Between Kanye’s interruption of Taylor Swift’s Best Female Video acceptance speech, Janet’s MJ Tribute, premieres of the Fame Music Video, “Twilight”‘s Extended Trailer, “This is It“, Michael Jackson’s unseen rehearsal footage doc, Lady Gaga’s suicidal performance and the ever obnoxious Russel Brand (no one wants to get in those pants mate), MTV’s 2009 VMAs was full of excitement. My favorite part bar none though was the finale duet by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys (minus Lil Mama…). Empire State of Mind is an infectious surefire hit blending rap, RnB, and classical music flawlessly. I’m not big into rap, but this song is seriously smooth.
The Book Twilight
I see lots of people complaining about various aspects of Twilight. Well, I read about half of the book. It’s written at a sixth-grade level. No, worse. It reads as though it were written by a sixth grader. In the diner, someone orders “chillie”.
I did not finish the book.
Twilight: I can’t say I’m a convert, but I actually enjoyed this movie. The sexual tension between Bella and Edward is constantly on the brink of exploding, making for an extremely engaging movie.
–> heavy handed 80s music (are you KIDDING?)
–> Kristin Stewart:
a) Sounds like a man
b) is incredibly smug
–> Robert Pattinson‘s pouty lips and lusty close-ups
–> the questionable writing. eg.
“Your scent, it’s like a drug to me. Like my own personal brand of heroin.” Again…are you KIDDING?
–> uhm, hello! Robert Pattinson!
–> Nikki Reed‘s hilarious moodiness
–> Interesting looking Alice & Jasper Cullen
–> the revelation that vampires both play baseball and climb trees with extreme fervor
–> Taylor Lautner…yum.
Best/Most Hilarious Part: Rogue vampires try to eat Bella during a Cullen family baseball game. The Cullen’s are none too pleased. Edi Gathegi (Laurent) says: “I can see the game is over.”
Apologies for reviewing a PG-13 movie like an NC-17 pay per view special, but Twilight was so overloaded with sexual innuendo, I almost felt dirty watching it (Note: I am not a prude). Even though I know from interviews that the series author Stephenie Meyer implemented a strict no sex til marriage rule for Bella and Edward, I was still waiting for them to bone the entire film. Fail. I guess I’ll have to be patient and check out the next installments. Twilight Saga: New Moon hits theaters November 20th.
For the love of Twilight, follow @PeterFacinelli. Facinelli, an actor in the Twilight series, needs 500,000 followers by tomorrow to help him win a bet. Check out the details of the bet between him and his friend Rob “Rob D.” DeFranco here.
“I need your help to win a bet. I’m sure you have caught wind of this bet my friend has with me. Rob was at my house and wanted the backing of my Twilight chair. He loves to bet, so he bet me for it.”
Now, if Facinelli gets his half-million in time, DeFranco has to dance down Hollywood Boulevard in a bikini while singing Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” and holding a sign that says, “Twitter Me.”
To be quite honest, I don’t give a flying f*ck about Twilight, but here’s to all of those that do. Help a brother out.
