literature: vampire chronicles

How can people link Vampires™ to Twilight when Anne Rice literally created the vampire version of the kardashians before the kardashians even existed.
Like we have the ambiguous 17 yrs old lookin who’s in love with an alcholist with purple eyes, two gay drama queens in love (but that constantly try to kill each other) who adopt a little girl out of nowhere and other vague family members that we’re going to name The Straights™ who don’t really like the youngest and gayest of the gang. Also let’s not forget that everyone hates Drama Queen #1 Lestat but they all listen to his music and even buy his book.
