Explain Celebrity Secret Couples To Me

Rob-and-kristen So, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. What the hell is up with them? They apparently greeted 2010 together off some little island in England, where they were of course spotted and of course ruthlessly tracked by every impressionable teenage girl in the area and......seriously, I don't get it. If they ARE together, could they possibly be stalked any more by the public-slash-paparazzi than they are now if they were to just ADMIT their coupling? And if they aren't together then why not go on record all official-like and maybe stop acting like they're together by getting all googly-eyed and hush-hush about the other.

I seriously don't understand this secret couple phenomenon. Don't mind us secretly holding hands and making out at concerts, NOTHING TO SEE HERE as we avoid the question in interviews! I understand the need to protect your new relationship and not wanting to share the details with the world. I mean, hell, privacy is awesome and everyone deserves a little of it, but a camera has literally followed those two crazy Twilight love birds around for a straight year, and how could their relationship be MORE scrutinized if they just ADMIT IT, OMG. Saying you're in a relationship doesn't give away all that much. Sure, I'd like to know if Kristen is as awkward and fidgety behind closed doors and does she ever smile, but you don't have to spill all by saying, "Yes, we're together, the end."

Some say it's all for publicity purposes. The "are they or aren't they?" game is what keeps people interested in the movies, the franchise, the interviews and appearances.....but, I don't necessarily buy that. If they admit, once and for all, they're not together, are they worried the interest will wane and all those clueless 15-year-olds will say "SCREW TWILIGHT THEN!" Yeah, I just don't think so.

(Can you tell I've given this a ridiculously undeserving amount of thought?)

(SERIOUSLY, THE MIND, IT IS BOGGLED BY THESE TWO.)

Because at this point, KPATZ or whatever your combined cutesy name is, people are no longer really caring whether or not you're together and instead what the hell is wrong with you both. SO THERE, PLAN THWARTED.

I thought Robert Pattinson was so cute in Harry Potter. Twilight ruined it for me. I believe it was the scene where Bella walks into the classroom, and it looks as though Edwards bowels became impacted when he looked at her.
Interesting pair though. I like Kristen Stewart because she doesn't care about the Hollywood scene. She does her job, and until Twilight, did it well. I cannot imagine however, how long this relationship would last with all of the crazies out there trying to go after Robert. That would have to get annoying.

Aaah. But you only think the plan is thwarted. In reality, that is the plan. To overload the gossip circuits so much with the are they-aren't they crap that in the end no one cares. Then they can have a normal life. With 3 million screaming 15 year olds. But still. More normal than now.

I'm relieved I'm not the only adult saying, "JUST TELL US ALREADY, WE ALREADY KNOW YOU ARE." I don't lose my shit over Robert, I'm not exactly into the tortured-soul business he is all about and Kristen's constant grimace isn't really doing a whole lot for her clearly-beautiful face. So, if they are or they aren't, my opinions on them will remain the same.

But really, if it wasn't true, they'd likely vehemently deny it. Instead, their "no comment" attitude is reminiscent of the Brangelina days. I guess we'll just have to wait until they adopt a handful of kids together for confirmation.

I have never seen such a fuss being made over whether or not two grown ass adults were fucking or not. A tip? Most of us don't care. We just want to look at the pretty

...sparkly vampire.

Damn hopping cursor.

Jennie


Wow, OK, point taken.

JennC

Did that come across bitchy? Gah, I SO did not mean it to! I totally agree with you!

I need to stop commenting today. Apologies.

I watched R.P. on the Today show one morning, in an attempt to get the whole hoopla (I didn't. And don't.). Whomever the interviewer was went through a series of quick True/False questions, inc. one about what's-her-name (Too lazy to scroll up and she was only referred to as his co-star). He said it was true that they were engaged.

There ya go. Proof, in a remembering-only-basic-details, sort-of way.

Layla

He was totally joking on that interview. He answered a bunch of other questions with silly answers.

DianaCLT

Oh well. Shows what I know about sparkly vampire actor types.
