Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Back Together. Really??
Twilight fans will be glad to know that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are back together. The whole thing strikes me as a bit fishy, though. Forgive me for a bit of negativity here, but I want to express a few thoughts. First, if you’ve got Robert ‘Edward Cullen’ Pattinson wrapped around your little finger, why the hell would you cheat on him? The guy is generally gorgeous and isn’t likely to lose those looks either. If you’re willing to blow your relationship with the guy that so many Twilight teeny-boppers would kill to have, you can’t be that bright.
Second, I question whether or not these two are in a genuine relationship. In my previous paragraph, I questioned Kristen Stewart’s intelligence, but that really shouldn’t be necessary. R-Patz and Stewart are together because it’s a way to continually sell the Twilight franchise. It’s also a way to help sell tabloid magazines and to draw attention to the film’s leading stars. Since it’s a steamy, sexy romance, it would naturally seem cool for Pattinson and Stewart to have a steamy and sexy romance off-camera.
For a while, they’re everyone’s darlings, but once the attention wears off, they need something new to happen. Hence Kristen’s ‘affair’. It’s something that’s meant to refocus attention on themselves so they can push Twilight movies and more tabloid magazines. It’s no different than Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez being an item. It isn’t love at first sight, true romance or a genuine connection between them. It’s a Hollywood-manufactured courtship.
But it’s okay. How could I not forgive Robert Pattinson? Just for fun, he’s a shirtless pic of our dear Edward . . . .
