The shots of Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens on the set of their new movie, SPRING BREAKERS, are kind of funny in how over-the-top they're efforts are to break loose from their kiddie show past. The asstastic cut off shorts, the pot shirts and slutty little tiny dress things all scream for some grown up attention. The movie revolves around 3 college girls who rob restaurants to fund their spring break, only to get caught, jailed, then sprung by a mob guy who wants to employ them as thugs. Obviously a far cry from Disney and ABC Family shows.
The only problem is that it's too obvious an attempt at breaking out of their kid show profile. You can't go from doing concerts and TV shows for tweens, straight into felonious co-eds working for the mob. That's just alienating the adolescent audience that adores you for the adult audience who don't know who you are. I guess they expect the cheeky cut offs will help facilitate the switch over. Hmmm, that might work, actually. Keep climbing that slutty ladder, ladies. You'll make it
