A small group of people was gathered for a private party. When a song by a popular black artist (now deceased) came on, [Stewart] went on a rant.
“OMG! Seriously? Seriously?! What the f*ck is this? I don’t want to listen to this disgusting ghetto music! Change it now!”
This event occurred in a hotel room. Someone put on a song by the late Tupac Shakur, and Kristen made the unfortunate “ghetto” comment. There were a few people in the room who weren’t as pale as Kristen (is anyone?), and they found the remark offensive. Nobody challenged her on it. They just changed the music and commented on it when she left the room.
It sounds to me like she’s an idiot who is unfamiliar with the sounds of Tupac. She probably only knows him as a hologram. However, Blind Gossip isn’t letting it go there. They’re pressing their “Kristen Stewart Is Racist” theory:
That comment might just be a footnote if it wasn’t for another recent event that touches on the same topic.
Ben Affleck got too busy to do the con artist romance Focus with Kristen Stewart. Now Will Smith is assuming the Affleck role, but “Stewart fell off with the feeling that the age difference between the two would be too large a gap,” Variety reports. (Smith is 44; Affleck is 40. Stewart is 23.)
In any case, Stewart needs to tread carefully if she wants to avoid even the appearance of insensitivity to minorities in the future. In fact, if the chatter on this one doesn’t die down soon, you can expect that she will be pushed into a project with a black costar.
I agree with the “age excuse is flimsy” part. It’s like when Bradley Cooper said he wouldn’t date Jennifer Lawrence because she’s young enough to be his daughter, and then goes and dates someone who can’t legally drink in America. Something’s going on there, but maybe she just thinks Will Smith is a douche. Making a stupid comment about rap and not wanting to work with Will Smith isn’t enough to brand someone racist.
If this story became a big thing though, it certainly wouldn’t help her, as she’s already very much hated.

It was Kristen Stewart‘s 23rd birthday last week, and to celebrate, on-again boyfriend Robert Pattinson apparently decided it was a good opportunity to hand over a precious family heirloom: his grandmother’s pearl ring. Apparently he didn’t bother to put it in a box or leave a card or anything, he just wrapped some tissue around it and slipped it through her mailbox, which is a surefire way to get something thrown in the trash, in my books.
Anyway, here’s the scoop from OK Magazine:
“Rob gave Kristen his grandmother’s treasured pearl ring,” a source said.
“He just casually wrapped it in tissue, put it in an envelope and slipped it into her mailbox. No note, no words, just the ring. It was a huge statement on Rob’s part symbolising his full forgiveness of Kristen and his renewed trust in her future.”
Pattinson also bought Stewart a number of other gifts, including a pen worth $53,000 to add to her collection.
The insider added: “There was the latest chain and bracelet set from Versace, and a Hermès silk scarf.
“He also managed to get hold of an original vinyl copy of her favorite Van Morrison song, ‘Madame George’.”
There are so many things to “LOL” and “WTF?” about here. First of all, a $53,000 pen? I begrudge spending $1.99 on a pack of Bics. Second of all, ‘Madame George’ is KStew’s favourite Van Morrison song? ‘Beside You’ is a way better track on Astral Weeks, but to each her own, I guess.
This story is probably total bullshit anyway, and KStew doesn’t really seem like the diamonds and pearls type (?D to the I to the A to the M…?), but whatever.

Chris Brown is a hated celebrity but apparently not as much as Anne Hathaway (which James Franco totally gets, btw). Star magazine released their super scientific list of top 20 most hated Hollywood celebrities. Weirdly Jay Leno is more hated than Chris Brown, which is making me laugh really hard. Here’s the stupid list:
20. Chris Brown
19. Jesse James
18. Taylor Swift
17. Shia LaBeouf
16. Lindsay Lohan
15. Angelina Jolie
14. Jay Leno
13. Ashton Kutcher
12. LeAnn Rimes
10 and 11. Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian
9. Anne Hathaway
8. Justin Bieber
6. Matt Lauer
5. Katherine Heigl
4. John Mayer
3. Jennifer Lopez
2. Kristen Stewart
1. Gwyneth Paltrow
This is a pretty good list. I’m shocked to see that Kanye West isn’t on here. I love him but I thought he was one of the most hated people around. I’m not sure if he’s psyched or pissed not to be included. I also didn’t realize that people hated Matt Lauer this much. Damn. Too bad this poll was taken after Justin Bieber’s idiotic Anne Frank statement or I’m sure he would be higher up. Kristen Stewart now has the dubious honor of being one of the most hated and least attractive female celebrities. Hey, good for her! At least she’s good at stuff!
Who is your ultimate most hated celebrity?

