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!

  • rainbow2

    Hello! I do too! Weird though! Wonder why they don’t make a post. Like they start and erased it.

    The person, “Guest,” had to search my posting on the numbers for ig over a month ago.

    Austin made the headline with Cameron Dallas. It wasn’t a solo one on JJj!

    He didn’t get the headline for JJ, but from reading the comments, I just realized the main guests at the fashion show were sons of famous people. LOL! and a few sprinkling of other guests. No wonder Austin went and front row. Waiting for the DM article to come out.

    Cindy Crawford’s son got the headline for JJ and Jude Law’s son on JJ.

    See how some fans see things differently with Vanessa and Austin than I do:

    Wonder who did the error? His team? And who is going to be fired after this
    mistake.

  • rainbow2

    You know after rewatching the videos of inside the after party, I can see why Austin would be jealous. She didn’t walk the red carpet or took pics with Austin at the show. Yet, she got the attention from the videos dancing sexy with a simple white dress which popped and made her look sexy and sultry to me. Lainey was right. There are people who would be jealous of Vanessa’s fame right now. I really feel Austin is one. The other one could be Ashley just by her actions and the way Vanessa goes out of her way to do PR for her. JMO>

    Again I know we talked about her, but the rainforest event showed it to me clearly.

  • rainbow2
  • Kitkat

    Wow that sucks for him – what a waste of time, they should’ve been more careful. But I can’t help but think they took a chance with guest actor because supporting actor was a stronger category

  • Kitkat

    Apparently -according to hudgens confessions – Vanessa’s manager wasn’t there but austins manager was because it was an invite for him but vanessa basically tagged along . Lol! Someone wrote this in almost immediately after the question about where vanessa was and how her manager was with her. I actually wrote that question. Last time I said about how she went to the mountains for work and all the fans screamed it was a romantic getaway and made it sound like they knew all the facts – and they were all wrong because it was bear grylls. I couldn’t see austins manager but u said u saw Vanessa’s – can u show me the pic? I couldn’t see him. Vanessa must’ve been busy all day because no fans saw her and she only came out at night

  • Kitkat

    Yeah he hasn’t mDe the headline he’s just in the article as a general c list celeb. Sucks for him because he’s probably more well known than half of them – his team just need to work their magic a little more

    What was sad, JJ did a Spotlight segment on Austin for one month. Spotlighting him for the When to Watch in the future. Why didn’t they put his name in the title on JJ which is more an adult site than JJj. His team is not helping him, I wonder if Vanessa time only helps him to a point, his team has to do their own PR to get him noticed on other sites. ” Like we got your foot in the door, but you have to do some work too.”

  • Kitkat

    a LOT of high fashion houses are based in milan so even if she doesnt get d&g at least there are more brands to choose from like:
    Armani, Miu Miu, Moschino, N°21, Prada, Valentino, Versace and Giuseppe Zanotti,

  • rainbow2

    Brett went with her not Evan her manager. Brett his her PR manager.
    This pic

    https://twitter.com/anna_redden/status/743554129407025152
    You can see Brett profile on the left hand side of the pic. I thought it was the airport attendant that we saw in the loooongggggg video of them inside the airport, but the airport attendent doesn’t look like this guy. My first thought was Brett which it does look like him. You can see he is holding his ticket and id in his hand. I figured if Austin and Vanessa were at the counter, they would have had their tickets in their hands giving it to the clerk at the counter. Brett his holding his ticket and id waiting his turn.

    Good question! See how fans don’t want to see how Vanessa is not on a romantic getaway with Austin.

  • rainbow2

    Yea, Zac wore Armani and I pretty sure Vanessa knows the connection to the fashion house. Wasn’t her dress for the GG the gold one was from Armani? She went to Moschino event in LA.

  • Kitkat

    i know thats the ironic part – but i noticed that even other stars who go spotlight segments dont get much coverage on JJ anymore.

  • rainbow2

    Must be a PR move than from their team. It is up to the PR team to push it more than the actors! Well, Austin’s team is this guy

    For sure, Jean Smart, is a nom. Her name is on two of the critics list. This is really great news for her. No wonder she has to look stable right now. The packaging is everything. Look what Leo did. He dropped his supermodel gf Kelly before the Oscars and was on his best behavior till the Oscars.

  • rainbow2

    Not to be mean, but why would you go out and eat after a long night at the event? Don’t they have room service at the hotel? Just saying?

    Again, he gets in the car before her? He doesn’t even look back at her. I know that I am being picky, but he is showing more and more why they are just friends.

    When you look at the pic of them walking to the car…why is Austin going one way and Vanessa the other way? They took separate cars?

  • rainbow2

    Waiting for the DM to come out……

  • Kitkat

    what DM? about them leaving?

  • Kitkat

    yeah i would want to stay in , maybe they wanted to get out or just show their faces?

    lol he really doesnt look back, its weird because he used to appear like a gentlemen when they first started dating, but i guess it was partially for the cameras, because no matter what age those notions dont disappear.

    i think its the same car or at least im assuming. they have arrived separately and left separately before so i wouldnt put it past them.

  • Kitkat

    shes even higher up on the list which is a plus.
    very true, no screw ups right now – and like you said this could be why they never broke up. and if she really cheated this is probably why they are pushing them even more to distract us from what they are fixing behind the scenes.

  • rainbow2

    No, from the fashion show! Nothing out of it. I was excepting something from Vanessa with Austin attached, but nothing so far.

  • Kitkat

    yeah, i dont think there will be an article because it was just a video – maybe a future article when they get back in la if vanessa posts the video on her own ig.

  • rainbow2

    True! But noticed Vanessa didn’t post anything on her ig account and Austin didn’t either. Strange don’t you think? Why wouldn’t Austin post on his ig about him going to D&G fashion show? And his numbers didn’t go up either. They are at 1.1m. Wouldn’t they climb after his, “appearance,” at a fashion show at least?

