Earlier today, MTV News premiered the trailer for Harmony Korine’s highly anticipated film Spring Breakers, starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine. It also stars James Franco as a rapper/drug dealer called Alien, who is an exact replica of Hive favorite Riff Raff. So what does ’ol Jodyhighroller think of Franco’s performance?
“Although there is only one Riff Raff, James Franco did his thing,” texted the rapper while in New York ahead of a show tonight. He added, “James Franco has diligently studied my style for months on end and he should win a Grammy.”
“My close friend Harmony Korine is an innovative genius,” Riff Raff continued, explaining that the director “… knows how to put puzzle pieces together to make a movie have a certain original and eerie vibe rather than a simple storyline.” Then after asserting that he has “complete consent” over the flick, he teased that Spring Breakers 2 is already being plotted and that he’s ear-marked himself for an acting role in the sequel.
Spring Breakers is due out March 22.
