Shields also tweeted a link to a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot. The clip was originally published on YouTube, however, the video has been removed. No word yet as to whether Shields removed the video or if YouTube did.
In the video, Griffin says: "This is fake blood, just so you know. I won't give away what we're doing, but Tyler and I are not afraid to do the images that make noise. He also lights me to the point where I look about 15. First I'm an artist, but really it's good lighting."
Griffin then joked: "We're going to prison – federal prison. Call your dad, apologize."0comments
