Spring Breakers starlet confirms Justin was offended by the parody she did in a new interview with Seventeen...plus, which costar is she trying to set up? Ashley Benson is setting the record straight about the parody video of Justin Bieber's 'Boyfriend' she did with James Franco. Although she sports a dark wig in their version, she never meant to diss Selena Gomez, her Spring Breakers costar and Justin's ex.
"I haven't heard from Selena [about it]," she says in a new interview with Seventeen. "People thought that I was being mean, but I was just doing what the girl did in the video. It wasn't a jab at her."
But she did hear from Biebs, and he wasn't too thrilled. "But I heard from Justin. He wasn't happy...but all is well in that area now," she says.
Ash also spills about her new adult role with Selena and Vanessa Hudgens, saying: "Selena, Vanessa and I all came from a Disney background, and this was different from anything we've done. But we wanted to prove that we're not just girls who play happy parts. I'm really excited for everyone to see it."
The Pretty Little Liars actress also says she's looking to set up her single costar: Shay Mitchell! "She's been looking for [a boyfriend] for three years," Ashley says. "I'm always on the lookout for Shay. I'm always trying to get her a boyfriend!"
