A writer for a celebrity website has written one of the saddest celeb-encounter stories I think I have ever read. Molly at popsugar.com was thisclose to being there before anyone else but passed up an interview with Rob Pattinson at the 2008 MTV VMAs. I won't tell you who she was interviewing instead, but let me assure you...it's sad. It is one of those times that a person wishes they could invent a time-machine or have Alice's ability to see the future. Personally, I have had times where I came in contact with celebs (one in particular that I LOVE) and luckily had someone with me to say, "Say something to her!" so I did. However there was one time I could have gone to try to meet another celeb (Brendan Fraser) but I didn't go and I really regret it. This trumps all of that though. If it were me, I would never forgive myself, but luckily this girl works in an industry where she will get other chances. Give it a read. Thanks to RobPattzNews for the heads up.
Robert Pattinson Celeb Sighting! (AKA The Saddest Celeb Sighting Story Ever Told) by Molly
In September of 2008, I was still resistant to the Twilight phenomenon. It was idiotic, I know, but the movie hadn't come out yet and the books seemed a little too young for me (again...no need to say it, I KNOW). Considering what percentage of my day and job — PopSugar.com — is taken up by Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and all the rest of the cast now, it feels so silly. And thus begins the story of my biggest professional, nay...life, regret. My colleague and friend Becky and I were set to attend the 2008 MTV VMAs in LA. We were so excited for our first big red carpet together and got all gussied up for the event. During the red carpet the celebrities' publicists would come over to offer interviews for their clients "Would you like Kid Rock? Would you like Chris Brown?" Then, one came over and said, "Hey, would you ladies like to chat with Robert Pattinson? He's from the upcoming Twilight movie?"
I answered, "Is Kristen Stewart available?" since at that point, she was more famous to me (Panic Room being a classic, in my eyes, plus she had worked with Adam Brody...). The publicist said no, we gave a tepid "Sure, we could maybe talk to Robert..."
Right as Robert was making his way down the red carpet, closer and closer to us who did we see but Brody Jenner! Believe me, this hurts me to even talk about, but we let Robert walk right by. We were trying to talk to Brody. As you can see from this photo — we were SOCLOSE. Sigh, how much would I love to have that moment back? Since then, Robert has obviously blown up into one of the biggest stars in the world. There will be chances to talk to Rob on red carpets to come, but nothing like catching him right before the storm, right before everything changed in his quiet life. My celebrity sighting of Robert Pattinson is a sad, sad tale.
Lesson learned: Believe the hype and never question millions of teens. They're usually right.
Epilogue: At the InTouch Icons and Idols afterparty that night at the Chateau Marmont, Robert was alone smoking in the corner all night. Not even talking to anyone. I was busy making small talk with one of the kids from Greek. FML.
Again, thanks to RobPattzNews I can report that Empire Magazine has a list of the 50 sexiest male movie stars and I am very glad to say that Rob is number 2 on that list. I replied to a comment that one of my readers (Casey) made yesterday, saying that Rob would always be my number one. I must go on record and say that as far as Twilight guys, Rob will always be number one. However, anyone who knows me knows who is truly my number one. Empire Magazine also thinks he's number one. Here he is and if you have a problem with it...you're crazy. I'll share two photos to make up for the suckfest above that is the photo of Brody Jenner.
Johnny Depp completes me, but here is a sexy picture of Rob, too...just for good measure. ;o)
Well, since the New Moon soundtrack hit stores today, you knew it would only be a matter of time before the soundtrack for Eclipse would be speculated about. The band Muse may become the "Twilight Band". In an article on MTV.com the band discusses how they are friends with Eclipse director David Slade because he has directed some of their videos. They also talk about how they have become a new band in the eyes of so many even though they have been around since 1994. They have a song on the Twilight and New Moon soundtracks so the odds look good, but nothing is set in stone. I would also like to repeat how much I love twifans.com for all of the dish.
Just one more quick bit of Rob related news thanks to robsessedpattinson.com. Rob will be featured in Joepie Magazine, which is a magazine from Belgium. He looks so young, but so sexy. I love the little bit of skin showing. It reveals one of those spots that I really love on a guy. I want to nibble it. *blush* Enjoy!
Oh my. Can I just say how much I have changed since 2001. Last night I read some entries in an old journal and I can't believe how I used to be. Zane's birth changed me so much for the better. Although, I used to get a lot of dates! Something has happened to my game. That and I have become a bit of a hermit and don't have as many friends as I used to. I have no desire to go to bars and I don't really have any friends to go with. My cousin Evan is so awesome and we go out on the town together every now and then, which is always fun. The only drawback is that I think sometimes people think we are "together". Now that my hair is brown, I feel a lot more confident. I am about to up my "game" a bit more, so hopefully there will be good news on the horizon.
I am so glad that it is the weekend. My mother, my step-dad and I are planning to take Zane to Boo! at the Zoo tomorrow and I am really looking forward to it. Zane is going to be Snake Eyes from G.I Joe! It's a little creepy, because the mask looks like a man's face and it is weird to see on Zane's little body. He loves it though. His dad usually takes him every year and I think that might be in their plans for next weekend, but it is the sort of thing that I think will be enjoyable more than once. I have never been, but apparently the kids get to walk around the zoo at night and get candy, and it's not scary. It sounds like a lot of fun and I am looking forward to it. Hopefully I will have a couple of pictures of Zane in his costume to share on Monday.
I am also extremely excited that the weather is going to be very Autumn like. This is my favorite time of the year. I know I've said it before, but I love wearing boots, scarves, coats and hats. I love to drink cider and mulled wine and curl up with a blanket and read. It's just cozy to me and I am glad that we will have the chance to get out and enjoy it.
I just wanted to let my readers know that I have decided that I will no longer be blogging on Saturdays and Sundays. Of course I haven't blogged the past couple of weekends, so this isn't much of a departure. Everyone pretty much has their own things going on during those days and the hits to my blog are typically very low on those days. Therefore, I will continue to do my best and bring you my Twilight tidbits and personal musings Monday through Friday.
Be sure to comment if you want to, 'cuz it completes me.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
