I know what y’all teenyboppers are thinking: “Can it be? My two true loves, Justin Bieber and Robert Pattinson crossing paths in the same celebrity gossip story? Oh, my stars and garters!” Well, buckle up kids, because it’s happening.
Here’s Justin fangirling over Rob a little while back:
“One day Robert Pattinson came up to me at a party and said, ‘For whatever reason, people love our hair and it’s always a great ice-breaker with girls,’ ” Justin is quoted in The People. “He is like, ‘Hey my name’s Robert. Want to touch my hair?’ I thought he was joking, but it really works.”
Totally plausible, right? I mean, personally I can’t even begin to count the number of Biebzinson fan fiction works I’ve read that start out with a hair conversation. But then Rob had to go and rain on the parade:
“I’ve never met this guy. I saw that as well. I was like, ‘You’re really famous, man—what are you doing? You don’t need to use me to make up stories!'”
So what’s the deal here? Is Rob lying to keep up his super cool image, or did Justin just get his fantasy life mixed up with reality? Either way, I think both theories have their merits and should be extensively explored in fanfic. Link me in the comments, guys. Don’t let me down.
