What you see before you is a blatant bid for internet traffic.
We here at the 'Geek do not endorse or support sparkly vampires and their emo girlfriends, but we recognize that the people who do are legion and we are not so principled that we're not willing to take a swing and try to grab some extra views by featuring the queen of their cult as this week's cheesecake.
Yes, as much as it pains me to say it, please say hello to Kristen Stewart.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past decade, you know that Ms. Stewart stars as Bella Swan in the teen vampo-romance series of Twilight
Now, I've not read any of the books or seen any of the movies, but from what I can tell, Ms. Stewart must choose between the love of a vampire and that of a werewolf. That premise was much more enjoyable when it featured Kate Beckinsale in black leather.
I'm just saying.
What we have learned through the long, sparkly, mopy hostage situation that is Twilight
is that Ms. Stewart can sulk with the best of them. Of course, if certain pictures are to be believed she's good at a few other things (nudge...nudge...wink...wink...knowhatimean).
Say no more!
Having long since burned any and all good will she might have banked from Adventureland
and The Runaways
, Ms. Stewart seems to realize that she's got to leave the goth-mance ghetto behind if she's EVER
going to reclaim her career. If the early buzz on On the Road
is any indication, she might make it.
Then again, it could all be Jumper
from here on out.
Time will tell.
So, in closing, substitute the word "featuring" for "loving" in this video by Joan Jett, who Ms. Stewart did a fine job portraying, and we can all move on.
