Harmoney Korine talks to GQ about Selena Gomez’s new film Spring Breakers.
+ new still from THE GETAWAY.
MTO reports that Selena broke up with Justin over his relationship with Rihanna (LOL!): Justin Bieber and his longtime GF Selena Gomez are OVER. Selena dumped him after she heard RUMORS that he and pop SUPERSTAR Rihanna were getting very friendly and Selena suspected that Justin was SMASHING!!
And word is that the rumor of Rihanna-Beiber is SO PREVALENT that it got to CHRIS BROWN. And THAT’S what promoted him to BLAST Rihanna in that Theraflu remix.
Ever since I was little, I would just make stories up in my mind. It was based on people I saw in the street or someone I would talk to or I would hear a specific voice. I’ve never actually directed anything I haven’t made up. I’ve never adapted anything. It usually comes from somewhere… I let myself dream.
GQ: You have so many different elements in this movie—James Franco, South Florida, Selena Gomez. It seems just like a great reason to throw all these things together. There’s something inherently funny about that.
Harmony Korine: Yeah. Those are just things I love in life.
GQ: You’d once said you’d love to have someone like Miley Cyrus to promote one of your movies. And you sort of did that here with Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez. Why did you think they’d fit into a Harmony Korine film?
Harmony Korine: I think they’re great, terrific, awesome. I thought they’d be perfect. They’re exactly who I wanted.
GQ: They’re also incredibly young. Or at least they look that way. Does youth play a huge role in your movie?
Harmony Korine: I wouldn’t say I’m especially interested in youth culture. I don’t really care that much about hanging out with old people. I mean, I will hang out with an old person. It’s not that I’m against it. You only have a short time on this planet, you might as well enjoy it. Hang out with a young person.
