James Franco Apologized to Justin Bieber for his “Boyfriend” parody.

james-franco-justin-bieber

Earlier this month James Franco recorded a parody of Justin Bieber‘s hit song “Boyfriend,” posting the music video to his WhoSay account (. The video was celebrated by Franco fans and even Justin’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

James Franco said in an interview with E! at Sundance:

“I was asked to take it down by some people. Bieber didn’t contact me, but I don’t think he was too happy. I wasn’t trying to diss him.”

The video has Franco emulating Bieber, rocking a hoodie, flat-brim hat, and the teen sensation’s trademark bangs. Watch the video:

    • Cloe

      Justin is not gay leave the damn boy alone that porbably why he trim his hair and I didn’t see noting wrong with his hair it looked just fine how it was before.And it got nothing to do about selena left him she left Nick Jonas too which it was Miley Cyrus boyfriend but now they broke up cause selena stole her bf and She was with Taylor Luathner but then again she broke up with him for idk for what reason.

      • essie j

        @#Believe in Biebah

      • Alyssa sweetie luvzjb

        Jb don’t care about haters. He is all the way on top, while the haters are so low that they need a ladder to reach an ant’s ass.

  • Me

    so I didn’t get the point…is the 2d girl was Selena????

  • Real Alisha

    I don’t like to watch any parody video………………… Are james n selena friends?

  • #JustSayin

    leave ‘em both alone! i think it was adorable of james franco. if you guys think that was lame of him then think of it this way, at least he managed to memorize the lyrics! justin still wins this game. now doesn’t mean justin didn’t react, he’s mad. or if he is, well being in silence just simply means to him “kill ‘em with kindness” rather than have more drama

      ppl*

  • daughterofLordRauhl

    Well, that parody wasn’t the best one I’ve ever seen. Which is why I ignored it. But I think that some people (or a lot of people) overreacted. The people that didn’t respond are the mature people. Don’t understand why James had to apologize, not all parodies are meant to diss people. I guess he just figured that since some immature people overreacted that everyone did. But whatever.

  • tayyy.

    what i don’t get is why a 34 year old guy is making a parody video anyways, and on an 18 year old’s music.

  • BLUEJAYS

    I ask Justin about this He said that he didn’t really care but Selena right after their break up to them they can do it. But she now can not give the permisson to do it as long is their not boyfriend and girlfriend so I couple of fans of Justin bieber ask him to take it down and he did. Because Selena not his girlfriend any more that why he didn’t out of respect for Selena and Justin bieber. I think it was Selena crew that really ask him to take it down. Not Justin he could care less and Out of respect for her he did.

  • Mannan

    Hy,beiber brother. You r so nice.And your smile so sweet.Most people jaalace to you.But no problem.Carry on.Your friends always with you.I pray to God that you live long life and happy always and save to every problem. God bless you.
