Jackson Rathbone On Vamp Radio Today!

"It is with great pleasure that Vamp Radio announces a special Saturday night show of "Twilight Hour". Please join us this Saturday at 4:00 pm EST or 9:00 pm EST for a live interview with Jackson Rathbone! Jackson, who plays Jasper Cullen in the movie "Twilight", will join us for the first 30 minutes. Right now, we have yet to confirm what time works best for Jackson's schedule, so we'll be editing this post when we confirm the time.

So please join us in welcoming Jackson to Vamp Radio! We'll be asking many of your questions and, time permitting, will allow for the fans to call in and ask Jackson a question directly. So tell all your Twilight friends to join us for this special broadcast of Twilight Hour with Jackson Rathbone. Hope to see you there!

Please e-mail your questions to If you have any thoughts of calling in to ask Jackson your question directly, please include your name and phone number. We will not be accepting any callers that have not been pre-screened. This is a result of this past Tuesday's show, were several callers disrupted the flow of our show and were very disrespectful towards all Twilight fans. We do not wish for this to happen again, especially when Jackson has been gracious enough to join us live.

You could also post your questions here, if you'd rather not call in and would prefer the hosts to ask your question on-air to Jackson. We will do our best to get an answer for everyone's questions, but with only 30 minutes, we may not get to every question."

Go here to listen.

Robert Pattinson The Hottest Celebrity In 2009

Liz Smith reports on Fox News that Rob is the "super celebrity" of 2009.



Rob Is A "Sexy Vampiro"

This is a Rob interview for Columbia. It's worth watching just to hear him say, "sexy vampiro."


New Twilight Scans From German "Bravo" Magazine

Next week's issue of Bravo will have an Edward Poster in it.



Sam Bradley Portrait Magazine Interview

Portrait Magazine interviewed Sam Bradley, who co-wrote "Never Think" with Rob & is one of Rob's best friends. Here's an excerpt:

You wrote 'Never Think', on the Twilight soundtrack, with Robert Pattinson - and then you apparently went in completely different directions when recording it. How did that happen - is there an original version?
The original version is just sort of bits and pieces of when we were writing it. So, no, there's no real original version. What it is, is we wrote a song... I came back to Canada, and kind of switched it up a little bit for myself. Melodically, what we originally wrote is probably closer to my version. But Rob, when he plays music, he's really in touch with what he's doing, so he plays a song differently every time. Any song, it'll never sound the same. It's really cool, he's really in the moment. So the recording of Never Think that he did will never sound the same again, which is kind of interesting. Lyrically, though, it's similar.

It's funny, because you can never understand what he's singing. So it's really interesting to listen to your version and say, "Oh, that's what he's saying!"
I don't think anyone has guessed the lyrics right yet. I've been on YouTube, and I've been reading what people think are the lyrics. Even the first line, I don't think I've read the right first line yet. I mean, he sings it like that because that's how it comes out. I personally love it. I mean, I know what he's saying. There's a feeling behind it, like he's singing it to that person that he's talking to.

Go here to read the full interview.

This is Sam's version of "Never Think" - it's called "Too Far Gone." He sang it in Vancouver on New Year's Eve.

Celebrity Love Awards 2008 Results

Robert Pattinson came in 2nd place in the Popstar Celebrity Love Awards. First place went to the Jonas Brothers. Many other cast members & Stephenie Meyer were in the top 15 including:

#4 - Stephenie Meyer
#7 - Kristen Stewart
# 8 Taylor Lautner
#13 - Ashley Greene
#14 - Cam Gigandet
#15 - Kellan Lutz

Popstar had this to say about the results, ".....this is certainly cause for celebration for the Twilight fandom. Robert Pattinson was inches away from taking first place; the Twilight fandom did not become involved in the contest until much later in this year. That, in and of itself, speaks volumes!"

So, now we have a full year to be involved so lets make Rob #1 in 2009! Go here for all the results & for info on the 2009 contest.

Twilight A Hit With Legs.....

Rotten Tomatoes has their weekend box office wrap up & Twilight is mentioned.

Also notable.....was the vampire blockbuster Twilight surpassing the total gross of fellow November hit Quantum of Solace. Just a month ago, nobody would have guessed that the modestly-budgeted $37M teen saga would go on to outgun the latest James Bond film and its $200M+ budget. Twilight grossed an estimated $4.5M this weekend, down only 13%, for a $167.1M domestic total while Quantum fell 29% to an estimated $1.5M pushing its cume to $164.3M. Overseas, of course, is another story with the 007 actioner having a $300M advantage, but Stephanie Meyer fans have given the film industry something that is rare nowadays - a hit with legs. For the year, Twilight ranks as the eighth biggest blockbuster of 2008.



CNN's Top 10 Entertainment Stories Of 2008

Twilight comes in at #10 on CNN's list of Top 10 Entertainment Stories Of 2008:

10. "Twilight"

This year's literary frenzy had nothing to do with a boy wizard and everything to do with a love affair between a human and a vampire. The first movie based on Stephenie Meyer's books did just fine, too.

Read the rest here.

Jackson Rathbone Interview On The Set Of 'Dread"

Pics From The Twilight Display At Planet Hollywood NYC

Thank you Jen & friends! I'm so jealous! Not to mention they got to see Equus, with Daniel Radcliffe. *dies*


Teens Pick Best & Worst Of 2008

Life in Perspective teen board made list of their top 5's of 2008 in 11 categories. Here's the TW category:

Awkward 'Twilight' bits

- Bella in her undies: Let's face it, the majority of "Twilight" viewers were there for Edward, so showing a little underwear was entirely unnecessary.

- Edward sees Bella in biology class: Judging by his reaction to meeting Bella, we'd say Edward suffers from epilepsy, rather than love.

- "Say It": Edward knows he's a vampire, Bella knows he's a vampire; we know he's a vampire. There's got to be a better way to remind us all of this.

- Vampires in the sunshine: Apparently, vampires don't die in the sun. They just get showered with arts and crafts glitter.

- Jessica tries on prom dresses: No, that dress does not make your chest look good.

LOL! Thanks for keeping it real guys! To see their other categories go here.



Twilight T.V. Show A Hoax

YeHey (a Philippine search engine & portal) is reporting in it's Buzzbox that the report about a Philippine 'Twilight' tv series is a hoax.

"Buzzbox clarified with ABS-CBN Corporate Communication Head Bong Osorio and after checking with ABS-CBN Television Head Cory Vidanes categorically stated: "There is no plan for ABS-CBN to remake 'Twilight.'"
