“I feel like I did grow up shooting this,” Selena said to Digital Spy back in 2013. “This was the first movie I shot by myself without my mom coming. It was the first time I got to improvise as much as I have.”

‘Spring Breakers’ has been described as a cautionary tale about losing control. The film follows college students Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Faith (Selena Gomez), Brit (Ashley Benson) and Cotty (Rachel Korine).

The group of friends are in need of money for their spring-break trip, and ultimately decide to commit a crime before heading down to Florida. “I read the script, and that was the role that I wanted. I loved how fierce and fearless she was. I just knew that I wanted to play Candy,” Vanessa Hudgens said to Vulture in 2013.

But this is just the beginning for them, as they find themselves in a more dangerous situation when they meet a drug dealer and aspiring rap artist named Alien, played by James Franco.
