New pictures got me excited. My creative juices started flowing and I need to weave and connect again.
I am not going to call bluff on Rob, especially if he is working so hard to tell me he is with this woman. I am most inclined to take that Rob the funny man is doing the third option of my theory from the last post. i.e. “He is steel strong in protecting his personal life from media eyes, confuse the public and take the shit on himself to support his wife’s career”, at the same time help an artist.
I am also convinced that he has the blessing and help from his wife and friends who have not yet mumbled a word about this so called artist. It looks like a big set-up from all sides if you know what I mean.
They are happy.
Rob is having fun with the paparazzi, and by doing so everyone is happy (except Robsteners of course). Why do we want to deny his fun? He is doing the pranking, messing with tabloids and fans who have been stalking his every move, his every haircut, fashion mishap, scrutinizing his crotch/pants (totally disrespectful btw I should add) . What is the difference between a ‘loving fan’ and a tabloid when they are both not treating celebrities like human, but an object for entertainment, sexual fantasies and illusions. The only difference is financial. Tabloids do it for a living, fans don’t get money from this objectification; they get gratification for being right in their theories, for fulfilling their fantasies at the expense of ignoring the integrity of these people. And both co-exist and are co-dependent. I know I am widely categorizing ‘loving fans’ which include admirers only of their work, the people who are rooting for them in their personal lives because of the epic love which we have witnessed in the past, and also some people who seems to be born of hate and jealousy of complete strangers. Tabloids are happy because it is payday! Only when Robert Pattinson is in the pictures then they are worth money because then all the robsessed and RP fans will slurp them up like gold. I shall not elaborate how happy Twigs is, because her work/ music nor her personality appeal to me at all. (I could totally do a separate post dissecting her music and interviews if I want to).
And most importantly, Kristen is happy. She glowed at HFA, and judging from the joyful voice she said she is into her painting and working with her hands, I am content to know that she is in a good place. No one in the eye of the storm of gossips and tabloids have time and peace of mind to pursue other interests. She is not looking haunted and guarded in her pictures during interview like when people kept asking her “are you ok?” post-Rupertgate at TIFF, her kurt ‘I am fine’ respond to shut up concerned fans/journalists are a world of difference with the confident Kristen today. She is a lady embracing the world and loving it.
I don’t mind being the “not-so-happy part” of the picture when every stake holder in this drama is happy. I am only a fan who admires and cares for these two people. It is show business after all. We are supposed to be entertained not sad, upset and hurt over pictures posted by tabloids or fans and hounding paparazzi.
Rob seemed to have sorted out his wardrobe dilemma. At the beginning of this PR tour, he seemed to say that he is embracing changes with a new wardrobe (might I say I first suspected a jilted person’s first reaction is to have a new haircut and new wardrobe). Then I realised that he switched from his PR costume (strange Danish designers and newly bought French couture) right into normal Rob mode (black bomber jacket, white t shirt, Adidas shoes) on the same day being caught by paparazzi, just with different people. Very strange for a costume change in front of the lenses for someone who is just out normal walking and eating. When he is with T, he had a persona, cocky and smirking, sometimes smiling even to the camera. When he is in normal Rob mode, he has that dangerous glare. Sometimes you get a whiplash on this dual personalities, well that is all Rob, doing his job. ACTING!
In my last post I touched a lot about depression and other mental issues, and one concerned ‘loving fan’ has been harping on my accusation of Rob being bipolar a few times in Robsessed discussion. Thanks for that! My intention was not to classify Rob as a ‘case’, I only want to highlight that beyond the cameras, flashlights and all those glamour, there are real people who are fighting darkness and inner demons just like normal people everyday, and most came out triumphant after overcoming and addressing their illness, some did not because people around them were too late to help them. No one knows how dark these demons are, only people closest to them and most importantly they themselves could pull them out of that ‘permanent funk’. I am/was concerned about how these 'change of personality’ for the sake of pranking us/media is going to affect Rob’s psyche in the long run, or his relationship or his career. Only as a concerned (maybe to some delusional fan). I am hoping his circle of friends and family are on his back for this.
Now back to the wardrobe talk, I found that Rob is upping his game and being more comfortable in his ‘role now’. He held her hands more, and even added occasional ass cupping. Well, that is all in HD from paparazzi photos which we have seen. Sometimes I really need to heed the advice from Angelina Jolie ‘if it is not from the NY times, don’t bother’.
We are so taken in by the content that we did not realised this showmance is all documented by highly professional photography tools. Not many normal people can afford those, they are all backed by media houses and conglomerates who pay these ‘photographers’ and in return hope to get the best pictures to sell the best money making stories. Sex, violence and scandals sell. Happily married man does not, and not a single pap cares about their careers or I suspect even ever watched one movie either Rob or Kristen made. Rob is also looking happier in fan photos. He is continuing his tour with his ‘reportedly girlfriend’.
I BELIEVE in real account stories, honest experience and encounters with stars unplanned. I believe her observations and enjoyed her passionate account. I believe in the guy who said Kristen took a photo of him and Rob, asking people to respect his privacy while awaiting the birth of his first child. I believe in back-stories, without a need to say ‘pic or it did not happen’ from any side of the media and fandom, in real people, real encounters, and real lives.
