vanessa’s show on Bear Grylsis and SYTYCD right away or before it aired. ?????? Nothing from Vanessa yesterday on seeing his show either. ???? Makes me wonder she did her minimal part to spotlight him as desirable leading man, but fell flat. Fans noticed.

  • rainbow2

    LOL! Austin doesn’t really care for his new show as much! I have not seen any interviews of Austin about the show? There didn’t seem to be much PR for it. Still nothing on his ig about last week.

    Vanessa is doing a lot of PR for Halloween which leads to her Halloween parties. I see the latest pic show a loving couple:
    https://www.instagram.com/p/Bait62Sjpnd/?taken-by=vanessahudgens
    Ashley is getting some PR! Funny how Austin was the only one not posting on the craving party. He didn’t post a pic. Strange. His sister Ashley B went and she didn’t even post on the craving night:
    https://www.instagram.com/p/Baf5wMegj4c/?taken-by=nataliesaidi
    Only Natalie did.

  • rainbow2

    HMMMM…..well this is interesting. It is 7:30am in LA. No new ig followers, and he stopped following 2 accounts, He is following 98 ig accounts, deleted his Shannara videos all 3 or 4 of them. Wonder why? No new ig followers still at 1.6m. Strange to me because Vanessa got new ig followers 27.2m, but he didn’t?

  • rainbow2

    Still the same at 7:37pm. wonder why he deleted the Shannara Chronicles ig posts? His numbers on ig followers remain the same. I check with the other cast members of TSC and they have their ig postings still for the show. This is really strange. He is one of the top stars of the show. Vanessa did PR for Powerless till the end as Gigi. She never stopped till the shows were cancelled.

    And this post on Vanessa Morgan:
    https://www.instagram.com/p/BZcfFHyBr_j/?taken-by=vanessamorgan
    They are going to be filming TSC or she is visiting Paradise, New Zealand?

  • rainbow2

    Well, well, well, Austin got new if followers today! WOW! I wonder if someone is reading this thread after all!

    Austin
    8/27/17 – 1.6m
    10/25/17 – 1.7m.

    Vanessa is posting on him a lot lately especially today. She is trying really hard to make him a desirable leading guy. It is falling flat to me. And he hasn’t posted anything on TSC. Wonder why he removed the gifs or videos. This is his show?

  • rainbow2

    I see on hudgenssisterconfession they posted on why Austin deleted his TSC posts. Makes no sense at all becasue the show is still on and he hasn’t done anything to start promoting it like his costars. I made a post on it. Waiting to see if she will post on it.
