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?
Twilight season is really heating up this week! Robert Pattinson and Ashley Greene kicked it off early with a red-carpet appearance in Paris on Sunday. Last night, we got a glimpse of the honeymoon scene, courtesy of Access Hollywood. And then at 12:01 a.m. today, MTV and VH1 premiered the video for Christina Perri‘s “A Thousand Years,” the second single off the Breaking Dawn soundtrack.
The clip features several scenes from the movie that have already been featured in the trailers and TV spots: those sweeping shots of Forks; Jacob receiving the wedding invitation; Bella and Charlie walking down the aisle; Bella and Edward in Rio, on a speedboat headed for Isle Esme, swimming under the waterfall and, of course, in bed. But the one bit of dialogue from the movie that we hear, Edward and Bella whispering “I love you” to each other at the altar, is a new tidbit. All of it is made extra super romantic when set to Christina Perri’s lilting waltz and those heartbreaking vampire-ready lyrics: “I have loved you for a/ Thousand years/ I’ll love you for a/ Thousand more.”
The song’s not going to be playing throughout all these scenes in the movie, of course. If it does, in fact, show up in the film (since many soundtrack songs don’t), we’re dying to know where. The folks at Summit really should have asked us for our opinion, but let’s pretend they did. After the jump, vote for which Breaking Dawn book quote goes best with “A Thousand Years.”
