If it seems that we're obsessed with James Franco here at SFist, it's only partly true. The fact of the matter is the man is a whore for the internet, and attention, and he continues to do relatively interesting and blog-worthy things. Take, for example, that documentary about Kink.com which premieres at Sundance on January 19. Or this latest lip-dub effort along with rumored girlfriend Ashley Benson.
He's lip-syncing to Bieber's "Boyfriend," and Benson appears in it as well. In the video, Franco and Benson wear wigs as if to portray Bieber and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. As the YouTube re-uploader says, Franco "deleted it but it was too late."
There's a little more to this though... Benson recently dumped the Bieb's pal Ryan Good in order to get with Franco, and she was supposed BFFs with Selena Gomez, who supposedly just broke up with the Bieb, so it seems a little cheeky of them to be doing this song. And no, we do not keep track of such things, but a little internet research just went a long way.
This is the third time in recent memory that Franco has made one of these videos. He also lip sync'd to Rihanna for YouTube last year, and a video also surfaced of Franco in a car lip syncing to Selena Gomez's "Love You Like a Love Song." Franco co-starred with Gomez and Benson in Spring Breakers.