Thanksgiving is coming up. I am thankful for the good lesson that Angelina Jolie taught me about differentiating media. Thankful for Rob for showing us how to play the paparazzi to his benefit; for once he can sell the story he wants ‘hey go check out my new gf’’s music and concerts!’. Thankful for Kristen for giving us such an insight into her professional world, how she picked her roles, how passionate she feels about her work, and challenge us to ‘judge away’. Thankful for the fans who stood by both these actors (do note that I did not mention celebrity). They don’t want to be celebrities, they want to act and make movies.
I sent a mail to Mama Nails earlier before the pictures come out, still does not change my mind on an ‘imagination gone wild Thanksgiving’.
My happily ever after ending to this drama on Thanksgiving is a picture posted by Scott (Kristen’s PA) on his Instagram, sitting around dinner with Robert ,Kristen, T, BP, OG and the dogs. (I feel the need to exclude the child in this because that would defeat the purpose of PRROB ).
♪♫♪••.♪♫♪ Thank You for Being My Friend ♫♪•.¸¸.•´¯`•.♪♫
Let’s chat a bit about friendship. Friendship is a powerful thing! We all need friends……they help us when we got through tough times and we’re there for them during their tough times as well. Actually…..we get the good, the bad, & the ugly…….from celebrations to the death of a love one and everything that is in-between.
Some have a large group of friends…..some that have been with each other since they were in diapers……and others……might have a small group…..doesn’t matter…….big or small……they are there for us and we for them.
Now…..let’s talk about that great group of friends Rob & Kristen have. The OG-Brit Pack!!! The OG side….comes from K & the Brit Pack comes from R. Interesting thing about this group…..over the years that have gotten tighter with each other….not just R or K….but actually with EACH other. So much so……there seems to have had at least two romances bloom because of the intermingling between them…..Jack & Suzie and Dakota & Jamie.
What is interesting to observe from them…..is well…..since that “fake-up” the media put out there last year in May……they have become even tighter…..visiting each other across the pond……without R or K….hanging out with either R or K when R or K are filming a movie……like when R was in Australia….the Brit guys came & hung out with K. R has been out & about with some of the OG during K filming different films or when at Paris fashion week. I mean….some of R’s childhood friends were with K on the set of SM when in Germany & Switzerland. Honestly…..don’t believe that would have happened if RK split the way the MEDIA said they did. And then, you get Nettie who sketches pics & even did one of K and but that very one she had done in her show in London back in Dec. 2013. Rob was there…..and maybe I am nuts….but I just don’t think she would have done that….again…if RK split….she would have been respectful of R’s feelings since she is one of his childhood friends.
Got to give credit to a friend of mine My# for this next part…..as it tells a lot…….. The other night, I looked at all their IG’s (OGs & BPs) that I follow (the major players and some of the smaller ones) - and listed who they each follow - if I was looking at a BP member, I’d see who they were following for the OG and vice versa. The only one, who no one in the OG follows for the BP, is Sam. He is literally the odd man out and I find this very telling. Marcus is way more in with them and vice versa. Marcus and Kristen still follow each other (wish I could underline this for emphasis). The only one who seems to have recently unfollowed, is Suzie from Sam & Marcus, but, everyone else is fine. Suzie still follows the known BP girls) Heck, Marcus even follows Alicia and Alannah. Suzie’s bf Jack, is friends with a ton of the OG). This alone, should prove, that all is not what it seems with Rob and “she who won’t be named” and that all is more than OK with him and Kristen. You don’t have to look far for clues. The circle of friends, should be enough, for if the couple who brought all of them together, was no more, or had a serious problem as of late, you’d think that you’d see some, unfollowing, especially Kristen and Marcus etc. Oh, and Jamie and Kristen follow each other too. This is so very telling to me……all those dots she was able to connect.
One more thing…….dear Dakota. She is a gem of a gal. She is friends with both KRISTEN & ROB. She has hung out with each separately….and TOGETHER…..K….Dallas show, just recently at the Q&A at NYU….but was also with the BOTH of them in NY at that time as well…….She just a few days before seeing Kristen in NYC, when Kristen was there for NYFF, said in an interview, she wanted to hang with Kristen & Rob. And corrected the interviewer, when he used RPattz, saying she doesn’t call him that and finds it rude. Would she seriously do that, if there was something going on between Rob and “she who must not be named?”
Jamie has been just as much with the BP and “she who must not be named” (in NYC in Aug., and during the week she was in LA to do the video & WuTang" concert……which DAKOTA was at as well….right there with ROB!!!!! . If this isn’t a sign enough…
You might say…..oh good grief….you are just crazy. I may well be crazy….but if RK…..who are loved & fully supported & protected by this big eclectic group friends…….had really split the way the MEDIA said that they did……..then, this group would not be as open to all on IG & such as they are.
RK are truly lucky to have each other as well as this big melting pot of friends!!
