Hey gang, we’re back! This is my favorite episode of Pretty Little Liars yet (of the two I’ve seen) and I think it’s all because this episode features a parrot and a dojo. Those two things speak to me. Anyway, let’s get down to it.
Pretty Little Liars is a super complicated show with a cultish fanbase, so naturally a person who’s never seen the show should recap the fourth season premiere. Let’s do this.
The cast of Spring Breakers spent most of the shoot in bikinis, but the gals went for glam at their movie premiere in Paris on Monday. Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine all shone on the red carpet, but all in very different styles!
Since set photos were revealed last year, we’ve had ample time to get over the shock of seeing Disney/ABC Family stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens (along with fourth star Rachel Korine) traipsing around in bikinis, drinking beer on the street and hanging out with a corn-rowed James Franco. So today, when we finally get to see the full trailer for Spring Breakers, we are nothing but thrilled about this movie’s March 22 release. There are so many things to love: It’s like the second coming of Magic Mike (in that it reminds me why I got the hell out of Central Florida as quickly as possible, and that it’s a lot of hot young things showing skin in Central Florida); it looks both funny and dark; James Franco is appropriately crazy in it, also, Gucci Mane! And we have to say, to the wary parents of college-age kids, we think it might be a good cautionary tale too.
Here are 15 terrible things these ladies do on their wild, restaurant-robbery-funded spring break trip, that we definitely think you kids shouldn’t try at home OR ANYWHERE:

If you’re close enough to a computer to read this, you’ve obviously heard about the tragedy befallen the town of Newtown, Connecticut. Latest reports say that 18 of the 27 people shot in a school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary are children. Police have announced Adam Lanza as the suspected gunman; his mother was found dead inside the school. If only to distract yourself from the grim procession of new details (and the tears intermittently falling out of your eyes), we gathered celeb tweets for the survivors from everyone from Rihanna to Rashida Jones to Michael Moore. For more serious advice on how to cope with the tragedy, head over to MTV Act.
November is traditionally the month that we all give thanks, and we definitely have a lot to be thankful for with these hot social media savvy celebs! Gorgeous superstars like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus couldn’t resist sharing intimate snaps with their adoring Twitter and Instagram followings. But that was just the start! Tennis legend Serena Williams showed off her championship bikini curves while on vacation, and Scarlett Johansson showed off her scandalous new tattoo. Jessica Simpson showed off her fab new post pregnancy bod, while former Spy Kid Alexa Vega showed off the fact that she grew up. What a bunch of show offs! We also heard from a crew of supermodels including Bar Refaeli, Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum and so many more, who offered up a heaping helping of sexy shots. There are so many to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming. But don’t worry, we’ve done all the hard work and assembled a list of the 50 hottest Twitpics and Instagrams from the last month. Enjoy!
All sex scenes must be incredibly awkward to shoot. That’s certainly what we’ve gleaned from every Kate Winslet interview from the last three years at any rate. There’s something about having a sex scene with James Franco, however, that seems particularly jarring. Totally awesome, of course, but also deeply jarring. Just ask his Spring Breakers costar Vanessa Hudgens. “It was very nerve-racking for me,” Hudgens said of her first cinematic sex scene. “I told my agent that I never want to do it ever again.” Can’t you just imagine James Franco using a creepy robot voice at the exact wrong moment, or suddenly looking up with tiny plastic dinosaurs Super-glued all over his face? We’re not saying you can’t enjoy that if that’s your thing, but still…James Franco seems like a sex scene loose cannon.
It probably didn’t help that Vanessa’s first foray into onscreen intimacy was part of what we can only imagine is a very seedy threeway involving her, Franco and Pretty Little Liars‘ Ashley Benson. Considering his character’s name is Alien, we’re betting James had his gold grill on the entire time. You’ve seen that Spring Breakers clip of him ranting about t-shirts and vampires! We’re just saying, it’s not like Vanessa had to make faux love in The Notebook 2: Electric Snuggaloo or anything. We won’t know the facts until we see the threesome with our own judgmental eyes! (Which of course we will. Like we wouldn’t go to see this movie!)

Remember the glee with which we told you about James Franco and Ashley Benson‘s rumored relationship? We’re glad that we stuck to the rumored part, even though we were dying for it to be true, because Franco himself has denied the supposed dating in a piece he wrote for the HuffPo. And reading it made us giggle and frown at the same time. How awesome would it have been if the two were actually together, hanging out at Washington Square Park and holding hands at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride? We are inordinately disappointed that no dating on the down-low is going down. While Franco’s piece is long and winding and deals with everything he has been up to lately — watching On the Road (a movie he auditioned for) and creating a collaborative film called Tar — but he does address all this Benson bizznezz in the end. “I also hear that I’ve been dating Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart and Ashley Benson. Hot damn, am I a lucky guy,” he writes. The part that really cracks us up is when he adds, “I wish I had actually gotten closer than the 13th row of the theater in Toronto where Kristen gave her On the Road Q and A, but I didn’t; not only did I not talk to her, I didn’t even go to the SoHo house where I supposedly asked her out on a date. As for Gomez and Benson, those are Bieber’s girls and I wouldn’t dare tangle with the Biebs. I heard he wants to kick my ass. Yikes!” Damn straight, Franco. You don’t ever mess with the Biebs.

You GUYS. We don’t know why this made our day but it really, really did. Page Six has reported that sources are whispering about Ashley Benson dating James Franco! Please tell us this blew your mind too? Of course it did. She’s a Pretty Little Liar and he’s … well … he’s James Franco of the Franco-freaky weird celluloid moments and facial scruff. And she’s Ashley Benson of vanilla perky perfectitude. Yes, she inspired us to make up a new word. Apparently the two have been spotted together on numerous occasions look very much like a couple. Of the sightings enumerated, we have Ashley and James
sitting in a tree busted hanging out together in Washington Square Park earlier this month. Last week saw them walking hand-in-hand at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride — and you know ain’t nothing more romantic that that, right? One source reveals, “They have been seeing each other for a little over a month, but things are going well.” While this sounds like the Franco-Benson union has been happening quite swimmingly, sadly their spokespeople have not been answering their calls, so we have t put it in the rumor department. But seriously — it’s a rumor we love!
