This is (probably not) going to be the last thing I ever write about Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson collectively, because not only am I sick of the crazy love games these two forever seem to be playing, I'm beginning to believe that their entire relationship has just been one big love game, carefully crafted for hopelessly romantic Twi-hards who so wanted to believe these two were the real deal. Here's where we're at right now, guys: According to pretty much every media outlet in the world, Kristen and Rob have indeed already broken up, but they're just waiting for the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 DVD release to make their big announcement.
Okay, A) Gross. And B) Is this really necessary? Isn't the Twilight saga, and all the DVDs and dolls and cookware that go along with it, already a juggernaut? Will admitting they're not together really put a dent in sales?
Throughout Rob and Kristen's entire relationship -- the ups, the downs, everything -- there has been constant speculation regarding the authenticity of it. IE, was this all a smoke a mirrors show for publicity? Many, including myself, have found the timing of a lot of their relationship issues fairly suspicious. IE, why did they magically get back together right before the premiere of the last Twilight? Coincidence? I think not. And they never, ever once confirmed or denied anything in the entire lifespan of their romance (except for that weird public apology Kristen released regarding cheating on Rob). They've always been an "are they or aren't they? ooh, let's hope they are!" kind of couple. And they always seem to be "on" just when they need to be.
If they've already broken up, Christ, just tell everyone. Shout it from the rooftops. Wear a t-shirt proclaiming it. Tweet it. As sad as it is for some people, Twilight is done. It's over. Yes, the DVD for the final installment still needs to be released, but that's it. I hardly think that's something to "stay together" for. People will buy it and cherish and makeout with it regardless.
In a way, I feel bad for Rob and Kristen, as I'm sure what they tell the media and when isn't all their doing. It has to be a massive pain in the ass to keep something a secret, especially when it pertains to a relationship, simply for the sake of publicity. If they broke up, I feel bad. But I hope this time is the last. It seems exhausting to be them -- whether their relationship is fake or not.
Do you think Rob and Kristen aren't always truthful about their relationship?
