MSN Year in Review 2008: Regrettable Trends

Image
MSN posted up a slideshow on Regrettable Trends in Pop Culture under their Review of 2008 article. twilight is in the list.
Totally disagree with this one (hardly anyone regrets twilight!), thought the reason why twilight is on their list is... interesting.
"In the weeks before the movie came out, fans of the book series stormed suburban malls to see the Boy Who Would Play Edward. Injuries happened -- including some self-inflicted neck wounds because, apparently, not all fans are aware that Edward is just a pretend vampire/perfect boyfriend/accomplished Volvo driver.
The backlash may have already begun, though. It started with the fourth book in the series, which featured some bruising love scenes and a medical procedure that will forever be referred to as "The Edwardian Section." And it was sealed with the release of the movie. Even though fans mostly loved it, they also snickered at the rather over-the-top dialogue.
"You better hold on tight, spider monkey!" is …

Robert Pattinson Defends Heath Ledger’s Honor

Image
RPattz does good!

Earlier this month, RPattz attended a show at a place called The Improv (at the US, I think...). A (tacky & heartless) comic made a joke out of the death of the late actor Heath Ledger (How mean!!).
RPattz felt offended and hurt, so he stood up for Ledger! Pattinson reportedly yelled “F**k you! You suck!” at the comic’s attempt at humor.

Vanity Fair Q&A: Ashley Greene

Vanity Fair did a Q&A session with Ashley Greene. This one is, like, a month ago... sorry...
"VF: Did you immediately like Twilight when you first read it?
AG: Oh my gosh, yes. My managers can vouch for how badly I really wanted the part, and my friends and family know how hard I worked on it. I can relate with the fans as far as how they’re in love with the Edward character, because he’s literally this perfect being and I totally get it. It’s so funny working with all these people and seeing them in real life. I’m just as big a fan of Stephenie [Meyer] and of the books as anybody else. I just happened to get the opportunity to portray Alice."

Year in Review 2008: Literature

Dallas News sheds some light on this year's literary news. Stephenie Meyer is at No 3.
"If you think 110,000 books sounds like a lot, it's nothing compared with the 7 million copies sold of Ms. Meyer's Twilight saga, about teenage Bella and her vampire boyfriend, Edward. It was a big year for the author, who turned 35 on Christmas Eve: She published her first adult novel, The Host, in May; the final Twilight volume, Breaking Dawn, in August; and saw the film version of Twilight land in theaters in December.
