I know we’ve all had our share of giggles about Robert Pattinson and his longstanding dream of a music career. Ha, ha! But stop your laughing and dry your eyes, because Hugh Jackman will have you know that Young Mister Pattinson has a “really soulful, very pure, very beautiful singing voice.”
Jackman signed up to work with Pattinson on Unbound Captivesway back in 2009, but they first met in 2008 on a flight to Tokyo. The story about Jackman, Pattinson, and Australia director Baz Luhrmann all hitting a Japanese “karaoke box” together might be old news, sure, but this is the first time Jackman has talked about the experience.
1) Robert Pattinson has a beautiful singing voice!
2) HUGH JACKMAN WORE A SCHOOLGIRL COSTUME. (Teehee!)
From MTV’s Rough Cut, with perennially easygoing interviewer Josh Horowitz:
Josh: “Have you ever met Rob? Or have you—”
Hugh: “Yeah! I actually did karaoke with Rob.”
Hugh: “Right? That’s random, isn’t it.”
Josh: “What did you guys sing?”
Hugh: “We were on our way to Japan, and he was promoting, and I didn’t talk to him at all on the flight, because it’s just this really tall guy with a hood over his head.” [slumps in chair]
Let’s check out what Kristen had to say after she mentioned to an interviewer that her boyfriend is English:
“I never would have said that if I knew you were going to be interviewing me,” she said. “Yeah, I know it is. So much of my life is so easily Googled. I mean, it’s like, ‘C’mon guys. It’s so obvious.”
She added, “But this subject, I don’t think you realize what a big deal it is for people. Well, it is a big deal. And right now, even me talking about it like this is a big deal. They would be, ‘Oh. My. God.’ There would also still be a 50/50 split. Some people would still be, ‘See, told you they’re not together.’”
Kristen went on to explain her rationale behind trying to keep her relationship with Rob private.
“I don’t worry about it at all,” she admitted. “It’s just one of those things. I’m selfish. I’m like, ‘That’s mine!’ And I like to keep whatever is mine remaining that way. It’s a funny little game to play and it’s a slippery slope. I always say to myself I’m never going to give anything away because there’s never any point or benefit for me.”
You know, I’m actually kind of starting to like Kristen Stewart, just a little. Of course, I still think she’s a horrible actress, but the way she’s been carrying herself lately? I think I can really get behind that.
So I guess just go back to jamming out to your Paris Hilton records or whatever until it’s actually time to be graced with what will no doubt be the grandest thing to ever seduce your ears. Trust me, it’ll be worth it.
I love Robert Pattinson. You know I love this kid. But his music … I don’t get it. I don’t think it sounds good, I don’t find his voice enjoyable, I just don’t like it. And keep in mind, this is coming from a girl who can listen to some sad dude pluck a guitar and wail about his feelings and go “aww, bless his heart, he’s trying!” and jam out to his album pretty regularly. In fact, sad dudes wailing with guitars make up about 40% of my music collection (the rest is Bowie, showtunes, and Adele), but dear Robert‘s tunes just completely turn me off.
Sources describe Rob’s original songs as “guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop, like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.” These sources also claim that “music is his first love” and that he’s “tortured” because he’s too busy being a living wet dream to pursue it. And that, that I can respect.
So who’s going to be purchasing this work of art when it comes into being? Anyone?
You should have known, you guys, that when that new Breaking Dawn trailer came out yesterday, that it would bring the crazies out in full force. And judging by the video above of our favorite crazy, that’s precisely what happened.
I’m sorry if this is a little much for your Thursday morning. Make sure to turn your volume down and get ready to giggle, and I guess be careful about eating your Cheerios while you watch this, because girlfriend is out of her mind.
Even if you’re not a fan of the films (::waves hand erratically:: I am! I am!), you can’t deny that this trailer’s got some balls to it. The movie drops November 18th, and in all honesty, I think I’m going to be one of the crazy ones queueing up hours before just to get my ticket. Why? Well, because I like the movies. And because it’s an experience, you know, sitting in a theater with people like this and gritting your teeth every time some over-emotional chick screams or swoons. You know what my choice of weapon is in a movie theater when dumb asses have loud, visceral reactions to what’s going on on the screen? BUNCHA CRUNCH. You can launch that shit rows. And when the shell-shocked person turns around and sees an almost-thirty-year-old giving the stink eye and holding up the half-empty box, they shut up fast.
As for the trailer, I feel like I’ve seen all of this before, just in different sequences, but hey. It’s a testament to what the franchise thinks of their ever-adoring fans that they’re willing to splice different scenes together to intense music and give us a few extra seconds that we think we saw anyway, right?
