“American Idol” star Adam Lambert is a self-professed Twilight fan, and now the singer wants his piece of the Twi pie. In an interview with MTV, the scandalous singer revealed that he’d love for one of his songs to be featured on the upcoming Eclipse soundtrack. Wouldn’t we all? (Eh, Glambert’s chances are probably a little better than ours.) Check it out above.
Taylor Lautner sat down with Conan O’Brien on The Tonight Show last night, glowing with the knowledge that New Moon made almost three times its budget in one weekend. After describing a fan riot in Brazil (“there were flexi-cuffs on the doors…[they] just went Pop! Pop! Pop!”), the underage werewolf broke down the three types of fangirls he encounters while gallivantingacrossthe globe to hawk his vampire movie/money-printing machine. They are as follows:
Screamers: “The most mild fan…usually we do not meet fans who do not scream.”
Criers: “You feel really bad…you want to do something, so you grab their hand or give them a hug, and it just gets worse. Then they are literally on their knees crying.”
Hyperventilators: “You don’t really have to worry that much, because they just pass out. They just *snaps* are gone.”
Wait, what about adult women uncomfortable with Bella’s extreme passivity but can’t stop watching anyway? And those moms who want Taylor to sign their underwear? Maybe they all scream too. As funny as Lautner’s anecdotes were, the highlight of the interview was when Conan revealed the junior athlete can catch grapes in his mouth from a long distance. Watch the feat—along with yet another shirtless clip from New Moon—after the jump.
We’re sure Ashley Greene wasn’t purposely trying to plug starvation as a weight-loss method when asked by reporters about how she stayed skinny for “New Moon.” The poor girl’s barely been in any movies, so she’s a bit, uh, green when it comes to repeating rehearsed lines prepped for her by her publicist. At least that’s what we assume happened when Ash gave this obnoxious comment to Us Magazine. “It was really easy,” said the actress, when asked how she stayed svelte. “We were working 12 hours a day, so it didn’t leave too much time to eat.”
Even more priceless is this observation from the mag: “After her response, her publicist nudged her, but Greene didn’t seem to care about her blunt answer.”
Blunt seems like a very nice way of calling Greene’s answer straight-up stupid, which we’re happy to do even if Us won’t. Regardless of how inexperienced one is with dealing with the press, shouldn’t stars know that providing thinspiration to their tween fans is totally taboo? [Photo: GettyImages]
5. We’ll be honest. We thought Anna Kendrick‘s role as Jessica in Twilight was annoying and poorly acted. Homegirl stepped it up for New Moon! She provided some of the most (intentionally) funny moments in the film as she frankly expressed her annoyance with Bella’s depression and lack of appreciation for shopping.
Twilight Saga: New Moonreview time! We caught New Moon last night (yes, squeee!), and while the movie will undoubtedly make Twi-hards bubble over with excitement as the title card rolls, the much-anticipated film was filled with moments of ridiculous lines, shots, and less-than-Pixar quality animation. [Ed. note: While Taylor Lautner standing in the rain shirtless, above, may seem to qualify as cheese-tastic, there were far too many squeals of joy in the theater for us to knock it.]
Here are our top five most unintentionally hilarious moments (and yes, there are spoilers up ahead):
5. The animated wolves. If they looked fake on the big screen, we can’t imagine how horrible they’ll be on our 27″ screens on DVD.
Four more Velveeta-licious moments after the jump!
Co-stars and rumored-couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been hopping all over Manhattan the last couple days wrapping up their press tour for New Moon. The pair has consistently tip-toed around the question on the tip of every interviewer’s tongue; whether their steamy onscreen relationship has seeped into their personal lives. Despite leaving Twi-hards with nothing but paparazzi shots of hand-holding and OK! magazine covers to debate, their interviews have proven them to be very likable and amazingly unaffected by their phenomenal fame.
On the “Today Show” this morning, RPattz confirmed every tabloid rumor ever, telling Matt Lauer that in the last year, he’s been engaged, dated constantly, overdosed on drugs, and dated someone named “Listten Hewert.” Before and after the interview, he graciously signed autographs and took photos with the crazed fans that had occupied Rockefeller Center for over 24 hours. See clip above.
After the jump, see Kristen Stewart spill the beans to Jimmy Fallon about Martha Stewart‘s crush on Pattinson and toss a football around. We’ve also rounded up Rob’s appearance on Letterman last night, as well as Kristen on the “Today Show” yesterday.
Miley Cyrus may only be 16, but she is already above it all. Fresh off admitting she has never heard Jay-Z nor has any desire to, the pop star declared in two different interviews (so far!) this week that she doesn’t have the slightest bit of interest in Twilight. “I’ve never seen it and nor will I ever,” she told Ohio’s Q92 Sunday. “I don’t believe in it. I don’t like vampires. I don’t like any of the stuff. I don’t like the wolf that pops out of the screen when I’m watching my TV at night. I don’t like it. I don’t want anything to do with it. I don’t like the shirts. I don’t like any of it.” Not even Taylor’s abs?!
She repeated her objections to Dave Smiley’s radio show Monday. “It’s a cult…don’t even talk about it…my sister is obsessed…why? I don’t get it. It’s like Star Wars or Harry Potter.” Wow, nothing but Criterion Collection DVDs and Nina Simone albums for Hannah Montana, apparently! Either that or she hates anything that takes space from her at the poster store.
It’s not just fantasy franchises that get this girl’s goat. Watch her interview after the jump to find out just how beyond Twitter she is now.
RPattz fans suffered a false alarm on Twitter last night, thanks to a fake People cover announcing Robert Pattinson as 2009’s Sexiest Man Alive (come on, people, what kind of headline is “Fergie: Talking Back”?). The “news” appeared on quite a fewblogstoday, despite a warning tweet from the magazine this morning. People will reveal the real cover tomorrow, and we pity any fool that gets the nod instead of Pattison. Considering the Twilight star is a little young for the mag’s tastes, we’d suggest more mature hunks like Jon Hamm, Gerard Butler and Mark Wahlberg stay clear of graveyards and teenagers this week.
Soak in our Robert Pattinson megagallery and get excited for the big reveal, Twi-hards. Has it really been a year since Hugh Jackman got the nod?
We’ve stared at our share of Kristen Stewartphotos, and trust us – the Twilight star has serious style. While she keeps it super casual during her down time, she favors towering heels, super-short hem lines, and edgy mini-dresses while strolling the red carpet. Kristen may have declared herself “skinny fat,” but you wouldn’t know it from her stick-thin legs, which she flaunts with fervor. Low-key hair, smokey eyes and minimal jewelery complete K-Stew’s signature look. Not many stars can manage looking both beautiful and bad-ass (hello, bullet skirt!), but this girl’s got it down.
We’ve picked the best of the actress’ looks – ranging from the 2008 and 2009 VMAs to her recent European press tour promoting New Moon – for our gallery below. Is it any wonder that she caught Robert Pattinson‘s eye? [Photos: GettyImages]
Kristen Stewart, is that really you? The Twilight star looked unusually frisky at a fan party last night in Madrid (the cast’s second photo call that day), showing up in a slip of a dress complete with see-through skirt panels. You’re an adult now, Kristen—you shouldn’t be showing Taylor Lautner your underwear! One has to wonder what’s bringing out clumsy Kristen’s stylish wild side…someone want to ask Rob Pattinson?
