Afternoon Links: James Franco Paps Himself

James Franco — a person who long ago traded sleeping for producing his varied brands of art, art, and more art — apparently has a new hobby: He’s self-papping. In a series of photos posted on his Instagram feed, Franco dedicated the staged images to sites like Just Jared, Gawker, and Perez Hilton and graffitied them with MS Paint messages: There he is making out with a blonde woman in a car (“Look closely Mr. Roadhead!”), and then he’s over there, kissing a dude (“Just a Franco afternoon,” #gay). I guess when you’re feeling violated, it makes sense that you’d want to take matters into your own hands.