Robert Pattinson finished with Kristen Stewart a while ago, but if there’s one thing we all know, it’s that Robsten is unbroken. Or… something. People just won’t let these two break up like they were always going to do anyway, and now that they’ve been seen in the same place again – namely, the birthday party for Katy Perry‘s assistant (and Kristen’s possible LOVAH), Tamra Natisin. Because two people can’t be in the same place without f-cking, didn’t you know?
Now some source has gone over to Hollywood Life and started spouting off about how Rob’s living at Kristen’s again and there’s even wedding bells in their future. Well, that’s the most untrue (and disastrous) bullshit I’ve heard in a while:
A friend of Kristen’s tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Rob is living at Kristen’s. He considers it his home, Kristen’s there, their dogs are there and most of his stuff is there — that is whatever is most important to him. He considers Kristen’s home, his home too. I guess his home is where is heart is. And right from the get go Kristen made it clear that it was also his home.”
Our insider says that Rob, 26, and Kristen, 22, are recovering from their trial separation quite nicely. “Again they have been inseparable since Rob’s gotten back. I think the distance did them good. Rob isn’t showing any signs of needing any sort of space from Kristen, that’s for sure.”
As previously reported, a source close to KStew told us that she’s regained her confidence in the relationship. “Kristen is confident that her relationship With Rob is stronger than ever and has no problem whatsoever with Rob wanting to take things slow. They have been together pretty much non-stop since he’s been back. He has just only arrived but the first person he wanted to see and spend time with is Kristen, and of course Bear and Bernie.”
Listen, I like Rob and I like Kristen (or at least don’t give enough of a shit about them to hate them) but this is just not going to work. Kristen is too much of a stone cold butch bitch to cater to Rob’s emo ways (LOVE U, ROB) and she’s also GAYYYYYYYY (or maybe that’s just wishful thinking). Sorry, I’m Team Tamsten on this one. I mean, come on:

No one gives two shits about Stephenie Meyer anymore now that the whole Twilight saga is finally done. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have probably deleted her number from their iPhones and added her email address to their spam filter, but like door to door Jesus peddlers, Stephenie won’t go away that easy. To stay in the press, she’s opened up and admitted that she blames herself for KStew and RPattz’s relationship woes because if they weren’t involved in the Twilight brouhaha, the whole Rupert Sanders cheating scandal probably wouldn’t have happened.
From The Times:
“Here’s the thing: there are some actors who are looking to be world famous, to be that household name, and although they might discover that there are a lot of negative things involved in that, it’s what they want.
“But that doesn’t apply to Kristen and Rob. That’s what makes it kind of ironic and tragic. I just don’t think they enjoy the parts [of fame] that other people would. And I totally get that, because it would not be my thing either.
“At the same time – and this is where the guilt comes from – it’s created this nice, peaceful place for me. They took all of my heat, which I feel bad about. If they had the choice, I’ve no idea if they’d even do Twilight again.
“I just don’t know. I think this has all come at a heavy price.”
What are you even talking about, Stephenie Meyer? This couldn’t have less to do with you if it was about, I don’t know, Daniel Radcliffe being a secret boozehound. The only heat they’ve taken is probably being told upteen times what shitty writing is involved in the storylines. And yeah, Rob and Kristen don’t “like” fame (though they love the money that comes with it, obvs) and there might have been some total desperate wannabes out there that would have hammed it up in front of the camera 24/7, but being famous and not really feeling the media doesn’t make couples cheat on one another. Are you an idiot? Sorry… silly question. Forgot I was talking to the author of Twilight.

Despite recently being voted the least sexy actress in an online poll, Kristen Stewart has done quite well for herself with the gents, bagging Robert Pattinson and even getting some downstairs action from her Snow White and The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. I don’t know if either of those are bragging points, but let’s just go with it.
KStew worked hard to get out of the dog house and back into Rob’s dirty underwear and she’s not about to jeopardize that again, which is why she’s been ignoring Rupert’s advances. The director is said to have trying to get back in touch since his wife, Liberty Ross, decided she’d had enough of all this f-ckery and filed for divorce from his ass.
From Radar Online:
“Rupert’s reached out to Kristen, but she doesn’t want anything to do with him,” the source tells Radar.
“He texted her a number of times after Liberty filed for divorce, however Kristen didn’t respond.
“In truth, she regrets ever getting involved with Rupert, because of how much it hurt Robert and the amount of public backlash she was subjected to.
“Kristen doesn’t really know what’s going on with her and Robert at the moment, and she’s been left in limbo. Ideally, she would like things to go back to how they once were, but that’s proving a lot more difficult than she imagined.
“But when it comes to Rupert, that ship has sailed,” the source reveals.
Listen, I guarantee you Kristen was not trying to get with Rupert on the regular, so I don’t think he’s all that hard to resist. I think she’s a stupid kid who made a stupid choice because some older man flattered her into bed (or into the front seat of his car). I have no tolerance for cheaters and there’s no defending what she did, but I don’t think she was ever planning on being with him, so obviously she’s going to tell him to jog on.
