Tourism is a multi-billion dollar industry, but if you were just to judge by movies, you’d want a vacation from vacations! Spring Breakers opened wide over the weekend, and although millions travel to Florida to party down each March, the whole flick kind of stressed us out.
Two of the all time hottest Disney stars unwittingly faced off in a dance battle last night, and we’re still trying to figure out who was the winner! Vanessa Hudgens appeared on The Tonight Show where she demonstrated her Spring Breakers-style booty pop dance for Jay Leno, and Miley Cyrus posted a video of her twerkin’ it hardcore to J Dash’s “Wop.”
It’s the first day of spring, and you know what that means! Yes, frigid temperatures and tons more snow in the northeast. But at least it’s getting closer to spring break season, and just days away from the release of Spring Breakers!
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!
After three episodes, The Carrie Diaries hasn’t been the huge ratings success we (and the CW) had hoped for a series of its Sex and the City pedigree, but we’re holding out hope that more people who like fashion and cute boys and New York City and all the things that are good in life will catch on soon. Regardless of how well the show does, we’re pretty sure its stars, particularly AnnaSophia Robb (Carrie) and Austin Butler (her mysterious love interest, Sebastian Kydd) are destined for big things.
Butler, 21, has been in the biz for ages now, first guest-starring on shows like Hannah Montana and Zoey 101 before landing a role in the High School Musical spin-off Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure and a recurring part on Switched at Birth. But yeah, playing the new guy with the alluring whiff of bad boy on Carrie Diaries is definitely the biggest thing to happen to him. At the red-carpet premiere of the show last fall, we asked him how he thought his life would change if the show becomes a Gossip Girl-level hit.
“I just hope I can keep somewhat of a personal life,” he told us. “That’s the hardest part about this whole thing, is like, doing your job and then when you’re done, feeling like a normal person, in a way. I like to go out and go to the grocery store and all that kind of stuff, so I hope that doesn’t change.”
Of course, Butler’s been dating Vanessa Hudgens since 2011, so he knows the kind of annoying fame he’s talking about. In fact, as we were perusing photos of him, we even spotted one of him and Vanessa going grocery shopping. And here we are, perpetuating the industry that will hound him down as he buys his veggies and toilet paper. Sorry, Austin! We can’t help it, though, he’s too adorable to ignore! Browse through the pics below and see for yourself.

We’ve already begun squealing about the return of Jim Carrey in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone after the actor’s virtually acting-free 2012…and, um, those other years before that. That’s when we realized that a ton of our favorite celebs will be all over our big and small screens in 2013 (not to mention our internets, with all their interviews and such) after a dry spell. For example, according to IMDb, this year Carrie star Chloe Moretz and Oz the Great and Powerful lead James Franco return in seven and six film projects respectively. Natalie Portman and Rooney Mara have both been off the scene since 2010′s Black Swan and 2011′s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. And Michael Cera? More Arrested Development means more sweet, sweet George Michael for your eyeballs.
Of course, some of these celebs seemed like they never left the limelight (see also: James Franco). Did you know Melissa McCarthy was in only one film in 2012? In Vanessa Hudgens‘ and Dwayne Johnson‘s case, it was the same film. (We didn’t know if either of them would bounce back from Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, but here we are.) Check the gallery below to find out more about their respective upcoming projects, and what other celebs we cannot wait to see more of this year.

Hmmm. These reports about Zac Efron allegedly “freaking out” and chasing down a photographer who snapped his photo in New York sex shop Fantasy World make us want to slip on our Sherlock Holmes hat and get to the bottom of things. (Did you know those hats are called deerstalkers? No, really!) Let’s look at the evidence:
Why would Zac be so perturbed to have his photo taken in a sex shop if he was allegedly there to film a scene for his upcoming film Are We Officially Dating? with Imogen Poots. Obviously he knows we will see him standing amid the sex toys on the big screen eventually. More importantly, Zac has already been snapped chilling next to some adult props when a fan posed with him and then-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens in 2008. Even more tellingly, Zac handled that incident with aplomb, laughing that his mother stuffed his Christmas stocking with condoms. Zac Efron told the world about his mother giving him condoms! Does that sound like the kind of guy who would be squeamish about being seen near a few bottles of lube? We think not.
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:

Did you check out our exhaustive coverage of the Golden Globes yesterday? We’re hoping you did! We thought we’d give you a tiny break from all the information and wait till you came back refreshed. Because after any awards show, you know there’s going to be a mad after-party. One of the biggest ones that went down was the “ Warner Brothers Instyle Golden Globe Party” which seemed to be the really hot ticket for the night. Because pretty much all of young — and yes, hot — Hollywood showed up in droves. You’ll be able to see all the faces and the gorgeous dresses in our gallery below, of course. Julianne Hough wore a pink Jenny Packham gown which we far preferred to her Golden Globes Monique Lhuillier poufball. Conversely, we prefer Kelly Osbourne‘s Golden Globes Zac Posen gown to the fussy lavender dress (by the same designer) worn to this party. Freida Pinto wore a sequined Antonio Berardi Spring 2013 sheath, while Selena Gomez upped the hardware with a gold Atlier Versace minidress. Her bestie, Vanessa Hudgens also went for metallics wearing a Jenny Packham black sequin, long-sleeved gown with heavily embellished gold shoulders. Ashley Tisdale went in the opposite direction wearing a minimal blush colored Issa column which looked lovely on her. She accessorized with an L.K. Bennett ‘Alexia’ clutch and Jerome C. Rousseau strappy sandals. Nina Dobrev was lady-like in a 50′s inspired icy blue Oscar de la Renta frock. Enjoy the pictures!
