We pose a lot of questions here at the FABlife. Rarely do we expect the actual subject of our questions to respond. But Christina Perri did just that! After her video for “A Thousand Years” premiered last week, we asked you to pick which Breaking Dawn quote went best with the song. Here’s Christina’s answer:
“The quote from the poll that most fits ‘A Thousand Years’ from the Twilight books is the one about pulling them together under the water forever and loving each other forever,” she told us, referring to this one, from the first night of their honeymoon: ” ‘Don’t be afraid,’ I murmured. ‘We belong together.’ … ‘Forever,’ he agreed, and then pulled us gently into deeper water.”
“I wrote ‘A Thousand Years’ about Edward and Bella being madly in love with each other for the past 1,000 years and for 1,000 more years and forever and ever and ever. So that quote fits the best!”
Makes sense to us. And who are we to argue with a girl with a Twilight-inspired tattoo?
“I got this tattoo in 2009 in Portland, Oregon, where they filmed the first movie,” Christina explained of the tat on her wrist. “The word ‘bitten’ is in the font of the Twilight books, and I got it to solidify my obsession with the book. I thought I was ‘bitten’ with the obsession of the series … and the love story … and I still am.”
I think I can safely say that’s exactly how a LOT of us felt when we first read Stephenie Meyer’s books. (For your amusement, here is my first panicked fan testimonial, from 2008. Wow, I can’t believe I actually used to be embarrassed to walk around with vampire books!)
