In a brand new interview, James says that when he posted a video of himself singing Justin’s song ‘Boyfriend’ he was told to take it down — Read on for his message to Justin!
James Franco is regretting his decision to mock Justin Bieber. The actor and his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson, parodied Justin’s hit song “Boyfriend” on Jan. 8 and he tells E! that it wasn’t long before he got a lot of heat from some higher-ups to delete it.
James’ Apology To Justin
James posted the video of himself dressed as Justin, lip syncing to “Boyfriend.” He put the video on his WhoSay account and even though many of James’ fans enjoyed the video, the actor quickly took the video down. James sat down with E! at the Sundance Film Festival to explain why he deleted the video and that he didn’t mean to upset Justin.
“I was asked to take it down by some people,” James says. “Bieber didn’t contact me, but I don’t think he was too happy. I wasn’t trying to diss him.”
Selena Mocks Justin Too
Justin’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez posted a video of herself on Dec. 13, singing along to her bestie Taylor Swift‘s hit single “I Knew You Were Trouble” and many fans felt like this was a message and diss to Justin. Why? Because Justin allegedly cheated on Selena with Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin.
At the end of Selena’s video, she says: “You’d think that we’d know better but …” Wow, now this definitely seems like a diss!
Even more recently, Selena performed at the UNICEF charity concert on Jan. 19 and sang two cover songs: Justin Timberlake‘s “Cry Me A River” and Taylor’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.” Both are break up songs, and it leaves many wondering if this is Selena’s way of getting over Justin.