    Did you see the pic I posted on Brett with Vanessa and Austin at the counter at the airport?

  • rainbow2

    He never appeared as a gentleman. LOL! If you would see pics of them walking together, you could see he never looked back or for her. It was all for the pap pics. They went to a Laker Game earlier in their, “relationship,” and they were doing the, “PDA,” for the cameras. When you saw the pics of them leaving he was miles ahead of Vanessa. That why from the get go I thought how strange….you do the PDA, yet you walk ahead of her afterwards walking to the car?

  • Kitkat

    yeah i think this is the one event austin will def lose out on if he doesnt post at all – its a high fashion house event and it needs to be seen so people know he is serious about his take on fashion

    i think vanessa will post on it this week purposely late for extra distraction for whatever else she might have planned or just to buy some privacy.

    i saw the picture of brett – it kind of looks like him, i wish there was a better angle.

  • Kitkat

    yeah its true….
    ok i guess this relationship will be extended until at least next spring. july/august is filming and promo, september is the emmys, and christmas just sucks and is her birthday – reminding people of how she split from zac the same time. plus her show premieres after christmas. so spring seems just right. the strain of rumors and filming will work then.

  • Kitkat

    notice how she hasnt been snapchatting? we do have wifi in europe lol. kind of like how she didnt use snapchat whilst filming – which is why i think she didnt just come for austin.

  • Kitkat

    wearing the clothing is still different to doing campaigns for the brand. particularly when its just one off moments. so if she ends up wearing more, theres a good chance she will work with them – kind of like how selena kept wearing louis vuitton and ended up doing their campaign.

  • rainbow2

    I do too! But it does look like his profile to me and why would he stand so close to them.

    Good call! Post late for more noticed!

    Austin don’t post which is weird.

  • rainbow2

    Good point! She hasn’t used snapchat at all! Not even on the plane or inside the venue.

    She didn’t. She went for another reason. Keeping quiet about it. But she did accomplish a goal – squash the cheating and break up rumors with the trip for now.

  • rainbow2

    I think in the fall of this year, they will split. I dont’ think she wants to take him to the emmy if she is nominated. JMO> She looks over him. They are clinging by a thread to me. Austin does not care becasue he gets free PR from her. It showed this weekend becasue where are his PR for this event from his team? His ig is a good example of where is his team milking this for him?

  • rainbow2

    I just realized from your post on the gold derby link of the list of actresses. Her team is doing campaigning for her, but quietly. Yet, her performance must have really impressed them to be among these actresses. I saw one of the The Wiz actresses on the list as well. This really is bringing great PR for her acting.

  • rainbow2

    You know someone had to go with them to the show. How else are you going to go to what show and overall the time table and where to mingle.. PR people have to go with you. Yet, Austin’s PR team where were they? I doubt Vanessa went by herself too. Who did her make up and got her ready? They were not seen for a reason. Remember we don’t know everyone they traveled with when they do shoot or here in LA.

  • Kitkat

    She just posted the video of her dancing. God it must annoy ashley to see vanessa at big events like this. What a perfect platform for her merchandise.

  • Kitkat

    You could be right, they could angle it as him being jealous of her success – even if it’s not entirely true.

    What I will forever wonder is if they break up at anytime, where does that leave their tight friend group? Will they split up between them and choose sides? Will stella stop talking to him? Will he move out? Will stella move out?

  • rainbow2

    First, he will move out becasue he never lived with her. It was for PR. There is to much not of him living with her. Their friends will be the same to me. They were hers before him. The only friend that was mutual was Ashley. Everyone else was Vanessa. Ashley can juggled the friendship since she does it with Zac. Stella is going to follow her sister. She did the PR becasue Vanessa told her too. She was close to Zac.

    I stills say he is jealous. What has Austin did beside be Vanessa’ bf? He is known for the TCD and Shannaran, but when you see him on the street he is still Vanessa’s bf. After almost 5 years, you still consider it. Your ego is going to take a hit to me. It shows how he goes out of his way to take pics of fans and leave Vanessa behind when he should be protecting her. JMO>

  • rainbow2

    OUCH! Yea, I could see it being annoying and frustrating to Ashley. She went to Milan for the mens’ fashion show for D&G courtesy of her bf! LOL! She didn’t walk the red carpet, but only danced becasue it was the set up for them inside to have fun! Look! She stole the show and the spotlight from Austin!

    Strange, Austin still don’t post on D&G even though he attended the actual fashion show on is ig account.

  • Kitkat

    notice in the background of the video of her dancing, there are tons of guys recording her too? theres the main camera guy but in the reflection you can see camera phones too lol. i guess people enjoyed her dance LOL i wonder how austin felt.
    yeah ashley can afford dolce and gabbana but has she ever been invited to their shows? she doesnt really get invited to fashion shows.
    yeah he should post it for his own benefit

  • rainbow2

    OMG! You do see guys just starting at her while the main cameraman is taking her pic as she dances to the music.

    You know what I found strange now, the snapchat video came out earlier than we got pics of them at the party from the other snapchats videos? She was at the party earlier than Austin?

    What a blow to your ego on D&G ig, no pics of Austin attending the show, but they have the snapchat video of Vanessa’s dancing.
    Only these two of the guests sitting on front row

    cute interaction with austin but im not gonna lie its very “buddy” like how i am with my close guy friends.

    but i dunno this is their relationship or whatever.
    because i also play fight with my bfs

  • rainbow2

    OUCH! See how we are showing, “friends,” more and more. Her guard is being let down. She slaps his hand after she leaves the stage in front of people? Friend zone! A room full of guys where the testosterone is running high and this is what you do to show your are the bf?
