Vanessa Hudgens: I was ‘most scared’ of wild threesome with James Franco, Ashley Benson in ‘Spring Breakers’

22, 2013 5:00 AM PDT Loading… This ain’t no High School Musical! E! News has exclusively learned that Vanessa Hudgens , who broke into Hollywood with sweet, adolescent musical hits, is returning to recording for the first time since leaving the Disney fold with a sexy new single inspired by her edgy movie Spring Breakers. Hudgens tells us that she is releasing the song “$$$ex,” written and produced by hit-makers Rock Mafia and featuring the five-member girl group YLA, along with a video on Friday timed to the wide release of her new movie in theaters. “It is a bomb-ass song, I love it so much!” says Hudgens. “It goes perfectly with Spring Breakers.” The fast-paced, club-ready dance track is about, well, exactly what the title suggests, with provocative lyrics such as “Can’t you feel my hot sex, heart stop beating” and “Fifty in his pocket/a condom in his wallet/he’s not gonna sleep tonight.” Where’s our innocent Gabriella?! “It is a great song you can listen to in your car or at the club with your friends,” Hudgens says of “$$$ex,” jokingly adding, “It is a good date-night song, and a good after-the-date song! The song gets you amped up in the same way the movie does.” See where Selena Gomez, Katy Perry and more stars are sitting at the 2013 Kids’ Choice Awards The tune is something of a passion project for Hudgens. The 24-year-old actress hopped at the chance to do a track featuring YLA because her best friend is group member Laura New. “I love YLA and Rock Mafia so much, so I jumped at the chance to collaborate with them,” she explains. Rock Mafia producer Antonina Armato, who has worked with Hudgens’ Spring Breakers costar Selena Gomez on several songs, thinks Hudgens is an underrated artist. “She’s an awesome singer,” Armato says. “She puts her whole spirit behind the song.

It makes sense that the ultimate spring break party flick would require its actresses to push a few boundaries, but “Spring Breakers” star Vanessa Hudgens says she was more than just a little uncomfortable letting the trashy side take over. “The thing I was most scared of was the sex scene and the nudity issue behind all of it,” Hudgens, 24, told MTV News . “I was not down to show this.” RELATED: SPRING BREAKERS TRAILER: DISNEY DARLINGS GO WILD Gesturing to her chest in the sit-down interview, she refers to a wild threesome scene she has in the movie with costars James Franco and Ashley Benson. “There were like a few little portions that I was like, ‘Can we please get rid of that?'” she said, adding that director Harmony Korine was understanding and supportive about her discomfort. “It was like a great compromise. I think that it turns out really beautiful and artistic.” Michael Muller James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine star in ‘Spring Breakers’ out March 22. Hudgens, who shot to fame in Disney channel’s “High School Musical,” has been guarded about her image since 2007, when a leaked photo showing the good girl posing nude made its way around the web. RELATED: GOMEZ, HUDGENS ARE BIKINI GIRLS GONE WILD “That was just a really sh—y situation that sucked,” she said in a recent interview with Paper magazine . “That was by far the worst moment of my career.” The buzzed about flick, out March 22, also stars fellow Disney darling Selena Gomez, 20, shedding her clean-teen image for the raunchier role. “It was just kind of like, ‘This is crazy! This is happening!'” said Hudgens.

Primitive instinct! Vanessa Hudgens channels Jane of the jungle and shows off her toned torso in a midriff-baring suede cloth-style top

But it seems that Vanessa Hudgens may have also been inspired by Tarzan’s mate Jane of the jungle. The 24-year-old actress put her figure on display once again as she stepped out for lunch at Joan’s On Third in West Hollywood, California on Tuesday. Near naked beauty: Vanessa Hudgens borrowed a look from Tarzan’s mate Jane on Tuesday when she stepped out for lunch in West Hollywood wearing a skimpy suede top and low-hanging skirt Vanessa’s penchant for skimpy clothing was revealed this time in a midriff-baring suede cloth-style top that left much of her lily-white waist exposed. The starlet added a feminine floral skirt that was draped low over her hips and flowed to her ankles, while brown leather platform heels adorned her prettily pedicured feet. In contrast, the former High School Musical star chose to conceal her head in a wide-brimmed black hat and dark-tinted shades. But then she drew more attention thanks to an unusually long pair of earrings that cascaded from her earlobes to her chest. Boho: The 24-year-old actress added long native American-style earrings, a choker necklace and a floppy black hat as she grabbed a bite at trendy Joan’s On Third In the mood for more shopping: After lunch Vanessa strolled by a few Bohemian-style shops with a gal pal She’s got it: Vanessa has no qualms flaunting her toned figure, the hard-won result of all those workouts Earlier in the day, Vanessa had put in a sweaty workout during spinning class with her sister Stella. For her studio session she had worn knee-length black leggings with an animal print vertical stripe going down the sides as well as a loosely fitted black sweat shirt with an artsy design and an animal print athletic top underneath. Vanessa’s long hair was piled on top of her head in a hastily made updo with strands going every which way while dark purple-tinted shades concealed her eyes. Ladies lunch: Vanessa caught up with some pals at Joan’s On Third for lunch at an outdoor table Getting her greens: The actress filled up on a delicious salad and water at the trendy eatery Rather have something else: The floppy-hatted starlet looked like she would rather have a juicy burger Her Nike trainers featured a stylish wedge heel that gave her overall outfit a beneficial lift. Vanessa hit up a supermarket with her sibling, no doubt to pick up a large bottled water and perhaps even a healthy snack. The petite starlet probably needed some replenishing after that grueling exercise session. Big mouth: The talented starlet made it look easy as she munched away on yet another forkful of food She just can’t get enough: She may be a slim starlet but Vanessa certainly has a large appetite Takeout: The well-heeled star left happy with a takeout bag and hopefully sated with her friends in tow Rustic: Vanessa let long hair flow naturally during her outing Her favourite thing to do: Vanessa loves to go to lunch and shop after a good workout, which is how she started her day As Vanessa must know, spinning is an excellent way to burn calories because it employs a stationary bike that has various tension levels. With the right instructor and dynamic music, even the laziest of people can be coaxed into giving it their all. Sweat fest: Earlier on Tuesday, Vanessa put in a grueling workout in spinning class with her sister Stella in Hollywood Stylish animal: Vanessa’s exercise gear consisted of black leggings with animal print stripes, an animal print athletic top and artsy sweat shirt Vanessa’s complexion was still gleaming with sweat as she strolled down the sidewalk with Stella, who was wearing a light grey workout ensemble and a similar hairdo.
